Install data files

You have two options:

  1. Download data files for the original game using the port. You will need the original game cdkey.
  2. Or copy data from your Diamond Edition DVD (which includes the original game and expansion packs). You will need the three Diamond Edition cdkeys.

1. Internet download

# cd /usr/ports/games/nwndata
# make install clean

2. Diamond DVD

Add to /etc/make.conf:

.if ${.CURDIR:M*/games/nwndata}
    CDROM_MOUNT=/media/cdrom
.endif

Run:

# mdconfig -a -t vnode -f /path/to/NWN\ Diamond\ Edition.iso
md0
# mount_cd9660 /dev/md0 /media/cdrom

# cd /usr/ports/games/nwndata
# make install clean

# umount /dev/md0
# mdconfig -d -u 0

Install the game

# cd /usr/ports/games/linux-nwnclient
# fetch http://daemon-notes.com/downloads/assets/patches/nwnclient-binkplayer.patch
# patch -p1 -i nwnclient-binkplayer.patch
# make install clean

# cd /usr/local/share/nwndata
# fetch http://daemon-notes.com/downloads/assets/images/nwn.ico

Options for linux-nwnclient

  • Check NWMOVIES, with the patch above it will work.

Create /usr/local/share/applications/nwn.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Neverwinter Nights
Exec=nwn
Icon=/usr/local/share/nwndata/nwn.ico
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;Game;

Run the game, enter the serial key and enjoy one of the best RPGs.
