I had an illegal copy of the game, loved it, got read hissy cos it was buggy.
thought balls to it, 'get on eeeeebay', bid on a copy and paid 14 gbp for it, sat happy knowing that soon, a legit copy would drop thru my door.
While waiting for it to arrive, I started reading the forums and came across this thread, then my heart sank.
Low and behold my copy from ebay arrived, I installed it, tried to reg it, and it didnt work. I was pretty miffed.
So I bought the game online for the 45 dollars or what ever it was, (about 23gbp)
So I now had a copy from ebay, 14 quid, and a legit serial number from galciv2.com another 23 quid. Oh well, the games worth it, I love it and play it when ever i get the chance.
But the story doesnt end there. I emailed the guy who sold me the ebay copy and asked him to transfer his stardock account to me. It took a while, but finally he did, meaning I now have two accounts, two serial numbers. Oh joy! What can I do with two accounts?
anyway, anyone wanna buy a copy with a legit account
:---Stardock - you sell new serial numbers at a discount? can I have partial refund?
