Greetings, so this is where you’ve all been hiding.
I put this question up on the Nexus ( am I allowed to use that word here ? ) and got no reply so here I am. Somehow this site new my email address ( which was changed last year ) and me even though I’ve never logged in here which is really weird but irrelevant.
What is relevant is that my copy of NWN2 doesn’t work properly and here’s what happened…
I installed a new hard drive ( E ) to put all my games on and swapped NWN2 over from the C drive that it has lived on for years. This was both files, the Documents one and the Program files too and I changed the target on the desk top link to match this.
The game launched fine but all my saves had gone ! So I made a new NWN2 documents file in C and a saves one like the original, put in some saves from E and launched the game again. The saves were back again but if I made a new save it put it on the C drive, not the new one. I can live with that but it’s still not perfect.
So I loaded up a random save from one of my mods and it loaded but looked very different with people running around in their underwear and having had face change surgery due to a hak not working.
Back to the C drive and I made a hak file which I swapped the haks from E into and thought I’d solved the problem. But now it wont load at all and says that haks are missing ! I copied the haks and put them in the E hak file so I now had two copies and they’re still missing !
I wiped my new NWN2 files in C and put back the original ones from E but it still wont work and it still wont load saves.
So any ideas how I can fix this and is there a way to get NWN2 to only use the E drive ?
I don’t want to reinstall it in E because of the updates and it might not make a difference anyway. I do have a copy of NWN2 on an external hard drive ( to save doing updates if something happened ) which I could just put straight into E but it was originally installed on C so will be exactly the same files.
All suggestions welcomed, thank you.
