Hey guys.

I used to play on GvM back in 2009/2010, and recently decided to dust off my copy of NWN again (read: buy the Diamond edition off of GOG, cause the physical discs disappeared into the ether).

Looking through the list of servers with the NWN Server Browser, I've seen that the most players online for the last 2 days was 1, and usually it was 0. Is the server dead?

Hey Khaine,

Welcome back!
Great to see on golden oldie player return to this server  hello2
Well .... dead ... kinda yes ... but it comes and goes ... I for instance just host the server, but almost never play anymore.
Mostly because I'm busy with real life and playing other games than GvM ... I still have plans to return to this server as a regular player though.
But a couple of months before ... server was fairly visited and busy, think at one day there were at least 10 people online (I know, I know, in the early days this was peanuts, but nowadays its great)  ... so I think there are still quite a lot of players who really want to play but for some reasons do that at irregular times.

Bottom-line ... no server is not really dead ... not yet anywayz  Grin

Hope to see you play again!

@Khaine: i did the same about 2 months ago. Started playing after years and years. I had a friend of mine also join again so we mostly play with the 2 of us. I've teamed with other players only 2 times. Other than that it was just me on the server.

However, it was still nice to explore gvm again. Some stuff changed, some stuff i just forgot. Bottom line: i'm enjoying myself.

Hi Khaine

I remember you well - welcome back!

Regarding the server, yes it's pretty quiet these days. I was in the middle of trying to push a fairly large update out late this summer to give some of those die-hard vets who still play something new to explore, but real life in the last 6 weeks has really changed so I am a bit behind in that regard - I do hope to complete it though before too long.

Realistically it may be the last large update I will push through just because of time and the ever quieter nature of the server.

If 2010 was that last time you played there are probably quite a lot of other changes that will be new and I do have a backup of the server vault when we moved from Turril's hosting to Grey's if you can remember your old account names.

BTW - if you have a GoC version - just make sure you request multiplayer CD keys - they tend to hand that game out with some generic CD keys (which then means a load of players are using the same key at once which can screw things up) - but I read that you can just request new unique multiplayer keys if you don't have yours from your original CDs.

I'll probably pop on every now and then to check out the new content.

@-firecracker-  Yeah, 2010 was the last time I played NWN. I'm pretty sure the account name I had was Daccidflick. I decided to make a new account, in part because I couldn't remember my old password, and partially because looking back, it was a pretty juvenile name to use, heh.

Just a tip: i wouldn't opt for account restore. I am still happy with my choice not to do it. It makes you appreciate nice drop more. And you need to put in some work to be able to farm higher lvl areas again.

Example: nice to be high enough lvl for simple armor+5 or ring of deflection+5... But where to loot them without dying every 10mins??? Good fun solving those puzzles!

I've found your account in the vault backup - let me know if you want it restored or if you plan to start from scratch Smiley

Yes I bet starting from scratch is a nice way to get back into the mod, especially if you've been away for so many years.

Wow hfodf !!  Worship

Great to see you back 2 !!
 ... and? do you think "youre GvM child" is evolved a bit in a positive way since you last real "hunting fun"?

Really hope you will enjoy playing GvM again ....

(and maybe if you R getting "the programming itch" again one day, you can help me out why the whole server keeps crashing when I try to log in as a DM  Tongue )

I think I started playing on this server back in 2004?  The last 4 or 5 years I just pop on here and there.  It is a lot slower than it used to be, but it is an awesome feeling to run around the old server and playing with some of the OG players.  I'm trying to get back on myself, but my game keeps crashing during area transition.  I have tired a few things, nothing working yet.... thinking of reinstalling and then giving it a run.  BTW Welcome Back!

Yesterday, for me in the first time since 2008 we had two parties. A Mordor party of 3 and a Gondor party of 5. That was impressive!

One dude even got pvp killed for logging into some area were some gondors were playing.


edit: @above: try reinstalling CEP, try running the game in windowed (not fullscreen) mode. (Google.)

like smaug...

Yeah... that's only like, one of the hardest bosses in the game I think ;-)

Single-player type bosses would include:
- winning osgiliath back from the other party by killing the monk/summoner
- Lurz in Isenguard warg pens (actually the entirety of Isenguard would be a nice place to play)
- Guys in the tombs at Edoras
- Spirit lair/Shelob's lair quests
- quite some guys in moria
- (well geared) the bosses in the Fallen area

But sure, you're right, you cannot just kill Saruman/Elrond/Aragorn/etc by yourself. Though I personally would hate it if that got changed: I like the team playing part. Easy for me to say because four of my friends are playing as well, but finding just one more partner to team up with already greatly increases the areas you can farm/bosses you can kill.

Let us just team up together some day ;-)

Well window mode seemed to fix it, kinda sucks really would prefer full screen, but window mode is better than no mode. Now off to look some stuff up for a build and at some point play.
