View Full Version : Anyway to play over lan with only 1 key?
Jun 4 2009, 20:23
My cousin brought me home this copy of ArmA 2 from Germany last week and it is awesome. Anyway, my brother got his new pc and we want to play, but we cant over lan since you need more than one key. Is there anyway around this, they are both my computers pretty much so why should I need to buy the game twice.

Legally, no. That's all I'll say.

It depends. For instance, Far Cry 2 allows you to install it on up to 3 computers at a time. I'm not sure if that's a loop hole or not but it doesn't seem like something that should be frowned upon. Ideally though, that's three of your own computers, not theirs. So probably not. Since you'll have to use your own key three times on systems that aren't yours.. probably not :/
I think they only way you'd be able to do this is by joining a dedicated server that has KickDuplicate turned off.
The only legal way is, buy another copy of ArmA2.

We cannot buy another copy. Thats what sucks.
digital download is easy as pie (for most).
One licence (key) per computer, has always been like that.
If there is money for a shiny new PC, there surely is also a 40 Euros to buy another copy.
