Hey lilwisper - do you have a link to any/all hak files required?

 

I've updated the nwpad.weebly.com website to include a link to each servers hak location.

Thanks!

We only use CEP, no custom haks. We do use a custom 2da for cleric domains. I'll try to get that setup for you. Also could you change our webpage link to 

taliesin.epicgamer.org

 

Thanks

Ahhhhh we placed the chest in our town square. You must be in the new char area in the hall of gods. I'll make a note to fix that when I get home from work. Try to log off then log back in.

Jade, if the server kicks you out then log back in. If it kicks you out, then you might 1) have the generic GoG cdkey which you need to get a new one or 2) you are logging in with an account name already taken.

The chest doesn't have to be in the login area - just make it easily accessible to new first-timers who don't know where they're going.  I think it's ok to have them taste the flavor of your server.

You can also update the sign content to tell players where to find it in your module.  That might help people find it.

Yeah I placed it in the town square right under the sign there as if you were logging back in. Part of our fun was going to move it every so often. I'll work on the signs more to make it easier for new folks.

I do not have NWN from GOG. I have from the Diamond install CD's.

I have previously logged into your server under a different CD key when I had a different computer. Is it possible to reassociate my CD key?

If you're trying to log on using the same player name as before, then that is another issue.

You can log on with a different player account name.

I have archived all player accounts into a safe folder so you don't use the same characters as before, due to no haks during PADs
The SQL database is still working though checking log ins.

Yes, I can change your cdkey in that database. All I need is the player name you're wanting to log in with!

@ lilwisper - I just tried to log on as well.  Message for me says 'Server Found, attempting to log on", then hangs for a few secs and then returns that the connection timed out.  I'm not even able to get onto the character creation screen, which should be accessible even for those who don't have the haks.  So, its's seeing the server at the address, but for some reason the server isn't accepting the login.  My keys are from the original CDs and I've never logged on before.  You can probably see my connection attempts in the logfiles.

Direct Connection is:  64.79.75.122.  Also tried it with ports 5121 and 5122.  

Let me know if you need some help trying to get in again.

That's what the website is showing for me, too. Can't see anything but an error message so don't know if there are haks involved.

And taking me a LONG time.... over 3 hours here just to download that CEP needed for Arenthyor!

I'll have my admin look at it. We don't use any haks (outside of CEP) so you should be able to hop right in once the isssue is fixed.

3 hours for CEP - Did you do version 2.62?  That's a lot of time as it's only ~950mb.  Maybe the Vault is getting some traffic from people DL'ing all the site haks :D

Something happened. I get stuck at 312 mg. After an hour.

I don't have any CEP or PRC and its only 950mb? I thought they were huge files!

Isn't there a way to download the single files in RAR?

@Lady of the Cats

Arenthyor only uses CEP on the main server (a couple of other tileset haks are required to join the 2nd server - CTP and some Worms tilesets).  

But, be that as it may, CEP 2.62 is only 924mb compressed.

I had to download PRC and Q yesterday. Q took forever, but it was relatively easy (that might've taken a couple/3 hours itself).  PRC as I recall took some time, but not too difficult.

I'm going to have to try tonight. I'm running on XP and not the fastest but don't understand why the CEP Is hanging up. 

I looked in my old folders and found some CEP, but trying to log on to Arenthyor, says I am missing:

cep2_ext_tiles.hak
cep2_custom.hak
cep2_top_v24.hak

Where can I find just the individual files?

@NWNJade - updated your link to point to the vault page.

About getting into Arenthyor, that's strange.  Which server are you logging into?  There should be one titled Login.  It only requires CEP.

 

@ Lady of the Cats

I don't know of another source with the individual CEP files - possibly try to DL again?

 

Interested to know if anyone else is having trouble.  I've seen people on and have NWPAD check-ins from new player logins.  But, want to know if others with a clean/fresh install are having trouble

Since I'm having issues with CEP, then the only servers I've been able to log on to is Soul Forge.

Bastion of Peace - needs to sign up on a drop box to download the haks?

Lyonara - found the updated hak, but where are the regular haks that I need?

For Layonara, go to Layonara's Files link on the nwpad.weebly.com website.  I downloaded the All In One hak, but then, for some reason was still missing some haks and had to return to that page and go down to the "Individual Haks" section and individually download 4-5 more haks.  Then I was able to log in.

Thanks for Layonara's Files link. I was only unzipping one file and not the whole batch! oooops, got them now!!
And -very- interesting story and welcome area. 

I posted on our forum about the server crawl!! weeee.... this will be fun. The extra time will also give us a chance to try to download the other haks. 

As for the drop box. I have to sign up. As well as trying to download something on that Files link says "

You are not logged in or you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

For Kissmet, no one has to sign up for the forum. I have everything all in public view for the PAD.

I suspect my problem with logging into Arenthyor has to do with a changed CD key. My old computer blew up (almost literally, something inside melted) so I was forced to get a new one, and my friend gifted me a new NWN diamond install CD at the time. So I can see that I have already created characters on your server, but I cannot access them. Can you Change my CD key?

Ahh, that would do it - with no master server, we have security settings that check the cd key registered to the account.  This prevents unauthorized people from logging into your account.

We do have a system to hold multiple keys (as players oftentimes have muliple versions), but it does require that players first 'open' their account with the original key in order to authorize adding another key to the list.

I sent you a PM - respond back to that and we'll get you sorted quickly enough!

I think I made a mistake in my original report. I can log into Arenthyor with no problems. It is Aenea that I cannot log into. My mistake.

Day 3: Worlds Visited Soul Forge, Arenthyor, Kissmet, Taliesin, Layonara and Harrowport,  6/8. Still Cannot connect to Bastion of Peace or Aenea.

@ lilwisper   Ah, no thank you. I do appreiciate the offer, but something else is going on with my computer so I have to figure out that issue before I can download any large files. Running out of room on my hd is another issue!!  haha

I have been able to log on to Kissmet (of course), Soul Forge and Layonara.

That's why we split up our haks. Many players already have WoRms or CTP or even C.R.A.P.
Even though its nice to have everything that anyone has created for nwn, we just don't use everything from CEP, because if we used CEP, it would totally mess up all our plcs and we'd have to remodel  every single area!
We only use a few haks from Project Q (our hak update 2015). And we used Project Q because it takes old servers like Kissmet and enhances the old stuff we have.

Agreed that individual haks are best, but one option is to download and extract them into a separate folder and delete the files that you already have.  Move over only the ones that are new/you don't have.

So true!! And get those folders organized! I can't believe how many duplicates I have. Took me three full days to organize and I keep everything!  The NWN vault needed haks from the Wildlands tilesets and I had them! Oh good grief. Now eveyrthing is backed up on external drives. Two of them!

Have fun with Server Crawl today!! I'm getting ready to hit the ones I am able to. 
Kissmet Kinksters are ready to have a good time, too. We're having a fishing contest at 3pm EST today

Thanks for trying to get going into Aenea. Hopefully, we can get you going so you can explore a bit.

Checking the logs, I see multiple login attempts by 1 person. If that's you, the logs are telling me it was due to an incorrect CD key.

If you are using the default CD keys from gog.com, it's likely someone else has already signed in with those and nobody else can use them. Each set of CD keys can only be used by one player in Aenea.

If you download the optional dialog.tlk and replace the one in the NWN folder (not NWN/tlk), you should get a message box when booted with the reason. Just be sure to make a backup of your original dialog.tlk file first. Link: http://www.amethyst-dragon.com/nwn/downloads/hak/dialogtlk_aenea_optiona... (35)

 

Edit: After reading the rest of this thread, a different set of CD keys with a previously existing account would trigger a boot for account security reasons (so nobody can mess with your characters). If you are logging in as icywind1980, I can clear those on my end so you can log in with your current CD keys. Just let me know by PM so I get a notification of your message.

Having the chance to try other servers, hearing about some of the issues of folks connecting, and just plain having fun with it all; I wanted to extend Taliesin's celebration of NWN. I know GoG has the limit of the 2 weeks but I was hoping that after that is done, that we all continue to be supportive and cooperative. It was a real treat to see the thought and talent placed in making other worlds. I hope you all continue to enjoy NWN for many years to come.

I second that thought, lilwisper!  I was constantly amazed at the love and attention that the worlds have to bring their visions to life.

While NWPAd may officially end on 7/25, it doesn't mean that we have to stop.

The Server Crawl was, in my mind, a great success - i thoroughly enjoyed seeing the same people in different worlds and forming a type of community amongst ourselves.  I'd love for that to continue and expand.  I had a blast and wanted to spend so much more time in each world - 1.5 hours was nowhere near enough, but any more in one day probably wouldn't have been practical.

As PW hosts and builders, our community is not a zero-sum game.  For someone else's world to expand does not mean that another's world has to contract.  We can all improve and expand by working, and playing, together.  That's been a big part of this community's success and why we still endure.

Anyway, I think there are lots of learnings that we have all learned through this process, such as making it as easy on players as possible (e.g. clearly and prominently displaying your IP address and simplifying hak file downloads are the two that come most readily to mind, though there are others).

Once NWPAD officially concludes, I'd like to get us together to discuss how we can continue, and build, this fellowship.

Thanks!

DITTO!!  One thing about hopping on other servers is sharing ideas!! I'm currently doing that with one other server now. My scripter helping them and they helped us big time with an issue that I was not able to figure out!  I'm sorry that I just was not able to get on those servers with the CEP. I was only able to get on to Soul Forge and found it enjoyable to work the CNR crafting system. 

Anyways.... Seems Layonara has dropped out. Tried to log in and "password was incorrect" and then went to their website and read this... 

:Second, we will only be running our events until the 16th of July, at 7am Pacific/9am Central/10am Eastern/3pm BST/10pm China Standard Time/(July 17th)12amAEST."

I, for one, really enjoyed the server crawl. I wasn't able to stay awake for all of it, but I had a great time. I missed the end of NWPAD, because I was on holiday. But I will definittely be checking out Kissmet again! And Soul Forge is up and running 24/7 and gladly welcomes new players with open arms.
