    Claiming Invalid License Key

    I bought an MMORPG script and now when i try to install it, it tells me that the license key is invalid, ive gone back to the site where i purchased the script, but it has closed down.

    Can anyone give me any ideas on how to get this script working please?

    As over US$100 was paid, id like to get it going, rather than sitting there useless

    MMORPG? This is an online game? Does this mean you have paid or the game its self or to participate playing the game? IOf you have paid for the game (if i understand correctly) run through the files which (more than likely) stored in a folder or file named install. Your looking for either (right click on the page where it asks for the key to be inserted and find the name of the input element) $_GET['nameOfElement']; or $_POST['nameOfElement']; if you can find any documents relating to this, stick em on and we'll see. We need something to work with.

    What's the name of the script. No one can help without seeing the script. Most scripts encrypt files that callback to the server (so if their sites down, the key wont work). I've been screwed like that too, had to decrypt the files, and remove callbacks.
    PHP Code:
    $aString is_string((string)array()) ? true false// true :D

    yeah, i purchased the script itself.

    theres no install folder or file, the readme tells me to change the data file details to match sql database, thats done (having trouble getting sql to inject)

    then tells me to input license key number into config file, but then i get error

    Depends, most use base64 to encrypt. But we don't even know where the license validation is in the script yet let alone if it's encrypted or not.

    Can you paste the link to the site you bought it from?

    But what I did to locate the problem in my script was, downloaded a program called dview.exe which let me search through all the files for instances of whatever I wanted. So if it's a big script you can find a program to search thru all files for things like, the url of the site u got it from (to see if its calling to that server) or base64 to see if its encrypted, and so on.

    Once you find that file, we can help.

    $aString is_string((string)array()) ? true false// true :D

    We all speak the same language here, never mind the dutch!

    Go through the steps of install. If pressing submit button the page reloads then go back the that page, right click and find <form action=". Do this for the next set of pages write all the file locations down and post them here.

    If the page does not reload on submit, copy and paste the head section of the page here.

    this is the readme that game with the script

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

    STEP ONE:

    Upload all the files and folders in 'Public_HTML' folder directly to you host folder.
    This will be calleds eomthing like public_html



    STEP TWO:

    Edit the 'GEGEVENS.PHP' file accordingly. This means put in your MySQL database settings
    in here, in the given areas.



    STEP THREE:

    Import the 'Gangster.SQL' file using PHPMyAdmin. This SQL file can be found in the SQL
    folder in the first directory of the ZIP file.



    STEP FOUR:

    You now need to edit the "Configuration.php" File found in the download, public_html folder.
    Put your LICENSE KEY (Found on our site where you purchased the script: www.thegangstergame.com/script/
    Go to Client Area) in the space shown.



    STEP FIVE:

    Now you need to download the LICENSE KEY file, from the same area. When downloaded it should be called
    KEY.PHP, now upload that directly to your public_Html folder where the index.php is.



    STEP SIX:

    Assuming you have put your login name you are going to use to register with, in the 'GEGEVENS.PHP'
    file, you should have admin access. Click 'Admin Menu' which is indicated in red, in the centre of your
    website, and from here there is information on what to do next regarding changing your site name etc.


    FINAL STEP:

    Set the cron php files for intivals shown by what they are called.

    So were you able to get key.php or is that the step you can't get to because of your license key being invalid? I'm guessing because the site went down they can't verify your key. Its funny though that it says the website is thegangstergame.com but the last url in that read me is www.mygamingscripts.com
