I know it’s an old game, I know it’s not supported on Macs and I know this is a long shot but I thought I’d try.
I have an iMac ( late 2013) so it’s old. I have NWN:EE working perfectly but then its for the Mac. However, I also have the toolset working perfectly using WINE. I have also bought a number of other PC games which mostly work ( including Witcher 1 and 2). So WINE is a decent option.
In the current GOG sale for NWN2 I decided to take the plunge and buy NWN2, knowing its not intended for Macs but determined to try it using WINE.
Well, it worked (nearly!).
It downloaded properly, launched fine ( by clicking Launch on the final installer screen) and I played with it for about 5 minutes, changed a couple of settings with no issues. I then saved the game and closed it.
When I came back and looked to restart it I first tried the desktop icon created by the installer ( but which has the icon of Gimp - I wasn’t too worried about this as even in NWN:EE icons can be a little mucked up). I set it to open using WINE which is the normal way I get the NWN:EE toolset to open but no joy.
So, I decided to look through the files that were downloaded and came across what I think is the issue.
I don’t seem to have an nwn.exe, NWNmain.exe or other similar file which I can use to open it directly into WINE.
and loads of other files!
Being a Mac user I have no idea if any of these could be used to launch the game or if they could be slightly altered to do so…
It seems to work on the Mac as I’ve just reinstalled it and once I hit launch on the Installer it opens the game and I can play it as normal - or at least 5 minutes which is all I’ve tried.
I’m assuming a normal PC download would have something like an NWN2.exe or an NWN2main.exe or an NWN2launcher.exe file but I don’t seem to have any of these.
As I said I know it’s a long shot but any help would be appreciated.
