stuck in update loop. not able to login

Post by obese pigeon »

Hi, im stuck in some kind of update loop.

1) When i login, it says my client is and invalid version and would i like to update now?
2) Clicking 'Yes' brings a very quick update.
3) Upon completion, I go back to the login dialog box. Logging in brings me back to (1)

When the injustice is great enough, Justice will lend me the strength needed to correct it.
None may stand against it.
It will shatter every barrier, sunder any shield, tear through any enchantment and lend its servant the power to pass sentence.
Know this: there is nothing on all the Planes that can stay the hand of justice when it is brought against them.
It may unmake armies. It may sunder the thrones of gods.
Know that for ALL who betray Justice, I am their fate... and fate carries an Executioner's Axe.

Did you delete the .bak before editing the config file?

I did not initially.

But after rereading Spork's post i did delete the .bak file before trying again.

Should i redownload the client?

That is not the url I posted. when it comes to web servers, accuracy counts.

If you control the java certificates, you can use https://www.mekwars.org/update

I had the same problem. In my mwconfig.txt the line UPDATEURL was missing.
I downloaded again the client and installed it. Now it says that my account is not registered.
Is it possible to recover my hangar, etc?
