I'm using Windows 8. It's like playing on Windows 7, except you have to wear a dog cone... :-P

You and me both. Although it's looking more and more inevitable for me, I really think my rig's getting toward the end of its useful lifespan. Look at it this way though... the OS change will suck, but having a new computer will be kind of exciting, since technology has advanced enough that stuff your current system can't run, your new system should run without a hiccup. ;)

I was always dreading it

..and was right! When I changed GFX card in my old XP computer with new one THE GAME stopped working :/

Fortunately my Win7 laptop runs without problems :D

win7 but I am still using

win7 but I am still using winXP on my older laptop, but I guess after it dies from old age (8years old acer and still working lol!) I will replace it with win7 in the end... it was a good system, but the more I work win7 I get used to it actually (after disabling like 100 features and installing Class Shell of course!!!)

Win7 64 Bit, runs like a champ, client crashes far less than old XP comp did, and toolset is exponentially faster...

 

Just get a $40 Nvidia GT650 Video Card if You want nwn stability (runs fallout new vegas and skyrim just fine)

 

Using both Classic Shell and Dexpot Multi-Desktop (and Start Button Changer + Orbs as well for GUI)

As a funny note, even old

As a funny note, even old Win98 laptops can still host 169 nwn1 dedicated servers (even if they cant load toolset, pc or dm client)

 

Linux still seems to be the OS of choice for hosting large PWs

(and probably will continue to be the best option in the forseeable future)

Mac OS from day 1

Been running on Mac Os since the game was ported. I also have the game on an old very slow netbook (win 7).

Now using WineHQ/Wineskin to play on Mountain Lion (did not try latest OS, feedback appreciated) thanks to Doh123 wrapper and intructions.

I'm using w7. And almost every old game doesn't work. So i hate every new os after xp.

Why can I only choose 1 of

Why can I only choose 1 of them? I have dual boot machine and use both XP and win7. Apart from a strange glitch in win7, with the atari logo when I launch NwNMain (OK so the launcher screws up royally), I don't have a problem. Might be a different matter when I change my motherboard/cpu/ram and install the full retail version of win 10 64 bit...

I finally found the solution

I finally found the solution to a Windows 8.1 problem that's been bedeviling me for months. Sometime during a work session the desktop clipboard and drag/drop capability will just stop working. I was unable to copy/paste or drag between folders. I've had it happen even with new applications, never mind NWN/NWN2. This is a total headache when I'm testing content modifications. To fix it I had to resort to shutting everything down and rebooting. Grr...

Well no more. The fix is as simple as hitting the 'esc' key -- after that the desktop clipboard goes back to normal.

Bugger. Thanks Microsoft for the "fix".

Ed.: I'm retracting the part about copy/paste, because the 'esc' key doesn't fix it. PoS. Grr...

No Windows 10 option?

To be fair, when you see a poll on the front page you normally assume it's a new one...

Probably my fault for not checking timestamps when I went to reply but my mind was distracted elsewhere at the time.

Maybe i'ts a good time to have another poll?

I propose:

1. What is your favourite way to play NWN (SP, PW, both, neither - just cc creator)

2. Your longest NWN session (2 hr, 10 hr, etc)

3. Poll about polls - what kind of polls do you want (CC polls, Scripts, some of  I listed above)?wink
