Just out of curiosity - what makes graphics in NWNEE so much heavier than NWN Dimond?
I'll explain. I have a laptop, modern one but without graphic card. (
) old games are running just fine on it up to NWN Diamond - laptop stays cool and fast. New isometric games (something more graphics heavy I do not even try to run) like DOS1-2 are out of question - computer heats up within few minutes to the temperature you can fry eggs at and the noise of the coolers become deafening.
Then I bought NWNEE and installed on that machine since it was supposed to be better suited for Win 10 (OS of my laptop) - one of the useful feature for non-modder solo player. However it behaved just as DOS did - instantly turning laptop into a fry pan. I do not complain (after all Diamond works just fine) just curious: there is no visual difference (high contrast
should not eat so much GPU, should it?), so - why?
