Neverwinter Nights Game Requirements for Avlis
- The NWN Expansion Packs are required.
- NWN 1.69 Patch is required. If you have not already, make certain you download and install the version 1.69 critical rebuild patch.
Obtaining the Neverwinter Nights Game
If you do not have the NWN game, you may be able to purchase the NWN Diamond Edition (includes the SoU and HotU expansion packs) from a site such as GOG.
- IMPORTANT: When purchasing NWN from a website, it may come with a set of default "CD" keys. Our authentication system requires that all players connecting to it must have a unique set of "CD" keys. We have blocked the default keys to prevent issues.
- For example, GOG will supply their customers with a unique set of keys suitable for multiplayer use. Please visit the GOG support page to request new CD keys.
- NWN and Avlis will run on most modern computers. NWN's system requirements are listed here, and Avlis does not have any additional System Requirements beyond that of NWN.
- If NWN is not running well on Windows verion 8 or 10, it may be useful/necessary to run NWN with some compatibility settings enabled, such as "Run this program as administrator" and "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". Right click on nwnmain.exe and select the Compatibility tab to view these settings.
Recommended Graphic and Sound Settings
- You can play around with the graphics and sound settings so that NWN is stable on your system, yet enhances your video and audio experience when playing on Avlis.
- Some have found better game stability if the "Shiny Water" graphic setting is set to disabled.
