As some of you already know, Obsidian has released the “official” version of the 1.03 patch for Neverwinter 2. However, they don’t have a “critical rebuild” for manual downloading.

In fact, there isn’t any official information on manually patching the game. I’ve been sifting through the many messages on the NWN2 forum from others who need to patch outside of the auto-update.

This isn’t easy, as there are conflicting statements. The best I can make out right now is that, after buying the game, I would have to update first from 1.00 to 1.02, and then from 1.02 to 1.03. And I’d have to use a “third-party” patch utility to install the patches. Which has worked for some people and not others.

I am continuing to research this, and maybe I’ll find (or someone will come up with) at least a direct 1.00 to 1.03 patch. Right now, this manual patch business is something of a mess.

Of course, right after I get to 1.03, they’ll probably come out with 1.04….
