@Hellifant: First of all, start using your own original CD-key...!

Sorry then! (Note that we are really serious about the anti-warez rules.) You shouldn't have used that language, though...

I'm really sorry to bring up a thread over a year old. But...

I think I got banned from BF2 a couple days ago, and I can't find any information about it.
I too was trying to find a way around using the CD every time. I gave up with making an image from the disk because it never worked. Then I found a no CD exe somewhere on the internet.

In my infinite knowledge, I ran the game and got caught. Said my CD key was invalid. This is a legitimate copy of the game, FYI. I figured it caught the crack, banned the key, pissed me off.

I go buy another copy today. Install it with its new key, and it STILL says my key is invalid. Does this ban go out to the profile as well? I figure it saw the profile which was banned from the other key and it bans my new one too. I tried making a new profile and running Special Forces(which hasn't been run yet at the time). INVALID.

If I buy another copy, thus putting this game at $90 dollars, run it fresh with a new key and new profile, should it run? Or is my PC/IP entirely banned forever? I'm starting to think they banned my lappy entirely from the get go.

I'd greatly appreciate some guidance. If this isn't ever going to work for me.. giving up now before I drop some more money.

Never use cracks when you are playing online. Mini-images or images are fine, but not the cracks. The anticheat programs we'll always look for the file integrity.

You could've contacted EA support before going to buy another copy. So for the better contact EA support. Expect to be a pain, but as long a syou have the proof of purchase, no one would accuse you for anything. Just say that your little brother messed with your laptop and you weren't home when that happened.

Any online game that uses punkbuster will boot ya and you can not play online with a crack.Call of duty BF and BF2 .Hope you get Black listed once you do you will need to change computers ,Punkbuster takes in record of your IP and Computer hardware so even if you switch out NIC's it sees your hardware Serial numbers and will not let ya play.I had to swap Video cards Nic and processer on my friends to get him back online.

That was a useless trolling post.

Only time it would have said cd-key invalid is if its been used by others, in your attempts to play without the cd you may have picked up a keylogger in a file and someone has gotten it.

Proof of purchase like said is a good as it proves its yours etc.

So uh, do you guys think my account got flagged, or my PC got banned entirely?

If it's just the account, I can try it one more time with a fresh copy and brand new online account.

If it's the hardware, I think I'm just out of luck. I'd REALLY like to get this game working. A lot of my friends play it and love it... I'd like to get in on that.

I emailed EA for BF2 and just get a generic auto-response saying I need to reapply the key through the registry. I realize I could be in one of those freak cases, but it seems way to coincidental in these circumstances.

What can I do? Think calling EA would do anything?

You may have to get a hold of Punkbuster and have see if your hardware got banned. They may not release your Hardware ID.

Call the support. Emailing EA won't solve anything, as they seem to release this kind of automatic responses. Make sure you have the proof of purchase nearby(both of them). Try to remain calm(it's like talking to a brick wall and the use of sledgehammer it's not recommended). Expect to lose between 15min and a hour at the freaking phone.

fyi post

I got the game to work... and I couldn't be more upset and happy at the same time.

The first battlefield game I had was the Deluxe edition. The second was that mega pack with all four of the things together. First got banned. Second did not although I thought it did. All I needed to do was start the game from the 'run as an administrator' command. Works like a charm.

So for future reference, recommend people do that for troubleshooting. It works.
