my login of the software fails and reports false password. I use the same credentials for the website login which works properly. Is there any fix?
The only thing I can think of, is that you may have used one or more special characters in your password (punctuation) that are acceptable to the website, but not to the game client. You can change your password, after logging in to the website, at https://fold.it/portal/user/me/edit
If that does not help, it might be better to post this under Feedback. The Foldit staff, and especially the devs, are in a much better position to help you than I am (as a regular player). And I guess the devs might look at Feedback more often than at the Forum.
There's a Foldit server on Discord. The #bugs-and-feedback channel is a good spot for problem reports.
Here in the Forum, one problem is that users don't get notified when there's a reply. Posts in Feedback do get notifications. And #bugs-and-feedback can be almost interactive at times, but you may wait a while for a reply.
I'll send the OP (fabFab) a message just in case.
Thank you very much. The special character hint solved my problem. Indeed, the client does not accept special characters but the website does ;)
