The good news is there is a simple fix.
When you enter your cd key (yes, I know, again
) make sure your caps lock is OFF. Use shift to put in the upper case letters, but remember NOT to make the numerals upper case. I know, upper case numerals don't exist, but there's some strange gremlin that makes the GameSpy lobby think that they do.
For those trying to install Medieval Total War, remember that if you are logging in with Viking Invasion installed, your old key will not work; there is a new CD key on your VI case you need to look at. The last tip is the one error you won't admit to making. An "O" is round when printed on the CD key, while a zero has straight sides. "0" Say it with me now:
"0" is a zero,
"O" is a letter.
- Do type the hyphens
- Don't type spaces
In the case of Rome Total War and Medieval 2 Total War, if you simply cannot get the right CD-Key working, read the post in the link below. If you live in North or South America and provide proof of purchase, an updated CD-Key [maybe for a Steam version] should be provided for you. It is unknown if this applies to people outside the Americas.
This should be a last resort, as SEGA is not guaranteed to give you a new key!!!
