View Full Version : I'm with Coastie on Ubi's practices

If <b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">Ubi[/b] sent out an email with new 4.05 keys, it prolly went to me bulk (spam) folder, which I always delete. I originally downloaded 4.05 with the boonty bundle, I put it in a completely seperate file from my IL-2 folder, chose the needed files from the download and updated my game, I took those files and created a zip file for the patch. I have reloaded the game two or three times since then and the patch zip works great. Needless to say I deleted all other files and the old key along with it. It would of been nice to know you would need it for 4.06-4.07. What I'm hoping is that when you do the download version it will recognize your email addy and tell you your key code again. Since Boonty is putting the patch out it should'nt be the Zoo that is <b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">Ubi[/b].... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

I do not agree.

I used the very same method you did.
Never had to enter any key to get the add-on installed correctly.

Never received an email recently with a new key.

Someone at <b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">Ubi[/b] just made a mistake... pressed the wrong buttons, no problem.

If they would dare to try and matchup a 4.06m/7m download to a previously downloaded and installed 4.05m... me thinks they'll be in big trouble.
They do not seem to be the smartest kind regarding the distribution of this game's components, but I do not think they are complete fools... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif

Oh well, I've been wrong before... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Those that did not enter a key would have used the 404 exes and avoided the need to register from the get-go. If you installed by the book (Boonty book that is) you would need to enter the key before the game would run the first time because the 405 exes are designed to request it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
