Running NWN in Windowed Mode

Postby Kilaana » Sun Nov 15, 2015 11:54 pm

For all of us multi-taskers who don't already know this trick, you can run the game in a windowed mode, resolving having to tab out constantly to switch to another program.

1. Locate the file nwn.ini in your main NWN directory.
2. Open the file with Notepad or similar text program.
3. Set the following to:

[Display Options]

The desktop resolution should be greater than the game's resolution (for example, desktop at 1024x768 and NWN at 800x600). Otherwise, Neverwinter Nights will ignore its resolution setting and run at 800x600 instead. Furthermore, when running under Windows 7 or Vista, it might be necessary to run the program in compatibility mode for Windows XP.

Under Windows, it is possible to switch between full screen and windowed mode while the game is running (if windowed mode is allowed), by using the <Alt-Enter> key combination.
