VIKING BERSERKER (Bear Warrior)

This is a mirror of the Epic Guild page, which it seems has now disappeared. I have added a link to my fan video of a shifter/werebear below/overleaf which was originally posted in my article, Rendering New Age Video, on this wiki.

The URL was http://home.comcast.net/~worldofgreyhawk/builds/data/build275446.html, I suspect that this is the best mirror that survives.

The Road to NWN2

This is now an old game but I need to move on to it, maybe to complete the circle and go back to BG2 in the Aurora engine. Over the summer of 2014, the NWN Vault, the community repository for Neverwinter Nights has just shut, and closed, the seemingly best alternative for user authored content is the new Neverwinter Vault, and this is supplemented by NWN2 at wikia.com. This page talks about character builds. Continue reading “The Road to NWN2”

Circular Icons for Objectdock

I use objectdock free on one of my XP systems and have just decided to install NWN2 complete. This meant I needed an icon for program launcher bar; actually it didn’t because the icon the GOG version ships with is fine. In order to prove this to myself I used google to look for some circular icons.

I found a bunch with white backgrounds and in .jpg format. Including this one.

The simplest way to make an icon for my purposes is to use Paint.net and this article at their forums details how to do it. Use the magic wand and edit >> cut, then save it as .png which is good enough for object dock.

Best copy the new .png to the object dock image library.

ooOOOoo

When checking out the image in order to post it in this article, I discovered that the host site has this as a .png with transparant background anyway, but the research is useful for the future.

WINE and NWN

This page is about my attempts to install NWN under WINE on my MAC. I finally got this working in March 2011 and then attempted to ensure that this page focuses on the NWN actions and runes, and that my WINE page deals with installing WINE on the MAC. I returned in 2014, to try and get NWN2 working. The page consists of several sections, my initial work in 2009, and the further work when I tried to install NWN2 after my Mavericks upgrade.

The sucessful install with Winery is documented in the section called Winery 2014. Continue reading “WINE and NWN”

NWN Class Builds

This snip originally collected some resources aimed at helping people take their characters through to level 40. It was re-written in 2007 in what was an unsuccessful attempt to re-ignite my interest in the game. It failed and I left it alone for a number of years, I had another look when I started NWN2. The links have degraded over time, firstly with bioware hack and so are no longer easily available , but later the Epic Guild site went away too.  The Epic Guilds recreated themselves at a new site, http://nwn2db.com.

An almost balanced party, of pure class character, from NWN/UTC

I need to rescue the links below, and what follows is the original content, now at least 7 years old. Dave July 2013 Continue reading “NWN Class Builds”
