Games course involving nwn2 scripting


We are creating a site to help beginners with NWN2 scripting. The site is I am not sure where to post this information or if it would even be proper to have such a link here. Thanks for doing a great job with the wiki site. I am teaching a course at Southern New Hampshire University on computer games and we are using the NWN2 editor for creating our virtual environments. Would be happy to share course material if you wish.

Odd edits (spam?)

I'm not sure what's going on with all the minor edits to remove the + character from articles. I'm guessing it's some misprogrammed spambot. Our spam filters don't allow the links to be added, and that's what the bot ends up doing. That's my guess at least. -- Alec Usticke 09:07, 12 April 2007 (PDT)

Likely, google the IP's and they come up in some peoples "I've blocked this IP for spamming" pages. I also notice your spam blocker causes some PHP error at the top of the page when I don't input a summary - since I have "remind me about summaries" - might want to check if that's an issue - Jasperre 10:58, 12 April 2007 (PDT)
Also; it occurs to me; why can't you add extra rules to this spam filter you have to stop the removal of "+"'s ? If we're going to have anonymous edits, this might just get very annoy cat-and-mouse - Jasperre 07:56, 13 April 2007 (PDT)

We seem to be getting more of these random "silly edits" where its the +'s that get deleted or a random section of text is deleted, could possibly be spam or maclious users. So far i'm banning for 6 months though I have a supision its the ones we banned for 3 months a while ago and the ban has just run out...anyway of checking? -- DM Yarrow 16:19, 14 June 2007 (PDT)

Looking at the block log (special pages-->logs-->block log) it doesn't appear to be the same IPs Chezcaliente 18:25, 14 June 2007 (PDT)
Some of the last few edits were done by users,, and in succession. Oddly, their IP sumbers are all listed with the last digit decreasing by 1 each time. The erasing the "+" signs thing is also happening on the NWN1Wiki, recently. -- Wraith Sarevok 01:08, 15 June 2007 (PDT)

updating, refreshing, sorting, etc

I've just done a little clean up and updating. I'd like to change the screenshots to catergory like with nwnwiki and move the current screenshots article to "pre-release screenshots" or simliar. Plus i've a couple of changes i'd like to do to the main page (move the pre-release stuff off it for example). Any thoughts? yays or nays? -- DM Yarrow 19:29, 17 April 2007 (PDT)

Sure. Go for it! -- Alec Usticke 07:59, 18 April 2007 (PDT)
Sounds good. I have, at the present time, had no "inspiration" for redoing the main page - nothing that, in my mind, would benefit it much more. If you aim to change the frontpage at all, then I might go and template it so it can be more easily edited in sections, but if not I'll leave it until we need to change it a lot. - Jasperre 10:48, 18 April 2007 (PDT)
na, the most i've done is remove the pre-release box. :) -- DM Yarrow

Just finished, nothing really major but a quick sum-up - I've removed the pre-release info from the main page and as it's all accessable in the pre-release catergory via the nwn2 category I haven't added any of that to the main page with the exception of the screenshots link. The older screenshots (pre-release) have been moved and the screenshots category has been created like with the nwn1 wiki. I think I fixed all the broken links, here's hoping anyway, heh. -- DM Yarrow 16:04, 18 April 2007 (PDT)

Build Depository

There doesn't seem to be any good central place for NWN2 sepcific builds which account for the particular PrCs and quirks of NWN2. This wiki seams like a good place for such a database. The only real problem would be that everyone would say 'look my slight change to this existing build is the coolest!' But it would still be nice to have a few basic builds up for each character style (raw damage, distance damage, tank, etc.)

Good idea! -- Alec Usticke 20:36, 10 May 2007 (PDT)

Character Editing

I think we should start a page with information on editing saved games/moving characters between saves, etc. Does anyone know of any other web resources I could start learning from, so that I can add info here? Dalhamir 10:29, 11 May 2007 (PDT)

first stop for most are the offical forums and, so they'd be good places to start. -- DM Yarrow 13:28, 11 May 2007 (PDT)


Sorry for the downtime today. My web host had a technical problem. We're back up now (obviously). -- Alec Usticke 12:27, 29 June 2007 (PDT)

QuartzSmoke as default Skin?

Hi everyone. I noticed that the default skin is QuartzSmoke since we moved to wikia. Is this made on purpose? Iirc, MonoBook was the default skin before the move. Am I the only one who thinks that QuatzSmoke doesn't suit NWN2? Perhaps MonoBook doesn't either, but at least kind it's of neutral. ;-)-- TheHappyEater 23:39, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Good question. I have my skin set to MonoBook in my settings, so I didn't even really notice. Should we make MonoBook the default? (More Wikia move discussion here. -- Alec Usticke 00:09, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
