View Full Version : Far Cry 2 Online Code - Not Recognized?
01-20-2009, 05:30 PM
So - I got a copy of Far Cry 2 with my GTX 280 (from EVGA), and I was able to install it using the install key that came in the game. When I try to go online, however, and input my 'Online Key', it doesn't recognize it. In fact, it doesn't accept a code with any 'Numbers' in it. Am I missing something? Did my video card vendor ship Far Cry sans the online capability (and/or code)
Any info appreciated.
btw - How is online mode?

When entering the online key use shift to enter capital letters. Also make sure that the number zero isn't mistaken for a capital "o".
Online mode is ok. Gameplay is great but support leaves much to be desired.

Thanks for the info -
When I attempt to type any number when prompted for an online code (during online profile creation), it does not appear in the text box. I think there's another code that needs to be provided / generated. The code I have starts out with 'FC2- . . . ' and again, the '2' is not accepted in the field.
Any additional assistance appreciated. Does support moderate these forums? I wonder if they know?

Retnil already told you what to do. To siMplify it "MAKE SURE CAPS LOCK ISNOT ON"

Some users have also reported that only one of the Numeric Pad and the standard numbers worked, sorry I cant remember which, but you could try whichever you arnt trying now...

I believe it's the standard numbers (the ones across the top of keyboard) that work correctly.
It was the same with Rainbow Six Vegas 2.
^^ Seems to be the reoccurring theme around here huh?
