Got something new for once.
Normaly I always get "this server is for low pings only" error
But I just hit reconnect and all is fine.
But today it clamed that I have a invalid CD-Key.
How the hell can I have a invalid key with ET.
Its a free game and doesn't really NEED a key because it makes one up during
the game's instalation.

Weird huh.

The file containing the key probably got corrupted. Look in the ET main dir,
I think it's called etkey (I've not got ET on this PC atm, but in RtCW it's
called rtcwkey). Move the file somewhere else (never delete a file unless
you're sure it won't mess anything up!) and when you try to connect to a
server you should get a new key generated.
