Hi all,
just a small question which i hope can be solved easily  ::)

1) I have lost my ss08 licence key!  :-[ I have seen Wout post on this subject but i cant access the links as i havn't registered my key! ( I lost the box for my game when moving house after loading on to my computer first!)

2) The second question is that (just today) i try to load up the game, after the vstep loading screen, it then goes blank and nothing happens!   I am running the game as a window on my desk top rather then full screen.    SS06 still runs ok though....

Hopefully someone can give me a pointer in the right direction....

A pointer.... Look MUCH harder for the box and instructions?

Have a look in the FAQ section there is a tool you can download which will search your hard drive for the licence key. It works too.

I'm glad to know Marmite has more uses than just as a food!

Yes, best bet is to enter your Q on the tech support forum and 'you know who' will undoubtedly know what to do.

Like the banter but don't see any explanation to cure the blank screen problem. :(

If it is a licence key fault how can one re-enter it when the system locks up at the blank screen point, the only way to get out is to reset the computer.

Hi Alan.

You need to register your profile on this forum before we can give you any technical support. When you've done that, just start a new thread there and I'll run through it with you.

See you soon!
