CD Key not authorized?
« on: August 15, 2009, 12:24:49 AM »
I downloaded all the required files and found the server under gamespy with no problem.

When I attempt to connect I get a "CD Key not Authorized" message.

What am I doing wrong here?  This is my first attempt at multiplayer NWN so I'm obviously quite lost.  Thanks in advance for the help!

It is indeed.  Had to dig hard to find a copy of NWN as I threw my original copy away.  Eventually found one in a Gamestop.   Is this message one that's usually associated with bad keys, then?  Because if you've ever bought a PC game from gamestop they actually open the box and take the cd's out and put them in a drawer behind the counter (for anti-theft reasons).  The books and such were in the box still, but it was obviously already open.  :(

It may have been pre-owned, which would mean the keys would already be registered to someone else.

did you create a username and password/account in the game to log in with?

have you been able to connect to any servers at all?

when you say gamespy, do you mean gamespy from within NWN or gamespy arcade or similar?

yeah it isn't likely cd key theft there is something wrong with PotM and its giving odd messages
There is a current topic on the issue 'Problems Logging in to the Server' and as you can see it is a myriad of troubles for pretty much everyone, this one included =)
