Server Authentication Failed (3)
« on: January 18, 2013, 05:01:54 AM »
I keep getting this on most servers.  I don't get it--I have a legitimate copy, yet, I can't play!

I've tried this:

http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,16445.msg277021.html#msg277021

And it doesn't work.

My key is from Origin.  What gives?  Any ideas?

try the CryHammer tool  It'll tell you if the key is valid

Sometimes details are more particular than they appear.

Looks like my registry keys were correct.  It also looks like my Crysis Wars key inside the game was off by one digit... 2 instead of an S.  Fixed that--still can't get punkbuster to run but I was able to connect to a MWLL server I couldn't earlier.  Will have to try on the one with players on it and report back.

Yep, that worked.  Logged into a PB enabled server within Crysis Warhead with the... /correct/ key--not a digit off and problem solved.

Something must have gotten goofed up with my install between the upgrade.

You don't need punkbuster working, and even punkbuster doesn't supports Crysis Wars with automatic updates anymore. Punkbuster was just used for the original Crysis Wars, not MWLL.
Tools and I:
   - MWLL Online Launcher (LAN UDP Forwarder) - evolution of past "Le Proof of Concepto" project: connect without Gamespy via packet redirection;
   - Vehicle Browser - "Pocket Wiki" ©okaolias (not really that though);
   - Rconnect 4.3 - Server tools: map manager/player voting add-ons;
   - CryHammer - Validates Patch/CDKey of Crysis Wars (now unable to validate CDKey due to turned off Gamespy servers).
