For players sharing a router!

Unread post by Administrator » Sat Mar 28, 2009 6:44 pm

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!
