Banned upon entering?

Postby myth » Sun Apr 17, 2016 7:26 pm

Hey guys, I just redownloaded the game following the guidelines in the OSP Tuesday/Thursday Facebook group. Alas I was instantly banned from your active server upon loading up because of an empty cd key, which is an issue I think I've fixed. Any chance I can get unbanned? Or am I out of luck? Thanks!

I believe you joined as Wolfplayer. Tried to tell you but you were booted before I could. Change your name and you should be good.

Oops, I forgot to mention that that happened. That was my ban BEFORE this current ban that I'm discussing. I changed my name, and THEN I got booted for the CD key issue.

Is it YOUR key or from a generator?

Keygen. Like I said, I was just following the instructions posted in the Facebook group.

I guess if you guys don't allow generated keys on the server, that would explain why I got banned, as well as squash any hopes I have of getting unbanned. Ah well, I figure it was worth a shot. Thanks anyway!

Hey,

Try making your cd key read only in your rtcw folder. The file is called rtcwkey I think. Its in your main folder. You can open it with notepad and make sure its entered in completely including the last 2 digits/letters and in all lowercase.

And maybe right click the icon of wolf mp and do run in compatibility mode for XP sp3.

You just got an automated ban I think for the error.

Let me know if this works. Make sure you havea name too entered in both your main cfg and shrub. And don't use wolfplayer or n00b or reflex etc

Hey Parcher,

Made sure to change my name, made sure the characters in the rtcwkey are all lowercase, made rtcwkey read only, ran the game in administrator mode, etc. Still banned. Thanks anyway, though!

Done. It's not even loading up the map, btw, I just get stuck on the countdown screen with the message "You have been BANNED from this server".

I don't see anything. I don't even see you connect. Are you sure you are joining the right server?

Please run the game and open your console. Type this in "/pb_myguid" and post the results here.

Huh, weird. Here's what it says:

Punkbuster client: Current CDKey = xOwkxam2vpfkb6ynciuxrzbzecefzh6g -> GUID =

And then nothing. Which means that I don't have a PB Guid?

I followed everything in this post here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... =166033677

So how on earth do I acquire a PBGUID? And how am I not getting banned from other servers for not having one?
