Starting today everyone must register a new cdkey

To do so, go to the following page and fill out the form:
neuwon.com/viewpage.php?page_id=15


(currently only swat3 option works so do not select a different game)

once you hit submit, you will download a file called cdkey.exe

This file just encrypts the key and saves it to the registry.

In 5 days i will be updating the auth server which will only allow cdkeys that have been registered through the website.


if you have any issues please email me shefben at gmail.com or post here or the neuwon forums.

Thanks

First time I read this I thought it would register our keys to NeuWON which I imagine would cause some hassle since anyone with the GoG install would have the same key.

I guess this is making a new unique key for us to use? when I hit "Get CDKey" on the site its just redirecting me to the homepage, I'm not getting no cdkey.exe.

Why the change to the auth server?

i fixed the page, please try it again.

the change is because all these games are old. im guessing most people have the same cdkey which makes it difficult to manage users who cheat among other things.

in all it just helps me manage users easier and also means i can remove some hacks i added to the code to ignore multiple cdkeys.

some of the protocols actually generate an ID from the key. that in turn can screw multiplayer games up

i have finished the php scripts to:
1.) register an new account with the neuwon network
2.) Link your network account with the website account
3.) Register cdkeys for specific games

to see these scripts in action just go to neuwon.com and login, the links will be on the left hand side bar


i soon will add scripts to update the network account info (change password email etc..)
and add a reset password script for forgotten passwords

Awesome news Ben. Glad to see you are expanding features.

I wish I had more time to finish the updates to the Last Resort mod so it natively supports Neuwon. I have been busy last few weeks on a TV show that shoots out of town a lot. It goes until December but they do have some breaks in between.

I will continue to work on it when I can (I promise!)

Ben I need your help if you could please.

I reformatted my computer and was setting everything up. I forgot I didn't get around to installing SWAT3 and then I read your post about registering your account with the NeuWON network. So I followed the instructions not knowing it wasn't installed and it registered a random CD key to my website account. I proceeded to install SWAT3 and used my retail key, loaded SWAT3 and tried to join online and it said invalid CD key (on the actual game). I then went to my registered CD keys and changed my SWAT3 key to the one registered and it won't even let me on the SWAT3 game itself after entering it (like you would for the first time).

My question is could you please delete the current CD key on my account and let me re-register with the correct (retail) key I've always had? If not I'm not going to be able to play online.

I'm sorry for the screw up, I should have been paying more attention. I hate to bother you but there's nothing I can do to fix it unless you can add my retail key to my account or delete it completely and let me redo the steps to register it. Thank you for all your hard work!

heres a solution (hopefully)

open up regedit and go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WON\CDKeys


click the key called swat3 and hit delete.

then open swat3 and enter the key that is shown on the website

I went to the Registry Editor and I see no 'WON' folder (Attachment below)


And when I enter the SWAT3 key under the WON website in my account it says "Invalid CD Key'. (Attachment below)

UPDATE: Ok I found the 'WON' folder but it was under 'WOW6423Node'. I deleted the key. Then loaded SWAT3 and tried to enter the CD key provided under my 'Registered CD Keys' but it still says invalid key. I don't know if it helps or matters but I have the retail TGOTY edition (had it since SWAT3 came out).
