FYI: You won't get a CD key with the game. Most people on the steam forums are complaining about not being able to play MP.

I encountered another issue. I used my key from the retail copy I have, but can't join any MP server. I get an error saying "FEARL_7.Arch00" is missing. But, its there and its also in the Default.archcfg file

I notice they don't mention multiplayer in the ad. I wonder if it's $10 because they have no keys for multi and don't plan to create any.

I doubt it though, this happens on Steam all the time with old games. Valve will eventually provide keys.

It would be funny if they didn't though.

another logitech fix:

http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1279444

Since I have seen so many posts about it and people still asking, this is for the answer.

This is a known compatibility issue with the original F.E.A.R. engine and Logitech G series keyboards and mice, with an emphasis on the former.

This is caused by the engine incorrectly overpolling the USB I/O in Windows. This is mainly apparent in all versions of Windows 7.
Logitech is not at fault - there are some apparent flamers here - which is why Logitech products work with a literal 99% of games.

TO FIX

Simply go into the Start menu and right-click "Computer", choose "Manage".

From there, go to "Device Manager" and choose "Human Interface Devices".

To get the best performance, you are going to want to disable all "HID-Compliant Device", you should not need to disable ANYTHING else.

Note: for the most part, these are used for the interfaces on the keyboards, which is why there is anywhere from 3-7, any applets will be disabled until these HID devices are re-enabled

For those of you who want to play MP and having trouble, I wrote a guide on the Steam forums....


http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1281465


I was playing earlier, and DAMN THIS GAME IS FUN WITH MP!!! Seriously, I haven't had so much fun in an MP deathmatch in a long time!

If anyones interested, I'm gonna be dustin' off the ol' FEAR server here pretty soon. Will post with details.
