CD Key Already in Use?

Post by e7seif on Sun Jan 18, 2015 4:32 pm

Hey I haven't had much chance to play the past few days, but I tried to log into the server tonight and couldn't.

It said my CD key was already in use. :/

You will probably need to email or PM The Amethyst Dragon to have him verify that your CD keys are in the database. You aren't by chance using generic multiplayer CD keys that come with the Gog.com version of the game, are you?

Hello!

I actually don't know. I guess I must be! It never occurred to me.

If you never entered your own personal keys, and you got the game from gog.com, then you will want to email customer service to request your own personal multiplayer keys.

Sorry, GOG customer service? The annoying thing is I used to own a physical copy, but I wore out the disc ages ago.

Anyway, thank you for the help. Smile

Techless One here. You might be able to find your number in the nwncdkey.ini files.

Ah, if your current install was from physical CDs, then you should have your own CD keys already in there... I know The Amethyst Dragon is very busy migrating the family, so hopefully he will see your plight and be able to respond soon. I apologize,I am not having any luck finding DM commands that might be of help...

There is some additional info in this post, however it appears only The Amethyst Dragon has the commands needed to help update/change the CD key variables.

You could drop $10 and get a new digital copy from gog.com:

http://www.gog.com/game/neverwinter_nights_diamond_edition

Then email their customer service for personal multiplayer CD keys (which as Elhanan said, you would need to put into the nwncdkey.ini file)

Sadly my physical copy is long gone. This is a 100% GOG install. But I wonder if maybe I save the nwncdkey.ini by accident somewhere... I used to mod the game a lot and do mass lazy backups. I will look into this. Smile

If you fail to find your old CD keys in a backup of nwncdkey.ini, you can request a set of unique keys from gog.com...there's a link on the NWN Diamond page there that will lead to a support form, and you just pick the option saying you need multiplayer keys. They'll email you a unique set as an attached .ini file, and you can just overwrite the old one with the unique set.

When you do this, send me an email (with your game username) to let me know. I'll log in as DM and wipe the gog generic keys from your spot on the server database, then you'll be able to login with the new keys installed and they'll automatically be added to the database for your username.

Thanks so much! You have all been very helpful. Smile

I'm hoping to get some time to put into this over the weekend.

I did get a key from GOG, but have not had much time to play for a while.

We have all kinda been pretty busy lately - no sweat.

Be sure to email The Amethyst Dragon with your NWN username so he can set the server up to link your new keys to your account.
