My friends and I love doing PvP in the game we are playing. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose but usually, it is them who win most of the time. I know I’m not that good with games but I try my best.
Anyway, there was one time we talked of doing PvP after school but when we get home, my friend texted me that he can’t start the game and all he sees is error 340 mentioning something about GameGuard. Please share any helpful notes on this error.
Wondering What Error 340 Is In GameGuard
Error “340” in GameGuard indicates a problem with the downloading of the nProtect patches. This can be due to your internet connection or a firewall maybe. If you are connected to your home Wi-Fi, try restarting the router. If the router has a power button, press it to turn it off then unplug it from the power for about ten to twenty seconds (10 – 20).
Press any button on the router to drain any leftover power or to power cycle. After this, plug the router back to the power and turn it on. If this doesn’t work, try to disable your antivirus or internet security temporarily then try again. If you are using a firewall, try adjusting the settings and allow GameGuard to connect.
If this doesn’t work, you need to check the “hosts” file. Open Windows Explorer then navigate to “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc”. Right-click the “hosts” file and select “Properties”. In the “Properties” dialog, in “General” tab, make sure “Read-only” is not checked then click “OK”. Next, right-click the “hosts” file again and select “Open”. In “Open with” dialog, select “Notepad” and click “OK”.
Next, scroll to the bottom of the page then look for without quotes “# 127.0.0.1 localhost”. Delete all lines after this line. Save the file and close it then restart the computer. Check also that you have enough bandwidth left in your monthly allowance and that no upload or download is crowding your internet connection. If you are downloading or uploading something, finish it first before starting the game.
