Game won't launch
« on: April 13, 2020, 02:45:44 PM »
I have tried redownloading all the files and everything else I can think to do but the game won't launch. I click play and it just cancels the action. All of my other steam games will launch.

Try navigating to ...:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Neverwinter Nights\bin\win32

And double clicking 'nwmain.exe'.

If that does nothing at all, try verifying game files/reinstall.

Try just deleting the settings.tml file. 

I find when this happens it is because that file got corrupted.

You'll probably need to reset your graphics settings like resolution and such, but that has fixed it for me.

Reposting  this. Some reason the new Bioware update did sometging wierd where I couldn't execute nwn. M. CEASARS suggestion fixed that up fairly easy. I recommend if NWN doesnt work when you click the app to use his method.
