I have received a 'The specified Online ID or account name is already in use' error message while logging in to Red Alert 3's lobby.
This is what I saw in the FAQ:
- Upon login, the game says: 'The specified Online ID or account name is already in use'.
Solution: Your nickname has probably been reserved. You need to claim your old nicknames. Activating them takes some time. Read the pinned topics. It can also be that a different user already is using a profile with the name you tried to use, in this case you will have to settle on a different nickname.
The confusion was, I had no other nicknames. And from my profile, my accounts already have been activated.
EDIT: I will say though, that at least my login does work with C&C Generals and Zero Hour and C&C 3 Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.
