If you have trouble running GameGuard, sign the Petition to have GameGuard removed from Shaiya.

The most common things that cause errors in GameGuard (GG) are;

  • Firewalls not being properly configured to allow Shaiya and it's associated applications through.
  • Anti-virus or Anti-spyware programs, are intrusive by nature, and GameGuard is designed to prevent things from being Intrusive towards the game it's protecting. You may be able to configure the programs to avoid Shaiya, but people have suggested that only uninstalling will allow GameGuard to successfully run.
  • Add the dump_wmimmc.sys file in your GameGuard sub-folder from your Shaiya install folder, to the Anti-Virus Exception list.

Here are links on how to add exceptions on popular Virus Scanners:
Trend Micro PC-cillin Antivirus

If you experience errors with GameGuard, re-boot your PC and try running in Safe Mode. As Windows is booting hold down the F8 key. You won't be able to play in safe mode, but at least it will be able to update GG, and you will also know that your PC can run it, and it's some software you have running when you boot Normally that's interfering with it.

Most of the issues that we have seen attributed to this error message have been due to a firewall. If you are receiving this error message, we suggest trying the following steps.

First to test, try disabling any and all firewalls that you have running on your machine to see if this alleviates the issue. If it does then it's just a matter of re-enabling them and trying to have them configured to allow the Game and GG through. Firewall Configuration

If this does not resolve the issue and the error messages persist, you should verify that you have all firewall or Internet security software disabled. If you are able to connect with your firewall software disabled, then you will need to add the Shaiya programs to your exceptions. Firewall Configuration

If this does not resolve the issue then please uninstall the firewall application as it could have made changes to the system registry that even disabling the software will not correct.

If you have a cable or DSL modem and are connecting through a router, switch, or a hub, try disconnecting this device and connecting directly to your cable/DSL modem. If you are able to connect this way, then there is a chance you may need to update the firmware on the device that you are connecting through, which you can find on the manufacturer's website.

Official FAQ - Error 3xx

Game Hack Detected

This theoretically should occur, when actual Game Hack's are running, but due to the lack of intelligence of the GameGuard software, any process that interferes with the Game's process will generate the error. This could be as innocent as an anti-virus program simply inspecting the Game process to see if it's running any malicious code.

  • Windows Vista - Close Windows Sidebar and re-try.

Check to see that you do no have any Known Blocked Applications. If you have any anti-virus/spyware programs, rootkit killer programs, disable them and see what happens, If it starts working, then you may need to add Shaiya's programs to some kind of program exception list. If that does not help, start un-installing each possibly conflicting program, one by one, testing each time.

The last resort is to re-install windows. People have had success with this, but I would argue, that it is not windows re-install that fixes the issue, it was likely a program that was running in the background without the users knowledge (re-installing windows un-install and removes all programs). For some people an un-install would be out of the question, which is fair enough, I would recommend at least trying to un-install any applications, which you may think might try to access the Games process before giving up.
