Probably depends on which one. Apparently there are (at least) four different endings: Good, Good optimal, Evil, Evil Optimal... if you get all the mask pieces determine if you can get the optimal ending or not. And then the fate of some of your followers may vary a bit depending on certain actions taken in the game.

I'll write up my thoughts about it, as soon as I can collect them . Not that it will be much use seeing as how the American release was today - unless we have any Australian NWN2 fans among us?

Edit: You no longer have to use the installation instructions on the BioWare boards. The autopatcher has been updated with a new patch which allows you to install NWN2, then MotB, then patch it.

Well, surprise!

16, I believe, allows you to install NWN2 fresh, then install MoTB, then apply this one patch and be done with it. I will confirm when I get in the office tomorrow.
Your game should be at 1.10.1116 (I think that's it, anyway)

NO, the US ship date was today. Atari likes to mess with you like that. Nobody actually has it in stores and it's not available online yet.

Oh what a wonderful blunder:

Edit
If this patch has already been installed, you will need to manually open the file "nwncdkey.ini" and replace the CD key(s) with the original keys you entered at the time of installing the game. The file can be found in the NWN2 install folder.

If you have a backup of nwn2cdkey.ini from after you installed MotB, you can instead just restore the file from your backup.
Ever the optimist: at least they're addressing the issue.

Edit: But I don't actually know what he's talking about because my CD keys are unchanged... must be a randomly occurring glitch - it should only affect online play, anyway.

This is an example of why I usually wait a few weeks before applying a newly released NWN2 patch. Obsidian's track record on the patching front so far could be summed up in the word over-eager. As in they seem to be so keen on getting the improvements out to the community that they don't bother testing that it works properly and don't break anything in the process.

Does this patch do anything else other than remove the need for the US crowd to go through aforementioned arcane update procedure? (If it doesn't add anything new I'll just skip it, too much work to patch NWN2 otherwise since the autoupdater throws a fit if it detects any modded files.)

By the way, which ending did you get?

Mod note:
I've split discussion about the story and endings of the Mask of the Betrayer expansion into a separate thread found here to keep the story spoilers more separate from talk about other aspects of the game.
