Hello,

I'm new in online games and I need help concerning COD4. Could anyone explain how will i join multiplayer game through the various servers that appear? Most of them are sending a message that my code is in use. Is this my only problem? Other servers count to 11 and afterwards say that it's impossible to get connected. Thanks!

Well, if you have a legal copy of the game I do not see why your code would be in use, unless it's the doing of some dastardly pirate sailing the seas of...well...piracy on the internet. I suggest you contact customer support and tell them you bought a copy of their game, and somehow your code is already in use.

one of my friends gave it to me so there was no reason for me to buy a legal one. if I have to buy the original one in order to play online multiplayer i will do so. But do you think that it's necessary or there is another way? Does it really worth to try online game on COD4?

You need an education, bud. There's plenty good reason to buy the games you like playing. If you don't want to pay or don't have a job, get the free trial and ask your parents to buy it for you. Yeesh, kids these days...

Jeez, calm down. If one of his friends gave it to him I see nothing wrong with that..

Make sure he uninstalled the game from his computer if your both trying to play at the same time it wont work.

Right-o! Nothing wrong with discussing piracy on a gaming forum...

getsakos, get COD3 and play the multiplayer on that instead. The game will be cheaper and the multiplayer is more fun.

Yep. That's you're problem right there. The code is in use because your friend already used it.

I'm not certain, but if he uninstalls it from his computer, you might be able to install it on yours. If not, you have to buy a new copy with a new code.

I don't agree with your statement. I purchased COD4 several months ago and I have never loan my game out to anyone. Just the other day I was unable to log on the server because it gave me an error message saing my Key Code was in use, try and connect later. Some is hacking for COD codes online. However, they captured mine and locked me out of the game for several hours. I would love to stop this from happening to me, but I know I would have to buy a new game. Allot of sence that make because they would just capture it again. Have a great day.
