Re-formatting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm not planning on a reformat any time soon, but when you guys reformat and reinstall Windows, etc., do you have to buy new copies of games that require a CD key or are you allowed to use them again due to the same IP?

If this is the wrong section, please feel free to move this.

yea for internet games, as long as you aren't using the key on 2 different computers at once, you're fine. for offline games, you can use the key on as many computers as you want at the same time (not that I'm recommending that you do that)
