Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition Patch 8164

Busy times at Beamdog! With the March 27 Steam release less than two weeks away, the team is locking down features and fixes. Build 8164 is now available on Steam and the Beamdog Client.

A new upgrade code is now available on for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition base game owners who want the Digital Deluxe package. If you own Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition just add the Digital Deluxe bundle and the coupon code NWNDDUPGRADE to get a $19.99 discount on your order.

Known Issues
  • We are still looking into the Intel Integrated GPU-related performance regressions, especially on Mac.
  • We are also looking into the Intel Integrated GPU-related crashes on Windows.
  • Crossbows & slings have a split/twisted appearance and animation. A fix is planned for 8165. 
  • A crash has been fixed with the toolset that would trigger when re-opening a conversation from search results.
  • The toolset should now run on Wine again.
  • Toolset script compiler no longer crashes when attempting to include a missing script.
  • The toolset now defaults to the NWN user directory when im/exporting erfs.
  • The camera bounds as configurable in the .ini now default to 1.69 values (unlocked).
  • Toolset crash when deleting an area with a uppercase resref was fixed.
  • The multiplayer server list doesn’t select a random server on open anymore.
  • The multiplayer server view now displays the server game type properly.
  • Combining parts no longer causes some geometry to sometimes disappear.
  • Normal mapped static lighting no longer causes lighting to be black for some static geometry.
  • Skin animations for parts that are attached now synch up exactly to the attached object and will no longer animate a few frames behind in certain situations.
  • Skybox position is now centered on the character, so skybox warping will no longer be apparent when you’re at the edge of large maps.
  • Game and server binaries now error out if no data files can be found, instead of crashing.
  • The console open/close key can now be typed in the game chat bar.
  • Some further memleaks in the Toolset were fixed.
  • The toolset script editor now accepts cyrillic/non-ascii input.
  • The toolset script compiler identifier limit has been bumped to 16K (from 8K; error manifested was “IDENTIFIER LIST FULL” for some very complex scripts).
  • The toolset keeps variables on triggers and encounters when repainting their polygon.
  • The toolset is now much faster when opening object properties.
  • Steam workshop now supports tags. Simply create a tags.txt file in your project root, containing the tags you want to assign to your upload, one per line.
Toolset area editor improvements:
  • Selected objects now don't move on single click
  • The object properties dialog opens on double click
  • Support for undo/redo operations on object move actions added
New functions: GetEventScript, SetEventScript to set NWScript event handlers on any supported object (including PCs).


  1. good luck with the cross platform related fixes! hope everyone at beamdog is doing great!

    1. Indeed! It sounds like NWN is finally getting the polish it needs! It should definitely be in a much more playable state by that 27 March release-date on Steam! However, I'm eagerly awaiting an official release on the Beamdog client; I always buy directly from the devs 1.) to support them, 2.) because Beamdog is DRM-free, and 3.) generally earlier access to patches and official releases (NWNEE apparently being an exception).
