"CD Key in Use" - Bought NWN Diamond off GoG. Pirates ahoy.
« on: September 11, 2011, 10:46:35 PM »
Hello all.

I'm new to your server and am having a great time. However, I tried to log in today, and someone is using the CD key I paid good money for.

Either GoG are handing out the same CD key to different people, or we've got someone who's using a keygen.

My primary character is Wyatt Mann, though I've an alt called 'Blight', and one other alt with an Irish name that I cannot for the life of me remember how to spell at this moment in time.

Is there any chance you guys could do a bit of diagnostic work to figure out who's doing a number on me, and whether it's deliberate?

This is pretty horrible I have to say.

For the record, if this isn't a bug they logged off about 1 or 2 minutes ago - 3 at most.

If that helps. I can get in now.

They sell everyone the core game with the same key. To get unique key, you have to go back to GOG and under the help options for NWN specifically, is request unique CD Key. It takes 1-2 days for them to email you unique keys.

Yeah, pretty sure I told there was a chance you were a default key the other day, hon. Just message them about it and it''ll cleared up in a few hours or so.

It's actually one of the default help options. In the drop down menu there's a 'request unique CD key' option.

Out of curiosity where are you from and what languages do you speak?

I'm actually American, so English is my first language. I was just waking up when I posted that message. I know VERY LITTLE (I can't press how little I know) Korean.

For some reason or another, it just does.

Thankyou my friend. That's a huge help - I've sent the email to them.

Because making money trumps providing a service for Bioware these days. :P
