View Full Version : help! "This game was properly authenticated at launch time"

hi guys. i play paladins via steam and recently i'm getting this message all the time, i tried restarting the hirez authentication service with no results, validated steam files with 100% validation and so far the only solution that seems to work is to reinstall the game. However after reainstalling the problem comes back the next day, and i'm getting tired of redownloading this game over and over, as it takes between 2 hours and half a day to do so.
please help me find a more permanent solution to this.

this happens because of a slow internet connection, I have one myself so I suffer from this also. There is a solution, not perfect, but there is:

Open the game and wait til the launcher is on the screen where you have to press "Play". Turn off you internet connection, then press play. The game will open without authenticating. When the game is open, press F11 to get out of full screen, then turn the internet on again. Go back to the game, hit F11 once more to return to full screen and simply login with your account.

There! You are on the game.
