I have installed NWN which does a good job at starting up.
but.......when I choose a character,click the play button and the map has loaded: nwn instantly quits, returning me to my console. The game does not leave any errors or what so ever to my console.
This also happens in the 'Options' menu when i click 'sound options' & 'Advanced video options'.
I'm using an up to date version of nwn on gentoo 1.4.
I find this very weird because i couldn't find any info on this problem.
If anybody has an answer towards this problem, please don't hessitate to post
Might be a long shot, but do you have your video card installed properly? I mean with the drivers from Nvidia or ATI (i don't mean the ones that come with XFree)? It sounds like as soon as you go into "OpenGL" mode - it crashes. Leading me to believe there might be something wrong with the drivers for your video card. I know it's barely 2 cents, but it's all i got.
I've set the permissions and also tried using ravage's installer, but non has worked for me.
The same problem still exists.
I also updated my nvidia drivers this afternoon, but this too had no effect.
Anyway, this night I'll try doing the install with the nwn resources provided by Bioware (maybe i'm missing something from my windows install, though i don't see it)
I'll keep u updated.
Distribution: K/Ubuntu 12.04/14.04, Scientific Linux 6.3/6.4, Android-x86, Pretty much all distros at one point...
Try installing to your user's /home sub-directory instead of installing as root. That should help. If not, then it's some other problem, usually with your XFree86 implementation (using AGPgart instead of nVidia's built in support might help, etc.).
