Useful INI Settings

Post by terror2001 » Sat Jan 01, 2011 12:21 am

One thing many people wonder when they first set up NWN is how to capture chat to a file.

NWN will do this for you with a couple changes to your nwnplayer.ini file.

Under [Game Options] enter the following:
  • ClientChatLogging=1
This will log all conversation text, but not combat information.



To log all conversation text plus combat information:

Under [Game Options] enter the following:
  • ClientChatLogging=0
    ClientEntireChatWindowLogging=1

Did you ever want to change the color of text based on the channel?

Edit the file nwnplayer.ini. You may need to add the section [Chat Colors] if it does not currently exist.
Then under it enter one or multiple of the below based on what you want to change.
  • TalkColor=240,240,240
    ShoutColor=255,239,80
    WhisperColor=128,128,128
    TellColor=32,255,32
    ServerColor=176,176,176
    PartyColor=255,102,1
    DMColor=16,223,255
Complete colors are derived from RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values, from 0 (Black) to 255 (full color) for each. The values above are just examples. Change the values to set the colors to what you like.

If you have more than one player and computer sharing the same internet connection for NWN each computer should be set up with its own client port to avoid connection problems to servers.

Edit nwnplayer.ini and under [Profile] make sure each computer that runs NWN uses a different client port.
  • Client Port=5121
For the first computer use port 5121, the second use 5122, the third 5123, etc.

Did you know you can change the colors of traps on the ground?

Edit the file nwnplayer.ini. You may need to add the section [Trap Colors] if it does not currently exist.
Then under it enter one or both of the below based on what you want to change.
  • FriendlyColor=0,255,0
    HostileColor=255,0,0
Complete colors are derived from RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values, from 0 (Black) to 255 (full color) for each. The values above are just examples. Change the values to set the colors to what you like.

Ever want to run NWN in a Window instead of Full Screen?

Edit the file nwn.ini and under [Display Options] enter the following:
  • FullScreen=0
    AllowWindowedMode=1
Once in Windowed mode you can switch to full screen on the fly by pressing ALT-ENTER. You can switch back to Windowed mode the same way.
