Password Fix

Postby techmarine5 » Sat Nov 19, 2016 1:35 am

If it doesn't like your password, it's likely because of it having special characters in it. If so, removing them will cause it to work. The special characters are @#$_&-+()/\%*"':;!?~`|•√π÷׶∆£¢€¥^°={}±≤≥≠©®™[]℅, although most of those can't be typed on a normal keyboard.

I've seen similar problems before. It depends upon what is doing the password checking.

Alright, I have a password with special character since alpha started and now I can't login. I changed my password without special character and still can not login. Invalid password.

The connectivity issue with the server is getting worse by the day.

it appears that the authentification servers have some troubles right now.
I aswell had punctuation in my password and could always log in fine (besides a few single failures which i assumed were because of typos)
But after i once again lost connection while trying discovery mode, i was unable to log in again due to wrong pass.
I did change my password aswell to test, and still cant get in.

i have just finished the download and started the game ,
i had a 20 minute wait for the game to initialize,
the hardest part was not knowing what was happening ,
and then finally i try to log in , it wont accept my password ,
:L typed my email into the username spot for attempt 2 , no good.
then i type my username back in , then retyped the password , and then instead of hitting go or login i clicked elsewhere so i was no longer typing into the password box ,
then like magic it accepted my password ,

it seems thepassword box will submit a blank password entry if you do not click elsewhere and finish editing the text field ,

thanks!

ps a loading bar for initialization would be awesome! ,
also one more thing , the graphics are set too high on default , the reason initialization took so long , it was only after i lagged my way to options and lowered them did the speed of ...everything go back to normal
Just a Guy... :lol:
