    Im new using and understanding the work of game jackal wich i have like it so far. My first test was on Never Winters 2 wich was succesful on the first time.. the second time he ask for the cd to upload the game and jackal closes down. I read the FAQs wich told me that some games must be run a few time from the original so jackal can continue backing and updating the profile. I have tried to activate the jackal with the game on the drive and still displays the same message, and the only option i have is to delete the profile and create it again... Is there a way i can play the game without deleting the profile so it can keep backing & updating if he is asking for the original cd?? Please some help :bowdown:

    Thanks Plegio :D

    heya, make sure that when you go to re-run NWN2 for what your describing above that you have Unlocked the capture mode on the game. Right click the profile and Untick "Lock Capture Mode" then run the game again.

    I'm about to install the latest update and hopefully NWN2 will work for me from GameJackal (previous version BSOD'd on me :D )

    Still gives me the same problem

    I Recently tried again the game and followed both recommendations.. untick Lock capture and also install latest Game Jackal program but it still requires the cd to upload the game.. when i exit Never Winters, Game Jackal does an update of what i have done so far and closes. I suppose that what Jackal instructed me about letting the game load from cd a few times is what i should do for now but.... Oh! i forgot to say that when i run the game at moments of loading time of places, i see that the cd/dvd driver show no light on that is reading the cd Game. So i think that it may be at the Run excel?? Not sure but i thought it would be good to mention it.

    Please do step by, read and make recommendations and thank for the help so far, really appriciated :D

    If you right-click on the profile, you should see an option called "Update profile". If it is not grayed out, use it to update the profile and tell me if that fixes the problem.

    If not, right-click the profile again and select "Export profile" then post the exported file here.

    Sorry for the late reply... I haven't forgotten about, I've been busy looking looking into your issue (Webslinger is also having a similar issue).

    Have you tried v3.0.0.7?

    I will let you know when I have something to report.

    I have downloaded the latest version of the Game Jackal and tried it, but it still requieres the cd to run the game. Obviously the problem is on the Run Exe. of this game :(. Thank you matt for your concern ill be checking the forum for any new information about this thread or any related. SLy Soft Products Rulez :D

    Ensure that you are using Game Jackal and that you have updated NWN2 to version 1.12

    Please click and answer the questions (especially 14 and 15). Thank you

    I'm not experiencing issues with NWN2 on Vista 64 bit ultimate nor Windows XP pro (all systems have more than 1 core cpu).
