BC2 issues

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I bought a second copy of bc2, this time from steam so i could get Vietnam, issue i'm having is i gave the other copy, my physical copy, to a friend so he could use it. he installed just fine, but now it's telling him that code is in use with a diff. bc2 user... How do I get that code off of my account so the only code i have is from the steam version i bought (second copy of bc2), giving him the ability to utilize the first copy of the game on his PC without that message coming up telling him its already in use? thanks

The CD key is tied to your BC2/email account.

I'm assuming that the CD key that you use with your BC2 account is the one from your physical copy. Continue using it wherever you play.

Give the CD key you received from Steam to your friend and tell him to make a new BC2 account with it. If you did that already, then he can play with that account, wherever he is.

You have bought the game twice, so you have 2 CD keys. You should have 2 BC2 accounts if you've already linked the keys. Tell him to log in using the second account.
