When you host a LAN server, and when you try to join it, your game will prompt you for a CD Key. What do you do if you lost your CD key? Well, see the tutorial below which will help you bypass the LAN server serial key check and you can start playing right away with your LAN buddies!
1.) Open My Computer and go to your RavenShield\system directory.
2.) Open the GSRouters.dat file with Notepad.
3.) Change the line “CDKeyServerIP0=gscdkey-mtl1.ubisoft.com” to:
4.) Save and close GSRouters.dat.
5.) Open the RavenShield.ini file in the same directory.
6.) Browse to the line that starts with “m_szUbiRemFileURL” – it is about 6/10 of the way down, under the [R6GameService.R6GSServers] section.
7.) Change this line to:
8.) Save and close RavenShield.ini.
9.) CDKey check is now disabled (when it asks for a cdkey, just click the check mark, and wait 10 seconds and u will be joining the server. Now you can play real LAN, Tunngle, Hamachi, or whatever method you choose.
9-26-09: Initial release
1-1-10: Added more hints. Removed youtube video until I upload the new one.
4-8-11: Added dropbox link. Added video tutorial!
11-25-12: Rewrote the whole guide, added new video link. All discussion about Chinese program is removed
When I initially wrote this blog post, I had a tutorial referencing a Chinese program that allowed you to play 1vs1. The problem with that program was that it was not stable, and it wouldn’t work right all the time.
Since 2009, I have found a GFWL keygen file that allows you to take various GFWL games and play them online. Rather than go through all the steps, everything that you need to know is at the Pastebin link below, and I have also pasted my youtube video as well. Enjoy!
