Changing NWN:EE language to german

Hello everyone,

i just bought the basic version of Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition and try to start it over Beamdog-Client. But it seems I can only play the game with english language. I changed Client-language to german and also tried to edit the nwn.ini-File by adding "Language=de". Nevertheless the game is starting in english language. How do I change to german?

    Hello, @Asmaran . Were you by chance given NWN:EE manually by our support?

    Purchasing NWN:EE should get you a provision for the multilang build. If you have been given NWN:EE by hand, then you would also need to be given the multilang.

    I downloaded NWN:EE via Beamdog-Client. After downloading the Client and logging in I were able to install it there. But seems I got an english-only version, because when I look at game-folder I only find "en" in the "lang"-directory.

    Contact our support and ask them if you have the multilang build, or not (you should).

    Ok, I will try. I already contacted support, but they forwarded me to Redmine-Ticket-System. I just did think I try and see if someone here can help me, since I did not want to register at an additional service (I already registered at Beamdog-Site for purchasing the game, Support-Site for posting an issue and here). I now asked in the support-chat if they can check if I have the multilang-build. If this does not lead to a solution then I think I will finally have to register at Redmine, too and post an issue there.

    Thank you for your help :)

    Ich habe dasselbe Problem und bin auch vom Support an das Ticket-System verwiesen worden. Daraufhin habe ich mich dort angemeldet und einen Bugreport erstellt Leider hat sich seitdem (2 Monate her) niemand um das Problem gekümmert.
    Ich habe das Spiel ebenfalls direkt bei beamdog gekauft und habe auch nur die englische Variante zur Auswahl. :-/

    I think most people here do not speak german so I will answer in english. Well I am still waiting for a fix, but today I saw your ticket being solved :) Other tickets targeting the same problem got also solved, so I hope they will fix the problem for my account soon. :#

    They still did not solve it (neither answered anymore). I am waiting for months now that the problem gets solved

    Hi there,

    I've switched a few things around on your account.

    Could you please try loading up the Beamdog Client, and see if "Multi-Language" is available as a download in the channel drop-down?

    If so, please download that version, and see if it launches in German (NOTE: You will need BDC set to German, or the overrides for language set in your .ini file)
