What a cool game :-) Unfortunately, the install program doesn’t seem to be very reliable… I don’t think it’s setting the file date stamps correctly, which caused me problems when I tried to upgrade to version 1.31 using the patch MacSoft just released.
If only MacSoft had followed Apple’s guidelines and made it a drag-n-drop installation. Still, never mind. If you’re having the same problem with the 1.31 patch that I was, then go to the terminal and enter
cd /Applications/Neverwinter\ Nights
touch -d "May 8 2003" dialog.tlk
touch -d "Feb 7 2003" patch.key
touch -d "Feb 7 2003" data/patch.bif
then run the update installer. In my case, it thought it had finished after updating just
patch.bif; if this happens to you, just run it again (or click “Continue”). If all goes well, it should have updated the files listed here. The dates on the
patch.key files were still wrong when I’d finished, but it seems to have updated them.
Just in case you want to check, here are the MD5 sums of the files I have after installing the patch:
0784fde7c6413a441436c435c8e6b394 Dedicated Server.app/Contents/MacOS/Dedicated Server
6f57f2764b8833f30c5a0992b4a5f559 Neverwinter Nights.app/Contents/MacOS/Neverwinter Nights
You can generate a similar list by entering
md5 -r dialog.tlk patch.key data/patch.bif nwm/Chapter[1-4]* nwm/Prelude.nwm Dedicated\ Server.app/Contents/MacOS/Dedicated\ Server Neverwinter\ Nights.app/Contents/MacOS/Neverwinter\ Nights
at a Terminal prompt.
