Default Lost my Battlefield 2 keycode, but about to build new computer.

I'm building a new computer and I noticed my Battlefield 2 booklet that has the keycode is now missing. I have the battlefield2 box and DVD, but no keycode. I also have Battlefield 2 installed on my current computer. However, i doubt copying and pasting the game to my new computer will transfer all the needed registries to run the game.

Is there anyway to retrieve this key from my current PC so i can install this game on my new computer? I looked through the registry and ended up empty handed. Is there a program that i can find out what my current keycode is? Anything would help. Thanks in advance.

hmm if u remember my thread i also lost mine. i couldnt find the key code in the registry, so i went out and bought another copy. When i had 2GB on my other system, the game ran really smooth with 64 ppl in a server. Then with this system a patch came out and i only have 1GB right now and it ran real smooth. Then the 1.21 patch or w/e comes out and now i can barely play SP.

Hmm, I was able to go into the registry and find my Sims 2 key (I had the exact same problem with losing the key). I just did a key serch for sims. It was a value in the key. I have no idea of BF2 works the same way as I dont have it installed right now.

I thought the keycode was usually found on the back of the manual.

I just come across this

You can find/modify your BF2 CD-key by hitting Start menu, Run, then typing 'regedit' there. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Electronic Arts\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\ergc - there it is.

AH Dammit!

Since patching, it has now been encrypted, your going to need that instruction manual.

Ive heard of the "CDkey is Invalid" error but not "LOCERROR_cdkeyinvalid"

There is a way for you to get a new CD Key/CD Disk. All you need to do is to call EA Support on 0870 243 2435 (thats if you are in the UK). If you are not in the UK then please follow this link to find your local EA Support Center.

So that's for the UK , contact the EA Support thing, sure they will sort you out a new one, don't go paying out again.
EA get enough of our blasted cash.

Actually EA isnt bad considering they only charge like 10 bucks to get replacement disks. MS charges over 25. I guess getting replacement disks should work since they probably come with a new CD key. You just would have to send the old game disks back to them.

Cause they know people will be in my situation and they want me to buy a new copy of their stupid game that barely works. I talked to CrapEA and they said that the 10 dollar deal is only valid within "90 days of your purchase". So I have to buy a whole new copy to play Battlefield 2 on my new computer. No Thanks.

Events like this make me want to just pirate every EA game ever out and then just getting a server patch.(even though I am COMPLETELY against pirating). Customer service my ***

Did you register the game with EA?

If you did, I would expect that you can call up customer support, and get your key from them.
