I went to play DC today and to my horror I got the error message that my CD Key was in use. Now what the *ZIP* goes with this. Is EA just boffing us who purchased the game and letting the pirates have a free time. They really need to remove the CD Key in use KRAP so those of us who have been screwed can still play.

Has any one else had their key STOLEN by some scum bag?

:mad: as hell!

This has happened to me before. But what I did was reinstall and it worked. Strange.

Same here. Doubt your key was stolen. Its happened to me as well, the only way to get it workin again for me was a reinstall. I also get invalid cd key every once in awhile too. Same procedure, do a reinstall and all is well again. Its quite annoying but one of the things Ive had to learn to live with in this game. Maybe a future patch will resolve it. But not likely.

Wow, thats alot! What and where did you do your search ShorD, cause here were my results using the search button above.

cd key = 56 results key = 347 results invalid = 99 results

Thats still plenty of info to take in but I was just curious as to if there is a better way.

Oh, and 197 results for "wtf". Come on, I should get way more than that!!!!

Yep, I did a re-install. It works now. I hope EA fixes that Nasty Bug with BIG pointy teeth! LOL!

Thanks again.

PS: The search feature is like a windows feature. It did not work when I tried it.:deal:
