Basic steps to get onto the server:
- purchase and install nwn:EE from steam
- install CEP from steam workshop / or select Steam/Community/Workshop and search for: Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition then for CEP
TIP: Also search for Cagui - for colored icons ... nice add-on!!
NOTE: Subscribe means install and is a download;-)
ATTENTION!
Steam Workshop "subscribings/installs/downloads" from CEP are placed in:
<steam-install-place>\steamapps\workshop\content\704450\1312882397
So if stuff is not working .... this is the Solution:
Modify nwn.ini - In C:\Users\<youre-name>\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\nwn.ini
change under [Alias] the HAK and TLK references to the right place!
So next to HAK should stand: <steam-install-place>\steamapps\workshop\content\704450\1312882397\hak
And for the TALK files it should be: <steam-install-place>\steamapps\workshop\content\704450\1312882397\tlk

- launch the game and join multiplayer server (for easy finding, add a filter for servers running 'lotr' module, then select the GvM server)
- if you are requested to pick a name, you can choose any name you want, but it would be convenient to stick with the name you used in the past on the old server

Porting toons from old server
- create at least one toon on the new server, to ensure the servervault has an entry for your public key
- calculate your public key by executing the following steps:

Quote
1. Find your private CD Key (cdkey.ini file, stored under "Documents/Neverwinter Nights", the part after YourKey= )

2. Take the first 8 even numbered digits. That is, take the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, 12th, 14th, and 16th character (either number or letter) from the CD key. For example,

If your key is:
12345-ABCDE-12345-ABCDE-12345-ABCDE

What you want:
12345-ABCDE-12345-ABCDE-12345-ABCDE

Public CD Key is:
24ACE24A

- send and e-mail (greydeth@hotmail.com) and pm to GreyDeth that contains your calculated public key and your old player name(s)/login name(s), used on the old server.

As an alternative to calculating your public key manually, I've created a script to do it for you. It will require you to copy/paste the first four blocks of your private key (don't copy/paste your whole private key, because you want it to remain secret, although the script will work if you do)

Copy/paste below code here and fill in the first four blocks of your private key and then hit 'run'

Code:
//replace the string 12345-ABCDE-12345-ABCDE by the first four
//blocks of your private key and run the program
val cdkey_first_four_blocks = "12345-ABCDE-12345-ABCDE"

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
println("First four blocks of your private key: $cdkey_first_four_blocks")
    
    val cdkey_stripped = cdkey_first_four_blocks.filter({it != '-'})
    println("Stripped key: $cdkey_stripped")
    
    val public_key_builder = StringBuilder()
    for (i in 1..16 step 2) {
        public_key_builder.append(cdkey_stripped.elementAt(i))
    }
    println("Your calculated public key: ${public_key_builder.toString()}")
}

I've downloaded the enhance pack from steam, subscribed to CEP and see a list of servers but not GVM Sad

Ravensloft is at the top and i can log in. Reading down i see steam\workshop folder mentioned i can't see that in the steam installation folder or the nwn one...

Any suggestions?

Hey Radagast! Guess we will have to wait and see when the server comes back up. If you followed the steps from Bad Karma it should work

Hmmm ... PC with server on it ... is broken .... is trying to fix itself right now ... am afraid the harddrive is broken ... no problem though, I have enough recent backups ... so no data will be lost ... but repair might cost a day or 2 if the fix whats happening now will fail.

In short ... server will be up again soon ...
worst case scenario: Tuesday up and running again ....
Keep you all posted

Great news ... its up again!
see:

Glad to see Radagast and Zoltar here again too !!
Welcome back guys!  hello2

Actually the yellow stuff is my contribution.
But yeah ... the yellow instructions are the key for HAK files trouble ... cant get it clearer than that, sorry.
just read line by line, word for word and look on youre hard disk for the needed file and maps

for instance nwn.ini file can be found here: C:\Users\<youre-name>\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\nwn.ini
use wordpad or so to read and edit this file
Steam is installed somewhere on youre hard drive ... so <steam-install-place> can be D:\Steam? or C:\Program Files\Steam? or C:\games\Steam? or D:\Games\Steam ... or ... or ...
... in other words ...  just follow the yellow instructions.
 ... hope you take deep breaths, read slowly and just keep calm .. that will help
Good luck

Just to add: I would only try the yellow stuff of just following the white stuff is not working on your machine. I think if you start completely fresh (meaning: no install of old non-EE nwn, let's say a really new machine), you should be able to get up and running by just doing the white steps. (at least: it worked for me)

I only have EE installed right now. Had to do a 'back to factory' reset. Do I need NWN old version (Platinum Edition) installed? Do I need old CEP? Do I need to download server specific file(s)?

Nothing is mentioned about old versions in the install-instructions ... so no ... no need for that.
Server specific ... yes: also in instructions ->  
"install CEP from steam workshop / or select Steam/Community/Workshop and search for: Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition then for CEP"

Hope you will figure this out ... cause it seems we cannot really help you with more explanation
Only 1 tip: read the instructions thoroughly ... word for word, line by line if you have to.
Good luck!

I would even say that having old nwn installed makes it more likely that things don't work. Because you will get confused with all the locations where nwn data will be on your drive.

The old nwn is dead, long live nwn EE ;-)

Finally figured out what I had to do. Simple cut and replace. I knew I'd get it eventually and finally I did. Thanks you all for the help.
