I'm assuming the game key on the disc will not work on my new computer, correct? What is the procedure to allow this?

The game key should work just fine. I have never had any problems moving to a new PC and the serials are listed in the members section.

Cheers
Jev

What Jevhaddah said, no limits as far as new computers go. Just built a new one myself and everything installed fine.

Thanks both. Makes one wonder what the point of even having the keys is, though. Now I just have to get an external DVD drive - apparently newer PCs don't have them (and I thought all did so didn't notice).

Can't you just register your games and get both the installers and the patches via download?

You can't install/run the game without it. Reduces piracy.

If I want to stay up to three in the morning to start the download, yes. One game download and my bandwidth for the month is used up and I end up slowed down. One negative of living in a remote area.

^reason I got myself an External Hard Drive not because of Data cap but I used to have slow internet to begin with thus downloading large setup files where a pain.

Whenever I download the setup file of my purchased game here on Matrixgames I immediately back it up on that drive for safe keeping so I can easily reinstall the whole game in case of a new PC or format.
