ok ... i hope someone can help me here. I asked allmost everyone i know but no-one was able to help me.
Here's my problem:
when i click on a server to join it ... i get the message "invalid cd-key" But when i validate that key, the game says it's valid
now i tried lots of stuff, that includes * other keys * reinstalling the game * cleaning the register * ...
if anyone can solve my problem, please do so. I would be most gratefull.

is it a legal copy of the game?a legal key?if someone else is using the key then u are screwed if u are using a illegal key.
well those keys should work ... because i've played for about 4 to 5 months with them ...
i'm really getting desperate, i just completely removed the game ... cleaned the registry & reinstalled ... but still the same problem :confused:
Its not a valid game or cd-key then
it should work no problem after a re-install
(after un-install always clear the registry as well)
well ... today i have uninstalled the game & cleared the registry after a reinstall it still didn't work
now i have installed the 1.03 patch & i only can play on 1 server now... other wise i get "client unknown to author". anybody's got a solution for that?
man it seems like i was born for mis-fortune :(
have a read through there see if it helps ?
I am having the same problem using a legal game but it says my cd_key is invalid? I have not played in a couple of months b/c I had to rebuild my computer but SOF2 worked before. So, in any case, this may not be an issolated issue.
hey bro did u keep the original hard drive after u rebuilt your pc?if so was sof2 on it?if so u need to reinstall the game.for some reason it dont like when u o changing hardware behind its back.
yeah, I reinstalled everything (game + the three patches)...still not working though :-[
Now I am getting the unauthroized client address too, then the invalid cd_key...not really sure what is going on. I changed my OS to XP and I wonder if that might be part of the problem? Any suggestions anyone has please let me know.
ok, got it solved. I did the standard tricks...unintsalled everything (searched and eliminated all sof2 files)...reinstalled the game and the FULL GOLD patch and now everything is golden.
hope this helps anyone else who has this problem
