CD Key Check Disable?
« on: September 27, 2013, 09:10:40 PM »
Hey there! I set up my MWLL through the all in one installer that's available now. I launched a dedicated server and then tried to connect to it through the game, only to get kicked over and over because I generated a random serial during installation. I could, however, connect to the official MWLL Training Server. How do I disable key authentication on my dedi?

The only values I could find in the server .cfg that might pertain are these, and they already appear to be disabled:

net_pb_sv_enable false
sv_cheatprotection=0

Thanks in advance!

You need to block port 29910 (UDP). Its the one that deals with the key authentication stuff. If its unable it lets any key pass.
Tools and I:
   - MWLL Online Launcher (LAN UDP Forwarder) - evolution of past "Le Proof of Concepto" project: connect without Gamespy via packet redirection;
   - Vehicle Browser - "Pocket Wiki" ©okaolias (not really that though);
   - Rconnect 4.3 - Server tools: map manager/player voting add-ons;
   - CryHammer - Validates Patch/CDKey of Crysis Wars (now unable to validate CDKey due to turned off Gamespy servers).

Doesn't seem to work for me. The other pc with Wars trial and mwll still cannot connect.

It's actually the server that needs to do that. The Funbocks servers for instance should work ok for you.

I blocked the 29910 with the firewall settings on one of the PCs at home that is running the server, though the second one running Trial+MWLL still cannot connect with the same Authentication failed (3) error.

EDIT

I have actually created a new rule for CrysisDedicatedServer to become inaccesible through the 29910 udp. I must be doing something wrong, but this shit is so convoluted, it makes me sick.

EDIT

And yeh, Funbocks works fine but I hate the map selection and badly want to run my own.

Alongside forwarding your ports; in your server console or the config/autoexec:

con_restricted 0
sv_cheatprotection 0

Weird, blocking 29910 udp should had worked.

   - MWLL Online Launcher (LAN UDP Forwarder) - evolution of past "Le Proof of Concepto" project: connect without Gamespy via packet redirection;
   - Vehicle Browser - "Pocket Wiki" ©okaolias (not really that though);

It's been set all the time.

What firewall are you using with whom this hack works?

Either blocking in the router or a software firewall should work. I use KIS. Free ones, I think I've used ZoneAlarm in the past.

Tried it with both Comodo and Windows built-in, to no result.

Well, makes no sense to me.

Cheers for the link. I had the "In" option selected, but apparently and counter-intuitively it's the "out" that has to be blocked. Thanks again.
