Avlis Quality Assurance Testers

I'm in a bit of a unique position, since I've been away for almost a year, and there are some major differences here from what I was used to. I was always impressed with the QA people here, but since I've returned, I've been amazed at how much work they put into testing on a daily basis. In a way, t...

Re: The Omni-Present Currently Playing Thread

You know you are old when you see Miami Vice clips in a video, and think "that was a good show" (the 80's hair alone would make me switch it off, if I ever tried re-watching it :P ).

Re: HAMLET

Gonna chime in with more Hamlet raving, to mention yet another thing she's great at, and that is motivating the rest of us to get things done. All the other stuff she does is also amazing, but that is what keeps the rest of us chugging along (and in my case, coming back for more :mrgreen: ). :respec...

Re: NWN Enhanced Edition Notes and Discussion

There have been a few web articles about EE so far, but a new one just came out that is a pretty good read: How devs and fans are coming together to rebuild Neverwinter Nights While they don't really say anything new (watch the weekly streams for that), it does rehash a bunch of different things the...

A reminder bump, if you missed this notice the first time. :) All 9 Avlis Extension Haks from the avlis_ext_hakset on the "Needed Files" wiki page will be required on/after the 23rd of this month (a few days from now). There's nothing new in them for players, but they make life a lot easier on the s...

It already has per part coloring, and some other fun stuff on the way, like model scaling. Adding bunny ears to things might be easy one day. ...

Re: NWN Enhanced Edition Notes and Discussion

If you haven't been keeping up with the weekly EE streams and updates , there's a lot changing every week (and breaking :P ). The Beamdog forums are horrible for navigating and tracking things (and even searching sucks), so it is hard to follow the multiple posts and topics for all the requests and ...

Everyone will already have at least the avlis_ext_1.hak - avlis_ext_4.hak, since you couldn't log in without them. The other 5-9 haks were in the original set, but are only being fully implemented now (on or after Dec 23rd). The Avlis Extension Haks on the Needed Files wiki page all contain the full...

Re: NWN Enhanced Edition Notes and Discussion

Wasn't the last post you made here (that you deleted) saying people are too fixated on that $20, after still miss-reading PJ's: There are valid concerns beyond not willing to part with $20. How about letting things sort themselves out for a little while, and at least see what is doable, before stirr...

Re: NWN Enhanced Edition Notes and Discussion

I also asked what happens during a MS outage. In Classic NWN there's a server flag to ignore it. Would not surprise me in the least if they left that one out. Either way, if they won't commit to letting PW's manage their own authentication then I very strong advise against using NWN:EE for PW purpo...

Re: Beamdog Announces NWN Enhanced Edition

Not sure if this was my mistake but I installed the Head Start version on my MacBook yesterday and when I tried to install it on my Windows laptop I had to purchase it again. Not a huge problem at $20 a go but the original NWN allowed me to install over and over again. Needless to say I would not b...

Re: NWN Enhanced Edition Notes and Discussion

I'd blame Windows more for that than the toolset. Possibly from the NTFS 8.3 filename creation on files for old school compatibility, when there are a bunch of files with similar names (the first 6 or more characters the same). 32-bit apps seems to be worse at this than 64-bit too. :( With the NWNTX...

Re: NWN Enhanced Edition Notes and Discussion

An FYI for those downloading the head start version with the Beamdog client. It is a peer sharing thing, so you upload to others as fast as you download, and it is pretty slow ATM. Block UDP port 6889 out (local and remote) while allowing in for it, and you get faster downloads without the outbound ...

As I mentioned in the other topic, be aware that this will not work on Avlis. :wink:

The server and all clients need to be running the new version (meaning all current versions would stop working). :(

After some chat in IRC, I'll add this. To be clear, do not rush out and pre-order this, expecting to log in here with it and play. It doesn't work with regular servers (like Avlis). :wink: Whether we upgrade or not is an all or nothing thing, since everyone will need the new game to play if we do. T...

Re: Beamdog Announces NWN Enhanced Edition

I think the PR department is gonna be getting busy soon. :P

Sounds great, though I can only imagine what it'll do to all the stuff folks use as overrides. In any case, I won't mind redoing anything, if it has better stuff under the hood. :mrgreen:
