Devwiki difficulties

Postby Rokth » Fri Dec 02, 2011 6:37 am

I recently bought the Humble IV bundle, like some others for the source.
I tried accessing the devwiki but for some reason it wasn't accepting my logon.

Not sure if I was doing it wrong or what.

You used the same user & pass you use on the forum, yeah?

Did you log out and log in again? I found I needed to do that, or at least wait the length of time it took to think of doing that.

Although a bit counter-intuitive, there's two separate account systems at work. One generates the browser popup asking for your forum credentials, the other is the MediaWiki login (for which you need to create a separate account). In addition to that, the accounts are not shared across wikis, so for Uplink, *winia and Defcon you'll require separate accounts as well.
