Resolved M&B 1.011 activated game relegated to trial version + serial key activation issue

Good morning,

Setup:
- 1.011 enchanced installer
- cd key from disc version
- the last install is at least two months old

Issue:
- upon starting the game (all separate copies. I have several because of mods) I get "game is currently running in trial mode"
- when entering the serial key, and clicking activate, an error message pops up (unable to connect to activation server)

Ideas:
- I checked the internet connection and it's ok
- I double checked the code and it's correct
- also tried manual activation, but the e-mail address (https://www.taleworlds.com/act/) is a 404 error


I assume that there is a server problem, but it is not really cool that my activated installs are relegated back to trial version because of it.


Thanks a lot for checking!

Ok, my "solution" was to buy a second copy of the game, this time on good old games. Now I have my disc version, and also gog download. The latter works, no activation necessary.
Not ideal, but currently it is €7, which is like a pack of cigarettes. Definietly a better deal than spending even more of my free time trying to fix it.

moral of the story: buy games without DRM.

one comment: I perfectly understand, that IT background is IT background, sometimes problems with logins happen. But. I really feel, that relegating an already activated copy of the game to trial version, because of a server problem is not fair.
