Title: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: k_moustakas on September 02, 2009, 08:51:18 AM
I haven't changed anything in my nwn/internet configuration for months. Today, as I tried to log in, I keep getting the following:

I keep getting the messages A) Server has denied access to your name B) Your cd key is not authorized C) error, timed out

Out of the eleven times, once I managed to log in without problem (but I had chosen the wrong char in my hurry). On logging out and trying to log back in, I got more of the same.

- I am not aware of any pending bans or somesuch to my name :p -

I am getting the same thing also. Was a little surprised at the 4/90 number today when I tried to log in...I guess the problem must be affecting more than a few.

Post by: Kaldo on September 02, 2009, 09:29:52 AM
Yes, that also happened to me. I usually just leave Nwn and when I come back I usually can log in right away. Although some times I have to try this more than once

Got it as well, both the messages. Then I managed to log in anyway.

Er. Double post. But now. Like. It booted me. At the new log in it seems I've no more characters. Like... *faints*
Title: Re: Bug: Can't log in the server
Post by: Chrisman888 on September 02, 2009, 10:19:53 AM
It's normally just a lag on the main server part, that being NWN or whoever hosts it.

I seem to have this problem to log in the server, it says that my Login is not allowed to log in and when i changed my Login, the server says my game IP is unauthorized,so can someone help me? Im i banned?

Post by: Pepchko on September 02, 2009, 11:31:22 AM
im also getting the same error, also the times i managed to log in it was ungodly laggy, like back when the mod was on the Old server. has to be some sort of confliction happening from the last update maybe?

Post by: Kilaana on September 02, 2009, 11:48:31 AM
Ok, I managed to log in now. But it took like about 10 seconds for character list to show up (something lke what Ciaran said), so I'm guessing Chrisman was right about the main server having lag issues.

Keep trying, guys.
Title: Scary thought! Issue with connecting HELP!
Post by: WildPirate13 on September 02, 2009, 11:50:09 AM
OK tried to log in at 12:50 Ast. Was playing last night...
 first POTM didnt appear on my faves..
  second tried to log in and gave me message cd key was in use
  third tried to log in again gave me a message not authorized for potm..
  Scary now.
  I then tried to log in again and said connection was not authorized..
 Worried!
  Will try and log in after I post but wondering what the heck is going on. Have played here for over a year no problems.

Tried again server was up around 12 players online and still couldnt log in
 cd key unauthorized?  I am not on a ban list or anything along those lines etc...
 Help!



Tried again and player name was refused by server!
Title: Re: Scary thought! Issue with connecting HELP!
Post by: Minstrel on September 02, 2009, 11:59:36 AM
Try Direct Connect.

Or try waiting ten minutes or so and try again.

I've had similar problems and it normally fixes itself if you let it sulk for a bit.

I hear about cd key theft. I also heard rumors on other servers how people are not notified of bans or even why. I am a laid back player but I want my POTM!

tried direct ip connect and still said not authorized....

Post by: Philhelm on September 02, 2009, 12:10:42 PM
Same problem here.  It says my CD key is unauthorized.  On the other hand it appears that fifteen players are on the server, so for some reason this has not effected everyone.  Does anyone have any insight on this issue?
Title: Re: Bug: Can't log in the server
Post by: Minstrel on September 02, 2009, 12:13:32 PM
I managed to get in, but... The lag is crippling. I said something to someone as they inched past me (obviously suffering lag too) and only had it pop up above my head about a minute after I said it.

Meh. Server needs the gunk cleaning out of it.

I got in briefly, and it disconnencted, saying that the player name has been banned.

Well I am trying to log in for some time and I just can't, so I started reading... but I got bored, so I decided to punish those who the fault belongs to. I've come to the conclusion that all the Prisioners of the Mist are guilty, so I am going to Spam the Forums. [youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anwy2MPT5RE&feature=fvst[/youtube]

If you can log in to other servers, your CD key has not been stolen. Maybe we could check our bans and make sure people are not being randomly added by an outside source? Is that even possible?

Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: failed.bard on September 02, 2009, 01:36:18 PM
I was told bans can only go in with server updates, and that they are added by the admins.  With the set up that's in place I think the only way to hack-ban would be if a DM account got hacked.  Those come into effect at the next log-in, but since people have gotten that message and then logged in after, that isn't the case.
  It's probably just server side lag interrupting the verification process.  I'm assuming the lack of response is being taken as a false positive by the system.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: Emomina on September 02, 2009, 01:38:28 PM
this is obviously something else going on, it affects everyone, but eventually lets you in. and we have 3 threads open about it, we should designate one to use going forward probably.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: Chrisman888 on September 02, 2009, 01:38:50 PM
If you can log into other servers then it is not the main server. It is POTM, probably something is lagging really bad...

OR

Someone hacked in and banned yoous all like Lawful Joe said, that is unlikely, but who knows.

Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: herkles on September 02, 2009, 01:47:42 PM
I did notice that the thread regarding how to direct connect stated that there was a new IP address, though that may have already been in use by others but it is one idea as to why there is this problem with the server.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: Chrisman888 on September 02, 2009, 01:48:10 PM
PotM is lagging really bad when I got in. And no, nobody banned anyone as I doubt he hacked the server again just to unban me after 20secs.

Then it's a POTM problem, all we have to do is wait.

Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: LeslieMS on September 02, 2009, 01:48:39 PM
I have the problem off and on but I usually just get the message that says the player name is unauthorized... usually its when I try the direct connect method... if it fails after a few tries still I just close it out and clean my cache and try again... that usually fixes the problem

Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: Pepchko on September 02, 2009, 03:30:59 PM
this is more then likely linked to a faulty script change in the last update. seems like the scripts are all wacked bogging down the server. if its true that bans are scripted in then that would explain why people are seeing the banned messages. i saw all of the error messages, and i eventually got in from constantly trying to log in. but its super laggy and i actually crashed which never happens on my machine. so something is messed up for sure and its more then Just IP lag.

hypothetical situation...but if you crash and cannot log in again because the scripts go nuts on that one... well we will all be bored sad little people with nothing better to do until they fix it... or at least nothing better to do that we WANT to do =)
Title: Player name refused?
Post by: PolarSam on September 02, 2009, 05:16:13 PM
Getting an error on login that says: Your player name is refused by the server.

Other times it's: Your connection to the server has tiimed out.

Tried both direct connect and through the gamespy menu.. says there are 21 people playing so I don't think the server is down :/
CD Key is good, my own copy of Diamond with the wrapping still on when I got it.

Any help would be very much appreciated :)

The secret is to bombard the server with log in attempts and then wait a few moments, then try.  If it says "Server is loading" and just hovers there--just let it load and you'll eventually get in.

I've been having the same problem all day as well. I got in fine earlier this afternoon... then I got the whole CD key/Login/Ban thing on my end as well. Five hours later, it's still doing it to me.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: PolarSam on September 03, 2009, 12:37:02 AM
Should we just not log in so it can be fixed. If DMs aren't able to get in either they can't tell the people who are in to empty out for a server reboot or whatever needs to be done.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: Emomina on September 03, 2009, 01:06:57 AM
Its not a matter of players being online. Its a matter of Axel and Søren being in Denmark, and its just now really early morning there, so neither are likely to even be aware of the issue yet. When they first hit the forums, a fix will follow shortly.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: Aahz on September 03, 2009, 01:07:38 AM
It was bad enough earlier in the day. It took 10 to 20 tries before I could log in and then experienced killer lag. Now it takes 40+ tries to get in and when I do I get maybe a minute or two before I am kicked with the "your IP address is banned" massage.    :cry:
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: LeslieMS on September 03, 2009, 03:49:36 AM
Well the good news is I was able to log in [after trying all day, getting all manner of strangeness]... the bad news is I was only one of about a dozen or fewer that were able to stay in... The interesting thing was the lag, which at one point got so bad... no one could move... not the PC or the Badguys which was strange because we could still type and send tells relatively up to speed.

Don't know if any of this info is helpful or not but I noticed a lot of times when any little obstacle would totally freeze a character... the ability to 'path search' was nil.  Sometimes commands would not clear out of the command bar at the top even though they had been completed, and more commands were in cue and firing normally but there would be one or two that would not clear

Some monsters corpses were acting strange... almost 'reanimating' after death and before fading away

Other than lag

it ran well enough considering there were problems.

On average... you could get logged in after about 2 dozen or so tries but no guarantee you could stay logged.

Hope some of that helps maybe in tracing down the root of the problem, but it all seems so disconnected... still I passed it along just in case =)

Good luck.  Hope you folks can get it fixed soon.
[wink wink] before folks start having withdrawls from Ravenloft  hehehehehehe.

And truthfully while a hacking is always possible... it seems far to random to be a hack... but a virus is possible, or it could just be a script gone awry.  Either way all the best to those who have to try to untangle it =) I mean that, sincerely.  Ravenloft is my second home...  :)

Post by: Amon-Si on September 03, 2009, 07:57:17 AM
Seems only one of my accounts is being screened by the server, my other ones (that I haven't played for over a month) Remain unchanged. Can we deduce anything from this?

Most certainly just to await Soren and Alex to handle this.
It is still the same for me when i try to log on...

I'm pretty sure it will get fixed one way or the other soon. I just hope it is not by a rebuild of the server software because of some type of corruption.

But if it is, and just to toss it out, it would be a good time to maybe stop and talk about ways the player base could help make the atmosphere more immersive. Or plan out a thing or two for a more logical conformity thats true to canon material amongst native characters. If everyone has to start new characters anyhow, why not do a little group brain storming on it if it will result in a better roleplay experience.

Just tried logging in, no problems. Lag seems to have gone, but not tried hunting yet although movement and chat-window text seem fine. Seems the reset has improved things a bit.

Just did a reset and now the majority of people logging in seem to have had few problems, however can everyone still post if they have problems so that the Admin can check everything

Yes Lag is gone for now

Its still bad for me but it did changed. Before the error messages would change "Timeout"; "unauthorized CD key"  "Server refused player name" and sever times it would just freeze when trying to log in.

Now all I get is quick and endless "Server refused player name" errors and can not get in at all. Tried over 60 times so far and nothing.

 Any news on when we all can play again?
 Or why certain people can log in?

E.T.A.s, ideas, guesses?

So are some people having no problem at all today logging in?  I decided yesterday was a good day to go to a baseball game (a field with real grass and dirt too!) so I never bothered logging in after seeing the reports of problems. 

Once I see the server is healthy to log into, I'll hop in.

Try this:

Instead of double clicking on the blue server line on Gamespy, click on it once, and hit the connect button. It got me in Playerside.

Hmm, can't really pinpoint what might be causing this - seems rather inconsistent. But I'm rather certain it has nothing to do with the module - so it may be the university network, if not some odd gamespy issue. Let's hope it passes by itself, but rest assure that we'll be monitoring it closely, so keep reporting :)

odd... i was spaming my Direct connect icon, and after a few tries i finally got in. when i did get in, i saved manually via the radial menu. i just tried logging in 3 times each one successful. that worked for me. i suggest to try it. cant hurt

I'm a relative newcomer. I only have a few characters on PotM, and none of them are above level 4. Haven't been playing more than a few weeks here. I can't get on through Gamespy or Direct Connect. I get - CD Key invalid. Then I get - player named not accepted. Then I get Server timed out. Mostly I get player name not accepted. I tried starting a new account on gamespy, but it responds with the same message.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: UilliamNebel on September 03, 2009, 06:09:44 PM
Can someone whom is able to connect on one Gamespy account and not another, and is willing to, download and install Wireshark on their box. Then do a capture in promiscuous mode while logging in? Most likely won't help, but you never know.
Title: Re: Problem with loggin in the server
Post by: Bob on September 03, 2009, 06:14:57 PM
I just now managed to log in with an old account that I had never used before on PotM. It let me start a new character with no complaints of any kind. But it still won't let me access my old account with my old characters. it continues to tell me that my CD key is invalid, and then that my old player name is not accepted. I would just start over, except that even though they are low level I have put in a lot of time and effort getting those guy equipped. I FINALLY got some silver weapons and decent armor on my ranger, and my rogue/sorcerer is starting to actually be able to handle a day's huntin without getting killed. NOW it has to eat them? NOW!?

Post by: nakedxXbeauty on September 03, 2009, 06:23:41 PM
After about a thousand attempts I was able to AND login.  I had every single possible issue last night from banning to refused login and also unauthorized player name.  At one point I connected to the server but my character list wouldn't show up.  Another time I could click on my characters but I couldn't press play.  I had to try a few times today but finally connected and was able to log on.

-Also, I was able to connect just fine to a number of other servers Dunno if this helps, but it seems that potm is the only server having issues like this.

That is my primary method and it does not work any better for me. That said I was able to log in finally after numerous attempts, played for a good while, crashed, then was able to long in after that with out any problems.

[edit]
 Just checked once more and I'm back to being refused again

I went into gamespy and clicked on server details. Then I clicked the connect button and finally got on. I thought Hey! :) But alas...

I logged otu to switch characters and my jubilation twisted in a matter of mere seconds into horror and despair. Once again, the server doesn't like me anymore. :(
