The big secret in setting up the GOG NWN EE to run the community stuff is that gog version has two folders;;the main folder and a folder in documents which seems to be set up deliberlty to handle community mods. Past the haks and other files from you Diamong edition in the NWN directory in documents, not the main program. I am sure you can find detailed instructions, if needed how to do that somewhere on this website.But so far, the CEp files seem to like the EE just fine.
I am still looking for definitive information so I can provide support for GOG’s EE (see first post). At present, the Installer Tool does not allow GOG’s EE folders to be specified, so any help will be very much appreciated.
The official answer from Beamdog is that the default install folder for GOG is different - Program Files/GOG Galaxy/Games. However, the default folder for user files is exactly the same as the Beamdog direct purchase version, namely, Neverwinter Nights in Documents.
Just listened to that section of the livestream and there was no mention of the GOG registry entries. Would be really useful to see the GOG EE directory structure (seems like slightly different root folder names are used) and a copy of someone’s exported GOG.COM registry entry.
Is anyone running GOG EE? If so, please respond here or PM me so I can get the information I need to provide support via NIT.
I did that and I didn’t experience any issues with it. The folders are named differently, and the GOG EE uses the Documents folder for overrides, .ini files, hakpaks and stuff, while the Diamond Edition just keeps all that in the game’s directory, so the separate installations don’t interfere with each other.
I am. I’m not that tech savvy, but if you give me detailed instructions for what you need and how to get the info across to you, I can try to help.
Btw, I tried NIT, but felt a bit overwhelmed with the questions asked on running it the first time, and then I wasn’t sure whether NIT can recognize that I have both Diamond and EE installed and whether that could cause problems, so I haven’t really used it since then.
Navigate to your Documents folder, type in a file name (eg GOGreg) and click Save.
Close the Registry Editor.
You can now Right-Click the file you saved and Open with… Notepad. You can then copy and paste the all the text into a post or PM for me.
Let me know if you need any help with the above.
Thanks for this feedback. I would very much like to hear what you found overwhelming (ie specific messages) so I can see if I can make it less of a problem for new users. Feel free to PM me with details.
You can use the Help’s “Run the Installer Tool for the first time” section to see what messages are displayed. You can open the Help using the Windows Start Menu…
NIT supports multiple NWN installations by using separate “Profiles” for each installation. This allows you to switch NWN Editions by changing the Profile you want to use. The Help has information about working with Profiles.
