[BETA] Steam authentication fix (Error while authenticating the user with steam)

Recommended Posts

This is an experimental mod, aimed at fixing an issues with steam authentication that causes users to be stuck with a bogus error "Error while authenticating the user with steam." and not being able to login until the server is restarted.

 

This is a server side mod, there is nothing you can do on client side to fix this.

 

This mod:

 

  1. Adds a workaround to one possible cause of this error. See here for more details.
  2. Adds additional logging for errors in the login handler, to help debug other potential errors not covered by 1.
  3. Adds logging of steam authentication status responses (to see if some errors are actually caused by steam, and not by bugs in wurm code)

 

Download and source code:https://github.com/bdew-wurm/steamfix/releases

 

Installation

  • Install Ago's Server Mod Loader
  • Download zip file
  • Extract zip file to your client folder

It looks like the bug this was meant to fix is now fixed in 1.0.0.3 official server.

 

Keeping the mod installed shouldn't cause any issues AFAIK, but it won't be doing anything useful.

No jar file? I get "  Retrying steam authentication"  very often and wonder if this will fix it..

Elsa, please read the forum post you are asking questions about. Bdew clearly states this is no longer useful, two years ago.

While this is annoying, it is completely unrelated to anything in this thread.
