I found one of my old CD Keys that I have used before on HG. NO recollection of what username might have been associated with that set of Keys. I want to let my GRANDSON use that CD Key so he can play here.
1. I want to make sure I do this right. I just need to make a new nwncdkey.ini file with the second set of keys for HIS copy of NwN - right? I intend to do the install, then copy over that with all MY files. Swap out the nwncdkey.ini and I should be golden.
Been so long since I swapped out CD Keys, it's hard to remember. I'd like to get it all working on MY computer before loading all the stuff on his. So, with the NEW ini file, try to log in - get rejected - and then post to the CD Key thread? I don't know what might already be on that account, and I wouldn't be broken hearted if it was just empty. BUT, there is a CHANCE that it was the CD Key used by his Mother when she played here.
2. I just wanted to BRAG about bringing "fresh meat" to the party. hahahaha Not too often do you get to hang out and play games online with your Grandson. Okay, we have been playing together on and off since he was old enough to play Minecraft. BUT, it turns out the boy has a thing for D&D - who knew? So what's the BEST example of D&D I can think of? Duh - HG NwN REALLY looking forward to sharing the HG Experience - and SO glad it is still here for me to share! Win Win!
Okay then. Apparently there is no "manipulation" to be done. I made user specific versions of NwnCDKey.ini and NwNPlayer.ini files - swapped to the second set of Keys and logged on. No problemo.
I did use a brand new username (for my grandson) with the old CD Keys. My back account is there. My Bank Chests are there. There are just no toons. Don't care. He doesn't need any old toons anyway - lol.
So, it looks like all I have to do is go install all of this on his computer and we are good! WooHoo!
