after the 1.02 patch came out, I have not been able to play sof2 mp on my LAN. I can play it on one pc only. I own only one copy of the game. I have no problems playing sof2 mp with the 1.01 patch with 2 pcs running with one cd key. Is there any way around the 1.02 patch so that I am able to play sof 2 on multiple pcs on the LAN(with one cd key)? Any help is appreciated
Unfortunatly, playing this game on 2 pcs is breaking the user agreemeant, and you are not allowed to do this. I know it sounds stupid. You own both PCs, but you cant use the game at the same time on both. PB also prevents you from breaking the licence. So you will have to either install another copy of the game for your LAN on each machine, or buy another copy...
Thank you dave for your reply. Yeah, that is really dumb. I own the copy of the game and 2 pcs. Yet I have to buy a copy of the game for both. I hope this doesnt continue for future releases by raven or any other company for that matter.
Unfortunatly it will continue. As you dont own the game. When you pay for it, all you get is the "right to use it" within the terms of the agreement. :uhoh:
never thought of it that way....
Thats the thing, most people dont see it that way and use it to justify copying games. (Im not accusing you of anything, just stating a fact :))
