To play on Avlis you will need some hak and tlk files. Most files are compressed in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAR_(file_format) RAR] or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZIP_(file_format) ZIP] or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7-Zip 7-Zip] files and you will need to unzip/unrar them before use. Hak files go in the Hak directory and Tlk files into the Tlk directory (which you may need to create) in your Neverwinter Nights folder.

Avlis uses custom content such as original items, custom/enhanced creatures, as well as special files that allow one to explore tree cities, drylands, and hillocks. Once you have [[NWN Requirements | NWN installed on your computer]], you will need to supplement it with the custom content files listed below. Most of these files are compressed in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAR_(file_format) RAR] or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZIP_(file_format) ZIP] or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7-Zip 7-Zip] files and you will need to unzip/unrar them before use. Hak files go in the /hak directory and tlk files into the /tlk directory (which you may need to create) in your Neverwinter Nights folder.

Latest revision as of 15:54, 20 September 2017


Avlis uses custom content such as original items, custom/enhanced creatures, as well as special files that allow one to explore tree cities, drylands, and hillocks. Once you have NWN installed on your computer, you will need to supplement it with the custom content files listed below. Most of these files are compressed in RAR or ZIP or 7-Zip files and you will need to unzip/unrar them before use. Hak files go in the /hak directory and tlk files into the /tlk directory (which you may need to create) in your Neverwinter Nights folder.


Single File Download for all Custom Content


Instructions: Extract all files in the hak directory to the same directory of your Neverwinter Nights installation. Extract the single .tlk file (currently copaptlk_4_9.tlk) in the tlk directory to the same directory of your Neverwinter Nights installation (New installations may need to created a tlk folder).

None of this is required, but is nice!

NWN Direct Connect Launchers/Batch Files

Neverwinter Nights Client Extender (NWNCX)

NWNCX on the Neverwinter Nights Community Site

  • Removes the long wait for the (non-functional) Master Server to time out.
  • Restores multiplayer server listing in-game (using data from Skywing's replacement listing server).
  • Unlocks the game's camera angle limitation (so you can do things like look straight up to see more of the game).

Be sure to read the included instructions (readme.txt), as this can be used as a pre-loader, or to patch your nwmain.exe.

Note: You do not need to patch anything to use this on Avlis. The NWNCX_Loader.exe will do everything you need.


NWN Direct Connect Launcher

This runs on newer systems, and has similar features to Avlis Side-Kick. The different servers will need to be added manually, and there is some configuration to do in the settings.


Avlis Side-Kick

This handy little utility helps you connect to the different servers. It stores all the connection information for them and you just select which one you want and "launch" it. It also bypasses all the splash screens that you see when you launch Neverwinter the normal way. You can add the new servers by right-clicking in the servers list and choosing Add Server. They can also be edited by right-clicking on the server and choosing Properties. It also has a somewhat handy time calculator that compares your computer's timezone setting to GMT.

  • Warning: The Visimontium port is wrong in the initial install.
  • Note: This needs the .NET Framework to function.


Note: No longer supported by newer operating systems or .NET versions. See the discussion topic for details, and links to older versions.


.bat/.cmd) File Direct Connect Option

Another option is making .bat files.

Note: Newer versions of Windows restrict running .bat files when clicking them (console usage only). You can replace the ".bat" extension with ".cmd" in these instructions, and they will work normally.

To make the .bat file, open notepad, or another text editor, and add the line:

nwmain.exe +connect world.avlis.org:5121

Note that I didn't include +password xxxxxxxx in this, as Avlis/CoPaP no longer use passwords to connect. Save it as Mikona.bat in your nwn directory.

Repeat the process, changing 5121 to a different port, and saving the files as follows (depending on the port - remember the .bat extension e.g. Elysia.bat):

T'Nanshi: world.avlis.org:5122
Elysia: world.avlis.org:5123
Le'Or: world.avlis.org:5124
Deglos: world.avlis.org:5125
Ferrell: world.avlis.org:5126
