Ladies and gentlemen,

Due to Bioware's way of programming, some of our custom content is not automatically available during character creation. We're trying to limit this problem through scripting, but there are still some rare instances where you'll want to use a Preloader to make your character build possible.

At the moment, you will need to use a preloader if:
  • You want to take crafting feats (Extra Profession and Able Crafter) on your first character level.
  • You want to take the Spell Sharing feat on your first level.

How to use the preloader:

1. Download NWN Preloader here. The installer works fine, or download the zip if you wish (and follow the instructions in the readme).

2. Go to your new Preloader directory, where you will find the files module_default.ini and server_default.ini

3. Edit those files so they look like this:
module_default.ini
Code:
; This section covers any module that is loaded locally by nwmain or nwserver
; It is used as the base of other sections that get pregenerated
; By default this will inject CEP v2.1 and the Revisited Weapons
; hak into any module you load. If you don't want that to happen
; delete the section or comment it out
[details]
preload_0=HAK:woc_2da
tlk=TLK:caenyr_mod


server_default.ini
Code:

; This section is the same as other:module, except is used for generating
; sections for new servers.
; By default this will preload CEPv2.0 the first time you connect to a server.
; After entering the server preloader will detect the actual hakpacks used, so
; it's fairly safe to leave this enabled, like i have by default.
[details]
auto_0=HAK:woc_2da
tlk=TLK:caenyr_mod


4. Start NWN by using nwpreload.exe in your main directory.

5. Create your character and have fun!

After you have created your character and logged them on, you do not need to use nwpreload.exe in the future. You only need to use it once to create your new character.

Have fun!

When you say to edit the files do you mean to delete the whole contents of the file and just replace it with the text above?

Yes.
