Love the game. Bought it for WIndows years ago, even then it was quite old. Now I run the client on FreeBSD.

Still haven't completed it, playing bits of it off and on since about 2004!

If anyone knows how to get past the 3 skeletons in Mutamin's challenge, I'm all ears.

I finished it some time ago, I played it because it runs on FreeBSD, but if you ask me the previous games were much better, especially PST and BG2.
In NWN I don't really like the story, the number of sidequests were also pretty limited and often of poor quality, and the less said about the henchmen system, the better.

There's GemRB to play Infinity engine games, not sure how usable it is.

Ugh, you play 5 minutes every week ... ?!

erm, yes I do tend to only play the game maybe once or twice a week, then leave it for about a month, then play it solidly for a week or fortnight.

I'm not a big gamer - I used to test professionally, which kind of takes the sheen off games.

On the off chance I ever finish the game, can I install my Shadows of Undrentide extension on FreeBSD?

I've got the WIndows expansion, which might mean some WINE nonsense...
