Its not really a port. The game was developed with both the Xbox and PC in mind, and we spent the last many months adding in all the PC specific options, cranking up a number of the textures and all the other goodness for the PC version.

It really doesn't look much like the Xbox version, control-wise. Heh, I need to go get some sleep...

Heya. Is anyone having a problem with the Cat 3.9 + Radeon 9800 All In Wonder + OpenGL games? My buddy has a plain 9800 and is having no problems, but I am having my OpenGL games crash. My Direct3D ones are fine. Anyone else having this? I am sure its something I have done wrong...

Not that it matters too much if you believe me, but you can check my profile and contact me if you want to know more. For some magical reason, my name changed to an old nickname and my signature was deleted. Ahhhhh, computers.

If you want to chat further, you are all welcome by to the KotOR PC forum here

Many of the textures have been redone so the look great on the PC.

Actually, Beta patches are available for Windows and Linux, in both Client and dedicated Server versions, for people with and without the Shadows of Undrentide expansion installed. - http://nwn.bioware.com/support/patch_beta.html

Also, the new version is 1.31 Beta 2, not 1.1 beta 2. 1.10 was the version that NWN shipped with over a year ago.

Let me correct some errors in #29's post.

When we asked Sony if they made any changes to SecureROM when we built the ~1.21 Update, they said no. We said, look at all these problems. They said no, no changes. We asked for 3 weeks if anything had changed, and they said no. Finally, we were informed in the fourth week that in fact there had been a change to SecureROM. We were simply restating what Sony had told us.

Armed with this new evidence, we found resolution to this issue and in the next possible patch, our game owners were able to play.

To clarify, we always expected to have the server browsing and chat in the "next" release of the Beta. What we didn't expect, was to release Beta 1, Beta 2, and Beta 3 all within 5 business days. Originally, we didn't expect Beta 2 to be released until the first week of April. As such, the server browsing and chat just aren't ready yet.

"all of the NWN modules produced by Bioware"

Sorry, but so far, we have only put out the Official Campaign that came with the game. We have yet to release another module for Neverwinter Nights. That will be our upcoming release from the BioWare Live Team here:

http://nwn.bioware.com/downloads/module_witchwork.html

This will be a completely free for download module.

Now we have released other little demo and example modules on the site to show off the potential of Neverwinter Nights, but we haven't actually released a new story-based module.
