Sprocket Troubleshooting thread.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, this is my first post here, tho i registered a long time ago.

I would like to see if someone has the same problem,let me explain:

I bought the game (CZ version) via my-sprocket.com, and I downloaded the game's download manager (sprocket.exe).

The problem is, whenever I try to start the download, it says "Login failed!,try another server."

I don´t see any login screen, and the CZ mirror is the only server i see there.

Maybe the server is too busy? :S

Thanks, XJ

ps:yes,my firewall is closed,and I've opened basically ALL my router ports (unsafe, I know nener.gif ,but the game is worth the risk),I also used the search feature with no results.

pss:sorry for my bad english tounge2.gif

Forgive me but: wow_o.gif nothing is worth that risk - really

OK, maybe having a life without sorrows guaranteed till the

end of days or having an experience of which the kids of your

kids will still write books is worth it. icon_rolleyes.gif

Did you read anywhere that you have to run your system

totally unprotected to get the game going or downloaded?

Turn on your internet security imidiately before something

really weird happens to you or at least to your system. crazy_o.gif

i was joking, of course i didnt just turn off everything :P (i only turned off the firewall,because customer support told me to)

btw, i've emailed customer support, and after some questions about my specs and such, they have seen that sprocket blocked some ip's automatically, they just patched it, and now i have no problems at all with downloading notworthy.gif

MAN YOU LUCKY!!!

Lets see, No firewall, no Spyware blockers running!!

It's been just over 4 hours of trying to download.

I think somewhere about 400 attempts to download so far?

Weird, maybe downloads to Canada are blocked?

I will try a few more times Sunday (I write this Saturday), no luck, well.... I don't know? Request credit on Credit Card I guess.

*I tried it the next day and it worked.*

Hope this goes the same with you guys, and just keep in mind it was the first day of release of ArmA for Sprocket =) .

Hi, I bought the Czech Version of ArmA, and installed it sucessfully with the Serial provided by Sprocket. I could join most servers perfectly fine, until I got to certain servers that gives me an "Invalid CD Key" when Connecting...

Anyone know if this is a Server setting for certain versions of the game (Lang or Version) or is my cd key that is bugged?

Sorry, to bother you people about this but..

I think I have tried everything.

So far I'm about at 400 attempts over a 24 hour period.

- Uninstalled my spyware programs.

- Turned off antivirus

- Turned off Firewall

-DMZ this computer through router

Emailed support @ Idea and Sprocket several times. (no reply yet)

Any educated suggestions?

The serial number is sent in the email from sprocket. I got my email from sprocket within a few seconds of making my purchase.

I dnlded Czech version from Sprocket (Firewall and Anti-Virus ON), installed the game, immedieatly installed the english fix...wha-la...game is great and in english. A few Czech news announcers are in Czech, but it's translated into english on bottom of screen. All in all, I don't see why anyone else is waiting. CDN is getting pretty pissed at his issue..specially since 3 others in our group are playing, and our server will be online soon.

I opened every port (Just to try start download) to the internet still no luck.

I got the download to work easily with sprocket, about midnight last night, however i NEVER RECIEVED a CD Key in an email or a page to retrive it from. I sent an email to sprocket and softwrap, but support@softwrap.com just returns your messages as it is.

Can someone tell me how they recived their key from sprocket?

I got an email from sales@softwrap.com with a License Holder name and Purchase Reference, which contained the download link for my sprocket.exe, but contained no CD Key.

Aftermath

I have tried differnt times.

Anyhow, the email contained about 3 or 4 lines down in the email, it should say:

"When you run the setup, you will be prompted to enter your ArmA serial number:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

Ah... hmm. Dont have any emails like that. I just sent and email to arma@idea-games.com and got an autoreply that is in Czech, I cant read it but translated small bits of it. Said something to the effect of : Database problems at sprocket/people not receiving cd keys, gave me a ticket id. Heres the whole reply if anyone wants to translate:

Some characters wouldnt display in the forum, so I placed it in a text file on my website: ArmA@idea-games.com's Reply

Aftermath

A couple lines above the "License Holder name and Purchase Reference numbers" should be the serial number?

Humm, by the way my auto reply from idea # was 140?

I recieved one email from sales@softwrap.com. Between the download link and the License Holder/Purchaser reference stuff is this line:

When you run the setup, you will be prompted to enter your ArmA serial number: XXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

Well I'm totally burnt out trying to get this download started. banghead.gif

I wish I was in Aftermath's shoes (he has the download) and maybe he wishes he was in mine (I have the CD.Key)

This really sucks a whole weekend shot trying to download!!!! banghead.gif

I wonder if my interest in this game will override the feelings I'm having right now?

I am so close to venting  band.gif .
