Networking Question

Postby archerknight » Sat Jan 11, 2003 6:56 pm

I have some questions from someone more computer adept than myself. That means just about anyone.

I'd like to network my home PCs some I can play nwn with my kids, will I need another play disc or will it work with just one in one of the PCs.

If I do need 2 can the play disc be copied or will I have to buy another game.

Thanks in advance for the help.

You need 2 disks to play NwN on 2 computers.

You need two different key codes, but you can use the same disk to boot from. Just take it out when one game loads up. Never gave me any trouble.
Don't think you know all the answers.

Thanks to both of you.

To prove my first statement: What's a key code?

A key-kode comes with the game when you buy it. It is on the backside of your manual.
It is the code you enter when installing your game to prove that you own a legal copy of the game.

You need to buy a second copy of the game.
Borrowing anothers keycode is not legal because that somebody else is using it.

Each keycode is given in license with one specific game, and only permitted to use with that specific copy of the game.
Anything else is borderlining to piracy - something that is not permitted on Gamebanshee.
