That is correct. Ben believes the error we are seeing is caused by a lack of a NeuWon CD key.

You would think that if a CD key was required for the original Swat 3 servers that the game would have built in a proper error reporting ie "Sorry, your CD Key is invalid".

edit: in the strings.dat there is the following entry:
//	Name					value
//	----					-----
	InvalidCDKey				CD Key is invalid!
	CDKeyInUse				CD Key is already in use!

I still get the same error Jim. Pauses for about 10 seconds and then gives me the "unexpected error".

I fixed the problem

I had hardcoded the dbproxyserver ip in the directoryserver which was an old ip.

the game will connect now.

once slipperyjim finishes his last resort fixes i will release the neuwon patch.

the patch makes a user login or register with their game account to acquire a new cdkey/retrieve their old cdkey.

I can't, lol. When I used Ben's application called "cdkey_swat3.exe" to generate a CD key for NeuWon it seems to have buggered my CD Key. Swat 3 won't start up and just asks for a CD key. Doh!!

Considering the hacked .exe files are all based upon old executables that used CD keys maybe it is time to see if a hacked GOG.com version would be better.

Mine did the same, I grabbed the CD-Key from the NeuWON site once I signed in and viewed my keys and manually input it but still said invalid key, this was yesterday, I had forgot I already did all that and SWAT just booted today without asking so don't know what happened there.
