Title: NWN Enhanced Edition Open Test
Post by: Soren / Zarathustra217 on May 10, 2018, 12:23:23 PM
Greeting all fellow prisoners of the mist!

We are now finally ready to do our first major test of the NWN:Enhanced Edition. BeamDog has gone to great lengths to make sure that previous content remains compatible with the EE version, but with almost fifteen years of customizing this game, there are inevitably a lot of things that may potentially break. Therefore, we hope that all of you that are able will help evaluating and debugging this new version so that the eventual transition will go as smooth as possible.

To help us hunt down bugs and get an early taste of POTM:EE, you need the following:

- Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, available on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/704450/Neverwinter_Nights_Enhanced_Edition/) or at BeamDog's website (https://www.beamdog.com/products/neverwinter-nights-enhanced-edition) (recommended, also includes steam key). You need version 8166, which is the most recent non-developer build (so just let Steam or the BeamDog client update the game normally for you).

- Install our main download packages and this 2.20_test4 update package (https://drive.google.com/file/d/10xXmNyf_fHdoFoEMhOKtgilImu1vhbKc/view?usp=sharing). You need to place the files under "Documents \ Neverwinter Nights \ (respective subfolder)". The easiest way to get our main download packages is just to copy them from your existing (non-EE) install. Copy all the files under you "hak", "tlk" and optionally "portraits" and "override" folder to the respective folders of "Documents \ Neverwinter Nights", then copy the files from the above linked package, letting them overwrite the existing.

- Direct Connect to or find the server in the server list (as "Ravenloft - Prisoners of the Mist").

- Use the password "EETest" (without quotation marks) to get in.

You should find a copy of all your existing characters there. You will be given the option to level up to level 20 and granted permission to every prestige class. Make sure to verify that everything on your character works and if not post a bug report (if it's not there already). Please prefix the bug-report topic with the letters "EE".

Note that all that transpires during this test should not be considered in character and will not have any effect on the on-goings on the main server. Whatever happens to your character during this test will be reverted once we do the actual migration. You are welcome to still roleplay but you are not required to.

Best regards,

The Development Team

A new module version along with a new test hak is ready - get the new package here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/10xXmNyf_fHdoFoEMhOKtgilImu1vhbKc/view?usp=sharing

And install on top of what you currently have.

Please help us testing so we can track down any issues before we migrate. Note that your characters on the EE server has been restored to the current state on the main.

Things are progressing as planned, and right now the main thing we wait for is the next upcoming stable patch of NWN (it should be here within one to two weeks). Meanwhile, there are still a few bits here and there needs fixing, so we've updated the server along with our test download package.

Get the new version here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/10xXmNyf_fHdoFoEMhOKtgilImu1vhbKc/view?usp=sharing

Please help by testing whether the EE bugs reported already (http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?board=23.0) has been properly fixed - as well as report any new issues you may find. Remember to prefix any bug reports you post with "EE".

At this point, we are also very interested in you testing combat and exploring to see if everything works there.

Thank you in advance for your help!

While we wait for the next stable EE patch to arrive, we have a few more fixes and new features we would like for you to help us test. So please grab the following package and give all your characters a test run on the new server: https://drive.google.com/file/d/10xXmNyf_fHdoFoEMhOKtgilImu1vhbKc/view?usp=sharing

We will be ready to migrate any moment now, so stay tuned!
