authorization server down

Post by Hammer » 06 Jul 2011, 22:51

looks like it might be for good.

found this tidbit on bgtscc1 forums about avoiding the wait for the timeout:

Connecting to master server isn't required to play NWN2 online. If you don't want to wait 2 minutes for timeout to occur, you can simply add these lines to your "hosts" file:

0.0.0.0 nw2master.bioware.com
0.0.0.0 nwn2.master.gamespy.com

if you do not know where the hosts file is, it should be in your windows/system32/drivers/etc folder. just tested it and while you still get the dialog box, it pops up immediately. makes things faster.

Good to know, thanks. I'll be sure to add that to my hosts file. Very annoying.
