Bypassing the nwn master server

Post  Guest on Mon Sep 26, 2011 11:15 pm

Quite simply all these instructions get you to do is save you the seconds it takes for your logon to realise there's no master server...

I borrowed this from another forum I frequent, and they stole it from biowares forums... Nonetheless you need these following things to do this:

-Administrators permission
-Notepad or equivalent text editor
-No fear of editing files the system uses! (Linux users, these instructions are primarily for Windows users, and if you use them for your own ends, I assume you already have accomplished this point...)

Now, open up your text editor (or Notepad) by running it as Administrator (right-click -> Run as Administrator) and complete any User Accounts Authentication windows that pop up by clicking "yes" (should they appear)...

Then open a file by navigating through the murky realm of the Windows File System (C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/etc is the directory), the file is called "Hosts" it has no .txt or other file Extension, so follow this mundane recommendation should you not see it: change the files you are looking for to "all files".

Then copy the following into the file you open on the last line:

0.0.0.0 nwmaster.bioware.com
0.0.0.0 nwnauth.kr.infogrames.com
0.0.0.0 66.244.193.142
0.0.0.0 203.239.47.115

Save it, et voila, you have successfully told windows to ignore looking for the nwn master server.

Likewise, should you hear the server is alive, you should go through the same instructions, delete what you added from here then save it...

I hope my "borrowed" tip helps you all...
