Login Difficulties

I don't know if this was addressed elsewhere, but every time I come to the site to play the beta, my password is denied. I've had to send multiple password resets to my e-mail just so I can access the site. Each time I change the password, and each time I come back the password is denied.Any thoughts?

Does it say "Password denied" when you click on the beta button in the "games" tab? I mean, for me i can play the game as long as im logged into the forums :)have sent an email to dcfedor about it, but understandable enough hes a busy man (with the game the forum and so on) so give or take a couple of days and it should hopefully be fixed, im sorry for the inconvenience but if thats the things with pre-release games and if it helps hopefully this will help people in the future with the same problem :)

Hey Tieranus,I sent an email to the address I have on file for you. Let's see if we can sort it out there!

I have the same issue, and I suspect it has something to do with the excessively restrictive requirements of the password strength checker. Perhaps allowing passwords that don't require Uppercase, lowercase, puncuation and numerals would solve this problem.

Hey Twistedinc!

You can actually use whatever password you'd like. The only requirements are that the password and re-type password fields match. So you can omit upper/lower, number, and punctuation if you prefer. The warnings will still appear, but it won't prevent you from saving the new password.

The warnings are just a default behavior for the CMS I use, since I didn't want to mess with writing my own account management code :)

As for the login issues, it looks like your username was entered incorrectly on the times your login failed. I'll email you more details, just to avoid sharing your login info here on the forum.
