Returning PW builder. Need help

I used to run a custom NWN1 PW from 2003-2009 (ADRP if anyone remembers it). I have retrieved my old module and reinstalled NWN1 but I am unable to log in locally (ie test it as a stand alone module). It tells me the game and the module are different versions. Specifically that the module is running a more recent version and that I need to update NWN1.

I am running 1.69.8109.

I have the nwnenglish1.69hotuupdate (from here https://neverwintervault.org/patch/nwn1/english/nwn-sou-hotu).
After I ran it, and pulled up the updater the updater just tried to connect to bioware and timed out.

I also have nwnpatch171_4, which I updated the game to and still receive the mismatch error.4

In any event, after looking through the toolset I cannot for the life of me determine which version of NWN1 the current module was built under. Any help would be most appreciated.

It's been 10 years, I could really use a nudge in the right direction.

v/r,

Ek

You can open the module file with the NWhak tool located in the utils folder of your NWN installation. Inside each module (which is a package, like an erf), there is a file called module.ifo (which is what makes it different). This file lists information, such as the start location, the the module scripts, and the Mod_MinGameVer.

You can use the "export" function in NWhak to take the file and put it somewhere on your computer.

You will need a GFF viewer of some kind to view the contents of this IFO file, there are a few that can be found here on the vault. The one I usually use for stuff like this is TLKEdit-R13b.

Here's a link that includes the TLKedit utility, and many others. https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/other/tool/nwn-toolbox-editor-...
