Game Genie cannot connect to server error

Postby Blackhorror » Sun Oct 13, 2013 3:01 am

When I start the game genie an error pop up saying that game genie cannot connect to the server.
I already reinstalled the game genie and disabled my antivirus but nothing worked.

If you get that message with NO error number then it means the client cannot connect to the server

As far as I can see, the server is working fine currently. It's possible there is a routing issue between your ISP and our server or it could be something unique to your computer (eg antivirus...just because it's disabled doesn't mean it's fully disabled).

If you tried another computer at the same location and had the same issue, that would indicate an ISP issue. If it worked, then it would be something related to your computer.

Make sure you have updated everything including Windows. You may also want to check your firewall to make sure it's not blocking anything and also try a Disk Cleanup as well as a cleanup of your Temporary Internet Files via IE (even if you don't use it).

No problems here. Could be a routing issue between you guys and our server.

But you never said that, you just said basically me too hence the suggestion of a routing issue for all :)

If it's only happening for certain game saves, then please let me know what they are and which cheats you are using.

In that case, it's a save related. As I asked in a PM, can you please upload it somewhere I can access so I can check it here :)

GG is giving me the "Error occurred while communicating with the server" error message whenever I try to resign or mod my FFX-X2 HD save files. It lets me resign any other saves just fine, so it must be a problem with this save. Any help would be appreciated.

It's an issue in the Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 software I'm afraid with regards the re-sign. There is an update in the works, but no ETA.

Thanks for responding GenieLamp. I was worried the issue was on my end. I appreciate everything you guys at GG do for us.

I'm getting the same thing. I can apply codes no problem, but cannot resign (communication error).

Did a previous update muck things up? I remember being able to resign just fine not too long ago...

Certain games cause an issue so while most games work, there's one or two which cause this problem :|

Remove any USB drives from your computer and try it and let me know if it made any difference.

Having same problem i tried uninstalling and reinstalling it two times already. Resigning and modding the saves don't seem to work at all and its been well over a month since this stopped working for me. Removing the usb doesn't help since I can't really seem to edit the saves without it, so hopefully we can get a heads up on a possible fix sometime this month hopefully.

Can you perhaps explain your exact issue in more detail?

When I try to add cheats to a save I have the moment it tries to connect to the server I get a error message without an error code. The games I have tried to do so far with are "The Guided Fate Paradox" "Bioshock Infinite" "God Of War 3" "GTA V" and others but it just keeps happening. Would that be enough info because I'm trying my best to explain it :)

It sounds like possibly an anti-virus/firewall issue.

Try disabling them both temporarily and see if that makes any difference. Also, if you do happen to have another computer at the same location, try that and see what happens :)

Make sure everything is up to date. If it's still not working, then my last suggestion is to back up all your important files, format and install a nice new clean install of Windows to see if that solves it.

Ok, now im confused, first you mention this would be fixed in the next update(wich of course is not ready yet), and now you mention it has to do with maybe the fire wall, antivirus or a virus.

Are we talking about the same problem still, and do other peope beiseds me and arc21 have this problem or is just us?

They were right I did a clean reinstall of Windows and its working fine now I grabbed a clean save of a game to see if it worked crossed my fingers because I ERASED EVERYTHING on my computer. So it must have been something with Windows or some program that was causing it to do that so if your really looking to have it work again try and reinstall Windows see if that helps, but I just did a factory reset so it'll take some time to get everything back, but at least it works :D
