I know theres a way to find it if the game is installed on the computer, but its not and I lost the manual with the CD key on it. Is there anyway I can scan one of the installation discs for it?
Theres many ways to find the key if it is installed on the HD, just search google. Well looks like im going to go buy one of those value packs that includes the game and a couple expansions for 30 bucks.Originally posted by: MikeyLSU
I went through this same thing. First off, even if it was installed on a computer you can't get the key. In one of the patches they changed the registry so you can't find your key. They said it was for "security", lol. Second, you can get a new key from EA, but you have to send them your CD to prove you own it, then they charge something like $10 to ship it back to you...wasn't worth it for me.
This was nearly a year ago so it could have changed slightly with their pricing.
