Neversummer 4 is an online persistent world using the Neverwinter Nights engine, and requires a copy of Neverwinter Nights Diamond to play. NWN can be purchased for under 30 bucks at Amazon.com http://amzn.com/B000B8K7RC
Install it and update to 1.69 patch. It is supposed to be on the cd, but you may have to search for the patch if it wont update automatically. Ask on these forums if you need help.
Launch the game and click on multiplayer - join internet game.
Click create a new account if you dont have one and enter a username, email and password.
Our servers are listed in Gamespy under the PW-Action category Servername Neversumer4.
A handy trick that several players and DMs use is to create a shortcut on your desktop that links directly to the Neversummer server. This allows you to bypass loading screens and Gamespy entirely. To do this, simply create a new shortcut and point it to:
- C:\NeverwinterNights\Nwn\nwmain.exe +connect ns4beta1.servegame.com:5121 (For Players)
- C:\NeverwinterNights\Nwn\nwmain.exe -dmc +connect ns4beta1.servegame.com:5121 +password <pass> (For DMs)
Replace c:\nwn with the path to your Neverwinter Nights installation directory if it differs; the one above is for the standard installation. DMs should replace <pass> with the appropriate DM password, or leave it blank if you want NWN to prompt you for it. Note that this method doesn't run certain parts of the game's frontend, so if you cancel out NWN will close instead of going to the gamespy or main menu screens.
