HD Textures. How to use just some of them.

Post by Cabarcos » Sat Nov 27, 2021 1:32 pm

After installing the HD texture pack from the Beamdog website, I've found that I just like some of them, so I took a look to see how to remove the ones I dislike.

Use these instructions at your own risk!!!
It's easy if you are used to tinkering with the nwn installation, including new shiny things in the override folder for example, but for some people, it will not.

You must install the pack where the game is located on your computer, in my case:

D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Neverwinter Nights\

The new textures are in the "ovr" forder after the installation.

What I tried to remove were the textures that affect the character's models (body, armor), the rest, for now, look fine.
So, I've created a folder inside "ovr" named "!Not_Installed" and moved to it a lot of files:
appearance.2da
LegTest.plt
LegTest_N.dds
M_* -> all the filkes tha start with M_
p* -> all the filkes tha start with p*

This way if you wanna try some of them later you can move them back to the "ovr" folder.

Just a reminder that these should be in "development" folder, not override (helps with performance a TON) -

I haven't detected any problem for now.
The weapons, helmets, and cloaks look better, at least for me.
