Not sure if my original account was #14 or #33, it's early '04 regardless, but we had a forum on the BioWare site before this one so say I joined Thain late '03... Damn 16 years. Turned 34 in December. 😎🍻 Cheers Thain Family!

I had a character named Ryleena Windstrom on my account OuterSanctum (like my forum name). I'd like to play her but I got a new computer and with it a blank character list. Someone mentioned in chatbox that it might be a CD Key issue but I don't have my old one handy. Can someone help me move this character or tell me what I'd need to do to gain access to her again?

Thank you!

She's already ported to EE. In fact when I log in to Thain it says "this account is already linked to another player" and boots me.

Same for me (Zhymm). My characters were all gone. I made a new one called Zhymm, asked for a character transfer. Now I get booted every time I try to log in the server.

If I were organized I'd be dangerous.

These kinds of character transfers (specifically, an existing set of EE characters to another EE account) are pretty messy for us to do and take a ton of manual work.

If you guys could both post:
-The names of the characters you need moved
-The name of the old account
-The name of the new account (with the same capitalization it has in-game!) and at least one character on the account (feel free to make a character if one isn't there, but I need the character name.)

I don't understand how I ended up with two accounts (if that's the case). Did a re-install (via Steam), launch the game from Steam, log-in on Thain and my characters are all gone. I'd done re-installs via Steam before (after computer upgrades) and never had this problem. Could Steam have fuxored my account? The Thain server seems to think it's a new account ... I'm tired and confused.

And I have a ton of characters, just look at my signature. And that's not even half of them.

I think if you reinstall from the same Steam account, it should keep the same key! At least that's what I'd expect!

The old install wasn't on GoG or Beamdog client?

Two years ago when Thain went to NwN:EE I bought that version from Beamdog and installed it (probably via Beamdog, I don't remember the details). Everyone (IIRC) had to have their characters ported over from the old server to the new one. No problems with that, all mine ported over.

Ultimately Beamdog hooked up with Steam and I began using my Steam account to launch the game when I played. In fact, I was in game the Sunday before Christmas (Dec 22). An event was starting (Nature Night) and a DM sent me a PM asking if I wanted in. I couldn't stay long and opted out.

The thing is, I've done numerous re-installs of NwN:EE. I run linux as my OS and often try out different distributions. When I'd install a different distro I would also re-install some software packages, including NwN:EE. It's easy for me to re-install NwN:EE via my Steam account, it only takes a few minutes.

That's what I had done on Dec 22 and just popped into Thain long enough to make sure everything was fine, which it was. This past Thursday (Dec 26) I did the same thing (I'd got a new SSD for my computer for Xmas, so replaced the HD in it). But this time, after logging into Thain, my characters were gone. I was like "wtf??" Hence my current dilemma. The cd keys listed in my accounts at Steam and at Beamdog are the identical and they're the same ones I have in my notes from the first Beamdog install 2 years ago.

What changed between the 22nd and the 26th? My hardware, but that shouldn't affect my Steam account. I have a character on another server and now that server behaves the same way. So, I suspect my problem lies with Steam. Was there a recent update of NwN:EE or with the Steam client?

If I were organized I'd be dangerous.

Not sure if this helps or not, but there is a newer update for NWN EE available from Beamdog that Thain has not implemented yet. If you have installed that latest update, you're running the wrong version of the game to play on Thain. Might be worth looking into.




Styvn-elf, Tel'Varataurie. -Clickedy- (player loggin = Thranduil Greenleaf) -Clickedy-

Roklynd Elendili-half elf, servant of Mielikki. (player loggin = Kun tao)

Theven Nimblfingers-halfling, lock & trap master. (player loggin = Gregor Wyrmbane)

Bob Johnson-human, large meat shield. (player loggin = Kun Tao)

Bor'el Greenleaf-elf, healer, priest of Corellon. (player loggin = Kun Tao)

Edan Amandil-human, healer. (player loggin = Gregor Wyrmbane)

John Smith-human, blacksmith. (player loggin = Gregor Wrymbane)

Rosco Underhill-halfling, "Underhill family" hit man. (player loggin = Gregor Wrymbane)[/color]

Kings are fools, and nations of men greater fools, to do the bidding of such men and be commanded by their pettiness.... and to die for their whims.

I think the latest mini-update is cross-compatible, it should be fine!
