Re: about cd key

you don't understand , i bought the original cd's , i have the original cdkeys , i just lost the cd's (only the d2 ones , i have the lod one ). I was asking if a cd-key is ment for only the game from the case you got the cdkey from or for any other pair of diablo cd's .

for instance : me and my friend both have d2 original , can i use my cd-keys with his cd's or do my cdkeys work for only my cd's .

for counter strike you buy the cd key from the shop and just download the game and use your legit cdkeys ? does this apply to d2 ?
 
Re: about cd key

Downloading is never an option, but if you do own original bought CD-key copies there must be some way to recover the game. Check Stompwompa's guide. Look through the stickies and Mod signatures for it.

The last option is definitely not usually done with D2. I'll look into the guide for you.

edit2: here and there.

thx for the help :d

from what the guide says , cd keys should work with any game but they actually don't .... i'm guessing the version i downloaded was altered .

Re: about cd key

When using dubious downloads, you are at a risk of installing trojans or viruses that way and BTW, it's still software piracy, even if you are the rightful owner of the keys.

The core game CDs are only needed for installing the game. For playing it, you only need the LoD CD, so install the core game through the CDs of your friend. Installing the expansion will need one of the core CDs as well IIRC. I'm not sure about installing the latest patch. You are better doing all that while you have the core CDs at hand.

I can confirm that the CD-keys work with every set of discs.
Don't trust that downloaded version you got there!

Re: about cd key

i succesfully installed the game with my cd-keys but now i have another problem . although the lod iso image is mounted the game still asks for the cd . is there any way behind this ? making another image from the original cd is not an option :/
