How to Play/Get Neverwinter Nights Free!

Post#1 » Thu Apr 26, 2018 9:50 pm

OK guys/gals. It's been over a month now since I told everyone that we will be running a 24/7 NWN server once again and would love to have everyone join us that cares to RP or simply play D&D with their buddies again online in the best CRPG ever created IMO.

I've spend almost 2 months now getting this new module up to speed and including the latest code, options etc all up and running. I'm still running a closed test server and I've got a few guys testing things daily now, but I wanted to post this topic to get everyone caught up to speed that wants to join in. Here's how;

1.) First off you'll need to download all 5 of these disks/ISO's and either run them directly on your laptops/PC's in order or download the diamond copy from GoG.com for $12.89 to have a fully legal copy of your very own. If your a cheap ass like me, download all of the following links

Disk 1: https://archive.org/details/Neverwinter_Nights_Installation_Disc_1_Atari_2003
Disk 2: https://archive.org/details/Neverwinter_Nights_Installation_Disc_2_Atari_2003
Disk 3: https://archive.org/details/Neverwinter_Nights_Play_Disk_Atari_2002
Disk 4: https://archive.org/details/Neverwinter_Nights_Shadows_of_Undrentide_Atari_2003
Disk 5: https://archive.org/details/Neverwinter_Nights_Hordes_of_the_Underdark_Atari_2003

Run them all in order for a complete install.
Or download the entire game (all 5 disks in one installer here)
https://www.gog.com/game/neverwinter_nights_diamond_edition

After you have installed all 5 disks or the diamond edition to your computers. Then you'll need the latest and FINAL patch for NWN installed. You can download that here;

https://neverwintervault.org/sites/all/modules/pubdlcnt/pubdlcnt.php?file=https://neverwintervault.org/sites/neverwintervault.org/files/project/1585/files/nwnenglish1.69hotuupdate.exe&nid=1585

Run the installer and it will find and patch the game to 1.69

Now you'll need to download and install the C.E.P. You can find that here;
CEP 2.65: cep_2_65_full.7z - Full download of 2.65 (3865)
https://neverwintervault.org/sites/all/modules/pubdlcnt/pubdlcnt.php?file=https://neverwintervault.org/sites/neverwintervault.org/files/project/8011/files/cep_2_65_full.7z&nid=8011

Download the CEP, unzip it and follow instructions. (You basically dump unzip and dump all the contents over your new NWN installation folders. IE: everything in the haks folder goes into the "haks" folder, everything in the tlk folder goes into the "tlk" folder < super simple ;)

After you have accomplished this, run the game. You'll need to login to Multiplayer, then use the "Direct Connect" option to connect to our server as GameSpy no longer supports a server list or CD verification. If you need CD keys (you will need 3), you can get them free on youtube (just search for nwn free cd keys).

If you spent the $ on the Diamond Edition I linked above, it comes with all your keys so you don't need to screw around, it will just work :)

If you have any questions or can't get things running, post here and I'll try n help :up:
