Tutorial how to fix "Failed to contact key server":

1. Find out the "AppID" of the game you need a fix for.
Tip: Use CFToolbox to find out: Select the game in Game/Media/Tools and show it's properties, there you'll see the needed "AppID"

2. Open regedit (Start->Run->regedit)

3. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam\Users

4. There should be at least one folder named "xxxxxx" (x=0-9) (Depends on how much accounts you are using)

5. You have to find out which one of these accounts you are using
Tip: In HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam\Users\xxxxxx\Friends\xxxxxx you can see your "Friends" name

6. Create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam\Users\%youraccount%\cdkeys

7. Select this newly created folder

8. On the right side create a new string named the "AppID" you found out before

9. Set the value of the newly created string to a valid key or anything random if you just want to Steam not showing "Failed to contact key server" error anymore

10. Start Steam and play the game.

I really wish you had posted this before I deleted my COD2 files, from which it took a month of downloading 3 parts a day from RapidShare.

Wrong thread to ask. I doubt you will find Mini-GCFs, as not many people have the game, through Steam. Keep looking, though.. :wink:

I'm using Pacsteam, (Don't hate me for that please), and the download speed there is really fast. If you do come across those, please post this here. I'm gonna search the forums but I've gotta feeling I won't find them.

Thank anyway S p I n X.

Thanks but I already knew the link to the full game. It was uploaded by Kajanis right?? There are too many files there and its too big. By using Pacsteam, ok Steam, it download the whole thing, so I don't have to waste my time clicking and waiting and so on.. Like I said the mini gcf isn't available... :( . Guess I'm just gonna watch the gameplay movies..

I think it's not really the right place for talking about that, and there is no COD2 mini gcf so...
