I have tghe original “DVD NWN2 versions/extensions”
I can run NWN2 full screen 3440*1440 the game cap and stay at 60FPS.
IT works with NWN2 “standard” and the NWN2 clients extension.
I doubt GOG altered the engine files. Since I played NWN2 the first time I changed my GPU 5 times the computer 3 times.
I had both brand for GPU and CPU NVDIA/AMD gpu and AMD/INTEL CPU
I am currently runing AMD CPU NVDIA GPU.
I have troubles upon the original configation of the graphics setting. I have to use the windowed mod to set the resolution, and only once it’s done can I switch to the 3440*1440 resolution full screen. But I had to do this operation only once at the first launch after a fresh instalation. This trouble only occur for this resolution.
I am using the last NVDIA drivers and the GFORCE experience soft ware works perfectly fine. All my software/driver/firmware are up to date.
NWN2 destroyed or broke the GPU I had when the game launched from overheating, it was a NVDIA 1650 and the card didn’t have a real cooling solution like all gaming cards have nowadays.
My current PC is “custom” computer that was fully new/installed early 2020 NWN2 was fully installed from scrach on an “empty” machine when I got the new PC, I am running on windows 10 but poeple with windows 11 don’t report any problem.
Either GOG tempered the engine file, or there is a problem with your hardware or you are missing a fundamental windows librairy that elude us beceause it’s a default one.
I also ran NWN2 on 2 laptop computer, a I3CPU+integrated intel graphic card. The game was runing without problem, poor FPS, need to cup shadows and so on, but absolutly no resolution problems.
and I7 laptop+ 1030 or 1040 NdVIA GPU (one of the first “real” laptop GPU" which is a little more than an integrated intel GPU)
NWN2 seems to resist the new configurations/hardware/software pretty well.
