Hi

I am aware that this forum probably wont help cause the real forum and support are on the Salem site but I still want to try.

I got a beta key on Thursday and registered.
I created an account (Nickname, password,email and beta key I received via mail and activated my account by clicking the given link) and it gave me the message:

"Registration in progress

An e-mail has been sent to the address that you specified. As soon as it arrives, please follow the instructions contained therein to complete your registration."

Now I was waiting for that email for half an hour (despite my friends being able to register within 5 minutes) and then switched my PC off for 3 days. When I came back the registration mail was still not there and I decided to try registering again. When that failed I deleted my account several times and recieved new keys (luckily there were about 120 available at that time) all with the same result that my registration simply does not finish. Theoretically I should be able to log-in after this step.

I have checked everything, no typos nothing is wrong with my input (copy pasted the key. typed it in manually everything) and no error messages with my Nickname etc.

When I want to reset the password for the account there is no account with that name registered.

Now all I need is some sort of advice on how to fix my problem or maybe an email address for the Salem tech support (which I believe does not exist outside the Salem forums on which I cannot log-in due to the error described above)

any help is appreciated

Your beta key still works as you never completed the registration.

Moo,

The Salem client download scared my PC...and myself...warning me of serious security vulnerability, or something to that effect, if I installed that Salem client.

Why and what now? :(

There's been some issues with a couple of security software programs giving these warnings and even one case of not letting users bypass security on it. You should be able to ignore or bypass these warnings if you choose to trust the publisher. Some of them will come up every single time you run any sort of Java program, and Java has its own set of warnings.

The link was sent to my email address from <noreply@beta.salemthegame.com>

It read: In order to experience the New World you need to [download the Salem Client] and make sure you have Java installed.

That which is in brackets is: http://email.salemthegame.com/wf/cl...awGe4AL2LxUI9Fr4NGWDqI-2FLe7dlbitvnzAFl5p7qOp

I use ZoneAlarm Internet Security. Are all beta clients THAT intrusive that the IS is triggered to the max? I had never seen a warning like that ever in my PC/Mac history.

But should I trust it? :unsure:

I was under the assumption that the invitation for beta was only from one source. Are various sources giving them out? The link to download client was actually sent to my email following the link for beta access that was provided at twitch.com. http://de.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive/b/340355665 That twitch link was provided here in Paradox forums in the "all your questions answered for CKII's Aztec Invasion DLC," the next feed below that one was the Salem beta key giveaway countdown.

Hmmmm. :blink: Lemme guess, that was not your link on twitch.com?

Sorry for the delay in the reply. I've not heard of any issues with Zone Alarm and Salem before, but I can't rule it out, either. You can always get the official client after you register your beta key on the "Account" page at salemgame.com.

Wish I could show the image I get when I go to install client from salem.com

Looks like it is java related and not ZA.

"To install at own risk" ?



I'm afraid.
I'm afraid, Dave.
Dave, I'm afraid.
