Hey all,

1. there was a question earlies in this thread about the game being in german. When you want to install it you can only choose between french and english, not that it bothers me but is there going to be a language update also?

2. The mail said that my serial number would be in it, but there is for sure no serial in it^^ (maybe a translation fault?)

Greetings

I'm guessing with the player key it's "If at first you don't succeed, try again" and in case you run out of re-downloads, it seems you just need to mail the help (think I read that somewhere).

It said the link is different for each person who bought the game, so don't give it away, wonder if that's only for re-download purposes, or if it's also got something to do with your license to the game.

The Sam&Max purchase I got gave me a link to a file in which my order number was incorporated into. If I had the demo, I should just enter my order number to activate, but the download I got had that entered already, so even if I lost the e-mail I could still play without having to find a key for it. And it'd also make people more cautious of spreading around the installer if your own key is incorporated into your download. That's what I've seen anyway, people might not have a problem giving a person a copy of the game, but they won't part with their key, for good reason. What if they couldn't give away a copy without giving away their key? That'd solve a lot of trouble with copying I'd think.

Like in TM any player key can probably be activated only once, so the game will be useless to anyone else who downloads it I think.

Oh I hope I can install it more than once. Mainly because I really don't feel like buying the game all over again if I upgrade my computer (which I am considering doing in the not too distant future).

Including your own key as part of the installer would, especially in a game as online oriented as TMU, mean that if you gave away your .exe installer, you also gave away your internet key, meaning whoever you gave it to could pose online as you. I don't know how the starforce online scheme works, never used it before, but if it checks against a server occationally it could note down how many were playing with the same key.

The whole "how many installs to limit to" question is one reason I prefer disc based protection, even if it's hard to get nocd for like starforce. Because if I move computer, I don't have to re-purchase the game. I decided to buy the download this time because I really could use to free up a CD drive again since TM is still stuck in there and has been for almost 2 years now.

I'd think you would just enter your key and log in with the login and password you used before...
Just keep the setup somewhere and you won't have to redownload either.

Ok, I ordered, paid and downloaded it but what I don't understand is why French speaking countries get to play now and the rest of the world has to wait untill next year. What a great gesture: 10000 copies for the rest of the world!!!
Whats the problem with these french people?

Germany has a longer process for release. Our publisher told us that the gold was too late for this year, which we both regret. We have found this distribution solution for the worldwide community. I am also sorry of this and wish some german players will grab the online version so they can prepare the arriving of all the wide audience german speaking players that will have ranking, manialink and maniazones already filled by the most expert players of TM.
i suppose this means every non french publisher cant get it published that soon...
