Thread: Can i install Arma DVD on two different computers?

  1. #11
    That's such BS that your not supposed to install on differnt machines if you only play on one at a time.
    It's almost as bad as me having to have seperate insurance policies on each vehicle I own when I can only drive on at a time.

    Can't say I remember what the arma eula said (hint didn't read) but in general they have gone kind of too far. Fair usage, eg one used key at a time should be more than enough. Atm you can't use more than one since you have to carry the cd with you anyway... reverse engineering (no-cd cracks) is against the eula so what are they really preventing with this extra and really annoying "only install on one computer" poo.
    eh, who listens anyway...
    go for it
    I won't not promise to avoid refraining from harming you.

    I fondly remember games like Total Annihilation, where you were explicitly allowed to install the game on multiple computers and up to three people could play over the network, as long as at least one of them had the disc inserted. So six people could play with two discs and so on.

    I wonder why that isn't done anymore.

    If you go on with this, you risk a perma ban.
    Think about that, before this reaches the point of no return.

    A fact, but who gives a damn anyway? I risk being banned from the forums if I have my OFP copy installed on 3 comps, and ArmA on 2 comps? O_O

    Everybody should, at the end we talk about a form of software piracy, right?

    The "EULA" says it is not allowed, but it's perfectly legal.

    An actual lisence agreement is a very different thing from a retail purchase with a disclaimer; and copywright law makes no issue of how many machines you install your software on as long as they all belong to you.

    I'm sure someone will want to argue this point until the cows come home, and others will cry piracy, but please do us all a favour and look up the law before you bother.

    Really this is a no brainer question. Apply common sense.
    No one cares.
    The retailer has your money. Enjoy your product.

    I'm not trying to argue with you - because you're mostly right, but I just wanted to say, copyright law differs from country to country. Looking up copyright law in the US would not yield the same results in this case, as looking up copyright law in Germany for example.

    I believe what you said about installing on as many machines as you like is not applicable everywhere.

    Can you drive two vehicles at the same time?

    Talking

    This is all heading into murky territory. Lets just say that we would hope that anyone who plays the game is abiding by the EULA and local Intellectual Property and Copyright laws.
