View Full Version : cd key/file location

Does anyone know what file the cd key is stored in, if it is at all? I lost my case and would like to install the gwx mod, but it requires a clean install of SH3. I do not want to uninstall the game without finding my key first.

You'll have a problem with copywrite paranoia, in getting this info out of UBI. I'm sure if you contact them, they must know where in the registry/folder/file the 'Key' is kept.

Ask/PM one of the moderators - they can put you onto somebody (No pun intended http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif )

Keep "CTRL" key pressed when you start SH3.
This will open the Starforce activation window
and it displays your game key.
Use copy/paste to save your full key into a document.

Thank you so much. I have had this game installed since a week after it's release. I need to wipe my drive and do a clean install of windows=P
Time for me to start to try some mods.
Thanks again!
