I’m still working on my first NWN2 module and the going is slow, mostly because work and life keep intruding… But, it’s coming along. A huge thanks to all of you who helped me figure out the encounters, especially rjshae, kevL_s, andysks, Taihou, and Aqvilius.
My latest areas of struggle are importing .erf files into the toolset and scripting some area transitions. I’ll save the scripting question for a separate post. WRT the .erf files, I intend on using the snakes developed by Arpharazon and the giant frog by Kalister68.
Here’s what I’ve done so far, downloaded the .erf and .hak files for both, placed the .hak in the hak folder, figured out (or so I thought) how to use the import feature of the toolset to bring in the .erf files. However, when I try to place the creatures, nothing shows up. The creatures are listed in the Creatures list in the toolset, but all I see is a blank cross-hair cursor.
I read somewhere that I need to associate the models with the module, not sure if this is the problem or even how to do this. Any suggestions and instructions would be greatly appreciated. And please remember, I’m a total noobie, so please make it idiot-proof!
