Is it possibile to create a nwnx plugin in order to display imput box in nwn where players can type text? (like the one in nwn2 for example)

if it is possible, it would need to be nwncx (Client Extender)

And it would require that the players have it installed on their machines.
So you wouldnt be able to have it solely on the server.

It is possible to detect the presence. You'll need a corresponding nwnx module to a client module. Basically have them talk on their own port. If the client doesn't pickup, then obviously its not installed.

In terms of converting the Linux NWNX plugins. What exactly is required?

My understanding so far is that the Linux NWN server executable is different from the Windows NWN server executable - this causes the memory addresses to be different which is why the Linux plugins don't work on Windows.

So to convert a plugin - would it just be a matter of decompiling the NWN Server executables, and finding the correct memory addresses and then updating the Linux source files, then compiling them into DLL's? It couldn't be that simple could it?

(I understand that there may be plugins that make linux system calls or rely on linux only libraries - these would take a bit more work of course but these should be the minority if they exist at all, right?)

I don't know what's required, but I can say that you don't need to decompile anything. NWNX and all its associated plugins are open source.

NWNX itself is open source, but it modifies the code of the game, and you have to reverse engineer the game to be able to do that.

rebamarvin - for the most part, yes. The hardest part in NWNX dev is finding the correct functions and offsets and debugging to make it work. There are some differences in memory layout, stack management, memory management, inlining, etc. between platforms, so you'd have to do most of that again on another platform. It's easier when you already know exactly what to look for, but still takes time.
