NWN and the Windows 8 Consumer Preview (AMD)
« on: March 19, 2012, 02:04:47 AM »
So I recently installed the Windows 8 consumer preview to test some things out. NWN will not work without some tweaking so here's the troubleshooting steps I went through.

I have it running in compatibility mode with XP SP3
In the nwnplayer.ini I have the CPU affinity set to 0 (for multi core computers)

The preview will also install proprietary drivers and this will cause NWN to run like crap. AMD has released to a driver set for the preview and I have linked it below:

So if you are going to install the preview this is what I did to make sure NWN ran like it did before. Let me know if you have any questions.
