NWN on Vista
« on: February 08, 2010, 09:16:55 PM »
A friend of mine is trying to get NWN to run on Vista. It'll install and run, but the graphics display incorrectly. Any tips?

Use a different operating system if it's viable (http://ubuntu.com, it's free)
Change the in game video settings.
Make sure the drivers are up to date (or at least do not have any known issues w/ NWN).
Set the compatibility to XP.
Make sure the video card is installed properly.
Make sure the card and/or system is not over-heating.
Replace video card.

Depends on what sort of problem your friend is running into. Where's it crashing? What error is he getting?
