Installing a Game - Twice? - 12/18/2015 9:30:22 AM

I have two computers in my computer room. The one that is a back up is running Windows 10. I haven't tried to install a matrix game onto that machine. Could I install the same game onto a second computer? I just would like to try a few titles on Windows 10 and if I go away fora while play the games on another computer.

I guess I could try it to see if it works but I thought I would ask first.

Thanks guys

Dem

yes that's fine, Technically you should only use it on one pc at a time, there's a file on it somewhere saying what you can and can't do to be legal in each game directory.

as both pc's aren't used at the same time and you own them both, it won't be a issue, where as playing two games with the same serial number online on a server in multiplayer game etc at the same time would be as it won't work, as online you'd need two serial numbers on 2 pc's, so to get round this then to play together you need to select hotseat mode and not online mode and both use the same pc.

hope that makes sense

Hi,

Thanks for the answer, I might go way soon and thought about bringing a game with me to play and then delete, my parents are odler and don't play video games!!

I might try them on the windows 10 when I feel ambitious.
