Since your graphic card is named "VIA Tech VT8361/VT8601 Graphics Controller" I assume it's an on board graphic controller (integrated into your mainboard). Those on board graphic cards usually share their memory with your computer's RAM.. which is never good and causes lots of problems with 3D-Game...

Yes, you can kill players of the opposing faction (not those of your own) on PVE servers (Blizzard calls them "normal servers" now ), but only under certain conditions. On PVP servers you can freely attack any player of the opposing faction who's not in their "green" starting territory. For more (an...

The release on 11/02 is Europe-wide, there will be English, German and French language versions (and servers with those languages), and versions with English language, but Italian and Spanish manuals. I don't think there'll be a Russian version, so I guess you'll need to find a shopt that sells the ...

Wands don't need ammunition, but instead of using the "attack" button you need to use "shoot", which should be located somewhere in your spell/ability-book. Just drag it to the quickbar and your new wand should work fine. I hope they mention this in the manual once the game is released, this confuse...

Weapon skills have a maximum of charlevel*5, so if you're level 1, the max in any weapon you can use is 5, if you are level 10 it's 50 and if you are at maximum level (60) it's 300. If you learn to use a new wepaon class you first have to train up with it, because they start at 0. This maximum is th...

Because charisma costs considerably less Exp to raise it, especially on higher levels.

Ever thought about a bat as familiar? Sure, it isn't undead, but quite fitting IMO ;)
And if you have the expansions the Pale Master is indeed a very good choice if you want to play a necromantic char.

You should consider that Valygar can no longer backstab with a two-handed weapon (unless it's a staff) because only 'thief-usable' weapons are suitable for backstabbing (->short/long swords, scimitars, katanas, daggers, staves, clubs). Also note that [SPOILER] Valygar and Viconia (and probably Valyg...

The manual says that mages with <18 INT can't scribe/cast 9th level spells, but that is not implemented in the game. All mages regardless of INT can scribe and cast all spells (though you never reach the level needed to cast 9th level spells under SoA's experience cap). INT only limits the maximum n...

I guess Xandax is not referring to a virus causing the problem but to Norton Antivirus itself. Some antivir programs that are running virus scans in the background interfere with games and cause them to crash, so you should try to disable them before ypu start NWN. Also you should check if your vide...

He drains strength, not charisma ;)
At least the claw (=dagger) improved Tor'Gal drops has a chance to drain strength on hit, so I assume he does the same while the thing is still attached to his body ;)

Once you accept Bodhi's offer (-> pay the 15.000 gold) all Shadow Thieves will become hostile towards you, so you should do the Mae'Var quest before accepting the offer. All other quest involving the Shadow Thieves I'm aware of start only if you paid the 15.000 gold to Gaelan Bayle, and it that case...
