Q3 cd key is good but PN "computer says no"?

Am I right in thinking (and please, someone correct me if this is not so) that the CD KEY AUTH is done by the ID Software servers rather than the server hosting the game? I've had problems in the past with a completely valid CD key that nobody else has had access to and it's confused me too.

Have you tried playing on other public servers with your CD key? For example any that you can find using The All Seeing Eye?

It may be a general issue rather than one with the PlusNet servers.

Regards

Simon

Tyr this
make shore you have Punkbuster turned on in the game
Make a shortcut to your quake3.exe and add this to it

+connect 212.159.6.211:27980

then run the shotcut

i.e
Mine looks like this

E:\Games\Quake1.32\quake3.exe +connect 212.159.6.211:27980

OR
run quake3 bring down the consol and type.. /connect 212.159.6.211:27980

You mite need to get the OSP mod as we are running OSP and PB
