Windows 7: FarCry 2 causes Schannel ID 36882 errors

FarCry 2 causes Schannel ID 36882 errors

Hello
After some time, I have reinstalled FC2 in windows 7 64bits.
As soon as I start the game, it start generating Schannel id 36882 errors nearly every 10 seconds.
The error means that a certificate from a remote server was issued by an untrusted certificate authority.
So, FC2 exe is sending info to a server and gets wrong info back, or the needed certificate is not on my pc, or the certificate on my pc is expired.

The problem is that I can not recover the needed data form my logbook data which server or certificate gives that error.
After one week trial and error and reading lots of postings and microsoft articles, i just can not resolve that problem.
So far , this is what I have tried:

- update ATI drivers (XFX Radeon HD 6870) and VIA sound drivers. (I use onboard sound)

-Clean install FC2 twice. Download the 01 patch from securom and used that for the third clean install. After that used patch 02 and 03.

- run securom diagnostics tool. No problems found.

-run the game in compatibility mode, XP, servicepack 1 and 2. Tack run as administrator
-run in compatibility mode vista, servicepack 1.

- Update all certificates by download the rootsupd.exe file from microsoft and install it. There were lots of certificates added but not the needed one.

- Installed MMC and checked all available certificates. Could not find the one I needed.

- Trouble shooting Forms Base Authenticication using Secure LDAP Authentivication on ISA server 2006. This article, written by Yuri Diogenes of Microsoft, attents some problem solving and how to solve the Schannel errors. This program makes a readable report and not the binary unreadable stuff of logbook data.
Sadly enough, the tool they use is made for a server, not a pc, so no report.

After 1 hour running the game, I have to delete about 60 schannel errors from the logbook.
Besides that, I have the feeling, that all those actions slows down the game.

Does anybody know, how I can read the schannel error and track the problem, so I can download the needed certificate and install that one.

The only readable parts in the binary data are:
- Verisign, Inc
- Verisign Thrust network
- terms of use at https://www.verisign.com/rpalc(c)101/0
- verisign class 3 G30
- microsoft advertising
- locate.madserver.net
- http://svrsecure-g3
- https://verisign.com/rpa0
- http://ocsp.verisign.com
- http://svrsecure.g3.aia.verisign.com

I have updated all verisign certificates, no joy. http://locate.madserver.net seems to be an online gaming server. (I only play FC2 stand alone)
I have no idea what MS advertising is doeing in FC2.exe.
Thanks for reading.

Well I've never seen/heard of that issue. Have you tried patching the game - Ubisoft - Far Cry 2

Also you may want to give support a call as that issue you're having is strange. It's almost like the server is trying to validate the disk and can't.

Give tech support a call about the issue. And please let us know what they say.

Thanks

BTW I have the steam version of the game (Far Cry 2) and had no problems.

Thanks
I will try that.
BTW, just reinstall FC2 after a complete cleanup of the registry. No joy though.

If this is a legitimate retail disk it may be possible that you got a bad copy. Tech support should answer that for you.

Good luck; and let us know.

Ubi tech support????? Sygnus... you are such a kidder!!!

Good luck with that...


Not making fun of you Nicolaas, is that, you bought the cheesiest game ever from the most Inept Company ever when it comes to customer service and their servers. Before you do anything, go to Ubisoft forums for that game and look at the complains, then look at all the post with server problems. You may not have a problem at all with the game, their servers are probably down and that's why you are getting that error. Then again, I could be wrong and it is your problem but going to tech support won't solve that. You may get lucky from another forum member that had your same problem at UBi's FC2 forums.

Good Luck

My apologies, it was my fail attempt to make a joke but I know see that it was taken the wrong way or I failed to type it the way I was hearing it in my head.

Now, being said that, nothing that I said is a lie and I did lend a hand to Nicolaas by telling him to go to Ubisoft's FC2 forums.

Again, I could have used more tact but sometimes, my humor gets in the way and when it comes to UBI and their shoddy churning products... I tend to get a little aggravated.

Again, I apologize, it was not my intention to put you down or make you feel like you were not helping because I know for a fact that you do... and lots of time you have helped me as well.

Gents
All help is welcome, so I do thank you both on your input.
Some additional info though:
I have contacted UBI customer service and... well, we see.
I agree with the fact, that FC2 is buggy, but I have run that game on XP (with no big problems) and win 7 (also without big problems)
I unistall the game some month ago. At that time it runs well, beside some bugs, but no freezing of graphics and no window 7 errors. These started after reinstall.
The only big difference is a new XFX 6870 gpu and ATI drivers.
So perhaps these are the reason for the strange error.
I will go back to the 11.3 drives soon.

It is just, I do like the game.
I have checked the FC2 forum, but with no results.

Anyway sygnus21, thank you again for your input. It is much appreciated. One of the reasons I have posted on seven forum, is because you guys realy try to help in a most positive way.

I will post the UBI reaction, if I get one. And of course all of the solution if I found one.

Nico
