Ea Download Manager 2142 Problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Basically last november i bought 2142 off of EA store and downloaded it with EA DM

recently i got a new motherboard and processor so vista needed to be reinstalled.

this ment i formatted my hard drive.

i forgot to back up the download

i didn't pay the extra $6 for the extended download service and they say that you shoul back it up. (after 6 months they wont let you download it again basically)

first this is utter bulls**t (hooray for thinly censored swearing)

second is there anyone else here who would be willing to, if they have it send me a burnt copy of their 2142 download from ea dm

I dont think this is illegal as all the installer downloads are the same and it will still register itself to my EA DM account (i did it before with northern strike as i just borrowed his installer when i couldn't download it again as at that time (july or so) i had backed up 2142 installer to somewhere on my hard drive but not northern strike and it worked fine (shame he hasn't got 2142 of of EA DM he bought a disk.)

im willing to pay for this as well say 5 quid or so as it will save me from forking out 17 for another copy

Moral of the story is EA SUCK A**E and buy games on disk or off of steam.

I personally don't own the game so sorry about that,but that really sucks forcing you to repay just to download a game? Ea has been pulling a lot of **** lately I hope they go out of business soon all I can say is (mod delete this if you want to) torrent it. You own the game you got f***ed over. Also if this is setting a bad example all torrent copies of battlefield are unable to go online without a proper cd key.
