Texture error after new NWN install
« on: March 31, 2012, 03:11:03 PM »
Finally I installed NWN anew but now I got weird errors:

- Textures from CEP houses seem missing - they appear white
- several armors appear metallic
- some CEP robes are static

I had reinstalled the latest CEP (2.4a) and all the POTM downloads twice by now. Did not help.

Any tips?

currently I run:
-: Curse of the Wolf :-
-: The Curse of von Zeklos :-

Sounds almost definitely like it's a CEP issue, check to make sure you have the latest

I found my OpenGL did not work. Perhaps that's the reason. Trying to figure out how to do it...

I downloaded the latest graphic card drivers but I still get the same error message that OpenGL could not be detected. I read on the net that there are some known problems with WIN7 and OpenGL. Anyone with suggestions?

Could fix the Open GL problem - however the graphic error remains. ..

hmm what kind of video card do you have?

EDIT: try using this: http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=Textures.Detail&id=109

TGA versions of all the textures since Bioware used a non-standard version of DDS textures that some manufacturers no longer support.

Thanks, this at least fixed the building textures, but the new CEP robes and some of the creature models are still static. I fear I need to reinstall everything and try it anew.  :?

Did you use the CEP updater? Its rumoured to be broken and corrupts your CEP files.

I tried complete reinstall of NWN. I tried complete reinstall of CEP. I downloaded the CEP and the Ravenloft haks five times now to no avail. I tried to copy the CEP files from my old folder to the new one. I used a full CEP download and no updater. I am really clueless by now...  :|

It ran fine under vista and it runs fine under win7 on my laptop. But it does not run on my desktop. The only other difference is that I got a new NWN copy since I lost my old one. But during the download of the new NWN I got no error message.

Something else I noticed is that certain placed transitions in areas are missing. Does that perhaps help anyone to tell me what's wrong with my NWN?

Have you tried running the game in Compatibility Mode?

Find the nwn.exe, right click, go to properties, and set it to operate under XP SP3.

Yeah I have also tried compatiblity mode - does not do it better. My video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS. I also have tried the latest drivers to no avail.

Next steps I plan to try is another monitor and perhaps install my new NWN on another pc. I am quite clueless.

You might want to try to rollback to an older driver then.

Will try to install a Win XP driver. Hope it works. Am even thinking about buying a new video card. Can anyone recommend any? Would not want to buy a top model - but just better than the one that I have currently.

I noticed, when I log in player-side that I can't move my chars and some of the clothes appear all mirror like.
