New Computer

Post by Skywatcher on Sat Dec 23, 2017 5:28 pm

OK, I have a new computer, and I need to get NWN and Aenea on it, what is the easiest way to get NWN and Aenea files uploaded to it? Is it possible to copy my current NWN folder to my backup drive, then download it to my new computer, then go in and change settings to get it to work? Any advice greatly appreciated.

On my current system, my brother re-installed the old hard drive as a way to retain old games; seemed to work fairly well, though my NWN1 installation is glitched for some unknown reason.

Yes - you can do a straight copy of the NWN directory to the new computer. If you made changes to the ini files for things specific to your old system (Such as graphics card settings, firewall or CPU affinity) then you may need to readjust those, but the game should run.

By the way, Merry Christmas to all my fellow Aeneans!

OK, I had to reinstall NWN from scratch, redo the critical rebuild, and now it works. So how do I get the q updater and all the rest working again? What files/directories do I need to copy from the old install to the new install?

Odd... when I upgraded my rig I just did a straight copy and everything worked fine. I've read posts from others they did the same and it worked. If your game was fully patched, you shouldn't need to add anything more. The all the additional content from Q and CEP should already be inside the NWN folder. 

More information here.
