- Markshire PCs: Grottle, Gruzk, Ashimar
I have to install a new hard drive. The hard drive failed in the midst of all the other BS that occurred with the computer. You should have heard it … it was like a fingernails on chalkboard constant whine. Still hurts my ears to think of that noise.
The new hard drive is acquired, just need to install Windows on it and get the stand-alone server back on it.
Next up: recovery of the old Hard Drive.
I imagine that you’ve just had your worst nightmares about that statement and sadly you are partially correct.
After some fitful starts/stops I have managed to save all of the PCs except two and those two are insignificant.
Sadly, all of the databases are hosed.
This means that Crafting, Death Counts and Persistent Chests will be reset to 0. There are some other minor issues with the DBs but those are behind the scenes.
1.68 or 1.69, that is the Question
When I do put this server back together and back up we might be updated to 1.69. This is a huge MIGHT BE. There are some serious updates from 1.68 to 1.69 and if the process fubars a lot of stuff I won’t bother.
For those of you who are updated or want to update to play elsewhere, I suggest that you dupe your NWN folder (possibly even onto a new drive) and update from within one of those folders. Then you’ll have both 1.68 and 1.69 on your machine.
Ping me if you have issues with that.
I’ll try to update you. Hoping to get the HD formatted and Windows installed on it over the next couple of days.
