Turning off Opening Movies
« on: July 25, 2011, 10:22:48 PM »
So, I'm trying to play, and the game keeps crashing if I try to click past the opening videos. I had this problem before, and someone told me how to turn off the opening videos, I just can't remember what they said. Also, I'm pretty sure this problem is because I use Vista. All problems with everything is Vista's fault.  ;)

Can anyone help me out?

That is really weird. If it was the intro movies itself doing that, you can turn those off in nwn.ini by setting Disable Intro Movies to 1 ( Disable Intro Movies=1 ) under [Config]. If it isn't there, add it on the last line before [Video Options]. I use a shortcut on my desktop directly to Ravenloft though, so I don't deal with those shenannigans D:

Heh, yeah, I just figured out how to do it on my own. Game works fine without them, just like last time I installed it.

Seeing you troll the forums is like 2005 all over again.

How does one set a desktop link directly to the server? >_>

Copy and paste this directly into your shortcut:

Hm I create a shortcut and paste that in and I get a message that says "Could not translate address." Am I doing something wrong?

EDIT: Indeed I was, do not click before the log in window shows up.
