It seems to me that the people who would be most likely to, as you said, "send factor5 an email and BEG them for the code," would be people who actually own the game. It also seems logical that people who own the game would go to the Rogue Squadron forum. And it is pretty obvious that it is kind of annoying how you posted this in just about every forum on JKNet. So, why didn't you just post this in the Rogue Squadron forum, and leave it at that?
