Changing CD keys...
« on: February 18, 2011, 09:27:36 pm »
Is there a way to change CD keys on a CPU without completely reinstalling NWN?

My son used to use my laptop, now he has his own, therefor I want my laptop back to my CD key. We can't play together now cause his CD key is in use when he's on since the same one is on both laptops.

My Thanks,
Merlin34

There is.  If my memory serves me well, you can change cd keys in the main directory of NWN in a file you can open with notepad entitled...nwncdkey...just put in your cd keys, save, and it should be good to go...I think.  :)

Presuming you don't have an altered your installation paths etc, it should be here:

NeverwinerNights\\NWN\\nwncdkey.ini

Open it with notepad and swap out the data. I -believe- that will do the trick, but I'm pretty sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Gah! Please tell me what to first open.

I can't find anything that ends in .ini

Is it in the NWN folder?

Yes.  The path should be...your main drive (or wherever you installed NWN) then NeverwinterNights then NWN then the file nwncdkey.ini.  Or do a search for any file titled nwncdkey and insert your keycodes there

If you have not set the extensions of files to be shown from your Windows explorer's Folder Options, you won't see the .ini extension.
By default this is turned off.
