NWN on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

For some strange reason, NWN keeps hanging on my Ubuntu PC when I click on the multi player button. It has only just started doing this.

I thought it might have been related to the removal of the raring repositories. Not sure.

Anyone got any ideas?

Does it happen when you click on MultiPlayer or when you click on Join Internet Game (or similar) after the Master Server error? If it's the latter, it's most likely due to the GameSpy chat server being dead since a few days ago, the client tries to contact it and freezes 'till it gets an answer or a timeout. You can get an instant timeout by editing the /etc/hosts file and adding the line "0.0.0.1 peerchat.gamespy.com"

Yay. It was the Gamespy server. It was happening when I clicked on join internet game.

All sorted now! Thanks all!
