Maybe someone from the NWN/Avlis community can reach out to GameRanger for this as well? I've not looked into it a lot, but soon as I saw the headline of the article my first thoughts were of Avlis and NWN.

I've mentioned this a few times already, but NWNCX already can replace the old functionality of gamespy. It uses Skywing's master server list replacement, and Avlis has been using the plugin for it for a long time. Just download and follow the instructions to patch your file, and do remember to back it up first... in a few places. *edits* No patching needed actually, if you just want the serverlist stuff. I forgot that. :oops:

*The open face helms work too, with some model adjustments, but are quite glitchy. You need to unequip and reequip your helm/hood every login, or you see no head, and everyone else looks... strange. It needs some server-side scripting, or something through nwnx to make it really work. Smeec never looked better though, even with the clipping collar....

Well that's good news! I'll have to get that some time.
