    I am about to give up. I fixed my old computer and tried to load my original NWN2 disc. Everything went fine until I tried to update. The updater tried to find a server and Atari did not answer so it quit! I tried a couple more times and then tried to load the NWN Complete version and it hung at "updating registration" right at the start.
    Does anyone know how in hell I can load this game? I would hate to lose the ability to play the Oc, SoZ and MotB. I am giving up after repeated tries unless I receive more information. DOWN WITH ATARI!!!!

    The patches are apparently available on the following link. I'm not sure if that will solve your problems, it sounds like you cannot start without it trying to patch? Have you tried running the game exe instead of any launcher?

    I Tried

    @BTA Thanks and I will try tonight to install. It seems Atari would keep at least a registration section alive to support the last release they are still selling.

    @Bluerose If I use my original disc I can run the game but not patch it. As it is a very early release its really buggy. I cannot even install the NWN Complete release it hangs right at the start trying to register itself, I think at the Atari site. It doesn't even get around to installing. As I said to BTA I'll try to install again later tonight and see if the sites you two provided let me figure it out. I think they will.

    I think I might be able to install NWN2 and then dump an old copy of the game into that directory. The only problem is I think the only copy of an installation I have is the NWN2 complete one not my older original copy. Oh Well. Thanks both of you.

    BTA The link to the patcher works but when you hit the download button the download webpage is gone.

    Bluerose The webpage is gone when I try the link.

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 15 minutes and 11 seconds later... ----------

    I somehow lost my last long post so here goes again. I used Google and tried many, many, and on and on sites and all patches are gone. I did find one patch program but nothing downloaded. Never saw that before. I did find out that the GoG version comes all patched so hummm... why the patches for all other versions are gone? People need to thank a soft hearted Red Dragon for all he has kept on this site for us all. I do plan to reload BG2 and all the additions I like as soon as I have another good day.
    Thanks everyone for the help through the years and sometime it is possible I will check out the GoG versions even though I HATE giving more money to Atari that I don't have anyway!

    Old One,

    Did you try the second link from BTA?

    It's certainly allowing me to download the random patch file I chose from it.

    YESS! now its there and I'm not being told it doesn't exist! Thank You!

    I bookmarked the site and will have to wait until evening to do my downloads in non prime time but this is great. I don't know why several times last night when I tried the site I got the dreaded white screen and 404 error.

    Getting accesss to the manual patches seems nigh on impossible, they used to be hosted on the nwnvault & ign, but are there no longer.
    the only way i've foulnd to get access to the files is through the wayback machine :

    https://web.archive.org/web/2011030....com/View.php?view=NWN2Articles.Detail&id=230
    https://web.archive.org/web/2014060....ign.com/View.php?view=NWN2Other.Detail&id=19

    though i am unsure if all the patches you need are downloadable in this fashion.
    Only other way i can think of getting nwn up to date, is to get the GOG version - in wichever fashion you'd like. either pay GOG €17.99 for it or.. well... you know.. :rolleyes:

    Glad it's working for you.

    And you can hardly expect Atari to have their IT systems right can you :p

    I'll host the offline patcher on SP, but all the patches themselves are about 2GB combined... I'd consider hosting them too, but as long as Atari's FTP remains online, I'll rather link to that.

    might not be a bad idea to at least download/backup them somewhere on your HD in case it does go down, or risk the files disappearing into the ether forever :(

    Success at last. I have a running copy of all of NWN2 on the second machine and I am sure I woke up all the town 20 miles away. Since my stroke every emotion is amped up and the highs are really high! Maybe turning into a vampire? Thanks so much guys. Like I said in another post, after reading Tals post, we are lucky he is trying hard to keep everything for us. Aren't red dragons supposed to be evil? ;-D
    I am writing down the sites posted here and it takes awhile to be sure but I am writing again and doing a lot for myself.
    Good on the writing as I have to still write most things down or I forget. No comments about being or getting senile please!
