I cannot connect to any of the servers.

"Connection error - could not translate address"

Tried rebooting and resetting the router but no luck :cry:

Any ideas please? X:|

Even if I replace world.avlis.org with the IP address 198.101.12.59 it still gives the same :cry:

Couple of us on Elysia now, so it's probably not on Avlis' end.

The haks aren't new, and shouldn't have anything to do with a connection error (it would say missing haks and list them... and I doubt they are live yet ). :wink:

They are empty placeholders we use for server-side content, and were part of the needed files list for a very long time. Nothing will change for players because of them being attached to the modules now (unless they don't add them, and get a missing hak error). :P

I have the haks, I can ping the address, but it still gives the same error whether I try the address or the IP address.

Nothing should have changed - it worked fine on Tuesday and Wednesday, then suddenly doesn't work on Thursday with the same shortcuts. Also tried Direct Connect. Same result with DM and Player versions. Not using a semicolon instead of a colon :cry:

some random internet person said
Hello, it seems that I've ended up getting the dreaded 'Cannot Translate Address' problem. I've tried all the solutions on this thread, but nothing has worked. I'm out of ideas, hoping someone may have something I could try.

Edit: er okay... found a solution. For some reason it works when i enter the address into the nwnplayer.ini manually instead of in-game. copy pasting the address into the game or typing it out didn't matter but that worked. Yay!


There are a few nwn related forum entries on google that delve in to this issue sorry im not more versed in its cause or solution.

edit ...one from avlis

Very strange - I can connect as DM or Player if I run the standard NWN Start, go to Multiplayer, select Internet Game, Cancel when it fails to find Gamespy, then select Elysia from the History and enter password (for DM) or just go straight in for Player.

If I try my usual shortcuts or the Direct Connect option, it fails as before, even if I just connected successfully by the other method :cry:

Someone please help me resolve this as the only method that works is a real pain to use :glaskugel:

At least that method does let me in I suppose :ka:


Does anyone know if it is safe to let Windows apply the Fall Creators update please, so I can at least regain the ability to reboot if necessary :?

This really should be in its own topic. :wink:

Can you copy/paste the exact command line you are using, including the path in your shortcut? There is no way to guess what it is without checking what you are doing differently. For the direct connect option, I already asked about checking for typos and spaces in the world.avlis.org:5121 connection line (space before it, or a ; instead of : which causes that same error), but check a 17th time. :P

Since you have to cancel at the GameSpy thing, I'm assuming you aren't using NWNCX either, so maybe download that, and try running the NWNCX loader? Also check what IP numbers you have blocked in your HOSTS file to allow it to work that way (there are 3 in the link below - more were added later).
Code: Select all
0.0.0.0 nwmaster.bioware.com
0.0.0.0 nwn.master.gamespy.com
0.0.0.0 peerchat.gamespy.com

Gorgon wrote:*Note* I, and others, use shortcut links to connect directly to the servers, instead of dealing with the front end, and have for over a decade. They also let you skip DNS checks if you use IP numbers. Creating Windows shortcuts for Avlis has more details for basic ones. If you use the NWNCX loader (mentioned above), just replace nwmain.exe in the shortcuts with NWNCX_Loader.exe.


From the NWNCX readme.txt:
-- Installation --

Copy NWNCX.dll and the plugins you need (nwncx_*.dll) to the NWN main folder. Choose one of the launch modes below:

-- Launch modes --

There are two options:
* Run a loader that launches nwmain with NWNCX attached (NWNCX_Loader.exe). Copy NWNCX_Loader.exe to the NWN main folder and run it instead of nwmain.exe. You might have to run it as administrator in some cases.

*The second option is patching your nwmain.exe, which you don't need to do.

You only need the following files from the download in your NWN game folder (don't add the rest of the plugins or any extra NWNCX folders, since we don't use them, or they require patching your nwmain.exe):
  1. NWNCX_Loader.exe - Launches nwmain.exe with NWNCX attached.
  2. NWNCX.dll - NWNCX core file.
  3. nwncx_disablems.dll - Disables client account validation to eliminate timeout waiting.
  4. nwncx_serverlist.dll - GameSpy replacement. Queries Skywing's server instead of GameSpy (gets back the server list in the client).

I am assuming that nobody will want to login this week as you all have families.

However if anyone does I will still be around - with a tiny dog asleep on my lap.

I will check in later :prost:
