View Full Version : Your CD key is not Authorized
02-02-2006, 04:59 PM
I have not had this happen before and I was capable for playing online for a good 3 months or so.
I bought the game from wal-mart and everything worked great as said before for the first 3 months. However now the multiplayer says that my CD key is not authorized to play that server.
It says this on all servers.
Help would be appreaciated since this is very frustrating.

simple, Either the game is bugged, or some one is using your CD key (EG, someoen elso using your game) or someone has changed their CD key and it happens to be yours.

Run CDKey.exe in your [Game Directory]/Install folder and type in your cd key again. It might help.

I always used to play on a particular dedicated server, but for some reason now I get this message:
Your CD key is not authorized to play this game.
Does anyone know why I keep getting this message? Please help!

did u do something that was against the rules? and what server was it? u will probably be un banned in 3 days-1 week's time. what the message means is that ur cd key code was banned from the server
07-16-2006, 03:11 PM
what do u mean by 'taking instead of me' do u mean tk'ing?
and all that stuff you guys have said havent happed to me so im lucky!!!!!!
07-16-2006, 07:52 PM
I din't do anything against the rules. But before this happened some guy came into the game and started talking instead of me, saying bad things. It seemed like i was chatting, but i wasn't. Have you ever encountered anything like that?
Maybe /i was banned because of him?

It was a pc dedicated server called Rent: . Version 1.0 of the game
07-16-2006, 07:54 PM
you know when you say stmh. when playing the line goes:
Dark Master: hello
So, he was talking instead of me like that.
07-17-2006, 07:09 AM
maybe the guy was an admin or had x fire to talk to one?

I'm having the same problem but I have clues as to why it happened. I was playing Battlefront II in a Mos Eisley server. I discovered using force push to knock people over and then run at them with my light saber. I was pretty much unstoppable until I was booted from the system. I was doing the same thing today and got booted but when I try to get back in it says my cd key is not authorized. I wasn't breaking any rules i was just very good. Why can I play other servers if my CD key is invalid? someone forced me out on purpose. Could this have been the case for anyone else?

Someone banned you from that server. Probably for force spamming/noobing. I personally don't blame them. They ban your CD key. You'd have to either get a new key or a whole new game to play on that server.
10-18-2008, 05:29 PM
Youre 100% at fault for the ban if you were using force. Almost all HA servers are no force and clearly state it.

:confused: After being banned from the noobgrinder server (for no reason) i went to a random PC server and got the same message.
12-26-2008, 05:20 PM
Did you do anything illegal? For example, use any sort of crack?
And you weren't banned for no reason. NoobGrinder is a NO FORCE SERVER.
12-28-2008, 05:13 PM
I did not. i have used noobgrinder for a while and followed the rules. The only thing i did different than usual is that i jumped onto a platform as i was dueling someone.
also on the noobgrinder server the admin will say what a person in banned for, ex: |Admin:"player 1 booted for using force"| this did not happen to me there was no message
And i am not allowed crack in my padded room

By crack, I meant "play the game without a CD," not "using drugs." Or maybe I just misinterpreted the "I am not allowed crack" statement.
