  1. So i’m still getting the Bad Serial Number
    All i have done so far was download the preinstalled zip
    Extracted it and then went to the “Key” file inside the miscfiles
    It already had the right thing in there but still refused to work, Am i suppose to put the Key file somewhere else or something i’m confused

  2. Serial Number Error
    For those who suffer from this problem, the first thing you should do is go to Operation_Flashpoint_Cold_War_Crisis_Win_Preinstalled_ENGame FilesOperation Flashpointmiscfiles
    Right click and edit the file called “Key”. Place the following:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint]
    “MAIN”=”C:\\Program files\\Codemasters\\Operation Flashpoint”
    It should work without any problem

  3. Wow
    I love this game … Everything about it no bigs when playing on my laptop
    But please I’d there a way to play on mobile phone as my laptop is having issues
