I have Battlefield 2 with a legit key. I had played for a little while, got up to 530 global points, whatever. Patch 1.2 came out, I installed it, I got the "CD-Key Invalid" error. I eventually fixed it, but with the installation of patch 1.21 it's broken again.
EA says to go regedit the cd key entry with x9392YOURCDKEYHERE. Doesn't work
I tried without the x9392, doesnt work
I tried entering the key then using the BF2KeyChecker.exe or w/e which rehashes it, still doesnt work.
I updated punkbuster to latest version, doesnt work.
I manually uninstalled twice and reinstalled, didn't work.
Yes, I'm doing this all on the same Windows account.
I'm ready to pull out my hair here, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
