Hey there! I recently found out about this community and server, and was curious to try it, as it will be my first adventure in to NWN online play. I've roleplayed before, though I have no roleplay experience with NWN specifically. I got through the obsolete gamespy stuff, and directly connected to the server to make my character. I've finished making my character after quite a lot of thought in to how he'd be, how his abilities would reflect how I roleplay him, and such things. Then I clicked 'Play' when I was ready... and, I got an immediate boot message. I figured maybe it was just because I took too long creating the character, so I tried joining again, selected the character I just made, clicked Play... booted again. Tried this 2-3 more times until I gave up, and now I'm wondering why I keep getting booted, I've never been to this server before.


I have the Diamond edition of NWN, and CEP 2.4a installed (haks are in the haks folder, tlks are in the tlks folder). I don't believe I made any errors with installation, any ideas of why I'm unable to join? Question


I'm willing to provide any more information that is needed or requested. Thank you in advance for reading!

First and foremost question, did you buy the game in an onlineshop, and if, where?

Ok that explains it, gog.com uses standard keys in every of their sold NWN versions, those keys have been bouncing around the net for a long time now, so they likely get picked up by security systems of servers and those systems see them as suspicious and therefore deny them entry, the keys are enough for installing it is just that they often get blocked out due to "many IP's using the same Key"

Solution:

Do write an e-mail to gog requesting a unique NWN Key, they comply pretty quickly most of the time, and then you likely will be good to go again.

Until then, good luck, and hope not to see ME! If you ever watched Babylon 5, my character pretty much is Mister Morden.

Welcome friends!

Yes, Valerion is on the right track here. I see from the server records that you are using the GOG standard key. These keys identify an individual player and help protect your set of PCs from others using them (or just mussing with you). On the page where you can access/download nwn from the gog.com site there IS a link (hard to spot but it is there) regarding the cd keys and if you follow the instructions there, they will email you a unique key. Once you have that info, you need to examine the file*

c:\NeverwinterNights\NWN\nwncdkey.ini

replace the existing keys with the new ones GOG sent you and you will be OK to login.

My apologies for the difficulties posed by our security system, it is there to keep all our PLAYERs' PCs safe from mischief.

* since it is a gog install it MIGHT be in a different folder ... iirc they install to a 'gog' folder so maybe something like this:

C:\GOG\NeverwinterNights\NWN\nwncdkey.ini


Hope this helps. please keep us posted on your progress. Hope to see you online soon!

Thank you, both of you. I got my keys up and running, and after even more technical difficulties with NWN (I had to rename the main executable to get it to work again after swapping the keys and running Kingmaker, what a strange program!) I have tried to join the server. It must be passworded or something, I'm not able to join, prompts me for a player password. I give what I think my password was when I last tried joining, but it sticks its tongue out at me and denies me access. Server shows in red lettering. Sad

when the server is red it's rebooting so no one is allowed in, once it's done it will turn blue and that's when any one can join no password needed

When the server is passworded it is either just being restarted, updated, sometimes it takes a bit longer in case an update acts up, so it has nothing to do with your side, once it is open again you should be able to enter.

Friend Nightcaper,
My apologies for the bad timing, we are having technical issues with the server at this time, we'll get that resolved later today.

KUDOS to you for getting your nwn issues resolved, with luck we'll meet on the server later today.

The issue seems resolved and I've been able to successfully play. Wow, what a server! I'll definitely tell any friends I have who are interested in getting in to NWN about this place! I think I'll be hanging around for quite a while to come! Thank you for all the help here on the forums and in the game! Very Happy
