It's Amazon download manager, not EA - and it looks like you need to have an American address to download the games - it asked me to input an address as I put in a new credit card and there was no option for anything other than a US one so I "created" a state and ZIP by googling for one

hi

sorry for the noob question but will this work for people in the uk?

thanks

serial key would still have to activated via EADM anyway, its there form of DRM.

Bought BC2 on retail and steam, both only require the CD key in game when you make/log in to your EA account. EADM isn't installed at all.

(Unless Amazon just give you a link to EADM for the download. Assuming if this is the case, you can uninstall EADM once you have saved the installer to your pc/discs)



EADM doesn't even need to be running (or installed as Glix said) to play the game once you've logged in once and entered your key, it must save a file that the game checks at startup.

You can download your games forever with EADM now, just like Steam.

So how exactly do we get around the 'Sorry this is for US customers only' from amazon?

input an address with an american state and zip code - there is nothing to deliver physically so just make one up

great price! heat

Can anyone confirm if this works please. I am definitely getting this then!

It does works but you need to make sure your credit card billing address is US. The check works fine but donno what will happen when they actually take money or will this alert my credit card company. Anyway, it is downloading now with Amazon client and got the activation key.

Best game I've ever played...great price!

What took you all so long to get involved? This game spanks every other fps! But people shouldn't try to sell it by lumping it together with Bad Company 1, that one had more wrong with it than right. This ones in a league of its own.

Yes, you just run it as if you had installed from a DVD

OK so I finally cracked and decided to get it. Downloading the game right now at 1mbps8)

So I've finished downloading the game and I've already ran into into a problem. When I try to install the game it starts installing directx 9 (I've got DX11) and it just stays like that...

I've waited 30 minutes and the progress bar didn't move an inch! Anyone else encountered this problem??

Ok so I've solved that...now after all the installation just when I'm about to play the game it says "Please put in your BFBC2 DVD"
