No, you don't have to run them through the GS app, you can just load the exe's from the install directory.

Also, I've installed NWN2 and while I see no signs of SecuROM, I can't really tell if there was or wasn't an online check at installation either.
The Mysteries of Westgate expansion is included with the base NWN2, and the other two expansions are just tiny 2MB downloads which leads me to believe they really just contain an activation or something of the like.


Edit: Also, I couldn't help but notice, the day came and went with no news about the Bethesda keys. :|

Edit 2: Yup, installing the expansions just adds their CD keys to nwncdkey.ini

Thanks for squashing the GS forced client rumor. =) (Didn't make sense.) Also thanks for the NWN2 update.

Thanks for the confirmation too. Might consider GS if they have a great great deal on something from now on.

Yup. Just got the one key that I missed (Rage).

Now begins the mad rush for everybody to try and resell their keys before the bottom drops out of the market.

Also: Beth keys.Yay finally.

I'm just glad they tired of their devious plan to delay the situation in order to either rob people or get them to cancel their orders and came to their senses and delivered the keys as promised.

If GG had just come out and offered "anyone may opt out of their pack order, cancel, and receive the 20% year discount instead", I probably would have gone for it...


Yeah, I think the value of the 20% discount over a year for an avid backlogger like me is higher than the 60 or so bucks saved on the Bethesda Pack (and who knows, come December 2013 we might see a new (non-glitched) Bethesda Pack and I'll be able to purchase it at 20% off!)

That said, you are in the right community because if you ever want anything from GG at 20% off I am sure you can find a helpful CAG to hook you up free of charge.

Edit:
And yeah, so far this year I have saved around $28 using the 20% discount (I've hosted a few group buys at discount). That's just in a few weeks of the discount. If it last the year, it will definitely be a great value for me.

So what is the situation with the Borderlands 2 pack? No refund, keys, or discount for me still.

I believe those should have been sorted out very shortly after that happened. Most people either got refunded or keys in the few days afterwards. I suggest you open a support ticket.

Nope, you don't get a backup installer, you need the GS app to install.

I did notice this though - you can back up the entire install directory (ie C:\Program Files\Baldur's Gate) and run that from wherever you want. You might have to change the .ini files though.

It doesn't download like a separate installer(like GG or GMG) that you can just copypasta? Darn.

I hate having another App for games. But it may be worth it. I was hoping another place would have this set for 5$ but hard to say if it will happen.

Yup. I've been telling people to wait for a GoG sale and now that they have NWN2 I especially would recommend doing so. Or at least wait for GamersGate to have the GoG version which I assume they will after the exclusivity period.

Well i'm not interested in NWN to be honest since I have the retail edition of NWN2 base. But for the other D&D games, the only other price that close was GG's glitch. GoG's D&D pack was like 20$ but it included NWN1 and some other stuff when it was on sale a few weeks ago.

GG had the D&D Master Anthology at $6.78 and then at $5.xx for a full day each time quite some time back (February 2012 the first time, possibly March or April the second..?).

I'm in the same situation. I can't even see the "Show serial key" button.

I never managed to access any of the keys, so I'm afraid they will cancel my order if I open a support ticket. I can wait a little longer...

Guys, if someone is interested in something on Gamersgate, I can buy it for you in exchange of some Bethesda keys of the same price. PM me if you're interested.

GG just listed NWN2 Complete:

http://www.gamersgat...complete-bundle

$14.99 on sale (25% off) with Securom listed as DRM AND stating it won't work on 64 Bit OS? At least one of the expansions states so.

That's interesting (also same price and discount as GOG). Two days ago the only NWN2 (not packed with NWN1) available on GG was on the UK side. From my research, NWN2 works fine on Win7-64; I read that that comment was specifically regarding Win XP-64 (which was a very problematic release) -- NT 4.0 on DEC Alpha had better compatibility than WinXP-64.

http://www.gamersgat...platinum-bundle
which is the Platnium Ed, two expansions, not three in the new one.

Yesterday when NWN2 debuted on GOG, I was feeling optimistic since Hasbro was clearing actively licencing NWN2 (on Wed it's digital download distribution was quite limited).

The GG NWN2 page here:
http://www.gamersgat...winter-nights-2
didn't exist on Wed. However it did exist on the UK side
http://www.gamersgat...winter-nights-2
Clearly they point at the same information, since they have the same product code DD-NWN2 and the GG.com side has reviews dating back to June or earlier (despite not existing on Wed).

GG could be wrong on the DRM (esp since the page is a copy of the older UK-only distribution). They have overestimated DRM before. Vanguard Princess is actually DRM-FREE.

Edit: Note that the "new" NWN2 listing on GG.com still lists Atari as the pub. Hasbro has been the pub for around a year.
