NWN v.1.69 critical rebuild and more
Hello fellow players.

I have seen that people occasionally post requests for the 1.69 files. So I decided to post some links here which should (hopefully) be permanent.

Patch Links

Here you find all the files necessary for any system (Mac, Linux, Windows)

Just choose the file you need, though it will mostly be this one.

Another source is the NWN vault.
Here, you can find all the links to the files as well.

For NWN-vault, most people will need this file.

Non-english patching

I have found pages and files to update to 1.69 in different languages. These are usually beta versions and no official Bioware work! Enjoy with caution, I've read reports of a few bugs (For some, the game even broke).

German

Click here for a rebuild to german language.

Italian

I have found two pages for an italian version. Click here for an entirely italian documentation, or find the english variant here.

Spanish

Find the .tlk file for the spanish version here.

Other: 1.70

I have also found a player-made "1.70" patch which includes various language sets. Check this link to read through the details. This includes Russian, Czech, Polish and German.

Unlock portraits and voicesets

There is an unlocker hosted on NWN Vault. This is a new version of the unlocker, there are no blank or double portraits anymore. Enjoy.

You have to copy the files into the override-folder of your NWN-install directory. Not any sub-folder, they won't work if they aren't in the actual override-folder.
The portraits and voicesets you can choose will be seen by any and all players, since they are in the game and no custom portraits/voicesets!

1.69 Textures

Due to a request below, I want to add this. I have no idea if it is a proper fix, but this link leads you to the NWvault page where you can download all textures in .tga format, instead of the DDS format used in 1.69. Follow the instructions on the page.



Disclaimer: External links beyond my influence. The portraits and voicesets are additional content and not featured or encouraged by Arelith and its Team! Keep in mind that almost of all of this is not Bioware produced, but made by players and communities.

If you are tech savvy enough it would be really sweet if you could add this to the wiki Smile

I wouldn't know where to put, I guess there are people who know that better than I do. Smile

Also, the portrait and voiceset section has been added already.

For people who don't have english versions of the game, the different dialog files are quite important Wink

Re: NWN v.1.69 critical rebuild and more
Maybe we could request of Mith to have a few of the more major language ones added there too?

Otherwise this thread will eventually be lost

Re: NWN v.1.69 critical rebuild and more
As I understand it, any other language files are purely player-made. Which doesn't necessarily make them worse in quality, but might throw out bugs or simply refuse to work... I don't know exactly, in all honesty, maybe Mith can give some input on that. I saw something around the NWvault, a german version of the dialog file... I haven't tested it, but I shy to use it. (Mainly because I am quite fond of the english version of the game Smile )

Anyone knows what may be causing a texture bug with my friend's NWN? Unfortunately I don't know much about it since my computer is very compatible with NWN. We've tried a TGA replacement, video card update and critical rebuild.

Re: NWN v.1.69 critical rebuild and more
I would need the Critical Rebuild for the GERMAN version of NWN. Any of the Austrian / German players got that?
I tried to install the English version and it tells me, I have the wrong language...

The truth hurts, doesn't it? Wink

A cobra is a venomous snake belonging to the family elapidae. The name is short for cobra de capelo, which is Portuguese for "snake with hood", or "hood-snake".
