Reinstalling the game now but never did the MP. I want to do the campaign with him and just curious if anyone has done it and how well it worked. Not looking for game review (I loved the official campaign) but more mechanics. Was it fairly stable? Do you get a companion still if room in the party (it would just be two of us)?

We hope to start it in a few weeks so just doing a little research.
I played through the OC with my girlfriend. The campaign works but has some bugs. Quests that are supposed to be single character obviously become much easier, but this is no big deal.

A worse bug is how you can mess up the influence system and alignment shifts. If another player than the lead does the talking then that character will gain influence with NPCs! There is an easy workaround though, just let the host handle all conversations.

In my experience the NWN1 expansions play pretty well in MP except for cutscenes, which might hang. We worked around this by disconnecting the second player just before cutscenes.
