Looks like a widely leaked key to me.


You'll need to buy a new copy of the game - however, if you did buy the game and that is your key then I'd suggest you reinstall your system as it's likely you have malicious software installed.


Either that or you did on a previous OS (if reinstalled since key was leaked) or you shared it.


Don't go buying a key from a CDKey site either as these are usually widely distributed.

There is a known bug with RTCW, its been known about for ages.


The Bug:

When installing RTCW for the first time you enter the cd key off your game jewel case when prompted.

So far, so good.

When you patch the game / enable punkbuster, the cd key magically changes to a key that is completely different.

This in turn generates a pbguid of 6068d9f9a4e1adfe304e45b8783be7d5, which shows as having tons of aliases / IP's / and players from all over the world, mostly victims of the same "game bug"


The solution:

Once you have installed / patched the game.

Go to the options menu and check the entered cd key, I guarantee that it reveals a different cd key than the one you entered off your game jewel case.

Simply change the cd key shown, to the correct one, and you should be good to go.

Read Fozzers' post just below my original one (didn't know this was caused by a game bug).


Recommend you don't take a photo of your game key, that's distribution and it will end up in your real key being banned - if a hacker uses it.

You're perfectly right to be honest, it has it's flaws but comparatively it's better than other solutions out there and it's got flexibility.
