Hey guys, I'm having a bit of trouble. I seemed to have lost my CD key for Halo PC, and after getting a new computer I would like to install it again, but I'm not about to go download a keygen or some other virus giving shit. What's the "official" way to get the CD key back? Calling Gearbox?

Do you still have Halo or Halo CE installed on your computer? If so, you can use this: hce.halomaps.org - Halo CE Maps files and Utilities Resource for Halo Custom Edition

Well to be honest, I can't see how you would get a CD key from them withough proof of purchase, reciept or the like. What you could do is find a friend who no longer plays and get their CD key. As I said, I can't see you being able to get one out of Gearbox without proof of ownership. Sorry.

See if you can do it a second time! I've never done it so I don't know what they'd ask you. Isn't the CD key on the box? Mine is certainly on an orange strip in the box just above the CD area.

Next time, Write your CD-KEY somewhere safe, and triple backup it.;) I had this dilema, but luck for me I found it. :)

@sunray: yea, I had that orange strip on the CD case, but I took it off and stuck it somewhere safe..... next thing I know it's gone.

@guiltymc: triple backup.... never thought of it. Will do.
