Essential improvements[edit]

Skip intro videos[edit]

Edit nwn.ini[3]
  1. You can simply delete or move all the files in the <installation folder>movies or
  2. Go to your <My Documents folder>Neverwinter Nights 2
  3. Open nwn2.ini.
  4. Go to [Display Options]
  5. Add the line to the end of that section: Disable Intro Movies=1
  6. Save your changes.

Restore original opening video[edit]

Edit nwn.ini[4]
  1. Note the expansions packs and complete edition broke the games ability to display the opening video. If you only have the expansions and not westgate module you could use the linked workaround, however it will disable the Westgate intro and ending videos, so it's better to follow these manual steps:
  2. Open the <installation folder>movies
  3. Rename or delete AtariLogo.bik
  4. Rename Intro.bik to AtariLogo.bik
  5. The opening move will now play first when you launch the game. You can safely revert the changes or delete it after you've viewed it.

Issues fixed[edit]

TweakGuides has created a comprehensive guide for fixing issues in this game.

Running on a non-primary partition/hard disk[edit]

In Windows, if you are running Neverwinter Nights 2 off of any drive other than the C: drive, there are special system requirements for the game. In addition to the 5.5 GB of free hard-disk space required to install the game on your selected drive, you will need an additional 2-5 GB of free hard disk space on drive C: during run-time. Not having 2-5 GB free on drive C: while playing Neverwinter Nights 2 can cause the following issues:

  • Unable to Left-Click in main campaigns
  • Unable to use Actions in main campaigns
  • Unable to exit first room in main campaigns
  • Able to complete tutorial, but upon completion the game will not load the main campaigns.

Various Bug Fixes / Improvements[edit]

This extension fixes many bugs associated with the game, including choppy camera movement and animation glitches. In addition, it significantly improves multiplayer functionality. Details can be found on the download site.http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn2/other/nwn2-client-extension

Notes

  1. This version of StarForceDRMdoes not work on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.[1][2] For supported versions of Windows the StarForce driver may need to be updated manually using SFUPDATE.
  2. 2.02.1File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/2760/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (2760) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

This is a rough guide for setting up a new online NWN2 server.

There are a lot of sections that would need to be improved / more detailed. Don't hesitate to edit this page and add anything.


  • OS: Windows XP or later. Linux or Mac can run nwn2server using Wine, but nwnx4 does not work. In this
  • Processor: Since nwn2server is single threaded (i.e. it will use only one core), you need the highest frequency possible on a single core. The required frequency vary greatly depending on the used scripts, module size, number of players, etc. but 2.5GHz should be enough for a medium sized module.
  • RAM: 4GB should be enough for windows + nwn2server + MySQL. Very large servers use 6GB.
  • Disk: Disk speed will impact both nwn2server boot time and run-time responsiveness when instantiating creatures, placeables, etc. SSD are probably the best since they allow to read small files very quickly compared to hard drive disks. If you have extra RAM, you can setup a ramdisk for even better performances.
  • Network: A fast network will improve player's area loading time.


You can install the NWN2Server using one of these methods:

Method 1: standard install

This is the easiest method, but will use more disk space than using Method 2.

  • Install the game using the disks / gog / steam installer
  • Make sure your game is up to date

Method 2: light server install

  • Copy the following files and folders from the a standard NWN2 install to a separate folder, keeping the same folder structure:
    • Campaigns/Neverwinter Nights 2 Campaign*/Campaign.cam
    • Data/2DA*.zip
    • Data/convo*.zip
    • Data/Ini*.zip
    • Data/lod-merged*.zip
    • Data/NWN2_Models*.zip
    • Data/scripts*.zip
    • Data/SpeedTree*.zip
    • Data/Templates*.zip
    • Data/walkmesh*.zip
    • dialog*.tlk
    • granny2.dll
    • mss32.dll
    • NWN2_MemoryMgr.dll
    • NWN2_MemoryMgr_amdxp.dll
    • nwn2.ini
    • nwn2player.ini
    • nwn.ini
    • nwnplayer.ini
    • nwnpatch.ini
    • nwn2server.exe
  • The created folder should now contain only the required files to launch a NWN2Server instance.
  • Install required windows libraries: directx 9, dotnet3.5


NWN2Server uses by default port 5121.

If your server runs behind a NAT (like an internet access provider router), you will need to configure the router to redirect 5121 to your server hosting machine.

Also make sure your firewall allows port 5121.


  1. Download nwnx4 on the official website
  2. Extract the zip file somewhere on the system
  3. Edit nwnx.ini
    • nwn2: Path to the nwn2 installation folder
    • parameters: Command line parameters passed to the nwn2server process, like:
      • -module yourmodule automatically load yourmodule.mod
      • -moduledir yourmodule automatically load yourmodule if saved as directory
      • -cpu 3 Assign the nwn2server process to the CPU core 3

NWNX4 plugins

xp_bugfix (required)

Download Neverwinter Nights 2 Free

Required for displaying the server in the in-game server list (using the Client Extension). Also comes with a bunch of server bug fixes and optimization (a must have !)

  1. Download the latest version of the plugin on the forum page
  2. Extract the zip file and copy the dll and ini files inside the nwnx4 folder

xp_mysql (optional)

xpmysql is used by a lot of nwn2 servers as an efficient persistent database. You may not require it. You cannot use both xpmysql and xp_sqlite at the same time.

  • If you don't need a MySQL server, remove xp_mysql.dll and xp_mysql.ini
  • Otherwise install a MySQL-compatible server (https://mariadb.org/ is probably the best) on the server, and edit the xp_mysql.ini file:
    • server: MySQL server IP address
    • user: MySQL user for executing queries
    • password: user's password
    • schema: Default used MySQL schema

xp_sqlite (optional)

xpsqlite is used by some nwn2 servers as an easy to setup persistent database. You may not require it. You cannot use both xpmysql and xp_sqlite at the same time.

  • If you don't need SQLite, remove xp_sqlite.dll and xp_sqlite.ini
  • Otherwise edit xp_mysql.ini:
    • file Path to the file for storing the database file


You can change the server game rules by editing Documents/Neverwinter Nights 2/nwn2player.ini

Neverwinter Nights 2 Steam Removed

Here is an example of server options:


Let players automatically download / update their custom content files when they connect to a server:

Neverwinter nights 2 steam cd key


Neverwinter Nights 2 Steam

Simply launch NWNX4_GUI.exe from the nwnx4 folder, and you should see a NWN2Server window appearing.
