[The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth 2] lost key

To whom it may concern 

 

A few years back I purchased the Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2 game and really enjoyed it . However, I recently accidently threw away the booklet with the installation key on it and last year I uninstalled the game, but now I want to play it again. If I send a photo of the CD or something can I get the key back? 

 

Kindest regards 

 

Wayne

[The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth 2] Disc 1 Help

First off  this isn't a question directly reguarding Origin but  Battle for middle earth II was not an available option.

I bought the game in disc form, as well as the expansion the Rise of the Witch King, also in disc form.

 I lost disc 1 of the regular game, but this was not a problem as I could play the game using the disc from the expasion pack. How ever recently My Hard drive crashed an I lost all of the files, but in order to reload the game I need disc 1. A friend of mine said it may be possible to download the client version of the disc instead. I do have Product codes for both Games.

 

LotR: Battle for Middle Earth II (edit: code removed for security reasons)

LotR: Battle for Middle Earth II, Rise of the Witch King (edit: code removed for security reasons)

 

Also I'm running windows XP, which I know sometime is helpful infomation.

Thank you

Hey there, you can contact a game advisor in any case; however, it is possible that he will not be able to help you. Electronic Arts has unfortunately lost the license to produce and sell games based on the Lord of the Rings a few years back, when our previously held license expired and transferred to Warner Brothers Interactive.

Hi Silentklo,

 

If you have an older game title that was released before 2008, you may need to redeem the code through this website to add it to Origin: https://activate.ea.com/activategame.do

 

  1. Login with your EA account
  2. Enter the code in the box above.
  3. Click Sign In to redeem the code.
  • It may ask you to link or create a new persona. If the code is still coming up invalid, please email, chat, or call in to support and we can assist you further.


Note: You may need to go back to options and click on "Refresh My Games" before the game will show up in Origin. If this does not make the game show in your "My Games" section, please log out and log back in to Origin.

 

After that you should be able to download the game from Origin.

 

Hope that helps!

Ursula

BFME2 Rise of the Witch King.

★★★★ Novice

I bought BFME2 Rise of the Witch King online from EA.  Recently I had to re-install BFME2 to a new hardrive.  I moved the expansion pack over as well, but now when I try to use it it says:

 

***FATAL*** String manager failed to initialize properly.

 

I seem to be no longer able to d/l the expansion from EA since they have gone to "Origin"  Any suggestions?

 

p.s. I love not being able to play games I own.

I have two problems. One is that the game itself won't run, and the other is that when I tried to create an EA account, it said that my cd key has already been used or invalid. I know this is my cd key, it's on the back of the booklet. I tried reinstalling the game and it still won't run. It just gets stuck after I press play. Also they didn't have Lord of the Ring in the product so sorry if that's misleading.


One possibility is that he is using a 0 instead of an O or vice versa... or misreading another character in the sequence. Another possibility is that he has purchased a used copy of the game with an already registered key.

 

 

But generally, no... the point of using a knowledge base is to tap the available knowledge of other players who are familiar with the game that you have questions about. I don't have any familiarity with the game in question, nor have I visited its usual forums or locations where its players might discuss common problems... so I don't know if the CD key issue is a common one or unique to this player. To take advantage of that info, you really need to post your questions in the right section so people with the proper background might be able to help you.

 

Alternately, you could try speaking to an EA support agent, which may be necessary for an issue like this anyway... as only customer support has the ability to look at accounts and tell whether a key has been properly registered or is flawed in some way. You can do this by going to: https://help.ea.com/contact-us and filling in: Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2  and then choosing Account/Registration ... that should get you access to an agent with the right access/info.
