Help, if possible.

Alright, without questioning me, I need to block the ID server. (The server that the game communicates to, to query servers and iD's new key checking system.) I don't feel like asking you this is illegal, I'm not asking you for a keygen, or a crack, or anything. So I know that there's a address I can add to my Hosts file that will prevent Doom from talking to the iD server. Does anyone know the address, or can anyone find out? I tried to monitor my network activity via Vista's performance monitoring tools, but I can't minimize out of the damn game in order to read it...so I can't find out what I need to add D: It's something like id##.something.net(.com?) Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Wouldn't that prevent the game from working correctly? In any case couldn't you use a packet sniffer to determine what IP or domain you need to block?

    No, it just keeps the game from contacting the master server, to verify keys.

    I own Doom 3, but I wanted to set up another copy on my spare computer so that I could play OpenCoop with people. I'm not going to go waste another $10-20 bucks just so I can play Coop with someone.

    Either way, I figured it out.

    Thanks anyways.

    ---Edit;

    Probably shouldn't tell people how to do this...
