So hi! I'm new to the site and was looking over the forum and thought I'd give the server a shot. I seem to be having problems downloading the haks though. When I try accessing them from nwn vault it seems to link me to a page with a bunch of wing dings and no download starts when I click on the respective hak links. Anyone know anything about this?

Thanks!

Hi and welcome....

EGADS! You're right - most of the NWN Vault seems to be broken. Not just our files. I suspect foul play at the hands of a bitter Atari, Corp - who feels that 10 years of game life is way too long. Fie! I was told when I bought software that it was mine forever and I could download whatever I purchased, ad infinitum...

So it appears that the NWN master server will never return - people will no longer be able to find copies of NWN and we are out flappin' in cowboy land.

No worries - I bought the game and I will play it as I choose, ad infinitum. /endrant

That said, I am uploading the haks in .zip format to 4shared (a special one for the community) - You will be able to Download 3 zips - and that should do it. You'll need a decompression utility like www.winzip.com or www.winrar.com. i recommend winzip as that is the compression used.

The files wil be downloadable on www.4shared.com - it may take awhile (A tad less if you already have CEP 2.3 installed) but at least they'll all be in one spot.

THANK YOU for pointing it out. See you in-game, soon.

Details on Hak download to follow....

Only 11 hours of upload left.

1. Cool to have an altenative download location! Thanks EStar!

2. I did some testing and it seems NOT to be an issue with the NWN-vault, but more an issue with a browser and the fileformat .7z AND .rar:
I am curently using Firefox and yes, if I Left-click the dlcr_xyz.7z-flile, Firefox opens another window with lots of cryptic things showing (probybly tries to display the archive as a webpage).

BUT, if I RIGHT-click it and choose "save file" (or something liek this: I have it in german here and the function differs from browser to browser, but there is a choice to download/save it), the download-window opens. I successfully saved it and checked the content - it was ok!

I did not have this issue with .zip-files (eg. our creature-haks). I could LEFT-click them in Firefox and download them. And I also tested it with a (old) version of the IExplorer (which I don't use, so it's not updated) and here, the download also worked for .7z-files (left-click). So I guess, it's a browser-issue.

I will do some more tests and if it works via right-click, I'll (additionally) repost the vault links.
