CD-Key in use error
"The master server has determined your CD-Key is either invalid or already in use. If this problem persists, please contact Atari technical support."
I purchased the Special Edition as soon as I could get my grubby hands on it. I play online almost daily. And now suddenly I get this - mid-round - after i have been playing for about 1.5 hours straight. Now I get kicked out within 30 seconds of connecting to a server.
And before people say it, I don't warez. I have a hardware firewall and keep my Norton AntiVirus up-to-date. I don't have kids or anyone else using my PC. So the chances of someone getting hold of my key directly are very remote.
So I see 3 possibilities;
1. My install has corrupted out of the blue
2. The Master Server has erroneously got my key in a twist
3. Some &$^# has randomly generated my key and is using it.
Anyone else had this (other than the bugs that were in the early Ut patches - I run v3236)?
Help! I have a Clan match tomorrow night and I can't stay connected.
*Edit: I have sent an e-mail to Atari Tech Support, but 4-5 working days response time and only serve North America, so i don't hold much hope (I am in Australia).
Well I gave it some time and suddenly all is well again.
I just hope there is not some little %#$% out there with my key who might cause this again. Hopefully it was all just a glitch.
It happens to me sometimes??
I think it happens when you dont seem to dissconnet from a server propley??
(so the master server still thinks your playing on that server)
This is just guess work though.
The only solution i know,is to wait 15 mins or so,then try.
It's reassuring to know that it may be something as simple as that, because I would hate to think someone else has gotten hold of a actual key the same as mine.
