I try run the installation file and every time i try to it says : " the update program couldn't find the game. The update is impossible without the game being installed. Is there a patch of some sort maybe?
pwweezzz help, dont want 40 bukkkaroos goin to waste.
It's saying this because you either have the wrong patch; i.e. English, Russian, Polish, etc. Or you didn't reboot after the game install.
like i double click on the installation and thats what comes up...wtf
what you mean patch..its something with the updating program:beer:
Ok well what game version did you buy? Retail / Download from Net / Steam And what Patch Update are you trying to install?
LOL! with the help of my cousin he simply installed it, because of me having no clue of computers. I dont illegally dl shit..my friend does, he gets movies and shit :uhoh: anyway
Now the problem seems to be finding a CD key as there was not one on my box...any suggestions how i can get on or can i use anyone elses?
From what I'm reading, it doesn't sound like you paid for the game. If you bought it fair enough, if you simply "acquired" it then we cannot help.
Like Bad_Motha said, if you paid for the game, is it a DVD? Through Steam? Or a Digital Download? What language? It all matters because they all need their own version of the patch. If you have the DVD version, it's in the back of the booklet inside.
no problem fixed...
it was a DVD but my pc didnt auto detect it. So i manually tried to install and set it up...FAILL
and i couldn't find my key on the box, but the helpline aquired me one:bawl: thx guys have fun
Amraam;4583406If you have the DVD version, it's in the back of the booklet inside.
What he said. It's very rare that companies print CD Keys on the box nowadays. They nearly always come on the back of the manual at the bottom. The ironic thing is that the game doesn't require the key unless you want to play online multiplayer...
Anyway, apparently you fixed it so nevermind.
ok sry to bump this thread again but i have the exact same problem that the orginal poster had, i downloaded the game though steam and im trying to patch it, steam dosnt say there are any avalible patches for the the game so i went forum trolling and found some links to the 'digitaly downloaded' version of the game, i try that patch and got the error message saying it couldnt find the game. i have a feeling i just got a link to the wrong patch, if that is the case could some1 post a link to a patch that will work for the game instaled via steam?
P.S. i origanly went looking for a patch because i was getting a CTD every few minutes and was hoping there was a patch out to fix it.
