NWN Hak Update Open Test - 2_23
« on: April 04, 2020, 02:15:45 PM »
Greetings fellow mist dwellers!

With the arrival of patch 8193.9 (1.80), we've updated our haks to both add new content and align ourselves with the changes. Once again, we'll need your help testing it before releasing it on the main server. Some of the changes are behind the scenes, others you will get to appreciate from day 1. You can find a compilation of all the changes here: https://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=53903.0

Before fully implementing it on the main server, we really could use some help testing. We've put up a test server using the same IP as our main server, but using port 5124 instead (so direct connect to 46.4.59.55:5124).

In addition to updating the game, to be able to enter the test server, you need to download and install this package: Download (extract it to your Documents \ Neverwinter Nights directory, it will override existing files, but should still be compatible with the main server). If you haven't downloaded it yet (ie: if you only use NWSync), you will need to download CEP 2.65 here as well and extract the files to the proper folder.

If you use Steam you’ll need to unsubscribe from the POTM workshop to test the hak; you can subscribe to the CEP 2.65 one though.

Once we're satisfied with testing, we will release it to the main server and patch it, hopefully in the coming days.

We'd appreciate if you could give it a try and report back any bugs or other issues on the forums. Please pre-fix any topic you make pertaining to the hak test with "Hak-test". The test server runs a copy of the current server vault that is about one month old.  Don't hesitate experimenting - whatever happens on the test server will not affect the main server and your character there.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

-Updated the hak. Added new heads for humans, elves, half-orcs and gnomes. Fixed most issues reported so far and updated the appearance of the Wolf companion.

I've uploaded a new version of the hak on the test server. Aside from adding the Voodan, I've also changed the perception range of monsters and range of some long spells to fix a bug people were sometimes exploiting to kill monsters. It may cause unintended consequences so I'd appreciate feedback; the easiest way to test is to log on the test server and fight in dungeons.

You can download the new version of the hak here . Just extract it in your Documents\Neverwinter Nights folder.

You'll also need CEP 2.65 (link in the original post) to access the test server.
