The instruction in the email tell you to install the "premium modules re-installer" after replacing the CD KEY. After doing this the CD key got reset back to the old one (at least in my install), which I didnt notice until now.

Anyone having problems after getting their unique key, should try replacing the key again, solved my problems.

gasbandit: My friend and I have managed to get multiplayer kinda working by blocking nwmaster.bioware.com in our hosts file (setting the address to 127.0.0.1) or if you have other software for blocking addresses, try blocking that one. It won't let you on servers that aren't blocking it, but at least one of you can host and the others join that person.

MightyKhan: I am very interested in setting up something like that.
I have to block the authentication server using a firewall and then one computer hosts a LAN game and the other simply joins?
Pretty much. Both computers need to be blocking the master server in their firewalls, or if your router lets you do such things, you could just block it at the router if you're all behind that router.

Odd thing was it worked when one of us hosted but not the other, and I don't know why. So if it doesn't work when one person hosts, try the other person hosting.

I also think it might not work if you both are still using identical keys - we tried this when I had already gotten my key but my friend had not. Maybe (cough) come up with a different key somewhere for one of you, or wait until at least one of you gets new keys.

But, on a lighter note, my friend's key finally got here today (took 6 days total) so we don't have to fool with this rigamarole any more :P we can just play normally.

Oddly enough, it was me! And I was the one with the "real" CD key! If I hosted, it told my friend "CD key already in use", even with us blocking the master server. But if my friend hosted, I connected with no problem.
This is ridicilous..

It takes over 9 days to deliver a CD-key by mail, while others had it days ago? and now my account is banned due to trying to log in with the crappy over-used standard CD-key GOG.com supplied? erm.. what?

This is really starting to annoy me, so much for a gift from a friend.. can't even use it to play with him.
Temporary ban, luckily.
It's still ridicilous I get banned for trying to use my own legit bought CD-key though...

...wait for a CD key....
I'll be canceling the charge through my credit card company if I don't have a key by monday. It is completely irresponsible of them to sell me a game without a cd key.
if i don't have my cd key a want back my money, i buy this game only for cd key..
Yeah, I've sent in for a key twice now, since Wednesday, and nothing.
Me too, it's been 4 days and no response, no CD key.
10 Days, no CD key.

I got -sort of- a response, but it solved nothing.


GOG can do it, I'm sure they can.
It'll all be over soon.
It took 6 days, but my friend and I got our keys. Those above me fuming, I felt your pain, but really take a step back and look at it this way - did you really wait seven years to buy NWN... only to throw a tantrum and cancel the sale (which is a 93% discount from the price it would have been had you bought the games and the expansions at launch), over a wait of a further week?

If you really CAN'T WAIT to play multiplayer, see my earlier post in this thread about blocking nwmaster.bioware.com.

Yes, I agree it's very bad-looking for GOG to not have a quicker turn around on keys, but really the blame lies more with bioware than with GOG for making the game "phone home" to bioware servers in the first place, especially back in an era when lan play was common and years before Half Life 2, Spore, Bioshock and other such titles tried to force DRM to become something every gamer would just have to put up with. The real villain here is Bioware (surprise surprise that Mass Effect also has this problem), or perhaps to a greater degree, their publisher Infogrames/Atari. It is, after all, usually the publishers of games that insist on archaic copyright protections such as CD keys, (most cases of) DRM, and other such nuisances which irritate paying customers for years on end, and inconvenience pirates for all of a few days before they torrent a crack or keygen.

gasbandit: I felt your pain, but really take a step back
I agree, and pretty much wrote such in my installation guide for part of the GOG section:

"There are a few downsides to the digital distribution, but time and patience will trump these issues."

I'm also still waiting for my key...but I sent the request in on Friday. I'm anticipating 3-5 business days.
ehmm.. I've waited for over 10 days AND I'm from europe, which is odd.. seeing it says US deliveries might take longer. (Yet I see most US people post that they got it in 6 days? ehm.. )

And it has nothing to do with wether this is a new game or not, it's just not the way to serve your customers. We do pay, wether that would be 10 bucks or 60 (no clue where you got the 93% from?) and at least some form of response or main page newspost would be appreciated.
Hopefully I'll get my key soon then, it really sucks to have a few boring weeks perfect to try the game in.. and then have the game arrive nearly 2 weeks later, meh (I mean the multiplayer key, not the game.. but seeing I won't bother with singleplayer.)
hmm.. Just a thought.. but..

I've gotten the game as a gift from someone, would that possibly cause me to have a bigger delay than others? Seems nonsense to me.. but I can't think of anything else that would make american customers get the key a lot faster than me.

I can buy NWN Diamond Edition from another site at the same price, wait a week to have it to my home and have my code. I have download a original copy from this site and i don't have to wait for have a cd key.
At now i have download a pirate copy of NWN diamond edition, because, without an Original and UNIQUE CD key this is only a ILLEGAL and pirate copy of a game.
My CD key MUST be with downloaded files and not with another request.
I'll make every day a new request for some day, if i don't have my Original and UNIQUE cd key
i'll contact authority.
