Neverwinter Nights Mod Installer Tool

The Neverwinter Nights Mod Installer Tool (NIT) is designed to make it easy to manage, install and uninstall your Neverwinter Nights mods. The tool makes it safe to try out new mods because it restores everything to the way it was when you use NIT to uninstall mods.

See Version History for more information about changes made since the initial release.

How it works

  1. Click New Mod, enter the name of the mod and click OK
  2. Download all the files required to play the mod into the folder that gets created by step 1
  3. Click Create Installer
  4. Click Install
  5. Start Neverwinter Nights and play the new mod.


Requirements

- .NET Framework 4.5 or higher (Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or later).

Key Features

  • Automatically constructs a NIT Mod Installer from a variety of source file formats including BioWare Premium Module Installers, Zip, 7-Zip, WinRar and Exe files that contain compressed contents as well as Community Patch Project (CPP) patch files
  • Configure how NIT associates files with Neverwinter Nights folders using "maps" for file extension names, special folder and file names as well as an "exclude" list to ensure unwanted files are not included in your Mod Installers
  • Detects and resolves conflicts between different mods
  • Record information about each of your mods (Rating, Notes, Web Link, best weapon to use, etc)
  • Categorise your mods into Groups to make it easier to view mods of interest
  • Create Restorer packages of the original NWN installation so you never lose any original files
  • The Game Saves Manager allows you to play a number of mods concurrently by moving your current game saves to a backup folder and then restoring a previous backup of the mod you want to play
  • The Mod Explorer provides a view of all your mods and associated Mod Information in a tabular format that can easily be sorted using your own criteria
  • Use the Installation Manager to restore your favourite mods after a fresh install of Neverwinter Nights or help track down problems with Mods that interfere with each other
  • Use the Installation Analyser to establish the source of each of the files in your Neverwinter Nights installation folder
  • Processes 2da, bic, bif, bik, bmp, bmu, cdx, dbf, dds, dlg, erf, fpt, hak, itp, key, mdl, mod, ncs, nns, nwm, plt, pwk, ssf, tga, tlk, txi, utc, uti and wav file extensions as well as the TexturePacks folder to support CPP files (plus anything you want to change, add or remove)
  • Deals with Overrides, which can also be configured.
