Topic: [Solved]D2CS Won't Create Character or Load Newbie Save Files

I have got PvPGN working, at least on an Open realm. I am trying to run a Closed Realm but I keep getting an error when trying to create a character- the game is telling me that a character with name xyz already exists on the server (even though it doesn't). I have tried moving the entire directory to a different hard drive (figured maybe it was an issue with permissions) but that didn't change anything.
Anybody else have this issue? Any ideas? Everything is connecting like it should, but D2CS won't find the newbie save files (because they're nowhere to be found)

var/files/newbie.save

This seems very odd. Could you please upload your bnetd.conf and d2cs.conf - feel free to remove your IP

check if you have this file 'newbie.save' in that localization

Meanski- I checked my bnetd.conf and fixed the directory structures, as well as moving /files to /var/files as per the directory structure. This fixed the character creation issue BUT still left me at the same point as before- I'm still getting hung up at game creation.

Getting stuck on this screen. I have included D2CS, D2DBS and PvPGN in the screenshot as well as uploaded the log files.

Also, I am having no luck trying to telnet in to my game server.

Karol- I found the newbie.save file and have moved it to the proper location, thanks.

To run closed games you need to set up D2GS

Right. I have d2gs running as well, as a service. How would I best configure it?
Thx

Edit .reg file and put correct d2cs and d2dbs  ip, then add it to registry.

If d2gs is right set up, you should be able to connect via telnet.

Run cmd.exe and type: telnet d2gs_ip 8888

Default password is abcd123

After log in check connection to server command: status

Ok. I will reinstall D2GS with the default password. I am having issues connecting via telnet because it keeps saying the password is wrong. I have changed it several times to no avail.
I have the correct IP addresses in the .reg file and everything else checks out.

EDIT:
reinstalled d2gs, used default password and only changed IP addresses for d2cs and d2dbs.
Still not letting me log in thru telnet! mad

Update! I checked my registry, seemed I had 2 instances of d2gs. One in 32 but and one in 64. I deleted both, used the d2gs build from the magic PvPGN builder, and presto! It is working as intended! Thanks for the brainstorming!

Yes, I realized that afterwards.. was then having issues with staying connected to the game server but I think that was either because of warden or port forwarding issues (I changed both simultaneously so not sure which fixed it). But it is working now that I’ve disabled warden and put my server in dmz (lan is not connected to internet so not worried about that!)
