For players sharing a router!

Unread post by Administrator »

If two or more people are playing through the same router, then you have to change the client port in your "My Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2\nwn2player.ini" file.

Computer #1 would be set to: Client Port=5120
Computer #2 would be set to: Client Port=5121
Computer #3 would be set to: Client Port=5122

and so on and so forth.

This is a known bug dating back to NWN1. It will cause all kinds of problems if you do not have it setup correctly.

This is a reminder for the newer players.

Please follow these instructions if you share an internet connection with another player!

I want to bump this thread as a reminder that those players sharing a router with someone else have to make a few adjustments to their settings in order to play here without bugging other people out. Thank you for your efforts in doing this!

Just a friendly reminder that if you are sharing an Internet connection with another player in the same household, and you are both playing the game at the same time, you have to follow the steps in the first post of this thread to properly configure your router.

Failure to do so will cause issues for your play experience and the play experience of others.
