Neverwinter Nights + Shadows of Undrentide + Hordes of the Underdark + Kingmaker
Part 1: Neverwinter Nights (Originally written by NTZ)
1) Create a Temp folder on your hardrive.
Name this folder NWN_DVD. This will be the name (Label) of our DVD.
2) Copy all files from the Neverwinter Nights CD1 to the NWN_DVD folder.
3) From the Neverwinter Nights CD2 copy the disk2.bzf file to the same Temp folder.
4) Copy all the folders from the Neverwinter Nights CD3 to the same NWN_DVD folder.
5) The setup.inx and the Setup.ini files need to be edited.
NOTE: If you don”t have a Hex Editor, or don”t feel comfortable making these changes, I have included both the edited setup.inx and the Setup.inf files with the Custom Install Menu.
Be careful not to overwrite these edited files!
But I will still explain how to edit these files.
Using UltraEdit, or any other hex-editor, open the setup.inx file and change the following lines:
00009380h: 00 32 … (Old line)
00009380h: 00 31 … (change 2 to 1)
00009980h: 03 … 00 33 04 00 02 00 (Old line)
00009980h: 03 … 00 31 04 00 02 00 (change 3 to 1)
The demo version of UltraEdit is available from: www.ultraedit.com
6) Using the Notepad, open the Setup.ini file and add the following lines at the bottom of the text.
Part 2: The Expansions (Originally written by Sulio – Edited by Mok for the Custom Install Menu)
7) Download my NwN+Expansions Custom Install Menu from here and extract the contents of the RAR file to the NWN_DVD folder overwriting any files if prompted.
(Custom Installer created by Mok.)
Extracted from the Custom Install Menu rar file are the following folders:
Shadows of Undrentide
Hordes of the Underdark
8) Copy the contents of the Shadows of Undrentide CD to the Shadows of Undrentide folder.
9) Copy the contents of the Hordes of the Underdark CD to the Hordes of the Underdark folder.
10) Copy the contents of the Kingmaker CD to the Kingmaker folder.
11) Copy the patches too:
!DoX\!Hordes Of The Underdark\Patch\v.1.67\NWNEnglish1.67HotUUpdate.exe
!DoX\!Hordes Of The Underdark\Patchv.1.68\NWNEnglish1.68HotUUpdate.exe
NOTE: The 1.67 is the only Update necessary and this update will also remove the CD Check so it will work as a NoCD. As long as the 1.67 update is installed, you don”t need a NoCD crack for any of the games, as they are all started from the same exe and only once in the in-game main menu do you get to choose which expansion, or the original, you want to play.
12) Also extracted from the Custom Install Menu rar file is a file called: Info.txt
Copy your CD-keys, for the NWN games, to the Info.txt file and Save it.
13) If you don”t want to see the Electronic Registration reminders, during the install, then delete the Ereg folders in each game”s install folder (i.e. in NWN_DVD for NWN, Shadows of Undrentide for SoU and so on).
If the installer does not find the Ereg folder, it will continue installing without asking you to register.
If you still want the option to register at some point, then only rename the Ereg folder instead of deleting it, and manually start the registration when you want to.
14) Burn the contents of the NWN_DVD folder to a DVD, using the label: NWN_DVD
