Missing CD-Keys
« on: July 07, 2010, 06:13:20 PM »
I had a total hard driver failure, so I lost everything I had. Problem has been solved. Now I'm on the worst phase of the process, reinstalling everything...

Problem is I can't find my old papers with the CD-Keys... I'm thirsty for playing NWN again, I miss the goddamn great RP that I fail to find, any at all, on D&D Online(MMORPG).
Does anybody know if I try to contact bioware and show them pictures of the 8 original CDs of NWN1 that I own, would make them give me new CD-Keys? The game is so cheap nowdays that I wouldn't mind in buying the platinum DVD, but it is gone, can't find it anywhere on my country or on some few online shops that I looked at... just SUCK.

I own two NWN(3CDs each), and both expansions(2CDs).

Or else, if somebody happens to be able to buy the game and mail it to me, I'd be more than happy in paying for the whole costs and a little extra for the trouble.

Bioware actually has a feature where you can link your keys to your account for just this kind of things. Though if you haven't I wouldn't get my hopes up :(

I did have one of my accounts linked but I'm not sure which one, 'cause I had a few in the past years, mostly because some servers don't allow deletions....

I may have got some CD-Keys from somebody, but I need to contact a server admin cause there is a little issue with them. I'll try to contact somebody but if an admin see this please, message me!

Another thing that came to my mind whilst on the bus... Does the server store CD-Keys? Would it be possible to recover my CD-Keys from the server database?

No, servers only have access to your public cd-key.

Yeah.

We can't.

I believe bioware has a copy of your CD keys, not sure if that is if you registered or not though. So maybe check the Bioware forums.

If you've played NWN multiplayer then you should be able to go to the Bioware website. Go to the NWN section. Log in with the same account name and password as you use for NWN.

Then you should be able to look up your CD keys if you registered them (which you probably did when you originaly installed the game).
