Neverwinter Nights (Manual) Update Patch Available NOW

by Rainier on June 21, 2002 @ 2:42 a.m. PDT

Last night BioWare let us know that there was an automatic update patch available for their just release 3D role-playing game "Never winter Nights". Today they released the manual patch for Neverwinter Nights, upgrading the game to version 1.18. Read more for details and links.

Get the 1.18 patch off Worthplaying (2.5MB)

Get the 1.18 patch off the NeverWinter Nights page (2.5MB)

The patch requires installing an up-to-date NWUpdate utility (505 KB) before running it on the 2.5 MB patch data, and besides the issues mentioned last night this release also addresses some chat room, Journal Entry, general sound, dedicated server, and other problems.

Please do not panic about the version number seemingly leaping from 1.10 to 1.18. The "missing" versions are builds of the many different international versions of Neverwinter Nights.

Here are the fixes in this patch:

  • Fixed the server filter crash
  • Improved client and server stability
  • Fixed the issue with plot items being dragged directly into an inventory bag
