I've published a new version today (1.30.160 on Impulse). There are no changes to the game code, it's a networking-related update for web services.

Quoting _SaV_,
I just tried it out... Still not working... But thx for idea.

OK - Thanks for trying that out.  My only other thought would be to use all lowercase letters and numbers.  I doubt that makes a difference, but I have no idea.  Odds are the best thing to do would be to shoot an email to support@stardock.com and explain the issue.  Its just strange that some folks are having issues while others are not.  There's got to be some sort of logic involved that would explain why someone can login while someone else cannot. 

_SaV_ - what language version of demigod are you using?  Maybe the issue is tied to a version?  No idea...

pacov - do u have any idea who made this patch?

And no, I don't other than it Stardock.  GPG wouldn't be involved in a change to the security.  It's just obvious that its a security change based on the logs and how the pw comes up as many more characters after you enter it and save.  I'm guessing that impulsereactor performs encryption on the client side after you enter your password and then sends that SD where its likely unencrypted and used to log in.

Can't you?

Pacov isn't paid by sd and is trying to help as a friend to the community. If you want the problem fixed then send the email. If you are too lazy to do so then tough.

Quoting _SaV_,
So I did the following test:

I started DG in windowed mode and I opened my network connection to see how many packets have been sent. As I thought before - after entering a user/password and pressing "login" NO(!!!) packets were sent over my network connection. So it might be a software problem on client side.

pacov - do u have any idea who made this patch?

Hrmmm... if you are using windows firewall, try removing and re-adding it as allowable software.

No... I dont use a firewall at the moment. And the windows firewall is deactivated.

How is with logging into the impulse? As it is the same username/password are there any problems?

With password of all lower letters I doubt as I use mixed symbols (including capital letters) password and all worked fine.

By the way. First thing after update I did was - launched demigod through impulse. No ideas if this has any effect to this problem, but who knows... Also I use english version of game.

Glad to hear it

Quoting kilingspring,
What did you do?

The last post I saw from jonn (before this one) indicated that he was reinstalling dg.  Not sure if that fixed it for him or what he tried.  He only speaks a little english, so its a little hard to communicate with him. Suffice to say, either SD fixed something on their end or something Jonn tried worked.  I suppose you could go the worst case route and reinstall dg (if that's an option for you - but I have no real idea if that will work or not). 

The reason for shooting an email to support@stardock.com is that they have a tech support team that is often different from the folks that moderate and post news on the forums.  Anyway, shooting an email to support gets a ticket generated and adding to their pool, so you'll get a response from SD. 

And like doggu said - I don't work for SD.  Just trying to help out folks that are having problems with DG after the update get back to playing. 

 

Jonn_Spb_rus - Вы переустановить чтобы решить эту проблему

That's a very interesting detail (to me, anyway).  I wonder if if has to do with blocked ports.  I'm about out of ideas, but perhaps check your impulsereactoroptions.exe file and specify some ports.  You can find it:  C:\Program Files (x86)\Stardock Games\Demigod\bin\

Odds are that won't make a difference, but if you are stuck, might as well try.

dont know what to do anymore - i opened a support ticket now. i did a lot of things to fix it:

- choosing another username

- choosing another password

- restarting pc

- restarting router

- deleting all game data files

- reinstalling demigod

- changing ports in impulsereactoroptions.exe

- disabling of all firewall / av aplications

 

I am using the english version of DG on a german Version of winXP SP3. connection to router is a WLAN connection.

please let us know what happens with the ticket.  I'd imagine someone will look into it in the morning for you.  If I hear anything, I will let you know. 

edit - sorry this has been such a pain for you.  I'm quite confident that SD understands that there is a small player base here and that they will do whatever is needed to fix any issues caused by this patch.

FOUND A SOLUTION - AT LEAST FOR ME!!!!

I had to replace the patched ImpulseReactor.dll in the bin-directory of the game with an old one before the patch 1.30.160 was applied. it took quite a while to find that out.

So try out the folling steps if you ran into the same connection problems then i did:

  1. Rename the existing ImpulseReactor.dll file in your Demigod-bin-directory (e.g. C:\Programme\Stardock Games\Demigod\bin) into ImpulseReactor.dll_
  2. Download the old ImpulseReactor.dll from here.
  3. Copy the dll-file to your Demigod-bin-directory
  4. Have fun again!

Hope that will help some people...

We've reproduced the error in at least on test case and are looking into how to fix it. There'll be another update when that happens.
