Unable to login to game servers

Post by b105.c » Sat Jul 24, 2010 12:05 pm

Hi

I have tried logging in using [email protected] and password but I get an error message

Login failed, reason: Local user [email protected] not found.

What am I doing wrong ?

try again, it will work now. you were not in the database cause you didnt logout/login here so it can recognize you. you reach the same effect if you make a post here. this is what you have done now.

Post the exact steps you attempted. The error message "Local user not found" means the server is not even contacting the forums.

Ive tried typing /login at the Say: prompt and in the popup login menu I entered [email protected] at the username entry line and my forum password at the password entry line, press enter and then get the error message
The error message "Local user not found" means the server is not even contacting the forums.
maybe a server bug then ?

1. Go to “Player Setup → Player 1 Settings → Global ID”, and fill in your Global ID.
1a. Optional: turn on Auto Login
2. Join a server, and go to the menu and select “Authentication” (this will happen automatically if you turned on Auto Login)
3. Type in your password

When you use just plain “/login” the server assumes you want to log in with a local account, and that's not a bug. If you don't want to use the menu item, type “/login [email protected]”.

I dont have the global ID on my armagetron but I did get it working thanks

the /login [email protected] followed by b105.c and password seems to work although it does remove the color code in my name between b105 and .c but not a problem really

Thanks for your help.

try updating your game client from 0.2.8.2.1 to 0.2.8.3.1 and all the renaming goes away and then you also have that gid field

That rumor has to die. You don't have to spam the forums to log in to the game. Find whoever told you that and tell him that.

On which server? I sure hope it's not in our supplied /help topics.
