Hey everyone,

I just purchased a used F4AF box for MAC.

I actually also bought an external DVD drive too for this biggrin

When trying to run F4AF I need an activation key. According to the dialog box the key should be "either inside the box cover, on the front of the product manual or in your confirmation e-mail after your online purchase".

Neither is true.

Anybody has an idea how to get an activation key?

In my PC version, I can't see a key anywhere.

This may not be the answer you want but GoG (Good old Games) have the 'Falcon Collection' which includes F4 and of course it's all DRM free. Priced at £7.69.

*EDIT* Just noticed you said F4 AF,that isn't part of it,sorry.Reading comprehension fail on my part.

I debated a flat earther once. He got so mad he stormed off saying he would walk to the edge of the earth and prove me wrong. He'll come around eventually.

Hey guys, thanks for the answers.

The PC version indeed runs without problems (and without key).

I actually own 2 F4AF copies for PC too and no key to be seen anywhere there either...

Only the MAC version needs the key - and yes Chucky I thought about that too but F4AF indeed seems nowhere to be buyable anymore except old boxed versions. Otherwise I would be happy to buy a "new" biggrin version online...

Any ideas appreciated...

The only other thing I can think of is a no-cd crack if such a thing is available for the Mac version. You already own the software so it wouldn't be so bad if you have a conscience about using such things.

Yes - I was actually looking for something like this but no luck. Like you said - it's crazy hard to find anything for F4AF for the MAC. My guess is that a total of 10 copies for F4AF were sold worldwide biggrin frown

If anything like this exists - would you know where to look?

I used to use a certain web-site years and years ago and I just remembered the name and it's still going although it only has F4 stuff and then PC only.

Do you (or anybody for that matter) know if (and where) there is a crack for this? What is that site you are talking about. I would not expect it having a crack for the Mac version but still worth trying...

I only ask because even after I got a new registration key from Application Systems Heidelberg (amazing) I couldn’t activate since the registration server is down (was provided by a company called Virtual Programming). VP say the game is dead. What a lie!!! ... well to me it is not :S - don’t knowing I should laugh or cry..
