Update: The old Vault is back to being available after a DNS snafu that didn't get fixed for several days.





It appears that IGN has, as of yesterday morning, closed the original NWN Vault. Sad

We knew this was coming eventually.  There is a new site, called The Neverwinter Vault (http://neverwintervault.org), created to take it's place.  Practically all of the custom content and modules from the old Vault had already been copied before the site went down, so now it's just a matter of Rolo Kipp and paineternal getting everything processed and posted up on the new site.

If you had an old Vault username, you're encouraged to go sign up up at the new site to grab your old username.

Today I'm going through the downloads page on the Aenea site to check and update any of the files that need to be hosted on my own website that were still on the old Vault.  The newest ones were already done, so it's just some of the older links I need to update.

All the other content I've made will just have to filter its way to the new Vault.

Stink! I know they said that all the content was captured, along with download counts and at least the first page of comments ... Damn, it was bound to happen sooner or later ... at least now, I won't get upset when the Vault doesn't remember my choice of NwN skins, and defaults to the NwN2 skin ...

Looks like I can still access the old Vault (so I can make personal backups of all of my own stuff), but it takes a hosts file edit on each person's computer.  The content is still there for now!

You can add this line to your computers's "hosts" file if you want.  Not sure how long this will work, but it does for now...

Thanks for that, boss! I can access it as well ... time to back up my own entries, I guess.

Ah, it looks like the old Vault is back up for the foreseeable future.  IGN has plans to leave the old Vault as an "archive", not devoting any more resources to it than they already have.

You can undo that edit to the hosts file, as the DNS issue has been fixed. Smile
