As far as I know, there is no longer an updater provided.

Each patch will have to be manually downloaded and updated each step of the way by downloading the patch files located here -

http://neverwintervault.org/patches?field_game_tid=6&field_official_vers...

The search is preset for English, PC platform, NWN2 patches with all requirements - Original NWN2, XP1 and XP2.

So depending on what version of .115 you have (stock NWN2, NWN2+XP1 or NWN2+XP1+XP2), you want to find the patch from .115 to the next patch.

I don't believe there is a one-in-all patch for NWN2, meaning each individual patch has to be applied one after the other manually until you've updated it completely.

Certainly someone who knows more about NWN2 patching can give you better guidance.

FP!

Pretty much correct. I recommend just buying nwn2 from gog.com. It comes all patched up, and you get Mysteries of Westgate which is the Premium module and not included in other packs.

What Kamal said. When you add up the time it takes to download all the patches and get them loaded correctly (possibly having to start over if something goes wrong), it's just easier to use the GoG version.

That might be an option I just hoped I could use the copy I have so my son could enjoy it. Whats the deal with the downloader here then, I have no idea where to download it to, then it says place the files in the NWN2 installation folder which doesnt actually exist. I would like to try the manual update since that costs me nothing. Sorry but I have leukemia and money is tight here.

An installation folder has to exist, otherwise the game wouldn't be installed on that particular PC.

I believe the NWN2 installation folder is,

"C:\Program Files\Atari\Neverwinter Nights 2"

One of the NWN2 gurus will have to explain how to manually update the game, but perhaps it's just as simple as downloading a patch file, placing it in the above mentioned directory, loading the game and clicking an UPDATE button.

FP!
