Big red blocks
« on: May 21, 2017, 12:06:49 PM »
Some of the objects in the world appear as large red blocks with no texture. Any advice?

My understanding is this is just the case with some video cards. I switch between two laptops and one of mine does this as well.

There are a few thread about this issue, you should make a small search of the forum about that. You might find something that can help.

Those of you who suffer the issue, could you go into your NWN subfolder called "override" and check if you have one or more files called "gui_transprnt", and if so, try to delete it or move it elsewhere, then check if that fixes it.

Wait, nevermind, found a better solution!

It'll be there for the next hak update, but if you are feeling brave, try downloading this hak and install it into your \hak folder, overwriting the existing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tq0ndhe2rd2ataq/rl_2da_v2_0b.7z?dl=0

Have any of you tried this yet? And if so, could you let me know if it works?

Thank you!

I gave it a try, seems to have cleared all the red blocks up for me entirely.

:cheer:

+2 to report this fixed my red block issue immediately! Thankyou Soren!

Side note: My computer refused to override the old file, and I had to go in, manually delete, then download the new file. So if you apply this fix, check the date on the file and make sure it is in fact the new one.
