Solutions to fringe problems.

Post by Party in the forest at midnight » Sun Nov 20, 2022 6:45 pm

I'm going to use this thread as a place to put answers to strange problems people run into, and answers people find for them. So there's a record of it, and people can do a forum search and find an answer. Please add things to the thread if you have anything.

Problem: A writ says to scout an area. You go to that area, and you do not get completion for it.

Solution: Close the game entirely and open it again. Don't just log out, you need to entirely close the game. The problem is an issue with the server desyncing with you, meaning it doesn't think you are where you actually are.

Closing the game entirely and opening it again is a really good general first step for troubleshooting as well. I recommend people try it if something isn't working right. It fixes sprites not loading too. If you enter an area and portals or objects haven't loaded, close the game and open it again.


Someone on discord was reporting this issue. We were trying to direct them around the Lake Minmir region, until they showed a screenshot of their writ completion, and their minimap. They were standing in the zone that should give them credit and weren't getting it. I didn't know this could happen, so hopefully this will help people with troubleshooting.

A question I get asked through "-ama" a lot:

If you seem to be walking everywhere but aren't encumbered, aren't slowed, and aren't in stealth or detect modes, try toggling autowalk on and off (by typing in "-autowalk", then "-autowalk" again).

Scrolls not stacking?

You likely have scrolls with different "Useable By:" classes. This is due to the loot items being NWN default, and not having Arelith-specific classes such as Warlock or Hemomancer. Put them in a scroll case and remove them, as this creates a 'new' item each time it is put back in a container. Your scrolls should now be updated. This theory holds more or less true for many other items with similar adjustments - for example, "Crystal", a gemstone item that can be found in some places, becomes Obsidian after being put into and removed from a gem pouch, as it was updated but the original items still exist in a few places.

Move speed decreased even if you have freedom of movements?

Toggle on and off the stealth mode, then you'll walk as fast as normal (still can't run if you are heavy loaded)

Computer running hot and/or usage through the roof on a modern rig?

Set a FPS limit at max of 90-100.

I was today years old when I stopped burning a hole in my desk with my laptop on NWN.
