cd key is not authorized error on battlefront 1
Anyway to allow multiple players with the same cd key play on the same server? if you can do that, i bet i can get more players on them.

SUSPICIONS ABOUT THE PATCH:

  • It works to fix your windows registry if for some reason it is missing and you get the CDKey error
  • It does not always work if others have used the patch too and are already on the same server, then you need to run the CDKey.exe file OR manually change the key in the registry by at least 1 digit

Unfortunately results have not been consistent but I do have some more evidence I can pour over to see if there is a clue about what exactly is happening between client and server.  I will try to run some tests tonight.

Changing the registry only works for disk versions by the way. I own both and found the Steam app ID for BF2 (6060) and it showed nothing of use... I believe editing the registry only even works because GameSpy shutdown, so there's nothing to verify the key is valid.

Hey guys, so just found this, some friends and I are having a problem. Can we play on the server we're hosting? Because we can't seem to play in game if we're hosting.

Thanks!

Yes.   Please tell us how you are hosting--with the dedicated server software, or through the game (like the steam version of the game or game CD).

Also, tell us what patch you are using for SWBFspy--

Well as long as you load your game up with "Battlefront SWBFSpy.exe" for now on (or whatever you may have renamed it to) then if you select multiplayer it should pop up with a bunch of servers.

For some reason when I replaced my executable with the patched SWBFspy version, it wouldn't launch the game, saying its "missing the executable" So I renamed the patched exe to "battlefrontII.exe", game now launches and runs reliably, I can connect to the SWBFspy servers and play. That said, for whatever reason, I can no longer connect to servers through gameranger. :confused: I can log in to GR and join lobbies, but when I launch Battlefront 2 via 'join' button it just says "connecting" for 15 seconds, then says "connection to host could not be established". To make matters worse, I switched back to the vanilla version of the executable and the problem persists, not sure why. I was under the impression that it was possible to use both SWNFspy and GR simultaneously. Either I'm missing something or I made a mistake of some sort.

You cant use the patched version for both.

Hi, I'm new to this site and really just created an account to play online so sorry if I'm resurrecting a dead post but every time I try and load up the game with the new exe it opens like it wants to start the game but then doesn't go any further and freezes. I'm on win 7 if it makes any difference.
