Serial key problem

Post by onlythename on Wed 03 Feb 2016, 01:08

I have only installed the base game and when I try to run the game it asks for the serial key again and it just keeps popping up. I've looked at the forum to see how to fix it and I have copied the cracked .exe file into the correct folder but it still keeps doing the same thing. Please help, it would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forum @onlythename,


You must have at least one (1) of the expansions or stuffpacks installed in order for this to work. It doesn't matter which expansion you choose, just install at least one of them. See the guide here, and in particular the steps from #2 to #5:

Good luck, and do keep us posted. Smile
