  • Need help with CD serial!!!

    Okay, so I lost my stupid manual with the serial number on it for BF2. Is there a way to retrieve it from the registry? I looked in the ergc file or whatever (found some tips on another board) but there are like 50 bazillion characters strung out after where it is supposed to go. I want to install my BF2 at my sister's place so I can play with her! Help me out!

    Kisses!

    A quick search of our forums turns up this:

    The registry does store the CD key.

    hkey local machine/software/electronic arts/battlefield 2/ergc

    The default in that location is the reg key with x9392 appended to the front.
    You don't think it's correct?

      I found that thread, but when I went to my ergc folder, after x9392, there was a string of like 200 numbers. The key might be there, but it is encoded. I checked on my sister's registry (she does have her CD key) and her key did not appear anywhere in the string of numbers in the ergc file, so it must be some kind of code deal. Any other thoughts, Cing? :)

        Copy that registry entry (to disk or thumbdrive). Install BF2 using your sister's CD Key. Once it's installed, copy your old registry entry over the entry made with your sister's key. Does that make sense?

            I have no idea if it'll actually work, though... :row__642:

            I would copy it over the new installation after you install the 1.13 patch and before you create/import your account.

              Doh. well. okay, so it didn't work. nice try though. maybe my hubby didn't send me the full number or something. oh well, I'll just mail EA a stupid disk and ten bucks to get a new serial. Thanks for trying!

                  If both you and your sister have a CD key whats the problem? You can still install BF2 on multiple computers with the same BF2 install disc right?
