Pick your OS and Multiplayer CD Key from the drop down and request the 3 cd keys.

The default GoG keys (I think some other digital releases use them too) are soft-banned. Remind me to throw in more explanatory text sometime :)

As long as cdkey changes are rare, it's not that big of a deal to change on our end, details elsewhere.

Nwncx info at viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1003673 It links to community auth server, has hooks for things other places use but we don't as yet (hak auth, new races/classes at character creation, tons of visual stuff, bunch of other things I don't remember), and might not because so far windows only. The hosts file changes differ by OS and you also need to block the gamespy chat server for nwn as well now, the dns to block is peerchat.gamespy.com and there's more info in the sticky about excessive timeout wait in the announcements forum.

There's probably a few other must haves to link, like changing the horrible default cloak settings or voice/portrait selection and such.
