    I don't know if this has been posted before but i'll post it anyway for the people who may have missed it. Using Vista x64 and running Neverwinter Nights 2 at max details produced unplayable framerates, however after some experimental tweaking of the nwn.ini i found that when i changed the line..

    ATIWorkAroundForPointLightShadows=1
    to
    ATIWorkAroundForPointLightShadows=0

    ..i was now able to run the game with max details and with 4xAA with next to no slowdowns. :D

    (Using 158.19 drivers)

    You'll get no argument from me, i'm a huge fan of the series and up till now i felt really cheated being unable to run the game with a half decent framerate, especially with a 8800gtx.

    It's running like a dream for me! Maxed (with only shadows a notch down) and with 2xAA/16xAF @ 1680*1050.

    Dude you're going to have to save often in that game. The thing is buggy as hell and full of game stopping bugs. I can't speak for current versions but the release version was horrible. I had to restart twice with 4+ hours into the game, then on my nth attempt I got stuck 10+ hours in with a game stopping bug in a "storyline encounter" where a script didn't trigger. I had to freaking use the editor to figure out which obscure scripts to trigger and then trigger them in sequence. (this took 6 hours over 2 days)

    My advice is to have a save for every half hour and always keep a backup 4 hours behind your main game.
