Title: The Enhanced Edition
Post by: Manfred60 on March 29, 2018, 06:39:56 PM
I can't get the PRC's module updater to recognize the newly released NWN EE, is there some trick? Has anyone managed to get the PRC to work with an EE installation?

Well, i don't think there's a way for the installer to recognize nwn:ee since it has different file structire, registry keys and all that.
One thing you could try to do is manually copy all the required PRC files to your EE installation and use your regular nwn to update EE modules for prc. But then, i don't even know if there even was a change to the official campaigns in EE, you could be able to just copy them over to EE.
Please respon if you have any luck with that.

I haven't tested it but shouldn't the manual installation through the toolset (as described in the manual unter installation) work fine?

If you successfully install it, when you load a modded module put your game in windowed mode before you load it and just let it sit for a moment. It will work. I just posted on steam tat I am the first person to sucessfully do this

Followed your advice, it appears to be working now. Although it takes much more time to load than it was in the diamond edition. Wonder what causes it.

With the announced possible changes, maybe the PRC will get new life.

Got the source to compile into the appropriate .haks with the Enhanced Edition. Source is at: https://bitbucket.org/SpitefulBerk/nwn_ee_prc

It would be fantastic if the PRC could be updated to make use of new features in the EE such as finally being able to use Bioware spellbooks.

Unfortunately I don't think this is a feature in EE yet. A lot of the customization (classes, spells etc) is still work in progress, assuming the progress has already started.

So, I've been hacking on this for a while and I'm at a point where I need some testing doing. It would be nice to get some people familiar with the PRC testing it so have some links:

GUI Hak Patcher - http://www.mediafire.com/file/tsz4l1ty4acbzlt/hakpatcher%20EE.7z
EE PRC haks - http://www.mediafire.com/file/hatqataj684laac/PRC%20EE.7z

.net 3.5 is required to run the hak patcher - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21

Note, I've discovered that you can run the PRC in the EE. It only crashes when leaving the character creation window after hitting the class packages bit. You can still create a character here, but your game will crash straight after. You can then reopen the game, load a module/campaign and select the already created character.

Depending on where you installed NWN, you may have to run the patcher as admin. Also, since the character creator hasn't been updated yet, you can't select any new races.

I'll do some testing with Endless Nights.
