Here's my TWO CENTS.
I went and spent $19.80 on this game, thinking that it was going to be pretty kewl, so i tried installing this on my XP Home Edition, QUAD Q6600 with Two BFG 9800GTX, 512mb ram, and I spent 4 hours trying to get this to work, and after talking to tech support 3 times, they were telling me that I have programs running in the background. So I disabled whatever, changed MSCONFIG to be Selective Startup, and yet this damn thing will not run. I then went to my Pentium D Duo Core computer, got the game installed, and proceeded to play online - multiplayer, and when trying to create a profile, it tell me that I could not connect to the servers. I play COD4, and run a COD Extreme MODDED server, create maps, and let me tell you, creating a map for COD4 is a ***** because of no manuals for Radiant and the process of creating and compiling a map, but this just beats the hell out of me, that I can not get this **** game to work on either of these TWO computers that I built. I do tech support for a living in my own company, and have been in computers for 30+ years, and the only thing that I can come up with, is that this game is a piece of CRAP... and I thought I was frustrated with COD Modern Warfare and no dedicated servers and map making tools... GEEZZ
uhm Razor i guss thats not true..
The option create a icon on your desktop only works on XP so i guess it should run on XP...
My English isn't that great. I revoked my serial code after i uninstall-ed to because i had spelled my serial code with caps lock on. I was thinking ow i need to "(re)voke" my serial so i can use it again... When i choose the option it said my serial was successfully removed. The "re" in revoke made me think i had to revoke it so i could use it again... It is impossible to uninstall my game in dutch (my main language).
Is it possible to reactivate my serial code? i JUST "revoked" it (10mins before posted).

A:Your Online Key is the CD Key that is the code on the back of the Manual that came with your game. Make sure you do not mix up letter's such as "0" (zero) and "O" (the letter). </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Answer ID 12426 | Updated 10/07/2010 01:20 PM
When I try to activate the game, I get an error that my CD key is invalid.
"Activation process has been terminated. Please make sure that the SERIAL has been entered correctly."
Is there a trick to entering this key?
First, please make sure that you have the latest patch installed for Far Cry 2. You can download the v1.03 patch here.
If you still encounter problems when entering your CD Key for activation, please note the following:
- Make sure that you are entering your CD Key exactly as it appears, including the dashes.
- After the first 3 characters in the CD key, there will not be any ‘I’, ‘O’, ‘S’, or ‘Z’ alphabetical characters.
For all other Far Cry 2 activation questions, click here.
If you dont have a CD-Key or Manual, then you need to contact the point of sale.
If you didnt buy the game, dont ask for a CD key here, your account will be suspended.
Replacement for lost CD Keys/Manuals are available from Ubisoft.
