Err... How do I install this/join the server?

Post  Kwigo on Mon Dec 12, 2016 12:50 pm

Hi,

I couldn't quite find anything in the FAQs... I don't get how I'm supposed to install both HAKs that I downloaded (2.60 and 2.61). Also, once I've done this, how do I join Argentum Regio? When I choose "Multiplayer", it asks me to create an account or to input my user name + password if I alreade have an account.

Thanks!

so you only need cep 2.61 to join, you do need to create a multiplayer account that you use to log in to multiplayer servers. if you just got the cd key from grog i would suggest making sure to get the unique cd key the offer. once you have done that you try to log in and our game master will accept your game key and then you can log onto the server

THANK YOU for your interest in our server!

I'll help you if I can.

If you have both CEP 2.6 and CEP 2.61 - so I understand more precisely what it is you have there, can you tell me the file sizes please? Thanks in advance.

Be well. Game on!

P.S. Thanks to Lady Aloura for calling my attention to this. . . I'll watch this thread closely for the next few hours at least.

The following Instructions presume you have Neverwinter Nights installed on your computer and that you have installed some version of the CEP 2.1 or more recent.

TO login to our server. . .

launch your NWN software*

*WINDOWS os users more recent than XP be sure to run this software in ADMINISTRATOR MODE and in compatibility set to XP SP3.

choose MULTIPLAYER

You will be prompted for a Player Name and Password. You should choose ANY Player Name (try to be original/unique) type ANY Password. The reason you can do this is that both Gamespy support is over and the Master Server is down. DO NOT WORRY. The NWN has a work-around and we endure. Very Happy

CLICK the OK button.

select JOIN INTERNET GAME, you will likely get a message screen after that, click the only button offered to close it when done reading it. Next you can click the button DIRECT CONNECT and give it the IP (address) of my server which is 96.31.77.127 (there is no player password for my server so leave that blank) then click OK.

Hi, thanks for your help !

My main trouble right now is that I don't quite understand how I'm supposed to "install" both CEP things. I downloaded the 8xxMB and the 4xxMB .rar archives like it's told in the sticky thread for new players, but I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do with both files since I didn't see any .exe or .msi or whatever in the archives. Do I simply extract both archives in my NWN installation?

Gotta go to bed right now, I'll check back tomorrow. Good night Smile

Friend Kwigo,

Some CEP versions are more 'automated' in terms of installation than others (the older ones). So I wanted to be certain which ones you had before I gave you instruction on what might need doing.

A .rar file is like a .zip file, it is a compressed file or group of files. Double click the file for cep2.60, if it opens, find the content files tha are '.hak' files, these should all be extracted to your game folder's   '/hak'  folder. Next find the files that are '.tlk' files and extract them to your game folder's '/tlk' folder, make this folder if none exists. Close the rar file.

Next, open the cep2.61 update file. Again find the '.hak' files and extract them to your  game folder's   '/hak'  folder. Next find the files that are '.tlk' files and extract them to your game folder's '/tlk' folder, make this folder if none exists. Close the rar file.

Job done. you should now be able to login to the server, make a PC and begin play. I look forward to meeting you on the server soon (free smokebombs are yours for your tenacity!).


NOTE if the cep files do not open for you, you need to get the free software from http://www.7-zip.org/

Be well. Game ON!
