I've been running Win 10 almost a year with no issues but I'm blaming some updates the machine decided to apply last Tuesday for fresh issues. I noted Friday night I couldn't test stuff in-game with the usual quickie toolset shortcut cause the game crashed on every attempt.

Ug.

I spent most of my free time Friday night through tonight poking the BW Tech Support forum for ideas, and even uninstalled/reinstalled NWN from scratch tonight.

I've managed to log onto DN twice since reinstall, but it's still not reliable. Nothing worked before the reinstall. I've only been able to get in game if I sit through the entire opening man vs minotaur cinematic thingy. That's time consuming and flakey.

Anyway, until I can make some progress in getting the game more stable, it's a lot harder to test modding stuff and I may be late for Monday night runs, so head's up. ohmy.gif

hrm. the cinematic means running nwn.exe - i take it you've tried going direct via nwmain.exe with compatibilty mode set to xp etc?

Aye; I've had shortcuts to nwmain with direct connects set up for DN and DN (DM) for ages, and sometime between our last Monday night session and Friday night, things when in a handbasket.

And a driver update published today by AMD/ATI seems to have fixed this issue. Playing in windowed mode seems busted, so I can't have the game up on one screen with the toolset open on the other screen for reference, but this is still an improvement over the last couple weeks.

Whole mess was caused by Win 10 applying her own update (from last November? I was holding off) and/or grabbing drivers at the same time. Ah well - onwards and upwards.

We fly tomorrow - be well and I'll check in after R&R.
