I just tried uploading a few times (second upload) and didn't realize what I was doing wrong when I got an error. I forgot to equip the book twice and ready the files...

Anyway I updated the files and now it says user banned, stop try to hack CnE :(

Any help? I have no intentions of hacking CnE, only showing off my character as I propel him to perfection!

Give it time. That's an error that pops up when you try to upload too often, as a safety measure. The ban is only temporary. :)

Alright thanks PK. Hey, did that MGE lighting stuff you were working on ever get any farther?

You should be good to go now. If you try to upload too many times in a short period of time, the system sees it as an attack and blocks further attempts. :)

That's why we have agents like KF.  They're kind of like Superman, they fly in at the last minute to save the day . . . or rather the IP in this case.

Upload failed!
Error: Unknown error.

Sorry, but just a little more help? I havn't an idea what's going wrong. Now that I think of it I don't specifically remember installing the script extender, but it worked the first time so...

EDIT: Oh right that's what MWSE stands for... so what else could it be? I already have MWSE in MGE. (it's a good thing I didn't try installing MWSE)

Which version of C&E are you using? The current version is 1.3.

Give it five minutes (so you don't get banned again  :D ) and try again.

Fligg's moving stuff around so there might be temporary glitches now and then. :)

I'm not sure what happened, but I went through the set up with fliggerty again and it worked. Thanks for the help. Do I need to go through set up every time I want to upload?

You shouldn't have to, no. Just make sure you're doing things in the proper order.  Save, use log to gather data, exit, use uploader on the file from step 1, done. :)

Just post again if it gives you a problem, and we'll sort it out. :)

Hate to say it, but more problems... I just tried uploading and I'm getting unknown error again. I'm not sure if it's normal but when I equip the book, it always summons fligg, and he  has the original dialogue from the first time uploading. I tried equipping again and updating, but got the upload error when using GHFC. I then tried going through the setting things up thing again  (which worked out b4), and no luck.

Perhaps I was supposed to save after updating and use that save file? B/c When I set it up the first time I created a separate save file and continued to play after loading the original save file.

Yes, you need to save after you've setup the mod and before you upload. Basically, equip the book, run the setup (the first time) or record your stats (after the first setup), save, then upload from that save. That should fix your issue.

When you get an error uploading, it's very helpful if you can write it down and post it.  Also, you might want to print the instructions in the readme and follow them as you record and save the first few times.  It's a great place to write down your userID and PIN as well.  You shouldn't need them after the first setup, but on occasion you might need to make a clean save and set it up again.

In fact, have you added/removed/updated C&E without cleaning the save with Wryemash in between?  Even with MCP, just removing a mod and saving doesn't completely clean out Globals and C&E definitely has globals.

Oh wow I can't believe I missed that bit on the read me, I'v read it more than 10 times. And yeah I did write my pin in the readme, and save it to the morrowind directory.

@Elaura they have all been "unkown errors"

Thanks guys, that should be the last of my problems.

I know no one uses C&E anymore but i liked the idea and still use it, until 10 days ago...
Got banned and i still cant upload. So if some one reads this and has the patience to solve it (no idea how easy/hard it is), i ask you (the guy who can solve this) to please take care of it. I found it sad this is not used anymore.

I can't help you with that, but I agree that C&E could use a revival. I used it for a couple of characters and it was a lot of fun. The "uber" characters on there were a little bit frustrating. But self-contained to my character, it was very rewarding. Weren't there talks of adding new achievements? I recall throwing in some of my ideas in that thread.

I don't play much anymore since I just don't have the time. But my brother was playing through the game and decided to start over recently. I'll suggest this to him.

A ban is generally a temporary thing that happens automatically if too many successive upload attempts have been made in too short a period. They are supposed to be cleared away after 30 or 60 minutes.

Tell me your character's name and I can take a look if something is wrong with that.

Edit: Nevermind; I looked into it and found an IP that was blocked. It's been removed. Hopefully that was yours....

Thanks Fligg, that was indeed my IP. The only reason i wrote a post was because i didnt think this was normal. It wasnt the first time i came here. It happened like 2 or 3 times and this ban was in fact temporary, after some time all was great again.
Once again, thanks Fligg for un-blocking my IP. Wish you the best of luck in your current and/or future modding adventures.

And yes, a revival of C&E would be wonderful but that is something that is more in the hands of the players rather than the staff. I realized i spend more time playing (when i am) Morrowind than any of those Oblivons, Fallouts or Skyrims.
Its not that i dont like them its just that MW has some kind of magic(ka), maybe its the fact it is a diamond in the rough that anyone (CS isnt that much of the monster people made it to be, Valve's Hammer was worse) can polish to his standards, and with the latter ones there isnt that much to improve on. You add stuff to them yes, but you dont usually "fix" them.
Maybe its that, i dont know.

Anyway, thanks.

Yeah I recommended it to my bro, but I missed it. He was already almost done with the Hlaalu main quest! I wonder if C&E had a post on the official forums... I think I remember one from Fliggerty.

I have been Banned for an entire day now. Could someone be so kind as to take a look ? :)

I thought it was a 24 hours ban.

Character name is Azoth.
