So Im trying to play this multiplayer with someone but Im running into two problems.
Firstly, I have Nwn2 on its own, and my friend has Nwn2 Platinum - this can't be installed without the expansions. Does this mean its impossible to play the Nwn2 campaign?
Secondly, we can't even connect to each other with or without Hamachi. It keeps saying unable to connect due to being blocked or firewall. We tried Hamachi when we saw this, but we can't even see it as a lan game so somethings going wrong there too.

we have had the same problem with hamachi for nwn 1, my friend has found a workaround, I've asked him to post it here. Maybe he will. ;)
i will, just let me finish my work:) (a few hours)
Im not sure the same solution works for NWN2, but i will figure out something.
1.open Notepad as an administrator
2.open the "hosts" file from the following path:
C driver -> Windows -> system32 -> drivers -> etc
change the text documents to all files and there you can see it
3. there are two line in the last part of the text. Something like
now type an other localhost name in the next line and use those two as a show-piece. So now there are these lines there:
4.save it and you can exit
the game should work this way on hamachi, but if you want to play on a bioware server again, you have to delete the added line from the hosts file.
Of course you have to play with the same game version and be sure to open all the necessary ports on your router, and also check the firewall not to block the game.
If you can find this file in NWN2's library try to do the same thing with it, bacause the cause why you cant play on hamachi with the game is the same.
if not.... ive read a few forum and the people there write something about disconnect your pc from the net before the bioware online login and reconnect it after the login so you tricked the original server with it and hamachi works this way. Worth a try
