    Hey guys, I recently moved, and in the process, lost my jewel case for COD4, though I still have the CD. Then when I installed Vista on my machine, I had to reinstall COD.

    However, Activision is a bunch of dicks, and refuse to help me out here. Anyone know of a legit way to get a CD key to use? Or an illegitimate one, I don't care, Activision is on my bad list right now.

    you could probably find one but that will only allow you to access SP. punkbuster will know your key is bad not allow you to join PB servers

    According to his post, he reformatted his machine with Vista after he moved. There is probably no recovering that key. Chances are that it was written over in the format.

    I would look for a sale on Cod4. Possibly at Circuit City, if you're in the states, they periodically run sales on their new and popular computer games...

    Go to a local lan, pick random guy's pc that has cod4, go to Start >> Run >> Type Regedit >> Press Enter >> HKLM >> Software >> Activision >> Call of Duty 4 >> codkey, the number/value = key.

    There ya go, free legal key.

    I wouldn't do it either, if I need a legal key to play online (which I do alot) I buy the game. I'm not afraid to pirate a game here or there but most of my games are legal.

    But I've seen plenty of people use this method though, however, not to get just 1 key, but multiple, to cheat their way up to eurocup on clanbase...

    One of the many reasons I always put a password on my boot and windows if I go to lan and I always press "windows key + L" when I leave my pc behind for a couple of mins (or hours after the matches, then it's beer drinking time with clanmates :p).

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try that link!

    Yeah, I pirate the occasional software, but all of my multiplayer games are legit. I just really don't want to go spend more money on something I already bought once, when every other game producer gladly would help you out in this situation (I know from previous experience). Damn Activision...

    Hmmz at least some people dare admit that they occasionally download things. Sure people that only download their games are lame, but so are the prices these days for some games and I just dislike people that are on a holy crusade.

    But if u consider something worth spending your money on, you should buy it.

    This has happened to me before. Bottom line: you have no one to blame but yourself. I didn't even write my fkn key down.

    I sent you a PM where you can find one.

    As for the rest of you saying to "buy it again." Give me a break.
