Multiple Use of Installation Serial Codes

Post by fluffypumpkin on Sun Apr 06, 2014 4:02 am

Just throwin' it out there..
Tired of hearing people out in Sims world saying that you can't use a serial code multiple times..

How is the system even going to know that?

For instance, if you didn't even have internet, how is the install program going to know that people have used a serial code more than once?

Hello,

If you download the base game from G4TW (or from most other uploaders that released the game pre-September 2012), you do not need to worry about this issue, since there is no way of knowing (for EA) whether you used a serial code multiple times.

There is, however, a newer base game version available, that was released after September 2012. For that newer version, you need to have an Origin account, and the game must be "activated" via Origin. And every time you want to play, you need to log into Origin too.

But I don't think you need to worry too much about this "newer" version; I guess most (or even all) uploaders have uploaded the "old" base game.

Hope this helps you ! Smile
