CD Key Question

I was wondering, will there be a cd key required to play JK2? or for multiplayer at least?

They may follow Medal of Honor and put the installation over 2 discs as well as having a CD Key.

Hey, this $100 looks phony! *takes it to the lab* JO will definetly be on 2 cds, like JK was, but i don't know about a key. Lucas Arts games usually don't have em. GB didn't have one.

I DID ask that in the gamesdomain chat with the developers. I asked it TWICE!
Did THEY answer it? NO! They simply avoided it. The question got posted twice and they ignored it twice!

Multiplayer will probably require a genuine cd key checked on the master server like quake 3 and Elite Force which will not allow 2 people with the same key to play at the same time- although Medal Of Honour doesnt have cd checking and is playable online with the same cd key by different users.

Yeah, but this is Raven/id, and their games (EF, Q3A, and Q3:TA) have CD keys, much like Half-Life.

Yeah, Half-Life's CD-Keys stopped those pirates dead.

Half-Life was a good game. (No unique territory there..) And I never played one minute of multi-player, so I was saved being tainted.


Insert a witty and thought-provoking quote here, I can't think of any.

What information do you have that it is on 2 cd's? I have yet to see anything official on this Based on the system requirements from the official site for installing the game you only need 665MB of hard drive space compared too 800mb for a game like Return to Castle Wolfenstein which fit on one disc. I could see maybe 2 cds to play all the great star wars music but RTCW had a decent length soundtrack and again all fit on one cd. The only reason I could see for 2 cds would be out of tradition but I would be happier with just one.

If having two CD's required for instillation and a CD Key means a better, or safer, or something like that JO community, then I'm all for it.

If people don't have to buy the game to play it, then that is a sales loss for LEC (like it really matters for them) and Raven. LEC can afford any type of loss they suffer, so I'm not worried about ripping anything from them. But Raven is a different story. These guys working there aren't all millionaires ya know. They don't ride around wearin' gold chains and rings all over the place in their Dodge Vipers. So if they get HUGE sales, then LEC might team up with Raven again and make more games with them for us to play. But if they don't make too many sales (think on a nation and worldwide sale level) then they might not make any more games.

What is the purpose to this post?, I guess it was meant as humor
but I didnt quite get it. What was your point?

I'm kinda hoping that it is like 5 cds. But that is just my love of rendered cut scenes I guess. If it has as many movies as the first JK, than it will definetely have to be more than 1 cd.

Spread it out over five discs, stick it with the standard q3 cd key system, it doesn't much matter to me. I'm buying it either way and none of those things will be terribly inconvenient to me.

even if there were more cut scenes than in JK1 there wouldnt be any need for it to go on more than 1 cd and they already said its gonna be on 1 cd

It is the Q3:TA engine after all. Why take out the CDKey stuff?

JKII will definately run on 2 discs... theres not a good reason why it wouldn't. If Im right, it'll be as long and contain as much, if not more content, than CnC Renegade did, and they put it on 2 CDs.

Crackers wont need to be doing a lot of work. Its just like cracking a Q3:TA CDkey, unless Raven upgraded the encryption level of the Keys.

Ya got me, I have an entire beta, the multiplayer bot ai need some tweaking though. My piece of crap system runs the game great though probably cause there are no large outdoor enviroments. Fans of the previous will love this version and the voice acting is good. I wish I could only describe to you the role vehicles play in the game but youll just have to wait.

I don't think MOHAA multiplayer checks your CD Key though. I had it cracked and it works in Multiplayer too

I dont have a beta or anything of JO, I recently even deleted the movies to make some harddrive space, jedialphaknight was so insisting he saw my desktop and saw an icon that I played along.

Oh jedialphaknight check your private messages.

I dont think its reasonable to compare it to C&C Renegade. Remember C&C Renegade was Westwood's first attempt at building a 3-d shooter type game and game engine like that and so they may not know how to utilize space as efficent as Raven. Its also possible(dont go into shock) that the game is not as long as Jedi Knight.

Heres what they said from the recent chat:

JuryDuty: How much playtime will this game have compared to JK?

Kevin S: That's pretty hard to say for sure. JKII is plenty long

If the game is shorter do you think there gonna just come out and say so, Of Course Not!!. I wouldn't if I worked there. I think there answer may be evading a shorter length Then JK, Remember the complaint that most people had about the last game they released: Elite Force was too short. Plus JO had a pretty short development time of slightly over a year. Most lengthy first person shooters games have a 2-3 yr development time. But I dont care, if the game is fun the replay value on this one may be good and the multiplayer will keep me busy until Unreal 2.

It'll be one CD only i'm pretty sure and you won't need the CD to play MP, just like you don't need it to play Half-life, RtCW or any other FPS game.
