Any chance of Steam keys for X2?

Post by andrewc » Mon, 2. Dec 13, 20:03

Is it possible to provide Steam keys for X2 for X2 disc version owners who would rather not have their computers infested with Starforce again?

I tried activating X2 on steam using my X2 registration code, but it doesn't work

My code is registered with the forums and I can provide photo's of the disc if necessary. I thought I'd thrown it out but found it again - like a bad penny :)

Edit: clarified title

The technique described here allows you to install X2 on a system which isn't compatible with the copy protection. It also works if you simply don't want it to be installed.

Thanks for the advice, but I'd rather not have that disc anywhere near my PC. Starforce broke my DVD drive the one and only time I installed X2, so you'll understand my caution.

If you follow the instructions then the copy protection is never installed. Your only other option is to buy the game again on Steam.
