I think the shield thing that still hovers over my head is just me. Frin doesn't get it when using the same powers. If you need a demonstration, let me know.

Also, I think I'm missing an item.... A good one, too, and one that was on loan. Who should I PM about that?

Many of the crafting materials and other items have changed appearance. Do you need a list of the ones that have changed, or is this just a matter of fixing the CEP ?

Whenever Lexy uses a Psionic power he gets a cracking sound effect and a visual effect of splinters of wood bursting out from him. This is in addition to the usual visual and sound effects of the powers. This doesn't happen to all Psions; Scel doesn't have it, nor does Egil, but I think it also happens to Shih.

I saw Rune doing that, too... I was wondering why. It's kinda cool, actually.... ;)

Why'd I get stuck with some lame shield appearing over my head?

The wood sound effect happens to both Shih and Xune (noticed it last Sunday with Xune's Birthday event). All the other regular effects happen, just the wood break sound effect and visual now occurs.

I believe there were some psion fixes in the last CoPaP hak update done yesterday aftrnoon. Are psions still getting the strange effects today?

Thanks

Is this something we need to re-download?

Okay, that officially didn't fix the shield thing. It's not harmful in terms of gameplay, but it's a bit odd... No hurries, but it would be great if it got fixed eventually.....

Just did a quick check with Lexy, and yes, he is still getting the strange effect. :?

Just FYI. Seamus is seeing no unusual effects re: the Psionic powers.

One strange thing that is happening to me though: I am seeing odd screen freezes since the update. Sometimes they appear random, but I noticed last night that whenever Aria first showed up in Seamus' field of awareness that the animations would freeze for a couple of seconds. THis happens on every board, the first time I "see" her. It also happens any time she swaps out a piece of visible equipment (cloak, helm, armor, etc). I have not yet noticed this with any other characters. I'll keep my eyes open.

I've always had that problem with every pc/npc that comes into my field of view on my playing computer. It never happened on my old laptop. I think its probably a local problem, and I think its likely that there are some large textures/animations/something being loaded by your graphics that are causing the freezes.

That happened to me last night, and made it almost unplayable.... All the random NPCs in Nagritch would make the game freeze up for two or three seconds at a time every few seconds....

But I think it was on my end... had a browser window open that was taking serious CPU for some reason. Will test it now.

Not sure if this is 1.69 or another thread I should start. I transitioned from one floor of the Temple of Sune and found myself on the Great Bridge instead of the next floor in the Temple.

Was really odd.

I have also been getting the sudden game freezes. The screen freezes for 4 or 5 seconds and i think my game has crashed then it starts to run again. It seems to happen when to me when i am in a fight with a NPC. I did put it down to the fact that i have installed NWN on a new computer and i needed to tweak things to get it running properly.

But the other night i spoke to somebody and they are getting the same freezes so i dont think its the new (far better) computer. I will try playing NWN on my old computer when i get time and see if i still get the freezes.
