Invalid guid

Question

A friend of mine has a problem getting a GUID. I instructed him to do the following http://fearless-assassins.com/tutorials/article/200-how-to-get-a-new-etkey-guid-since-pb-dropped-et-support/ and he put etkey in etmain and appdata-blabla-etmain folder aswell. He gets kicked for Invalid GUID http://www.xfire.com/screenshots/128927561 .  He also tried to reconnect after getting kicked multiple times. He tried to do /pb_cl_enable; pb_system 1; pb_writecfg; reconnect in console. He is running Windows 7. Any ideas? I thought this would be fixed with the pb_cl_enable command but I guess it doesn't work if he can't even get in to a server with PB to do it...

His config is fine I checked it. Problem isn't in etkey because he tried mine and it didn't work. He's running ET as admin.

That doesn't surprise me since the problem can't be the etkey itself. After all these new etkeys players use after pb stopped supporting ET aren't even real etkeys.

 

Which version of ET is he using? Can you tell him to check what is his /cl_guid ? It should be either "unknown" or a valid pb guid format (hexadecimal number, 0-9A-F 32 characters long)

 

Is PunkBuster installed at all?

2.60B. cl_guid said it was invalid guid. He used some Ultimate ET installer pack and has pb folder in ET folder so I guess it's installed?

My pb folder in

C:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory

 

has 7.74 MB (8,126,041 bytes) 

and 30 files in 5 folders.

 

I doubt that you need exactly the same number of files and MB, but it should not be much smaller.

I meant after you load et without any mod (etmain) and without connecting to any server.

If I remember correctly, this invalid guid message comes from jaymod, right? So you shouldn't get it before connecting to any server.

 

Pb has also some services, but I guess if that installer installs everything then pb services are installed as well.

I think its NQ which gives kicks for "invalid guid". And hit Play Online-> Enable Punkbuster in ETMAIN after just running ET and then load NQ\jaymod etc in MODS and repeat Enable Punkbuster.
