    I’ve got the same problem with FEAR 2 cd-key from OKS, and I make some search: the cd-key is from DLGamer, you need the DLGamer version for play, good luck for find it…

  2. KeitaroBaka Avatar

    I wont go again to OKS. Okay they link you to a cracked copy with maybe a valid serial. BUT i don’t wan’t to use a cracked game that has maybe some kind of protection still running and then mess with my account. That’s not an option.

    Coren if you want DoW2 i suggest you to try

    The site may look like shit, but I got my DoW2 key from here, and activated on steam. Still no probleme after 3 months. I also got BF2 and BF2142 from there and still no problem too.

    I can backup KeitaroBaka’s story above. I too got FEAR2 from OKS and was told to get the game from a warez site.

    However, the guy from OKS is right about the game not being linked to your Steam account. Not sure there ever was a non-Steam version of FEAR2, but these warez versions are uncoupled from Steam, you don’t even have to start Steam to play. So there’s no risk of getting banned.

    Still, I agree that this is indeed very fishy. What’s more, once you get a warez version you don’t even NEED a keycode anymore to play online (don’t know how this works exactly, but at no point was I asked for a key). So in the end you end up with a pirated copy of the game with the consolation that you have a supposedly valid copy somewhere.

    Doesn’t do it for me, I’m afraid. In the future I’ll just stay away from anything not branded “Steam” or “EA Download Manager” on OKS.

    I am very tempted to get Dawn of War II for Steam from OKS, though. Can anyone assure me that there’s absolutely no risk that these keys are illegal and that my account is safe?

    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 02:55 PM) or was there a retail version not needing steam ?
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 02:56 PM) it means retail not using steam yes lol
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 02:57 PM) such a version existed ? is it possible to point me to a link to download it ?
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 02:57 PM) of course it exists not everything is steam, it just means its from dvd
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 02:58 PM) yeah but the DVD was using a steam installer and made you register the game to a steam account.
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 02:59 PM) I think there’s only this version as on steam site they were proud to have FEAR2 using steamworks in a news
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 03:02 PM) and steam tells me my key is invalid
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) its from a retail dvd it aint only on steam and the key is not invalid
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) so can you point me to a link to get the installer ?
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:06 PM) http://www.warez-bb….0429&highlight=
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:06 PM) you’ll need to register
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:06 PM) its really easy to get you simply use google lol
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 03:11 PM) ouch it’s just a cracked copy of the steam version
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 03:12 PM) and by using it i take risks of seeing my steam account shut down
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 03:13 PM) i’m not at ease with that :s
    Keitaro Icon : (Today, 03:28 PM) is it possible to get a refund as the order was not what i was expecting, and so don’t want to put my steam account in peril ?
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) no its not a cracked copy of the steam version its a bloody retail dvd
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) and no refunds you should have looked at the icons saying no steam before you bought
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) i have retail dvd version and it works fine
    ElItE_HaXoR Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) and it will have nothing to do with your steam account anyway

    OnlineKeyStore may not be that good !

    I just bought a FEAR2 key, supposed to be used in steam as retail uses it. It’s mandatory. They could not be registered, and the admin oriented me on a cracked copy of the game to use my key. The cracked copy would put my Steam account on the verge of banning. Oh ! And the key does not match the format given by the retail cd keys page on Steam.

    I opened a request of refund through paypal. I’ll keep you informed.

    I’ve bought a Cd-key of Dawn of War 2 at this site:
    They have really good prices infact i’ve bought dow2 at 13.99 $ (about 10 euros) it’s a real bargain!

  8. ricky Avatar

    There are some websites that I found out and aren’t listed here.
    I’ve bought a Dawn of War 2 and HL2+CS:Source CD_Keys from and they worked allright for half the price on Steam.

    There is also, but it seems its the same than the one above (same price, they link to each other and the email I received with the CD-Keys mentioned both websites).

    hope it helps
