Can't start the game (CD key code problems)

Unread post by curly » Thu Jul 01, 2010 7:20 pm

I started installing HD2, entered the cd key code when promted,all ok. Carried on installing to the end, all ok. But when I try and start the game up pops " invalid cd key code". it accepted the correct code and it won't accept any incorrect codes and I've tried re-installing it. Can anyone help, please! I saw the post of a member with similar probs with no results but its an old post. Any new idea's????

I do not know if this helps,just try out a few more keys from the inet.
and you don`t need to reinstall,you can change your key in the registry,thats the path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Illusion Softworks\Hidden & Dangerous 2
www.object-arts.de.tl
Idee := Brain.Activate(self);

Have you tried the no-cd crack? does that help at all?

Thanks for the replies,guys.
this might sound a stupid question but how do I find out which version of the game I've got?
This was needed when I found a link for a no-cd crack, first it said I have to install a patch for my version of the game????
I appreciated your help but I need simpilar talk-thru's.

I couldn't follow the path for possibly changing the key code.

Clicking on autopatch brings up 'fatal error'

when following the instruction to replace the HD2 exe, do I replace it with the whole .rar file or try and extract the .exe from within?

I've tried replacing the exe with two versions of the no-cd fixes( one at a time) but when I try running the game I get 'installation error'


More helo required.....I NEED to play this game.

I'm assuming you are just trying to play the original H&D2 game on it's own, not with the expansion? if so, what I would do is uninstall the game. Delete the directory to make sure it's all gone. Then re-install the game then install the 1.12 patch straight away (don't start the game to test), download the 1.12 patch here. Then get the no-cd crack for 1.12 and see what happens.

Do any of the cds have scratches on them? did it install okay the first time?
