Post by Hiro-Dark » Tue Aug 23, 2016 2:06 pm

I know I must be doing something wrong, but I don't know what. I'm just trying to get the server emulator running so I can play solo, and I think that the .exe is connecting to the emulator, but no matter what I do it can't seem to log me into the custom profile(well, won't let me log in at all, I should say). Just keeps telling me "Invalid email, please log in with a valid email". And yes, I do have the profile in the right filepath, with a Local_Profile placed in the Documents/BioWare/Mass Effect 3/Save, I've patched it both automatically and by manually placing the dll-es in the right spot, activated redirection, running the server thingermajig as Admin...I'm pretty sure I've done everything it says in the how to, but no dice.

The only thing I can think of that might be causing problems it is I'm using the MP Controller Support mod, but all that does(as far as I know) is give the game a controller interface, not affect how it connects or anything. But I'd think if that was an issue it would've been mentioned before.

Personally, I only used the SP controller mod, but I don't believe the MP version is causing issues - Mgamerz or someone else would've already brought that up way earlier.

"Invalid email" means the name you used in ME3 login screen (email field) doesn't match any profiles stored on PSE's player dir.
Example:
- username: Hiro-Dark, password: 123. => You must have a Hiro-Dark.txt player file, and if you open it in Notepad, the fifth line must be "DSNM=Hiro-Dark".
If the file is named Hir0-Dark.txt and DSNM is "Hiro-Dark", you'll be unable to login as either "Hir0-Dark" or "Hiro-Dark".

Post the PSE log (please use the code tag for this).

I don't touch anything besides the interfaces, which for most UIs is just a change in the UI code saying its xbox not PC (does not have any impact on network code)

I figured that was how it worked, but that's the thing-I haven't modified the profile txts, I just created them with the appropriate username and password and then left them be. Like, I have a .txt called 'Hiro' with a DSNM=Hiro, but it never recognizes it when I use that login. I've opened the .txt just to check but I haven't modified it in any way.

So I take it nobody really has an idea of how to get it working? It's a shame if so, I'd really enjoy trying it out.

No.

It's a bigger shame when you tell people shit and people don't comply.

You're the one with the issue and I'm the one who maintains and updates PSE, so what possible reason do you have to not follow what I asked for?

(I'm not criticizing you personally, I'm criticizing your attitude. You're not the first one who acted like this towards me.)

My apologies, I didn't mean for it to come across as me having any sort of attitude, though I know it can be hard to properly convey how something is intended. I actually hadn't seen you asking for the PSE log in your post, which is my mistake, but my second post there was only meant to bump this topic up since it'd been two days(and I hadn't seen that you asked me to provide information, which is again my bad), and I had meant it entirely sincerely. Reading it back I...definitely understand how that came across as snippy though. Sorry again for that.

On the subject at hand, I'm assuming you're referring to this-

Nothing else, and I've tried accessing the multiplayer while its running, so if it's supposed to be saying anything else, well...It isn't.

If it at all helps, on a hunch I tried using the player data editor to open one of the .txts and for whatever reason it won't open them, even if I just created the .txt file with the PSE. Just says "Profile Error. Cannot open this file."

OK, so what I wrote back there:
"Invalid email" means the name you used in ME3 login screen (email field) doesn't match any profiles stored on PSE's player dir.
... is only valid when you actually connect to PSE.
Your log says the game isn't connecting to it, and the invalid email response can only come from EA in this case. Looks like your hosts file wasn't properly modified. It may be due to action of antivirus or firewall software (it's up to you to add PSE to their exceptions list).

You can use the shortcut keys F5 - Activate redirection, F6 - Deactivate redirection, F7 - Show (hosts) content. Open PSE, press F6, then press F5, and finally press F7.

Assuming your LAN IP is 192.168.1.169 (as seen in the log you posted), you should see this then:

Code: Select all

192.168.1.169 gosredirector.ea.com
192.168.1.169 383933-gosprapp396.ea.com
192.168.1.169 gosgvaprod-qos01.ea.com
192.168.1.169 gosiadprod-qos01.ea.com
192.168.1.169 gossjcprod-qos01.ea.com
192.168.1.169 reports.tools.gos.ea.com
192.168.1.169 waleu2.tools.gos.ea.com
192.168.1.169 me3.goscontent.ea.com
Just to confirm that there's nothing blocking PSE, you can open your web browser and type "192.168.1.169/test.txt" - there should be a message in PSE saying "test.txt not found" (the file really isn't there, but PSE was able to receive the request).

I'm assuming you're running PSE and ME3 on the same PC.

This is normal behavior. You didn't even connect to PSE yet, so there's no data to be edited in your profile.

Yeah, running them on the same PC. Strange thing is, it seems to be modifying the Hosts file just fine...The Show Content does show that all of those are added to the bottom, and after going to the "192.168.1.169/test.txt" page in my browser(well, trying to, there isn't exactly anything to load there) the PSE did actually show the error message in the log. No idea why ME3 still isn't redirecting to it though.

It looks like hosts is being ignored...

Keep the redirection active and do the browser test again, but this time use "gosredirector.ea.com/test.txt" and see if PSE still receives the request.
