    Since this is a relatively important change on the part of BioWare, I'll repost and sticky it here:

    There will be a change made to which NWN1 patch files we serve through the Neverwinter Nights Updater. Ideally most people are running NWN1 at either 1.68 or 1.69, but we are seeing a large number of previous version traffic. With the compression difference between our Crit Rebuilds and the zip files of the Updater patches we would recommend that people trying to update much older versions of NWN1 to use the appropriate Crit Rebuild. It's a smaller download and does not rely on binary differential patching that could potentially fail.

    The primary focus will be to support the 1.68 and 1.69 Critical Rebuilds as well as the most recent Neverwinter Nights Updater patches for all currently supported languages.

    This post will be updated once we make the change. This change has not happened yet, nor will it happen this week. Depending on testing, it should be happen next week (first week of February).

    In summary, if you run into any NWN1 patch download issues through the Neverwinter Nights Updater, please download the appropriate Critical Rebuild:

    Please post any followup questions in this thread and I will do my best to answer them.

    That's probably the only place that still has all of the big patches available since NWVault's closure.
