Thread: VALID Steam keys are showing up INVALID

  1. #1

    Unhappy VALID Steam keys are showing up INVALID

    I tried registering my new purchase of Magicka. I know about entering the key in xxxx-xxxx etc mode with the last digit being left out. Problem is, I bought the complete Magicka pack, and when I attempt to register with the key entered as you guys describe it, I am still getting INVALID key. I have checked and rechecked many times and I get the same problem.
    PLEASE fix this.

    I alerted the authorities, let's see what the problem is. It's not the first time that Steam and Paradox forum keys don't like each other...

    EDIT: there is a thread on this in the Forum Help section, but it seems there is no solution there yet... http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...ka-Key-Invalid.

    Did you drop the last key? Steam still gives 25-digit keys, I believe.

    I had it to before yesterday (i bougth it sunday)
    Today it worked to enter ... maybe there was some latency from steam to transmet the code range used ...
    or it was minuscules ... today i tryed with minuscules and it worked ... one way or another, give it a try all of you who hade no key worked

    I figured this one out, the way STEAM splits the product key up is invalid. You need to make sure you are splitting it up 4 Alphanumeric numbers at a time. Steam has 5 alphanumeric characters per hyphen so the key goes in wrong on the web site here. So reconfigure the key in 4 each and plug it in like that and remember to drop the last letter/number.
