Free Diamond Edition on GOG

Post by RR_Texan » 02 Dec 2016, 14:23

GOG is running a give away, free copy of NWN Diamond.

Just picked up another copy for myself.

Do they give keys anymore? I remember that was a problem with GOG at some point not giving out keys so you couldn't do certain things, like join the EDON server?

I used the keys they provided me in my account, but after logging in it says I've been booted. Now I don't know if that is an Edon thing for a GOG thing.

From memory the game has a code built in if you send them a support request they'll give you a new key for online

Yes, they have a little app CD Key Changer, it just puts the keys you get in your GOG account in the nwncdkey.ini file. The initial keys in the nwncdkey.ini file are different than I see in my account.

That is why I didn't know if something had to be done on the server side to authenticate the keys, if not I'll ping GOG support for more keys.

You need to tell the Edon server you have new keys if you want the new keys to let you in.
However, this will not work if the new key you try is not a unique one.

So how do I tell the server I have new keys? GOG says the are for online use, so I'm assuming they are unique.

Join server with old keys, use option on emote wand to unlock account for new key.

Does this limit my account to the one set of keys? I actually play on all three computers, it just depends on who else in the family plays.

What if you are new to the server? I've two friends that picked it up from GOG and want to join the server for the first time.

thanks

No, it does not - I can successfully log in from multiple computers. You just have to use the option on the emote wand for each different system you're logging in from.

As long as they've gotten their unique keys from GOG, they will be able to successfully log in unhindered. After their first login, however, if they would like to log in from a different computer, they too must do the emote wand process, as the authentication is bound to whichever place they logged in from first.
