I'm now getting the dreaded invalid CD key thing for a game I paid good money for.

And I'm not alone...

There are too many other fish in the sea. I'm /not/ reloading Windows just to play a game I was kind of sucking at anyway.

If Epic isn't careful, this will kill their UT franchise faster than any competing product.

I had this issue and I just re-entered the cdkey and voila... (but I don't recall it saying invalid, it just looked for the cdkey when the UT3 red screen appears) this one guy on that link states he re-installs 4x FAILS, and buys a new copy enters that cdkey FAILS... this is rediculous imo. Okay I can see something along the line of his own cdkey still fubar'd after he reinstalls cause then it's Epics side, BUT to buy a new copy and get the same thing immediately just don't cut it with me.
What is actually happening with your copy? Did you re-enter the key like I did? With no problems? Cause it's happened to me several times, between a couple re-installs for other reasons outside of UT3. I see it as annoying but it's not going to affect my playing.

I wonder if it's a hardware problem?

I wonder if these keys are hitting the database from peeps with keygens and for some stupid reason the database is banning them even if they already have been registered...... Confused


Nope can't be cause it's the first check on the key, before the front end screen.... duh....

Bluto sent me a msg about somebody reverting to non-beta drivers, and that worked. However, I hadn't updated to beta drivers, so it wasn't that.

At least, not specifically.

However, it was worth a shot, so I /did/ load the latest beta drivers, and whaddya know? It worked.

However, when I got in, the servers were pretty much deserted, so I went off and played COD4, where I don't have any trouble hitting people, and where I don't have to jump through any hoops in order to play. (Phy, Major, level 34 of 55, if you need me.)

Yeah, I'm hoping the UT community will build back over the next year and not crumble, we'll see how it goes.
