Hi! I've been playing ArmA: 2 and ArmA: 2 Operation Arrowhead for the past month now. It's been a lot of fun. Recently, I have download a third party mod called, DayZ. I've been playing DayZ for about 2 days now and I've recently stumbled upon a error saying "CD Key in use". I tried and tried and tried to join a server, yet it keeps giving me the same error. Today I have been able to access a server and it comes to find out I am somewhere totally different than I last left off. I have lost most of my gear, and I am totally clueless on what's going on.
I contacted Steam Support under the category of "Lost of Missing CD Key" and they replied back to me saying that they cannot help me and that I need to come here to get a new CD key. 1-2 days ago I have recently contacted you guy's support team, and it said "we'll be back to you as soon as possible (ASAP). It's been forever now, because I had to wait for steam to reply (took 4 days) and I'm still awaiting a reply. I cannot play ArmA: 2 or ArmA: 2 Operation Arrowhead's singleplayer, nor multiplayer due to the error: "CD Key in use". I have a picture of it that I took via Fraps, and I would like for someone to tell me what is going on and how I can maybe get a new CD key. I really do not feel like making a whole new Steam account, and re-buying ArmA: 2 Combined Operations all back over again.
It's sad because I can't play a game that I had bought with my own money. I really want to play again, and I'm a bit skeptical on what is going on. I don't know who to contact, and I don't know what to do. I had bought the game via Steam and I have a Steam account. Please someone, I need help regarding my CD issues.
