Animation Fix

The Animation FIX for HotU seems to help with client crashes. Make sure you follow the installation instructions (one file needs to be removed). UPDATE: According to BioWare, the client crash due to other players coming out of stealth (that required these animations to avoid) has been fixed with patch 1.69.


NWNWiki

NWNWiki and NWN2Wiki are Neverwinter Nights databases that anyone can edit. They includes detailed game information including information on every class, race, spell, feat, and skill in the game.

Teamspeak Servers

Raralith hosts Teamspeak servers for use by all BoW players.

New to Teamspeak? Please find the FAQ and program download at www.goteamspeak.com.

Some general rules for Teamspeak:
  • Please use headphones; otherwise see here to make your microphone less sensitive and not activate when using speakers. This is a quick fix though, so please get a very cheap pair of headphones.
  • If people cannot hear you: Guide for adjusting your microphone loudness.
  • If your sound card is having problems (i.e., not working, making weird noises, lots of static, etc.): Guide to switching your microphone to your on-board sound.
  • Please use the appropriate server channel. If you are playing on Good, please use the Good Teamspeak channel, and vice versa.

Teamspeak Server (instructions to connect)
IP: ts.bastionsofwar.com:8868 or 69.31.6.200:8868
Password: See the guild forum topic

If you need help, you can contact Raralith on MSN: Dhameon@Hotmail.com, AIM: FrostBytzeX, or IQC: 295596088.


2da Files

These altered 2da files are used on the BoW server:
restduration.2da: Reduces the rest duration to nearly instantaneous.
classes.2da: Removes class alignment restrictions.
spells.2da: Removes the somatic components for the Amplify and War Cry spells (like the bugged version prior to patch 1.69).
feat.2da: Changes the Dragon Shape feat prerequisite of Wild Shape 6x/day to 5x/day (like the bugged version prior to patch 1.69).

You may also want to use custom portraits.2da & soundset.2da files (such as this one), so you may select the portraits and soundsets of NPCs and creatures during character creation.

Just place the 2da files in your NWN override directory, and they will be active for local games. Please note that the 2da files can interfere with hak packs and other servers, so you may want to remove them before playing elsewhere.

(You do not need to download these files to play on BoW.)
