Overall, Neverwinter Nights is an okay game. The polygon 3D graphics craze is okay if you're on a fast machine, but if you're on an older computer it's choppy and annoying (mostly because you KNOW how cool it would be otherwise).
The advertising behind the Mac/Linux versions of NWN is *highly* deceptive, though, in large part because they *never* finished porting the NWN Toolset off PC, and they likely never will. If you want a toolset to make your own modules, you have to go with third party freeware -- with no support from MacSoft or Bioware. Now this itself would be no problem -- except that if you look above you'll see the toolset is plainly advertised. I had to find this out myself the hard way *after* purchasing the full version of the game -- and yes, the module editor was one of the only reasons I actually made the purchase (the story mode module that ships with the game is CRAP, to say the least -- compared to Baldur's Gate II, the voice acting, story and engaging characters are all weakpoints in NWN).

The demo is also available here at GameArena (Australian mirror) if you have problems.

Brillant Demo! Gives the flavor of the game with plenty of background for any class that you might want to play. Ran perfectly on my G4 533 Mghz AGP 2x. I did run into some unexplained quitting but I found that this only happens when you load a saved game and even then only infrequently. Highly recomended!

Played the demo last night on my G4 (PCI) 350Mhz with 448mb RAM, 32mb ATI Rage Nexus and OS 10.2.6. The game played perfectly using the default settings. I didn't notice any slow down or problems at all. Multiplayer games in the full version may require more juice though.

Played the full demo on my Pismo G3/500. Default settings. Nice game. Well laid out. A little jerky on my less than spec system but ultimately playable and enjoyable.

Download advice...
Make sure download filetype is bz2. Change it in the filename if you need.
YOU CANT RUN GAME FROM MOUNTED IMAGE. You must 1) mount image, 2) read the readme where it tells you to..., 3) Copy NWN Folder from mounted image to your hard drive, 4) launch game from harddrive.

I downloaded it whith no problem.
I played the whole demo with no problem
I downloaded the full Linux stuff too.
I merged Linux and Mac stuff in order to have a complete NWN for Mac. I could even translate it into French!
Sadly, the executable doesn't allow using Linux modules (that would practically be like a full version) so at the end of the demo, if I have loade the Linux prelude.nwm (instead of the default Mac Demo one), it says that it cannot load the module. Sad. I would have loved being able to do with a Mac what I coul do with a Linux (on my Linux box, it doesn"t work, maybe because of SDL)

For the rest, no Aurora (there won't be one for Mac, according to the main developper, Derek French), no online gaming...

i had the same problem - then i read the readme file. You can't run the game from the drive icon which loads onto your desktop, you have to open up the drive icon, then drag the neverwinter nights folder onto your hard drive. You should be able to run it from inside your drive after that with no problems. I am running it on my 600mhz G3 ibook running 10.2.6.

Cheers.

For those having trouble with the packages. The Readme says to copy the folder to your hard drive. That's what you need to do. On the disk image it is read only, and it won't work.

Has anybody actually managed to fix the problems "loading the module"? I mean, someone who had the problem, but figured out how to get around it.
