We seem to have a bit of a faction problem with some shop keepers in the city being somewhat less than customer friendly.

Hey guys! In 4-5 hours time, I'll be taking the server offline for a couple of hours to do the following:

Change the powersupply, as it sounds like it's dying.

Remove a harddrive, so that I have nothing personal stored on the server anymore.

Move the server into its new home, in the utility room.

The process should be done in a couple of hours. I'm also setting up a new router, which should be relatively painless, but you never know!
Anyway, I'm aiming for a couple of hours. Thanks!

Hi folks.

This is going to be an issue in the future, where Beamdog updates the game but the server is not yet up to date. For those who haven't been with us since the days of Bioware updating the classic game this will be all brand new to you. When your client version and the server version do not match you cannot play on Thain!

WOE IS ME STEAM AUTOMATICALLY UPDATES!

Fear not brave adventurer, you can stop this process;

  • First, launch Steam
  • Go to the games tab.
  • Locate NWN: EE and right click, then click on Properties
  • Under updates select 'update this game when I launch it.'

Once that is done, do not launch it though steam. Instead navigate to this folder; Steam\steamapps\common\Neverwinter Nights\bin

[ image disabled ]

Double click on NWNmain.exe and resume being some sort of make believe hero or whatever it is you do.

PS: For extra points make that EXE a shortcut on your desktop

[Update!]

If you do accidentally update your client, there is a work around! (At least for steam users)

Right click the game in steam and select properties:

Go to the BETAs tab of the resulting pop up and select "oldstable" from the drop down menu.

And I'm using the linux client. The file path you've shown above does not match what I have.

OK, nevermind. I think I have sorted it out.

Beamdog users

Look for this and launch the game from there, it 'should' avoid Beamdog updating you. AFAIK only the Beamdog launcher gives the update option.

In the lower right hand corner of the Beamdog launcher, there is a gear icon.
When this is clicked, there is a "settings" option in the drop down menu.
When this is clicked a "settings" menu opens.
There is a check box (technically, a circle) labeled "check for updates daily'.
This can be clicked to make the circle empty.

I believe this a necessary step to avoid auto updates.

Thank you, Payne, for showing where that launcher is. I would have never found that location on my own.

When your client version and the server version do not match you cannot play on Thain!

I can't log in to Thain, it's greyed out in the games list and in my favorites list. I was wondering if this was the sign that the game has updated to not match anymore. Although I've used the don't-update login method since the beginning.

Could you tell me how to see the client version so I can tell if my game has sneakily updated?

I also cannot log in. I use beamdog but even running nwnmain.exe - Original Thain is greyed out
*edit* I had disabled updates in the beamdog client - looks like it updated anyway?

Thain has already updated to the latest version (we did it the day after the patch launched.) so if you can't log in now, try turning your updates on and downloading the most recent patch.
