As noted in your other thread, the former owner of the copy you bought probably already activated and used the code, thus rendering it useless to you.  Unless you can get him to transfer his RoF account (e-mail and password) to you, your best bet is to chalk it up to lessons learned (no point in trying to buy used software these days) and just D/L the latest Free-2-Play version from the RoF website and buy whatever planes/content you want from the RoF store (they have sales fairly often that make things dirt cheap).

but it was the boxed version, if you buy a boxed version of windows, its never a problem to get a new key...why not here? its not professional..only the dollar signs inside the eyes of the software producers....not very customer friendly

This has nothing to do with greedy software producers.  This has to do with some chump who bought a used, and obsolete, copy of software without any understanding of how that software was licensced for use.  This isn't 1985 anymore.  You aren't trading 5.4" Floppy disks with your friends in math class.  Don't complain about the developers, because it is completely your fault.

Sorry yes you have been screwed over by an third party selling you what amounts to an empty box. The good things inside already having been consumed.

 

And check your private messages as Hot Lead suggested in your other thread, if you have not done so already, as I suspect another players been rather generous to you, could be wrong though.

sorry if i buy a IL2 forgotten battles second hand game i can play it easily, why not here? its your case, if i buy a boxed game, i wanna play it like a boxed game, i play computer games since atari 2600 ;) and i like classical boxed games, perhaps thats why only a few buyed the game or play it for free..it works for decades boxed games, and you have a full game...but this way i think it is not very custumer friendly

Have you tried contacting the seller and explaining that without his login credentials, the software is useless?

Yeah, as I said before, your misunderstanding of how the software was licensed is your own fault.  Forgotten Battles (from 2003) only required the physical disk, right?.  RoF isn't like that, and to my knowledge, never has been.  Digital Rights Management has changed a lot in the last two decades

ok then they  cant sell boxted games ever, because its normale that people re-sell items, the software producer must look that every owner of the boxed game have the same right :) i think classical and if iam a customer, its my right, if you buy a used windows 7 dvd you can always install the programm, then you call the costumer service and you get a new key, where is the problem? and the boxxted game never inform the customer that only one costumer can use the game..thats a rip off from the software firm aerosoft and 777
and what kind of businees is that that costumer must search informations if it works or not, that is ridiculous...

if you buy a used windows 7 dvd you can always install the programm

 

Not at all. I can sell my Windows 7 CD and keep using the key and whoever buys it won't be able to authenticate the install because I'm already using it. I would have to uninstall my copy and give the key to the buyer.

 

You probably just bought the memorabilia that came in the box and the key was not even part of the bargain.

i can call at the windows service center you get a new key belive me, i bought an old windows xp and windows 7 used...but ok..if you think that policiy is ok, i think its not, a boxxed game should always be 100% playable without stress

You are presuming the DVD contained a complete boxed game.

It never did, it only ever contained the install files. It wasn't delivered like old games were.

Akin to Steam. Try and sell a game you own on Steam.

Once it's linked to your RoF account it is there forever.

 

Install the game, create a user account then activate the product licence against your user account.

Once that is done you can not release the licence to sell. it is forever locked to that account.

Actually the disk you have just enables a couple of planes in your account. 

That is what you have lost in this deal.

 

You can still use the f2p and the 2 free planes to start and build up 

 

There is no such thing as a second hand copy of RoF. The seller should not have sold you the used DVD, because if it is "used" it is no longer valid.

You are not the first to buy  "used" copy of a disk only to find it unusable.

 

It has always been that way

Used boxed version of RoF is a collectible, not a game licence. You'd need to buy prevois owners game account, same way as in massive multiplayer RPGs.

The Mods packages have to be purchased the same as Planes do.

Go to the RoF Shop and you'll see what you have and haven't got.

 

I'd prioritise finding your Radiator Controls before worrying about the Mods ;)

 

Regarding the Mods I expect you'll find most experienced pilots are very selective about which they use, instruments add weight and affect performance.

Try version 3.1
http://www.pwcampaig...PWCGRoF 3.1.zip

And make sure you move interface.gfx from ..\Rise of Flight\data\ to ..\Rise of Flight\data\swf

 

​Once that is in place you should be abe to launch PWCG from the gme if you have the game set to "Mods On"

If you unzipped 3.1 to your Rise of Flight folder. It would have placed interface.gfx in rise of flight\data folder
It should be moved from there to ..rise of flight\data\swf

interface.gfx is packaged in the wrong folder in the zip file.

Does it need to be activated on Steam.

 

There are issues once you buy a steam package.

 

You either stay with steam and buy there DLC for RoF via Steam.

 

Or you stay with the webstore.

 

Once you go to steam you are stuck there, with no option to buy individual aircraft.

can anyone tell me If purchased RoF-ICE Keys (unused) ever expire?  I purchased some keys during a sale way back and these have never been activated nor touched.  I'd like to help Herby out and give him a key if it's useable.
