This is weird. I have generated a license file properly, and the application opens properly, however the site does not validate that my file is correct. What am I missing?

Make sure you use your HTS Nick in your license file.

In case you already do that, just file yet another bug report for that.
The PHP verification part is bugged, since it cannot work the exact same way as the App itself does.
Not to mention that the app is also bugged, not taking a Nick like "BhaaL" in either way.

Yeah.. I'm using the nick "DrakierD" as my license nickname, and I have generated a license file that is properly opened within the application, and the application loads properly. The website just won't validate it however.

I've filed a bug report on it.

Yeah I just completed it too. The executable accepts it and works just fine, but the site tells me it's invalid. :P I'm about to submit a bug report too I guess. Would anyone that's beaten it or a mod/dev like to look at my license to make sure it's right? I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything wrong, but it's always possible.

I dont think looking at the license would help anything (except when NQ did it probably).
The App is flawed, and so is the uploading form. So you should be happy if even one of the two works for you :P

This should be fixed the next time the dev site is pushed to live (though, I can't test it since my nick works fine).

The nick "BhaaL" is a problem for sure, and so might be others from this thread.
I could try to change my keygen to find a few of those problematic nicks, if you need some samples.

Alright, Application 18 (both the app, and web portion) have been completely fixed, and are now working as intended. :D

I'm still having issues with this challenge.

I got the new app18 exe file, and found what was changed and adjusted my gen to match. I once again can open the program, but cannot use the generated file to LevelUp!

The Application opens fine with no modifications to the program itself. I assume that means the license file is valid. Why will the Website not accept my license?
