I bought the CE and it took almost a half hour to unlock it last night. It was excruciating.

Just be patient. It will unlock. Took me a solid 45 minutes to get HL: Source and HL2 unlocked.

Never mind, I figured it out. You aren't supposed to include the last 8 characters on the sticker.

Yeah. I had the same problem. Just enter the first 25 characters - NOT the number before "HALFLIFE 2".

GOOD LUCK AFTER THIS STEP. YOU'RE PROBABLY GONNA NEED IT.

It's a shame they dont.

On a serious note, this is absolute rubbish. You have bought and paid for the game and now you are expected to "unlock" it ? What kind of logic is this ?

Default Re: cant register key

every one send the following email to Valve,
"RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!"

seriously though, they screwed over alot of people who paid for the game and probably will not slow down the pirates at all. Great game programmers, shoddy everything else.
