Need To Update New Game

I just purchased Neverwinter Nights 2 Platinum and I need to manually add the patches.  Which ones do I need?  Where do I go to find them?  And how do I update the game manually? 

As you can tell, I need a good bit of help, but it will be greatly appreciated.

Well there is a Patch tab in the top bar. But when I tried loading: NWN2 - Bioware - PC - English - Any, it didn't show anything. I'm not sure why not.

Personally, I already skipped the whole patching mess by re-purchasing the complete release from GoG. It's cheap at just $8.

Patches are under "Obsidian" instead of "Bioware", so simply set it to "Any"

Don't know if it makes sense :/

GADZOOKS!!! That's a lot of files! Do I need all of them? And what do I need to do with them once I download them? (I have no experience doing this.) Thanks again! Scourge2

You don't need all, first you need to know 2 things:

1) your game version

2) what expansions you have

then filter by expansions

then download patches that go from your version to newest, probably will be something like:

patch your version to 1.1

patch 1.1 to 1.2

patch 1.2 to 1.3 etc. ...

If it's an older version there can easily be a dozen or so patch files that you need to load in sequence in order to get to the final patch version, and they all need to load correctly. I've been there, and it is a bit of a pain. That's why I went with GoG.

The lowest patch number we have is 1.00788 - so I hope this is yours.  You need to download offline patcher and.. scrap that I'm not sure myself for platinum edition with 2 expansions I can't find ver 1.00788 to eanything, but everything looks nice for OC only:

Might need to look up the patches yet again >.<
Rjshae, do you know if you can patch with OC patches and then go with XP1+XP2 patches from the available version?

You can try. I ran into difficulties by the time I was loading the XP2 patches.

Since you have the Platinum version with 2 expansions, it's much more efficient to install both expansions first, which will leave you with a higher version number (start the game after installing the expansions to see which one), and then start patching manually the rest of the way up to 1.23.  You won't need to install nearly as many patches.

Is the list Werelynx posted last June available anywhere else on the Vault?  It used to be a Sticky on the BSN NWN2 boards and very easy to find.  (I can't subscribe to a topic on the forums so I may not remember how I found it.)

Madness... a blessing for the chosen few.

Sorry to bother you all, but I downloaded mine from GoG (I think, more on that in a sec), but I think I have files missing. The reason I think I have missing files is, I seem to be missing a few spells (e.g. the Animalistic Power(?) one that gives +2 to all physical stats, all the ORB spells are missing and others). When I play any mod that has those spells for sale, I can buy their scrolls, read the spell descriptions, but I cannot sell them (worth 0 gold), and I cannot scribe them to my book OR even cast them from the scroll. I can't learn them as I level up either. I have access to ALL four campaigns, so I don't think that is the issue. I say I THINK I have downloaded the files from GoG as I don't know where the files are located. All I have is the empty files you add mod stuff to (modules, overrides, campaigns, etc.), which I have. So my probem is, as I see it,

A: how do I check what version of the game I have (I assume its the highest as it was from GoG, but I never had this issue before I reformatted my computer and re-downloaded the game a second time);

and B: where would I find the ACTUAL files for the game itself? I assume I have them right? Or does GoG only give me access to them through their service?

Any help would be appreciated. Cheers

Lub U ;)
