To start, you must first download the following files:

Next, locate the following directories:

  • NWN2 Home Directory -- The Neverwinter Nights 2 folder inside of your documents folder.
Example: "C:\Users\<User>\Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2"
  • NWN2 Install Directory --The Neverwinter Nights 2 installation directory.
Example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Atari\Neverwinter Nights 2"
Example: "C:\GOG Games\Neverwinter Nights 2"


Toolset Files

The following instructions should place the files in the correct place.

  1. Open the file that you downloaded. It should contain two folders, with the files already organized for you.
  2. Open the NWN2 Installation Directory.
  3. Extract files from the .zip archive, merging as needed.

Advanced Script Compiler

  1. Quit the toolset, if it is active.
  2. Open the NWN2 Installation Directory.
  3. Navigate first to NWN2Toolset then to Plugins.
Example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Atari\Neverwinter Nights 2\NWN2Toolset\Plugins"
  1. Open the archive, and open the ToolsetPlugin folder.
  2. Extract NWN2ToolsetCompilerPlugin.dll and NWNScriptCompilerDll.ndl to the Plugins folder specified above.
  3. Launch the toolset and enable plugin loading (if you have not done so). To do this, open the View > Options menu item in the toolset main menu bar, click on General, change the "Security > AllowPlugins" option to read "Load all plugins". The default is to only load Obsidian provided plugins.
  4. Restart the toolset.

Once installed, simply compile scripts as normal and the Advanced Script Compiler will automatically be used.
