Invalid GUID recurring....

Question

Out of nowhere today I was kicked from the Recruiting server (haven't had a problem in quite awhile), and when I tried to reconnect it said "Invalid GUID..." something or other.... I ended up uninstalling both ET and PB, downloading a new ETkey from ETkey.org, and trying to reinstall, but it still gives me this error about an invalid GUID. In fact, the most recent attempt at installing ET failed completely; it wouldn't even start up!

 

What do I need to do in order to get back on F|A servers in ET? Or any servers for that matter... I know its an outdated game, but I like it, and I assume most of you do as well :)

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I think removing the old etkey out of etmain, and download a new 1 and copy this in etmain will help.

Make sure punkbuster is enabled and you are ready to go I think

 

Or were you renaming at the time ?

Not working?

If /cl_guid reveals that you have an *Unknown* guid, join a server then type the following:

/pb_cl_enable; pb_system 1; pb_writecfg; reconnect;

This should solve all issues.

@DFighter > I had recently changed my name and then was messing with colors too...

 

@mAdArA* > I tried that, followed the instructions in the guide on how to get a new ETKey/GUID, and I can connect for about a minute before the game freezes and either crashes or kicks me back to the main screen with no explanation.

 

I am apparently banned for ~18 days on F|A Recruiting where I normally play; it says for "respect or gtfo"(?). But why does it say I'm banned from the Jay2 server as well that I hardly ever play on? And even despite those 2 apparent bans, I'm able to play on all the other F|A servers? Although it does freeze/crash like I said, so I'm not really "playing" anything....

 

This is a weird problem that just arose out of nowhere. One minute I was playing, the next I can't even maintain a connection...??? I checked all of my hardware and my network setup, restarted modems and routers etc. but there hasn't been any change. Anyone else have any ideas?
