So i did my basic home work and looked at the FAQ and went over it twice to make shore i knew the basic info about NWN EE but some of what i was looking for isn't 100% answered their.
So here is one more post from someone that would like to join the NWN EE party that's going on seeing as I imho consider Classic NWN to be the best D&D video game ever made to date and nothing tops it, at lest on the game play topic that is and 90% opensource code / game wise in regards to what on can do with the tool-set and the game in general.
Grafix are dark age lol. Ya I know, old game O'well.
Ps: yes iv bin a Dev for the game/some servers in the past and at one point i took the time in years to make my own server from the ground up at one point “hosted it ½ year” but then gave it up at one point cus it was just too much work to deal with all the time so after years of working on it I just gave up on the project.
Ps: most mmo aka "World of noob craft" games and their wana be clones imho are a joke and i can't even bring my self to play that kind of thing though iv tried a few times in the past and it just doesn't do it for me....
10 years of grinding to make one high level toon too doesn't do a lot for me and thats seems to be the case for one too meany mmo's out their that's just a quick turn off.
Now on to the questions that sadly i'm probably not going to like and all ready know the answers to but never the less I guess ill just go for it and ask to see what happens
Probably get depressed at the answers
First off i'm a die hard winXP user and atm i'm working on atm pimping out a win98se retro gamer system for someone “ with all the bad ass parts from back in the day of course”
For a price of corse, you did know a full 486 cpu DX 2/66mgz cpu gamer system tower wise on Ebay is like $$$.
Emulation is just not the same thing for true die hard retro gamer's.
MY self i tend to live in the past when it comes to Os and PC hardware / games in general and for the most part & imho win10 is SKY-NET and is pure EVIL 666
After version WIN7 of windows “dies” i'm sorry but i'm OpenSorce code only and if i'm not allowed to know what your doing on my system then your not allowed to be part of my life as well in any case half of my working servers/systems/computers/laptops atm are all linux/unix in any case so you know all the same to me but the WIN10 NSA SKY-NET EDITION can go die as far as i'm considered.
SO winXP is old and out on the topic of NWN EE
OK fine i knew i had to get with the win7 plain at some point seeing as last i checked something like 50~60% of the hole world now is win7 “ball part number”
SO win7 is the new winXP.
Btw douse the new NWN EE use more then one cpu core for the game or not, just asking cus my main dedicated game system ill make for win7 I need to know if I should be the high mgz twin core in their or the slower quad core in mgz “per core”
Problem with win7 is you just can't lock it down like you can in win98 or win2000/XP.
In my world all network ports have to be disabled and a netstat command at the command prompt if I see even a single port open with out my permission ill format the OS gone if needed and or use and mod/hack/toolz to the max to fix the leak and last I looked in to it win7 is a huge pos on this topic and that's just for starters when it comes to cyber security lock-downs.
Its just god the OS gets on my bad side and fast but i guess i'm going to have to learn how to work the thing, god i'm probably going to need pills to help my nerves some when dealing with that os and plz don't get me ever started on the win8 or win10 topic as i tend to become unpleasant to be around when that topic douse the rounds.
So here's the thing, when you buy the game in question "NWN EE" do you get the full real installers in *.ISO so i can burn full DVD copy's of the installer ?
Unlimited installs as needed.
Online activation of any kind not permitted to play the game.
IF not problem at my end.
2nd douse everything work on lan network "server/clients" with no internet of any kind, if not problem or I can just use the old real NWN for that i guess but it be nice to have that in NWN EE as well.
3rd i don't like or use steam, all they do is data mine you soul/computer all day long and in my world privacy is king and no data mining of any kind is allowed and/or acceptable and that's all steam douse all day long so problem on this topic, the only thing the game client should be connecting to is to check Cd ~ keys / accounts if and when needed on the network/internet and 2nd update the player/server list and that's it, any other kind of data mining should be forbidden.
Last but not lest the old NWN did not encrypt player to player chat “and maybe game play network code” and more protections need to be put in place to stop that kind of problem as well blocking server admins from being able to log and see players Tells in game.
As you know anything you say on the net/old nwn in chat everyone gets to log a copy if they wanted to and with the right hacks and mods “server side” sadly the same thing happens and everything can be logged on the admin server in regards to tells or whatever they want.
Imho we need at lest 256bit encryption for all chat and Tells in regards to privacy or at the very lest only for tells.
Privacy needs to be protected at all costs and no admin server side should ever be allowed to know whats said in tells.
SO that's about it for the questions for now and lets see what happens, tnx in advance for anyone time if they decide to help out a old nwn server admin/dev/player to get back in the game, thing is from what I understand the new NWN EE getting player base and that's what makes the game, sadly the old nwn has like no players on most servers
lots of servers just no players
Need player base if not whats the point and the game is dead online more or less.....
