PAL Quake 3 arena authentication error

Post#1 » Sat May 09, 2020 5:39 pm

Hi all, sorry if this problem as been discussed, I try to find some topic about this but didn't found anything. I don't have any problem playing Pso or other games(don't have many to try :) sonics, chuchu rocket... But today for the 1st time I try to play quake 3 becouse I sow a guy on dcnow and I try to join to test the game. And the game does the dial up OK but on the final stage, the authentication fail. I read that before the pal quake 3 didn't work, but in 2016 I think a person successful found the way to pass the dream arena authentication... I'm using dreampi so in theory is automatically right? I set the dmz and the configuration on dreamplanet browser. So Any idea? Thanks

Hello!
did you set your DNS server to 46.101.91.123 ?
try to DMZ your Dreamcast in your router's settings (but im not sure it is about it)

Just to update the post to say that I cannot connect to the PAL release of Q3A aswell. However, this is purely a problem on the Server's end :

I tried to host myself a dreamarena authentification server, and it worked.

Thanks, and it does work.

By chance, could you explain what went wrong?

Think the server provider did maintenance and somehow the software didnt restart.
