RA3: 'The specified Online ID or account name is already in use'


Best Answer ViperMkVII, 29 January 2017 - 08:00 AM

When you login you need to put your E-mail address in the "EA account name" field (meanwhile server login is used as EA account name in C&C3);
About online ID, if someone has already used the online ID you want to use, just type another one. You can type everything in the online ID field, it's just a nickname. Go to the full post

At my first try on getting C&C:online the error "The specified account or sub-account wasn't found" so i tried again and then another error appeared 'The specified Online ID or account name is already in use' appears but i didint even had a gamespy account before( as that was the reason most had this error), now this second error is the only one that appears, im using windows 10 and my game is just normal.

Well.     I think we have a fault.   After you have used a name for the first time, please could you try using it again.    It may work second time.
