I just recently went thru that nightmare (of a complete reinstall) and then I did another install this weekend with no problems. I have a copy of the Free GoG install, which I use to get all the "system/registry stuff" installed. THEN I take the "one step" overwrite of that install with my fully installed and updated NwN. Swap out the nwncdkey,ini and nwnplayer.ini and "poof" all is golden.
I have the files, can zip them up or something. (Oh, and the GoG file I have is not from their NwN EE release (which I didn't buy), but from when they openly gave the game away for free.
Just add CD Keys
PS: the FULL NwN folder with all the bells and whistles runs just over 9GB.
Absolutely Doppelganger. I was going to use "dummy files" for those IF I made a copy. And I am NOT offering them to anyone specifically. Just saying it's a brand new clean install. IF someone was to host such a file (that can't be used without CD Keys).
I have just returned (well, I am still messing in the test chamber to find a build I like) I was gone for so long that I think all my existing toons are pretty much outdated now. Thus I came to the conclusion to start afresh from level 1 and relearn the server as a new player would with the bonus of some extra gold in my wallet and a couple of bank chests full of loot. I constantly see multi boxers online and to be honest I have no issues with this idea. I am just happy that I usually see a couple of people around. When I first logged in after coming back to try figure out what characters were in my vault I had an issue with an empty vault. Asked on !newbie and got help flipping quickly (muppet me didn't realize my gsid was case sensitive) So all in all I would say from my current point of view the state of the server is excellent, but maybe a bit empty at times.
not sure if any of you remember me but i wanted to bring up something on this now i will prob be coming back soon myself i liked the server but i always left myself for long breaks because i know its a party server but not being able to do things on your own at all unless your multi or have super gear kinda ruins it when your alone hell i figured out how to solo toyshop on a druid at level 49 and alil higher till the portable hole break point and gave it to prep and anyone who asked at one point why because honestly its boring not making progress when your alone is torment i like most of you guys but ssj2poliwhirl2 is somewhat right i brought 3 people here and its a turn off knowing none of us can progress or will ever make it to end game without feeling like burdens and any group map takes multiable hours alot of people do not have that time im not dising the server i love the place im just saying while it works for vets its harder on new players to even matter also i must of missed alot what happened to prep? also i know im late but wanted to say this
Some hints about HG. 1. Yes. This server takes time. This can be a turn off for instant gratification seekers. 2. HG is a party server. That means players also expect other players to at least try to learn the game. Being dragged feels yucky. So does dragging someone. 3. Do not fear, there are many people willing to help. It just may not be instantaneous. 4. HG still is fun after so many years. How cool is that?? 5. Patience is a good thing
