Ah was afraid of that ...
Hope you get EE soon and see you online again.
maybe Steam will put it into a discount deal again ... otherwise ... it really isn't that much money if you think about it .... the old game was more expensive.
2  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Trouble connecting on: 09 January 2019, 20:34
Server wont let me login. Error message says it timed out.

Do you only get the message timed out? ... what does the log file say? ... I think you will find more answers there.
Plze dont ask me where to find the log file ... I dont know either ... but Google knows  Tongue

I really really hope you read the forum about the "enhanced edition transport" first?
http://www.gondorvsmordor.com/gvm2/forum/index.php?topic=3354.0
 ... otherwise its a logical error.

And please kind sir/mylady ... next time post things in the right topic.
("Server Down" is not the topic to post these kind of messages)

6 jan 2019: 12:05 till 12:50 (GMT +1)
Server will be down for short while ...
(minor maintenance / tweaking)

Done!
Sorry for the inconvenience
4  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Reboot time on: 05 January 2019, 20:54
Server rebooted to fix several specific GvM issues (like classes changes)
Have fun again!
 Grin
5  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 05 January 2019, 20:44
OK thnx for letting us know ...
I think I made a mistake .... I'll try to fix this.
but probably need to reboot the server then.
to be continued ...

Oops indeed my fault ... forgot to copy the overrides
Will be fixed after reset ...
Fixed!

LOL
Great to read it works now ...
And if at some point you really want you're old stuff back ... just give a PM and mail  Grin
9  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 04 January 2019, 16:37
Gets stranger and stranger ... no nothing added to server at all ... no modifications ... only a reboot yesterday.
And
Hak files .... hmmm maybe a resubsribe for the CEP-files by The Amethyst Dragon ???
did you made a toon called maricleonson or angelofdeath ? These ones I see made on Thuesday 1st januari

Now trying with a RL friend to make 1st connection to server ... keep you posted

OMG .... he has the same problem ... in the server and within 2 seconds gone again ... his error: missing required hak files ... same as your error.
rebooted the server ... rebooted the host PC ... nothing works yet Sad
ongoing investigation ...

Wow!!
Speaking about buggy programming ....
Found it ... thnx to Bazbas !
Workshop subscribings/installs from CEP are placed in:
<steam-install-place>\steamapps\workshop\content\704450\1312882397
So Solution:
In C:\Users\<youre-name>\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\nwn.ini
change under [Alias] the HAK and TLK references to the right place!

Pffff what a strange old skool solution .... did not expect this from Steam
Hope this will help you too
10  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 04 January 2019, 15:06
Hmmm weird,
Yesterday I saw someone playing without any trouble ... are you using Steam-NWN:EE join multiplayer game for making a connection and not a direct-connect link?
11  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 03 January 2019, 21:40
@ Satorial:
see this one from bad karma:
http://www.gondorvsmordor.com/gvm2/forum/index.php?topic=3354.0
Hope I'll see you soon online
12  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: New Era of GvM on NWN-Enhanced Edition on: 03 January 2019, 12:03
Minor setback building new hardware ... will not make it before this weekend
tomorrow I'll start building ... I'll guess this Saturday it will run for real  Grin
Rest of this weekend I'll look into automation and administration
(auto-backup / admin entry / auto-reboot / etc.)
Almost there folks !
.... meanwhile (test)server runs smoothly ... so feel free to start already  Cheesy
13  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 01 January 2019, 01:31
Hey Satorial

I did wrote:

can also ask to import toons for the test if you want)
testserver will continue in final form or at least the servervault will

So plze join ...
test is only test in name ... because it will undergo some minor shutdowns while building it on new hardware and new configuration ... after that it will run same but only more stable Smiley
No one ever said module itself would be changed besides making it work in "enhanced-mode"
So dont need worry bout losing stuff.

Hope to see you online
 Grin
14  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: New Era of GvM on NWN-Enhanced Edition on: 30 December 2018, 16:40
Another tip:
Take the CaGui colored icons from Steam Workshop
https://steamcommunity.com/app/704450/workshop/
 ... looks awesome!
 Grin

Update:
Expect within 3 days a new Enhanced server online ... (test in name will be gone)

16  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: New Era of GvM on NWN-Enhanced Edition on: 29 December 2018, 12:56
W00t!
Best news I've heard in quite a while!
Thnx b_k  and Sky !!
 :pompom:

That means we've got ourselves a brand "new" enhanced server very very soon  headbang

Only need to figure out some automated administrating stuff, but that will probably work out just fine too

@b_k: I've read youre pm and mail ... will get to the porting in a couple of hours .. or at least today! Smiley
BTW I loved the story of Zwelgje too!
Also great to read you've once got a part in scripting on our server too.  Worship

@Sky:
Public CD-key: Good one
I think at least its in youre own local vault ... but maybe b_k knows where to get this?
In the worst case scenario .. you can calculate youre own public key from youre own license number ...
(read that somewhere online)
edit: thnx to b_k here a link how to get it:

17  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: New Era of GvM on NWN-Enhanced Edition on: 26 December 2018, 23:05
OK,

It looks like using a different portnumber than 5121 is causing the trouble .... at least I think the Steam mechanism behind this NWN EE is not yet made for this kind of change.
Therefore I will try a more aggressive approach ... I will shut down the old server (almost nobody is using this lately anyway)
This will "free" the default port 5121 and therefore will get the "TEST server" (testserver till I get my hardware and configuration ready) online for everyone on the Steam serverlist.

So for short:

There will be no need anymore for a direct connection shortcut ... Steam NWN-EE client should work without any modification!
If Not ... see the info from bad_karma above.

I'd like to hear from you if you still experience communication errors with our GvM-server or if you have had a working playable situation .

fingers crossed
18  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / New Era of GvM on NWN-Enhanced Edition on: 24 December 2018, 22:51
Hi Folks,

Here a start trying to explain what will happen with our server in the very near future.
With a fair amount of certainty our old server-version (v1.69) will be replaced with the new server edition (build 8186) within 2 weeks from now.

What will this mean for you:
1. You'll need to have the new NWN-EE edition obtainable from Steam (this week still 70% discount so hurry up  Cheesy)
2. Before logging in you can give yourself a nickname (this will not be used in game itself, but is visible for us for convenience - would be nice to use youre old name if you want to be recognized)
3. If you want youre old toons back in youre new settings ... plze email me with all the info you can give me ... including youre new public CD-key (consists of 8 characters)
greydeth@hotmail.com  
plze pm me too that youve mailed me ... otherwise it can take a while till I check my mail

For the time being a testserver is running almost 24/7 these weeks.
This server will be the real server within 2 weeks from now.
To connect to this one see:
http://www.gondorvsmordor.com/gvm2/forum/index.php?topic=3327.25

Server is now on build 8186
But i just read a recent patch sets the version to 8187
http://www.gondorvsmordor.com/gvm2/forum/index.php?topic=3327.25
Dunno yet what impact this has for playing on our GvM-server version 8186
Maybe we need to update server too ... but we'll soon find out

For now this will be it ...

Hope to see you playing on our "new"server very soon!

19  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 22 December 2018, 10:33
heh, now you see that checking our forum regularly is a necessity  Grin
And 70% discount !!! W000t  :pompom:
(Almost sure this will make my kids pretty happy when they see a gift in steam ;-)

BTW
Test NWNEE GvM-server will be running almost! 24/7 this holiday .... so buckle up and have fun already!
and with Test I mean ... everything that will be done and earned here will go to the soon-to-be real server too .... Test-servervault will also be definite servervault!! (and old servervault will be ported on request)
20  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 21 December 2018, 16:11
Hey b_k ... again thnx for youre proposal and for the info.
But everything will work out just fine ... you'll see.
I've planned to have the new server up and running within 2 weeks ...
probably around new year ... before that everyone can testrun as mentioned above with the new NWN-EE client ... and even request to port servervault already.
More to come soon - this weekend I think.
21  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Reboot time on: 21 December 2018, 15:28
Indeed was down .... now up again  Cheesy
22  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Players Forum / Re: Reboot time on: 20 December 2018, 19:28
restarted  icon_salut

But keep aware that the server will be upgraded soon ... probably before this new year already
http://www.gondorvsmordor.com/gvm2/forum/index.php?topic=3327.msg15704#new occasion14
23  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 19 December 2018, 19:07
Thnx for this option hfodf ... if something goes awry I might knock on your door about this.  icon_thumright
Would be nice to see you playing too on the new GvM-EE server one day.

And just sharing my experience here about this new serverversion:
 ... everything runs just more smoothly! .... loading times r are lot faster and some minor bugs are gone (my cloak for instance now shows itself everywhere ... on old server cloack was quite buggy)
And to be honest it has indeed nice graphical improvements  ... if you really focus on it, that is.
headbang
24  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 17 December 2018, 22:44
W00t after years I finally can use the DM client without crashing the whole server.
Thnx 2 -fire- ... now I shall study how this DM-ing all works in NWNEE

Further:
test NWNEE server is running a lot ... but only when I'm ready working and am home again.
can happen that its lagging cause I use PC also a lot
... but everyone is invited to test ! Cheesy
(see shortcut instructions above - can also ask to import toons for the test if you want)
testserver will continue in final form or at least the servervault will

I shall build the new NWNEE GvM server this Christmas holiday ... meanwhile testserver shall run lots of times ... and our "old faithful server" shall run until the new one is running!
So it takes only a couple of weeks I think  Grin
More info what to expect soon in other thread.

Exciting times people!!
 :pompom:
25  Gondor vs Mordor 1 / GvM1 Future Talk / Re: NWN Enhanced Edition on: 16 December 2018, 17:12
OK OK
story so far ...
it seems it will probably work in the end ...
server seems stable ... client too now ...
Still need a lot more testing from the managing side and player side ...
DM-ing for instance ... -fire- did test it ... I didn't yet ... probably need to modify script for it and I'm still too n00by for just daring that ...

For just the playing testing experience ... I'll open port 5127 instead for the standard 5121 ... and relay it to my PC

So make a shorcut pointing to
"<your-nw-EE-client-Steammap>\bin\win32\nwmain.exe" +connect gvm.publicvm.com:5127
ATTENTION
DONT FORGET the  " ... " between <youre path>\nwmain.exe ... just as I tried to explain above.
In youre path will be something like <neverwinter nights> ... and this has a space in it !! ... computers wont get this ... and will see this as 2 seperate things ....!!
So use of " is necessary.


once in a while I'll let the test server run for a bit .... so players can check and maybe ask in a different forum post for copying their toons in the new testsituation (soon to be real-running-) server
Meanwhile I'll try to find and configure a new server machine (so as long as needed we will have no linux but a windows machine as server)
As soon as the tests are successful AND my new Windows-servermachine is running ... we will have a new era of GVM !!!
