well i just bought a legit copy of ut2003, it was an opened box.. but i figured it would be ok.. i come home and the game is asking for a cd key.. now im not asking for a cd key, im just asking where the hell they put it!! all i got was a manual, and 3 cd's i dont see a cdkey anywhere.. it says its on the jewel case.. but it has no jewel case...

if you bought ut2003, where does epic put the cd key???

Good deal.

I would find you on a Low-G Instagib 135 gamespeed CTF server, but I'd get slapped because of my Mighty 1300 Ping.

The initial run of UT2003 manuals were totally botched by one of the printers. Not only did many manuals lack the printed cd key on the back, but a big batch were printed entirely in shades of orange ink.

Mine is 3cd's and the last cd isnt important for the install. It demands it, then asks if you want to install directx 8.1........ then when you say no it finishes.

anyone know if you can buy the diablo II style cd jewel cases? eg ones that can hold 3 + cds?

in the UK it comes in a DVD box with 3 CDs on top of each other.

the CD key is in the manual.

Well I lucked up and snagged the game several days before most of the guys on here had it and ended up getting one of those lovely orange manuals, fortunately the cdkey was still printed on the back though. Hey wonder if I can call it a 'limited edition' manual yet, heh. :D

btw, Baron I owe you some serious ownage for that last whoppin' you gave me playin' ghey low-grav. Look me up on irc.progameplayer.com (irc://irc.progameplayer.com) #vto, show what real UT2k3 IG is all about :afro:

My overpriced Australian copy came in 3 paper sleaves with the key printed on the manual as normal.

Mine was also an ozzie copy with 3 paper sleeves and the key printed on the back of the manual.
