Problems registering in OpenRa

Post by Turrican2k »

Inserting the registration key doesn't work for me in Linux Mint. I follow the instructions, copy the key, exit the game and try (right-click or ctrl&v) to paste the key. Without success! Copy&Paste appears in the game itself, if I use it e.g. in a chat in the server, just the sentence "---Begin Public Key---" and that's it! Nothing is carried over outside of the game.

What else to try?

Why is the process so cumbersome? Why not just log in with your forum password and nickname? The security concept is similar to that of cryptocurrencies, it is not necessary here in my opinion.

Did you try not closing the game, i.e. switching to an already opened browser window by ALT+TAB? That works for me on Mint as well as Manjaro.

Alternatively, you could run the game in windowed mode, if switching out of a fullscreen window does not work.

I see, OpenRa must not be terminated?! Ok, that worked now! Thank you.
