I installed Neverwinter Nights and the latest update and the game runs. Only thing is, its laggy and slow as hell, even offline. The mouse cursor is struggling to move across the screen during a gam (not on the main menu). I have all the options set to their lowest values. Any help?

PIII 1.2 Ghz

nVidia GeForce2Go 32 MB Video Card
It ran perfectly under Windows before I transitioned to Linux. All my other games under Linux work fine except this one. America's Army, Warcraft III: TFT, Enemy Territory, Steam Counter-Strike--they all work fine.

Another problem that tends to make Neverwinter Nights run slowly is not having direct rendering on your video. Open a terminal and enter:
There is a massive amount of output. What you're looking for is near the top. If it says "direct rendering: No", you likely have a problem with your video card drivers. For example, the FC3 default drivers for nVIDIA video cards do not support Neverwinter Nights. You must download and properly install the nVIDIA driver and get "direct rendering: Yes" before the game runs jitter-free. Go to your video card manufacturer's web site for the appropriate driver.
