This details my notes in making the game multiplayer. I am pretty certain that I bought a second copy to make this happen. I know I bought a second CD/DVD copy. I have some notes on logging in, and some links which were once helpful but have now gone away.
Logging into a Game
The manual, (Page 28) states that the login dialog is based upon the Bioware Community login. This has an associated e-mail account. The login dialog when playing NWN as a multiplayer game asks you to authenticate your self using the community login. The Login/@assword pair are case sensitive at this point in time.
Sorcerers Place have a resource on Multiplayer here…. I have not yet read it. It looks very dated and not very technical.
The google query “nwn server linux” which looks pretty good, but unfortunately uses screen. We’ll have to see; screen works on the tty and they recommend using ssh, it could work as I want it to.
