Wrong password?

Advertise new games, look for games to join, find subs or replacements.

Forum rules
To join a game listed here (unless it needs a password) just go to "Join Games" and input the information.
If you are advertising any game with Anonymous Players (including Gunboat and PPO) you should use the Dolph Shtoss account using the password anonymous. DO NOT CHANGE THIS PASSWORD.
When advertising for replacement players please make it clear whether permanent replacement or temporary substitute
- adverts should not tell a substitute what actions you want them to take (posts will be subject to editing);
- adverts MUST NOT offer an incentive to join the game (eg. a specific alliance) OR suggest certain actions when joining a game (posts will be subject to editing or removal and posters warned).
These are considered meta-gaming by using the Forum to influence a game.

Wrong password?

Postby ThinEdge » 11 Aug 2018, 03:25

I have been trying to join games but now all of them require a password. I enter my account password and it ALWAYS says wrong password.
I entered the right password, as i log out and log back in, and no problems.
But every time i try and join a game, "Wrong password! Please try again!"
I have joined 3 games so far...no problems...but i can no longer seem to be able to join any new ones.
This makes me sad, as i was about to join as a Premium member... :(

What am i missing?

Hi ThinEdge!!!
People make password-protected games so that only people they tell the password to can join (for example, friends or Classicists) so when I’m looking for new games I usually just filter out the ones with passwords, along with protected games because the suck, and ambassador games because I can’t join those either.
You’re a great ally by the way. :)

Yeah, just to be clear, the password it asks you for when you join a game with a password is not your own login password. It is the password set by the game creator when they create the game.

Well, i have tried MY password and an anonymous one i found in the forms.

I just checked, but i see not obvious password for the game itself...and i did not need one before...for non-anonymous games, at least.

Games with passwords are meant so that only people who know the password can join. There are a bunch of non-password games. Maybe the reason you only see passworded games is because the most recently made ones are passworded. Here’s how you filter them out:

Not necessarily needed, but i do appreciate all who are helping. It is appreciated...and i think i found ONE game that does not have the Password issue...

But i still would like to join them and do not understand "WHAT" password i need...or why...or what is the question that is answered by "42"

The answer to the last one is the meaning of life.

You can’t join them, because they’re private games. I have no clue what the passwords are because I didn’t make them. Just filter them out, it’ll make life easier.

I’m on a phone, so I think that’s why it’s different. I think the “exclude games with password” option is above where you cut it off.

In the "Game Status" category, the bottom one says "Exclude Games needing a password." Click that.
