    With the recent attacks against members, and lack of care towards their mental health we have started a fundraiser to help fund the life saving charity the Samaritans. Without their support and efforts many people we know wouldn't be alive.

    If you're able to help, you can donate via our fundraiser on GoFundMe Link

Just to warn people in case they still have some important stuff on AG, e.g. in pms, that are not backed up.


I've reset my phone recently and forget to turn off Two-Factor authentication on the services I use when doing so.

No big deal, I just needed to hunt down the backup codes for most services (e.g. google) that I've backed up somewhere.

EXCEPT for AssemblerGames. Our favorite closed-four-months-ago-but-still-running website seems to have a bug (suprise!) with backup codes not working and as such I can't log in using any method; I'm locked out.

If you wanted to contact me via PM there, try here instead. Thankfully I have backed up my PMs when the website shutdown was first announced.

Ah crap that's not good, if you (or anybody else here) has this issue OG side please email proof of account ownership be it email/ip and isp used most/proof of email ownership too (as we'll email a new pass after). Just so we can confirm you're the legit account holder.

I'm going to move this to the news here just so more are able to be aware of this issue.

Thank you for making this post!

I did think the time could have been incorrect on the Assembler server, which would cause 2FA codes not to work, however I made a test post and the time's correct.

I guess it's another broken feature to be aware of sadly.

At least the community now has a reliable alternative with ObscureGamers!

My issue is with backup codes, which are not time dependent anyways. I've lost my rolling code when resetting my phone, which is annoying but shouldn't lock you out as long as you got the backup codes. But AG doesn't accept my backup codes (and I've used the proper way to enter them).

Normally I guess I could contact the admins to sort it out, but in AG current state, that's not an option.

so now you cant backup the rest of your pms, and you cant log in to the site too? oh bummer, the site is up but without an admin. (kevin is the only admin but he doesnt care) very unlikely your profile to be unlock

Everything is backed up on my side, but I though I'd warn others in case they haven't backed up their stuff.

I really wonder when it'll be shut down for real though.

Not kev, that's for sure. It's mostly shitposters and spammers - and I don't think that's "using" the site, but more along the lines of ridiculing it. Good riddance.
