    So I go to load up Far Cry and try some multiplayer. The first server I enter is great, I like the slow paced gameplay etc etc.

    Then I go about my day. Later in the evening I fire up Far Cry multi again. Now I get "cd-key invalid" errors all over the place.

    My copy of Far Cry came from newegg.com with my new chip and mobo. I can only assume that somebody in the newegg warehouse copies these cd keys and distributes them.

    Do I have any options as a genuine Far Cry owner? I have a genuine Far Cry disk, paid for by newegg. I should have a unique cd key. What happens in cases like this? How can I possibly prove to ubisoft or whomever that my key is original or my disk is real? What steps can I take to get this resolved?

    I don't know if this still counts, but is there a proof of purchase on the manual? If they'd believe it :\. I mean, that's what proof of purchase is, proof that you purchased the game so yeah... I guess call their tech support and ask if the proof of purchase means anything, and get a new copy.

    yea, my friend has the same problem with the exact same situation, as in he ordered it from new egg and his mp is kinda screwy, but anyway you probably mean the 1.1 patch for that's the latest one

    Call tech support, they will give you a new key if you tell them your current.
