nfs shift 2 unleashed activation key number

★★★ Newbie

I recently installed a SSD and kept my older HDD as a secondary drive. I created a shortcut to Shift 2 onto my SSD desktop to play Shift 2 but it says I need to activate. I enter the serial number that appears on my HDD where the game is installed but it says the number is invalid/ not correct. It is the right number. How do I resolve this. All my other games work fine with shortcuts from the HDD to my new SSD desktop except Shift 2.

I cannot race online with a friend. I forgot I had a long lost Origin account. Thus, I created a new account. I downloaded the game and logged in with the new account. However, Autolog says I am online but I cannot race online. Additionally, neither account has the game on it. I purchased and used this game on Steam. What may I do to play online?

It says that I have already used my CD, but I have never played online. It says the key has already been used from my old account.

NSF Shift 2 language not as advertised on Origin

★★★★ Novice

yep wrong location but shift 2 wasn´t in the menu


since the live chat has a waiting time of 70 mins I´ll just ask here

I just bought Shift 2 on Origin with a german account, it said that the supported languages were english, french and I think spanish

but ingame the menus are in german and there is only music no voice over sound (yes I have all sound settings set to max, and if the installer had asked me to install in english I would have) all my other games I have on origin run in english and I have origin set to english too

also for some reason eventhough I have the graphics maxed out the game looks like s**t compared to the screenshots on steam aliasing all over the place please let me know if there is a way to fix this

I would like to think that there is a way to fix these issues, because otherwhise I was lied to on origin and I would rather try to get a refund and buy the game on steam when it´s on sale
