Maybe you can help me (Multiplayer trouble) ...

Greetings people ...

... after a longer rvs break (real matters), did i had installed rvs again, patched it to 1.60 and tried to join multiplayer server lobby ... but a following issue makes me crazy, ALLWAYS if i entered my account data and click "green button", the game freeze a short period of time, then nothing happens. i was looking ubi forum, only what i found is todo some changes in gsrouter.dat, i tried to create a new account, i don't use any firewall, i don't have an router, my net is "free on all ports", its the first time who i have trouble rvs all other games works and in silent hunter 3 i can use my ubi account without any issues.

... i know you guys are no tech support *laughs*, but maybee someone knows about this issue and can help me. that would be great, thank you!

... and something do i not understand too ...

i told i had made changes to gsrouter.dat, after a "TRY" to connect it would be automaticly restored to this value:

[Servers]
RouterIP0=gsarouter02.gs.mdc.ubisoft.com
RouterPort0=40000
RouterLauncherPort0=40005
CDKeyServerIP0=gsxcdkey02.gs.mdc.ubisoft.com
CDKeyServerPort0=44000
CDKeyServerIP1=gsxcdkey01.gs.mdc.ubisoft.com
CDKeyServerPort1=44000

i pinged the dns names and gsarouter2 answers well, but gsxcdkey01/02 not.

help me me before tangos capture more hostages Lol

The UBIsoft.com game server is down. It's not you. Relax, play offline and keep checking.

Yep, when I started having that problem and finally got over it I was met with this one..

Game starts and about 15 seconds I get the message saying the server was unable to connect with CD Key Server - Back to square 2.
It may be a pure coincidence but I've noticed that if I've no internet browsers or other network activity running (Boinc, Xfire etc.) then I only have to get through that final hurdle. Averages at about ten attempts then you're in. Note to self : Disable Xfire when playing RvS with dodgy Ubi.com Servers. Yup, that's right my game crashed because of Xfire. Sad

Dont feel bad there Malty, mine just locks completely, zap and I have to turn it all off and start all over.

Well, I think that this is a permanent work around square one.
(Might be pure coincidence again tho)
Before starting RvS go to systems folder, find the gsrouter.dat file, duplicate the original for safe keeping and then copy and paste this into the .dat file replacing the existing text.

[Servers]
RouterIP0=gsrouter2.ubisoft.com
RouterPort0=40000
RouterLauncherPort0=40005
RouterIP1=gsrouter1.ubisoft.com
RouterPort1=40000
RouterLauncherPort1=40005
CDKeyServerIP0=gscdkey.ubisoft.com
CDKeyServerPort0=44000

Found this via google seems to work.

If you just rename the original for backup and launch RvS, it will get a new gsrouters.dat file itself.

OK, it works for now, Spidey sends me his .dat file and then i paste new text in this file and it works.

Spidey .dat file: http://rapidshare.com/files/366374900/GSRouters.dat.html

Text to replace:

[Servers]
RouterIP0=gsrouter2.ubisoft.com
RouterPort0=40000
RouterLauncherPort0=40005
RouterIP1=gsrouter1.ubisoft.com
RouterPort1=40000
RouterLauncherPort1=40005
CDKeyServerIP0=gscdkey.ubisoft.com
CDKeyServerPort0=44000

In my humble opinion, the problems lay with the servers used whenever we login.

Not our computers ^_^

I found that I have to turn Xfire off completely and I have to start TS AFTER I am already on the UBIsoft Server list (or in game) by alt-tab-ing out. That is, of course, assuming UBIsoft server is even working correctly. For that SOMETIMES logging out then in works or, as others have said, try, try again.

Where is the justice? Why some people can play and others do not?

As an old friend might say, time to sacrifice burnt offerings to appease the vile ubi-deities that guard entrance to the server list!

Bajorg, sometimes it is an issue of the user's particular hardware/software combination. Some computers could play RAINBOW SIX on Windows 2000 OSbut most could not. Nobody knows why.

BTW I don't buy any STEAM products because I know they will be useless if they go out of business and shut down their servers. I play my games for years. I still have the original CIVILIZATION and SETTLERS and AGE OF RIFLES. Good games are good forever. I have a game I bought in 1960 that I occasionally play.

Well, it seems my luck has finally run out. I'm now no longer able connect. Sad Servers keep kicking me after the fifteen seconds because they are unable to verify CD Key.

I repeat, game works for me now, we'll see later.

Once Ubi has finished doing what they're doing, we should get steady RvS again.
