I got some ugly bug, it could be called battle replay bug if the result of the battle was totally impossible to happen [even at extreme odds]. I guess we can do nothing about it though, so I will report it to llamabeast, so he can take a look and send it to Illwinter.

Correction: I just noticed I have *5* capitals now. My bad.

Default Re: KingMaker - let the Ascension War commence!

I have hit a bug serious enough that I am actually posting on this forum. While the first turn I performed with LA Arco went through fine and dandy with all of my orders and messages going out, the last two turns did not. Instead I got a message of:

"CD Key Violation"

with the message body of:

"Your CD key has been used on multiple installations. Your orders have not been executed."

While sort of technically true (in that I transferred Dominions completely from my desktop to my laptop when I retired my desk top two years back), that's not even relevant and shouldn't have been detected by the game. And if I happened to have the same key as another player by whatever chance, it would have flipped on the first turn, not the second.

Meaning that either the game has completely broken or someone hacked my position between me taking my first turn and me taking my second turn.

I'll turn over the position to whoever wants it, but I can make no guarantees that you will be allowed to take turns.

Needless to say, I do not check this forum on any regular basis, if you wish to contact me, do so by email.

3 things are odd about this -

First, trying to do a LAN game with the same CD key, all I got was "Stale Turn".

Second, Llamaserver doesn't show Arcos as staling.

And third, Llamaserver should post a warning stating exactly which nations submitted turns with identical CD keys - and we're not getting such a warning.....

Hmm... if Xietor was playing he'd say so. Llamabeast is away, so contacting Hadrian, game admin, sounds like an only solution [and if situation needs it, I think no one will object postponing it till 7/8th, it would be just 1-2 days].

I no longer get the turns, and have not submitted a turn since I got a sub.

The same thing happened to me when I subbed for a game about a month ago. First turn was ok, second or third turn there was a message about duplicate CD keys. But the succeeding turns after there were no problems. I would suggest just continuing on with it. Probably just a bug.

Frank's problem is my fault. I was living at his house when my computer blew up AND I had lost my copy of Dominions. He had it on a thumb drive so I put it back on my computer.

I forgot to put my key back into the key file. I'll replace Frank's with mine and all should return to normal.

A lawyer is typically at the root of all of problems.

Which came first, the problem or the lawyer? Hmmmmm. This is a troubling and complex philosophical conundrum.....
