When I create a company password in a multiplayer game, I can't join it on another computer because it says "incorrect password". Even when I'm 100% sure that I typed in the password right.
This task depends upon

I can't reproduce this. It works perfectly fine for me. Given the lack of other people complaining

The things I can think of that have happened:
- the server owner changed the password
- someone else changed the password
- caps lock or similar was turned on when entering the password (either when setting or when joining)
- a typo has been made (either when setting or when joining)

first off... thank you for your very prompt investigation into this matter. I was afraid that this project might be nearly dead. Anyway, I'm posting some pics of what's happening to make it a little easier to see what my problem is.

- I'm the Server Owner
- I owned the company on my desktop
- No-one else had the password
- Caps lock was off
- no typos.

Would newGRF have anything to do with this problem? I'm only running a couple vehicle mods, and some of the ECS mods.

Thanks for your time.

  • Field changed: Status (Unreproducable → Confirmed)
Broken in r21854.

It is reproducible when the server is not dedicated and the password is set on the server.
