Report article RSS Feed Tutorial: How to install + client.dll fix

A how-to guide on installing NNK and a fix for the client.dll error.

Posted by Kamasabe on Jan 12th, 2010

NNK Header

Tutorial Guide!

We are aware that some of you are having issues installing the game, and others with the client.dll problem. So here's a Video Tutorial!

I hope this has helped you guys with figuring how how exactly to install our game. Some of the parts, such as installation, have been sped up to save time.

If you are looking for the client.dll fix, skip ahead to 4:50. The method to fix it is to open up Half-life, go into Options > Video and change the Renderer to OpenGL mode. Remember, this isn't a guaranteed fix but might help.

We're currently working as hard as we can to get a patch out to you guys asap. So sit tight, and keep reporting any issues you may find in our Help Forum.

See you in the servers!
- The NNK Team

Only problem I had with this mod was that I had difficulties pressing the "OK" button and proceeding to the character menu.

Good to see that you guys respond to these things almost right away :)
Keep up the good work ^_^

I did finally after trying to join a server for 30min, play your mod for a few minutes. And the game feels really good and high quality. I only ran into two bugs, one small and one big that most be fixed prompto!

1, when doing rasengan I can see the wires on the 3d model of my shadow clone.

2. (this is the big problem) When connecting to any server it hangs up. The only server I could join was "community server 2" but I could only play for a couple of minutes, then I got a "connection problem" alert. And sometimes the game froze when I joined that server.

Fix this so we can enjoy your mod! :D

No. Cause there is no reason for them ATM.

Servers are all packed and with the patch that should fix crash bugs in the making the number should skyrocket.

Ive gotten quite a few disconnect bugs... only a couple different errors though.

My friend tried setting to opengl, it did not fix his client.dll error.

And finally, I still cannot register to the NNK FORUMS.

I cant even play the game with all the problems i have. Like whenever i start connecting to a server, when it gets done it freezes and when it unfreezes it tells me i timed out. And the 1st time i played i had bad lag on my own server and fps loss. Lol this game just hates me =D

Your not the only one, while I did not have any real connection issues to servers. I did however had insane lagg. The first server I joined no lagg. However I was randomly kicked from the server ( no explanation in console )

Since that point every server I joined even though my ping showed at 36-80 range ( depending on server I went to ) I was seeing lagg as if I had 300-400 ping. I find this odd due to the fact that, my system can run games like Stalker with no problems.. but this mod on a old engine like HL1 seems to be a different story. ( Leads me to think a bad memory leak might be in the mod, ...or worse.. )

So I am going to rephrase a previous statement I have made about this mod.. I think it should have been cooked much longer before it was taken out of the oven. ( Yes I know this is a beta, but a lot of the issues I am seeing generally get taken care of in the alpha stages.. )

you should turn off all the graphical features in OPTIONS > MULTIPLAYER > ADV OPTIONS

we've had over 10 pages of bugs that were fixed, and for the most part, our testers were able to play the mod. also, this is our first release, so indeed we will have a patch out

we wanted to get the project out to see how well it can hold up w/ the majority of the public, and now we know. also it was a way for people to try out the mod

Thanks now the game works perfectly.. its an awsome game i love the fighting style and animation. and i just love the way you have to time youre jutsu´s and getting the combination just right, it gives the game somthing i have missed when i have played ex esf somthing challenging not just hit and run :p

there is a few bugs though.. i seem to get stuck alot in the maps (pressing B solves that most of the time) and when i play on a server over the internet the game just randomly jump back to main menu.. (only on internet not over lan) but i have found out that making a lan game yousing hamachi is just as easy so that will work for now.. good game..

gameplay 5/5
animation 5/5
stability of the game 4/5

That doesn't mean you can't play it, it means you choose not to play it. Simply download steam, pay the $10 for Half-life, and you're set to go.

We Czechs are very touchy when it comes to money. And I got a bank account, but not a paypal, because I dont have access to the bank account. And friend... no, I dont.
