Portal, then portal again

PostAuthor: Pyracantha » Sat Mar 27, 2004 4:49 pm

Elenya went to Hala last night. But then I had to log off, but the IP address in the latest Avlis update email didn't work when I tried to log back into Hala directly. So I logged into Elysia, and Elenya went from Elysia to Hala again, and I got the right login info from someone via Tell.

Is this dangerous? If a char goes from Elysia to Hala, logs out of Hala, logs into Elysia, and goes through to Hala again, does it cause any problems?

Yes it does. It will load an old .bic file from the Avlis server instead of the most updated one from the Hala server. Suppose the following happens:

- Your character uses the portal in Elysia to Hala at level 1
- In Hala your character reaches level 2
- You log off and log back on in Elysia (which is your level 1 character)
- You take the portal to Hala meaning the level 1 .bic file overwrites the level 2 one

I think this will be changed though, but I'm not too sure about that.

Thanks.

So the worst that happens is I lose anything I gained/bought during my first foray in Hala. That's no big deal.

Damn, I just checked the last e-mail update for Avlis and CoPaP and you're absolutely right. Hala does not run a static IP, so you can't connect using it. When trying to connect use the following address:

nwn.hala-world.org:5121

The password in the mail is correct.
So much fun,
