Just thought I'd get this out here in the forums, as I have met lots of people who still don't know about these things.

Unlocking Special Violence Level:
As default, you have a choice to set Violence Level in Game Options, to either Low or Full. By altering a config file, you'll be able to set it to Special aswell ("Violence Level: Special" sure sounds cool icon_biggrin.gif ).

Anyway, here's how to unlock it:
First you must locate the file NWNPLAYER.ini file in your NWN directory. What you should do then, is to open it and find two lines under the [Game Options] section that reads MEMORY LEVEL=1 and MEMORY ACCESS=1. Simply change those lines so they read the number 2 instead of 1. Result is:

[Game Options]
...
...
Memory Level=2
Memory Access=2
...

Now you have unlocked Special gore mode. You can now go to Game Options and chose between Low, Full or Special. What this "Special" will do is to make the enemies bleed more when hit, and also if you kill them so they drop below -10 HP (overkill) they will explode in a meaty mass of blood. icon_biggrin.gif

I love gore, so I enjoy this alot. But it's up to you really, if you don't like gore, then don't play on Special. But for those who likes gore, you'll NEED this! icon_smile.gif




Unlock Camera:
I know most of you already knows this, but for you who don't, here's how to unlock the camera:

In the same file as above (NWNPLAYER.ini), you might want to scroll down until you find a section going by the name [Control Options]. All you've got to do, is to add the line UnlockCamera=1. You now have full access to twist and turn your camera all the way to the ground, or a straight top view, and full zoom range.




Camera Hack: UPDATED!
There is also a Camera Hack file out. Find this here: Camera Hack
This will let you tinker with the camera a bit more. Like FPS view I think and Look up aswell as editing viewing distance (fog). But this file needs a new update with each new version of NWN, and you also need to un-do any changes made with it before installing a new patch. And I myself am perfectly happy enough with just the Unlock Camera.




Chat Logging:
To be able to keep a log of everything that's said in the in-game chat, you have to locate the line ClientChatLogging=0 under Game Options in the NWNPLAYER.ini file. Change the 0 to 1. Result: ClientChatLogging=1
Now a log will be kept of everything in the chat, in the folder Logs in the NWN directory.



Alright, thanks for me. If anyone else has some tips for config-customizations or other juicy stuff, feel free to add.



PS: You need to restart the game (if you are running it) before any changes will take effect.

just saying that it feels tacked on, and despite the fact that I do enjoy more gore, this implementation looks stupid, so I keep it off..
you were plugging the blood like it was something awesome..

Camera unlock is nice though.

It's up to each and everyone to decide whether they want to play with this half-done gore mode or not. I am simply delivering the method to make it available.

Oh, sorry. For those who still don't know, the new Camera Hack (link above) has the ability to change the Viewing Distance (aka fog). So, setting that to max (actually around 130-150 is enough) you will not see any fog at all. There is a warning text when you do that though, that it might be considered "cheating" on some modules. As you can see pretty far, without have been there (ie the minimap gets updated). But it's nothing you really can take advantage of.

Also, this is what I do to keep myself from tinkering with the actual camera so much. I just use the Unlock Camera editing, and then go in the hack and change the viewing distance, and then I modify the file, and touch nothing else. You will still have full control over the camera (as the unlock camera fixes that) and the fog will be gone.

PS: As with all other "tinkerings", you will need to restart game before any changes will take effect.

Updates for the new patch

With the new patch, neither Camera Hack or Unlock Camera seems to be working properly. The Camera Hack is out of date, and I am sure the author will release a new version when he can. The Unlock Camera was a BioWare thing they added with 1.28, so I don't know why that doesn't work. You can still unlock the camera, but you have to do it in game. Access the console and type unlockcamera 1 . Downside is that you have to do this everytime you enter the game, it does not save. If you have trouble accessing the console, you can always do it in the chat line (where you talk). All you have to do is to start the command with ## . (##unlockcamera 1).

The special violence level still works though, and I will post updates about the Camera Hack and about Unlock Camera if something comes up. Or if anyone reading this has some information, please feel free to share it with us.

I was able to get unlock camera to work by modifying the nwnplayer file with UnlockCamera=1 (no space).

Thanks Kindo for posting this. I've enjoyed the unlocked camera feature.

Oh, no space, eh? Is that a change they did now, or have I said it wrong from the beginning? OK I will edit the first post then. (God, where is my mind?)

Alright then it works then. Only a new version of Camera Hack needed now.

No problem, Muric. I enjoy these small tinkerings. Tinkerings and portraits icon_smile.gif And thanks to *you* for correcting my little mistake. icon_biggrin.gif

Alright, I know it might be a bit late but I edited the first post, adding the link to the new Camera Hack that supports NWN v1.29. I think they had to remove the FPS option though, but viewing distance is still there.

The exploding mosnters don't apply now that the corpses themselves become containers. The extra blood remains though. But no overkill deaths.  Reply with quote

want a funny thing to unlock camera without having to do all that junk?

make a macro with this as its command: "##unlockcamera 1" and it will display a small message in the chat screen and then you have a better freedom of movement with the camera, saves the trouble of all that editing files stuff and is much safer, PLUS you dont have to edit anything... just make a macro that takes up a single little space on your keys....

I am certain that method is listed somewhere here. That you can do it with chat-box instead. Macro is just a shortcut for a chat-box message, so yes, it would work. But then again, if you just edit that line once...it'll stay on forever.
