I'm returning after a very long time. I've ran the automated updaters and have ARF2 running. I can connect to the servers, but as soon as I select my character the nwmain client closes. I have a list of cd keys (as I used to have multiple sets of disks, and a generic from gog), but I'm not sure which is which. I don't know if the server is rejecting my cd key or if there is another issue. Please help, I'm anxious to get back in the game.
Also, I can connect and play on other servers, just not POA.
EDIT: The right combination of player name, cd key, and server allows me to get into the game. But I'm stuck on a boat being told that I need to speak my password, or some such nonsense.
In that case that means you or someone else has protected the login with the CD-keys you are using with a password. If the keys you are trying to login with are sort of some public keys this will not work out until you use your personal private ones. If your current keys are the GoG ones you need to ask them to give you your personal ones (just right them an email). They usually answer quite fast (a day or two). If they are from a pirated source this will not work out and you need to obtain a new set of keys. Funky can then allow to accept your account this new set.
