Can't log in. CD Key in use?

Post  Supreme_Pizza on Fri Nov 30, 2012 7:20 pm

Hi alien

I haven't been playing in a while but I always find my way back to Anph...

Anyway...
When I try to log in it tells me my CD key is already in use on the server.

I don't see how that is possible. I double checked my book. It is correct. I've never given it out to anyone.

I logged in today. I did read some stuff here about the keys. I do have 2 coppies of the game. Should I try to find my other book?

Only reason I'm asking is cause I had some characters with some decent crafting skills.

Thanks

If you were playing more than 180 days ago.. you might need to pm felix about the account you used and characters because they might be gone...

I'm assuming this is a different account because I never seen you by this name before... Smile

Welcome back, hope you get addicted and have fun.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I think it has been over a year. I don't think I have played since we got the new house in Feb.

I've been around Anph since 2002 though. Seen all the different versions.

Edit:

Usually when the characters get wiped the crafting DB doesn't. So you use the same name and all is usually good. I tried that but no luck.

That was why I was asking. rabbit

Did you buy a copy from GoG.com? That's the trouble I'm having now. I need to log in before whoever else has it to add the CD Key they gave me for Multiplayer.

Odd you say that.

Long story short.

I bought the original disk the day of release. This was back when you needed the disk in your computer to play the game. Well a year or so of thrashing around on my desk I started having issues but could get it to work if I tapped my CD tray. You never needed the expansions to play just the original play disk.

A couple years later I bought the platinum edition because it was the same price as the NWN box without the expansions. So I have a 2 full sets of keys. I keep hoping my son will drop WoW and get into NWN.

Anyway, this time instead of installing from disk I simply DL'd the GOG version and plugged in my ten year old key in the nwncdkey.ini

Sorry for the long story but every time I try to keep a long story short I always end up telling the long one. silent

Anyone who purchased the game from Gog.com needs to email them and request a unique cd key for online play.
They are banking on people not playing multiplayer when they sell those so wont supply the keys until you ask. They are obligated to provide you with a unique cdkey.

I have good CD keys.

Let me highlight for clarity.

FYI

If you didn't know. NWN stores your CD keys in nwncdkey.ini client side. @

C:\NeverwinterNights\NWN\nwncdkey.ini

The first key in the file is for the NWN Play Disk.
The second is for Shadows and the third is for Horde.

The first key, your IP address, and/or your login ID can be used as unique personal identifiers for player identification. Specifically as database key values.

Code:
SELECT username FROM users a
INNER JOIN user_data b
    ON a.id = b.user_id
WHERE b.key = 'user'
AND b.value = 'cdkey'

If you have a cd key that is also in use on this server then you still need a new one. I would imagine someone had to have used a generator to get that one. All the same if you get a new key, to which you are entitled, your problem is solved.

I had this problem for awhile, turned out I'd forgotten I'd lent a friend a copy of the game. =)

The GoG.com guide to changing your CD Key involves downloading a patch and running it after you've changed your nwncdkey.ini file.

So it may be worth logging in to GoG.com in your account, download the patch and update the game with your original nwn cd keys.
