An ad supporter -FREE- game is totally ok by me. A game I paid for, which has ingame advertising is not cool.

Tried Far Cry, can't see any so far, although I think it's region locked. Here in the UK, I don't think anyone got any ingame ads in BF2142 etc.

Does anyone know if this is the 1.4 version or if you have to apply the patches as well?

Apparently the promotion is over and you can't register for a key anymore on UBI.com
you can still download the full game on Gamershell.com but how am I supposed to play it?

According to a post I saw on File Planet, they had too many people trying to register the game from overseas. Supposedly, new keys would be issued once they had a decent way of addressing the requirement for it to only be available in the U.S.

That was the tune for all 4 of the games that they made available.

An odd thing to do! Offer an old game free with ads, then limit the number of downloads by putting a time limit on it... wonder what's going on behind the scenes?
(sorry I missed your post Gixmo, thanks! ":O}
