My question is this.

Do i need to register the free digital download version? or... is it automatically registered to me by virtue of having downloaded and installed it through Origin? Or.. is the game old enough that it no longer requires registration? Just wanted to make sure i'm dotting my i's and crossing the t's.


I think it's option 2, since the game was released before Origin.

 

You can still give it a try, if you can't register it, then you're set. Standard smile

I made the mistake of deleting a region and I want to reset the game and can not because of this cloud thing. I have installed and reinstalled and the region is still gone. Is there a way you at Origin can reset the game on my account?

[SimCity 4] Redeem Serial Code for hardcopy SimCity 4- Deluxe Edition to Origin

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Hello,

 

I got a hardcopy of SimCity 4- Deluxe Edition with serial code behind the game manual and would like to import it into Origin and download a digital version of it.

 

I have tried using the options 'redeem product code' from the Origin menu at the upper right hand corner of the Origin client, it says invalid code.

 

Then I read the articles 'Redeem Your Serial Code in Origin' from 'help.ea.com' and proceed with the link 'https://activate.ea.com/activategame.do'.

 

I input the e-mail address and password for the origin account I want the game import into, the system recognize the serial code and ask me to create a new persona. I created one and then the system said the product is successfully activated.

 

When I log back in to Origin, I can't find SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition on the game list. I tried reloading the games, log off and in for a few times, and even wait for a day, the game still haven't appeared.

 

I would like some help on this issue.

 

Thank you very much!

SimCity 4 is not in the cloud, SimCity 2013 is in the cloud.

 

If you're speaking about SimCity 2013, then your region is lost if you abandoned it.

 

If you erase a region in SimCity 4, it is also gone, you'll only get the basic regions back upon reinstallation. Provided you also removed the Documents/SimCity 4 folder.

I'm not suprised that you aren't getting help from the so called fourm. I still haven't gotten any help too. I guess with the new release of Sim City they don't want to give owners of the older versions any help.

BTW, I have posted an 2nd private message to "eaursula" asking for more help, I do not think anyone will help with issue.

Several years ago I bought SimCity 4 Deluxe edition in a store, in the past year or so, I have lost my disks but I still have my product key and I would like to install it using origin seeing how it is still available on origin. When I click the redeem product code and put my cd key in, it says its an invalid code. I click the FAQ link in the error and it directs me to this page which has SimCity 4 Deluxe listed but I cannot redeem. I'm not going to buy a game again I already have and paid full price for so I would like a solution to this, thank you.

Do you have the game registered on your Origin account? If so, you can download it again from the 'My Games' tab there.

Cant Add Simcity 4 Deluxe Edition To Origin

★★★★ Newbie

 I tried to add Simcity 4 to Origin but it didnt work. Here are the steps I followed: At the top of the origin app, there was a tab called "Origin". I clicked on that to tried to add it to my games library. I then clicked on Add Game... and clicked on redeem product code. I then typed in the product code that came on the back of the game manual. I clicked next but then it said "The product code entered is not valid. Please confirm that the code has been entered correctly." Can somebody please tell me why this is happening and also what I have to do to get it to work?
