Guides on emulating older games

A plague known as the Wailing Death is terrorizing the city of Neverwinter. Lady Aribeth summons an adventurer, who teams up with her fiance Fenthick Moss and his friend Desther to capture four monsters which are needed to prepare the cure. However, the matters become more complicated when the protagonist is attacked by mysterious assassins. It seems that an evil cult is behind the infestation, and the hero must find out what its ultimate goals are, and eventually save the city.

Neverwinter Nights is a role-playing game based on the third edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. The game utilizes 3D graphics with a zooming function and free camera rotation. Combat is handled in real time, and is similar to that of the Baldur's Gate series (BG, BG II), allowing the player to pause in-battle to issue orders. Unlike other RPGs that utilized this system, Neverwinter Nights allows the player to fully control only one character. Various "henchmen" may join the hero during the journey, but their functionality as party members is limited, as they cannot level up, have no inventory, and only follow general commands.

The multiplayer modes include Dungeon Master, in which a "DM" controls the traps and battles set for other players in the dungeon, and a range of game types such as hunting for treasure or a simple death match battle between players. The game also comes with an extensive tool kit for the construction of custom adventures. It allows players to create their own maps using a tile system. It is possible to add objects to the areas and even produce scripted events, cutscenes, and conversations. (MobyGames)

A note about the downloadable files available here:

  1. file, "NWN - Disk", is the game disc 1
  2. file, "NWN - Disk", is the game disc 2
    • The game CDs have both Mac and PC partitions but each partition contains the same (Mac) files.
    • These are Mac-only CDs.
  3. Expansion packs:

  4. file is the expansion pack "Shadows of Undrentide"
  5. file is the expansion pack "Hordes of the Underdark"
    • The expansion packs were released for Mac in 2004.


  6. file: ""
  7. file: "
  8. file: "

The patches update the game to v1.69.

If you have NWN alone, then you should use the plain NWN update.

If you have NWN + SoU, then you should only use the XP1 update.

If you have NWN + HotU, then you should only use the XP2 update.

If you have NWN + SoU + HotU, use both XP1 and XP2 patches (in that order). When applying the XP1 patch in this case, ignore installing the two files "xp1patch.key" (normally in the same folder as NWN) and "xp1patch.bif" (normally in the "data" folder in your main NWN folder). (Technically, you only need to update the files in the "nwm" folder from the XP1 patch.)

The installation instructions that come with the patches are incomplete. Additional information, including full instructions for applying the patches, can be found in this Mac NWN FAQ.

I have trouble installing SoU, the installer say he can’t find the directory of Nwn, and when i tell him where i installed the game he say that’s not the right file, what i’m doing wrong?
The game work well, but i want to install that expansion.

From the demo it looks like a very nice game, but the demo is too short to know how well the difficulty level and increase is handled. The demo I got from a MacFormat cover CD ran perfectly fine on a G4 iBook with Mac OS X 10.5.8.
