Connection to the server.
« on: December 23, 2019, 02:15:58 PM »
I want to try playing on this server, but I can not connect to the server. I bought game in Steam, downloaded the CEP and Ravenloft POTM main download from steam workshop, and pasted it in "Neverwinter Nights" folder in my "Documents" folder. I see in the game a lot of servers including Ravenloft POTM Action server, but don't see the main server. When I try to make a direct connection to 46.4.59.55:5123, I get next message: "Connection to server has failed. Connection error: server is not responding". What am I doing wrong? Please, help me with this problem.

If you see the Action server, I think that means your NWN version is the most recent one; but we're using the oldstable version for the "classic" server.

To change, go to Steam, your NWN game entry, right-click to select Properties; then go to the BETAS tab. From there, select "oldstable" in the drop down.

You'll revert back to that version and when you re-connect, you should be able to see the "classic" server.

Youll need to select a character origin/background (from your rest menu I think? Or the self crafting menu, one of the two)
