HWID not showing up in api/hwid.php

(i don't know if this is the right place to open this topic, there's no forum support area... coding might help, as might tech support, but i think it's an API problem, and i don't know where to ask about that)

i have a HWID problem.

i have a feeling it's an API problem, perhaps my username or profile is damaged or something.

this is the 2nd time this has happened, when i first added my HWID after I signed up, I put in my HWID, it took a week for the HWID to be recognised in the API.

when i visit my UserCP, the HWID is set correctly. i've re-pasted in the same key several times without change.

i have two different apps that show the HWID the same way. it's the same serial i used for the last 3 months without issue.

something has changed, likely on my account, because when i use the API, i.e.


this is the output.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<userinfo>
<userid></userid>
<username></username>
<joindate></joindate>
<posts></posts>
<thanks></thanks>
<usergroup></usergroup>
</userinfo>
any advice on how to change this ?

As we talked earlier, this is a strange issue. Never seen this before.

But you could try the following: Generate a random MD5-Hash (or grab one here -> ) and use it as your HWID.

Then, check the API with the "new" HWID. If it's working, try to reset it to your real HWID.

You may also try this tool:

It forces our apps to generate a new HWID.

actually, the new MD5 worked fine, as it did when i had the problem back in march ? i could set a new MD5'd value, it didnt work for the existing hashed value :/


so, perhaps there's a blacklist or some kind of parsing error on some hashed values, and drew an unlucky HDD serial from the random value box.

probably for the best if i change my HDD serial, thanks for the advice.



Yay for strange errors in undocumented code.

This is what would happen if you and some other user share the very same HWID. Don't know if this is the case here and I can't really check (an admin probably could). If you have access to another PC you should check if it works when changing your hardware and thus using a different HWID.

Check your link now. A user namend "dreamer" owns your HWID now.

who knew an 8 character, hexadecimal, HDD serial was so predictable...

it cleared up pretty quickly after i changed the HDD serial as noted earlier. probably good to keep around in case it comes up again for another user with a similar problem.
