I've been contacted by people, writers and modders, who wanted to register on this forum (in partular, a friendly Russian modder wished to contact one of the writers here to ask about fully coding/writing a mod based on their story), but they found out that they were unable to do it due to technical issues.

I've decided to register here myself, and indeed, I found out that it is not possible to register on the Attic forums any more - the system asks for security code, but no security code is actually shown.

You can log in, but you cannot register, and if you've forgotten your password, again, you can't get it back - the system asks for security code, but no security code is actually shown.


If it is possible, please, fix this.


Best of luck,

I'm sorry to hear that people can't register at present! This is a good forum. Hope that all is resolved soon.


There is a little bit of crossover membership between Gamejag and this Baldur's Gate Discord: discordapp.com/invite/rVpTb4p


If the specific writers/modders want to use Discord as a way to get in touch with each other and with other Baldur's Gate fans, it's an alternate communication option. Discord has both private message options and forum style conversations.

I've got some screenshots here that reproduce the issue.
Step 1 is enter your birthday, which works as it's supposed to (I entered a birthday that was well over 18).
Step 2 is enter user name, email, password, which also allow you to enter information.
Step 3 is where the error occurs. There is a 'security code' error but no field to enter a code is shown on screen and no code is sent to email. When you select <Create Account>, you get the message:

The following errors were found:
The security code you supplied did not match the one displayed, a new code has been generated, please try again

Looking at the source code of the web page, I can see that there's a recaptcha field that is hidden. It's not in my screenshot because it's not showing up at all.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.co...LsGgBX5mBoJ3naK"></script>
<iframe src="http://www.google.co...LsGgBX5mBoJ3naK" height="300" width="500" frameborder="0"></iframe><br/>
<textarea name="recaptcha_challenge_field" rows="3" cols="40"></textarea>
<input type="hidden" name="recaptcha_response_field" value="manual_challenge"/>

Hope that this info helps.

Hello Kulyok, I'm Nimloth, pleased to make your acquaintance :-)

It's sad to hear that people can't register at the moment, it would be great to have new members sharing their stories in this amazing forum. I hope the problem will be solved soon

As for the modder wanting to contact a writer here, I know that some of the Attic members also post on FFnet, so he/she could try contacting them by leaving a guest review on one of their stories...But they would not be able to reply, unless they too left their answer in the review section, so it would be a bit tricky. It's mostly a sort of emergency solution, a last resort to use until the Attic registering problem is fixed and they can communicate easily here.

Can't wait to meet the new people! :-)

Hi, guys. This summer has been absolutely insane. I've been doing a volunteer teaching gig that's required me to develop a new lesson plan, including new PowerPoint stack, every week. Finding the issue was a matter of five minutes here, five minutes there, and OMG where did they hide that setting now?

I think I have it.


Blue-Inked_Frost is right, it was a recaptcha that Google has discontinued. It should be turned off now; I'm not seeing it any more, but if someone else would like to test it for me?
