this never happened to me on the previous version, but ever since i got 1.6 about 50% of the time i join a game this pops up "sorry,the authentication servers seem to be down right now,please try again later". whats this suppose to mean and how can i fix it?!?!:mad:
maybe if you download the right patch... 1.7 :) and by the way...everyone gets that now and again.
it doesnt happen just one in a while its all the time. never had this problem with the other version. i dont wanna get 1.7 i dont like the sounds of the bridge se.
Same problem for me happens all the time
hope they fix it soon
try reinstalling 1.7
Ok.. you guys are morons(j/kin)... But really... This a has been an issue for over a month and a half and its still in the forums... Its a problem with the Authentication servers and its not server side. Its Client(Our computer) side. They are trying to figure it out. It wont be fixed untill AFTER E3(may 13-16). Untill then we have to deal with it... And the Friendly weapon bug... No matter how many times you reinstall its not going to help.
Here is part of what Abraxas said...
We've been working closely with Homelan to determine what the problem is with the Auth Servers. As it turns out, we believe that there is a code issue that was introduced during the merge to the latest version of the engine released with 1.6. We're working now to isolate the problem and hopefully after E3 we can provide a solution that will make it go away for good. In the mean time, the engineers at Homelan are looking into a possible band-aid as a temporary fix until we can provide a more permanent solution. We do apologize for the problem, and ask that you all bear with us as we try to resolve it.
I got this from Militarysim.com
just glad to know its not just me with this problem
Yeah, I get it about 50% of the time too. Especially when I'm playing at school and have 3 hours in between classes and can't join a server pisses me off, or time in between class and work.
Well whenever i get the message "authentication blah blah blah" i just reconnect a couple-a few times and it's all good.
LOL i dont have that bug!
