Gish keycode lost
« on: January 03, 2007, 01:02:03 AM »
It can only be set to windowed after it is registered. Maybe setting byte 24 (yes, that's a hexadecimal address) of gish.cfg to 0 helps, but I don't think it will make the situation any better if you don't have an old file to base it on. I can post a 'clean' gish.cfg (as Gish creates it when it doesn't find anything) modified to run in a small window if all else fails.
I rarely check this forum anymore. Feel free to send me a PM if you want my attention.

Gish keycode lost

Well, heres the story in short-form. I also hope I'm posting this in the right place..

My family and I were going to Oregon for vacation, and our car was broken into overnight when we stayed at a motel. I lost my laptop, which had gish on it, and had the keycode stupidly taped to the bottom of it. Or maybe I did something else with the code, but the point is its lost. Is there a way to get it back, or am I going to have to buy gish again? And if i do get the code back, where can I re-download gish?
When I bought gish I had the keycode sent to my mom's email adress, and since then the folder she had the email in was deleted somehow.
I had my mom search all of her emails for it, and I searched all mine (I might have sent it to myself for backup), but we didn't find anything. While searching through my sent emails today I did find the order number though. Would that help in getting back the keycode?

I just hope theres a way to get it back. I feel really stupid for not saving it in a good place...

There is an easy way to get all registration info and another download if you have access to e-mail received at the address at which Gish was registered. Otherwise you can try support. Someone from CL does check this forum once in a while, but I suppose conversations about keycodes are going to be private anyway.

Thanks so much, I didn't expect a reply that quickly. I have yet to try this, as my mom's email was changed, but hopefully the email will be forwarded to her new email. I'm very glad I can get it back, thanks again!

EDIT: Okay, great, I got the keycode back, and downloaded gish. But now I've got another problem. When I try to register gish, I type in the keycode, then it goes to the screen that says "connecting..." and seems to freeze my computer. I waited about 10-15 minutes with it like that and nothing seemed to happen. It wouldn't respond to Ctrl-Alt-Delete, either. Its very strange. If theres no solution to this then I can always register using the offline option, but if this is possible to fix easily, then I'd rather register online.
Thanks again!

Try running it in a window before you do it... there may be an error message or something which you couldn't see in fullscreen... I think that happened to me... where my firewall message was coming up saying do you want to allow this program and I couldn't see it and it looked like it was crashed '<img'> Try that and I hope it works '<img'> even though you've probably done it offline by now...

If you are having a problem with the normal registration using the offline might be your best bet.  Also make sure you don't have any firewall software that would block the registration.  I can also give you a clean gish.cfg which will put you in windowed mode so you can see what is happening.

Also feel free to contact support if you need it, we check the e-mail contantly during normal business hours and then some.

Note to self:  Make Gish start in windowed mode for registration in next patch.

This topic will be moved to the Gish support section!

Ah, thanks for moving it. I couldn't decide where to put it, and because the main topic was that I lost the keycode, I didn't think that was a technical problem. But I guess now it kind of is...

Anyways, thanks guys! I really apreciate the help! I eventually just decided to use the offline registration, and it worked fine. I still have no idea what caused the freezing, but it was most likely my firewall. Everything is working fine now, so thanks again!

And your saying theres going to be a... Next Patch? Oh yay! I've been hoping for a new patch sometime.

Don't hold your breath. It's likely that he meant potential next patch.
