How many times can one activate the Sam & Max episodes?

posted by Imapus Sylicker on - last edited - Viewed by 263 users

Reason I'm asking this is I have 4 computers - one at home, one at work, and two at my brother's bar - , and would, of course, like to install Sam & Max in each and everyone of them.

I do have the DVD, but like most people, I find that inserting the thing everytime I want to play is quite bothersome, so I'll try to go for the activation whenever possible.

So, how many times can I activate it? Is there a limit?

I did a search for this question, but turned out nothing... dunno if it was asked already.

Cheers!

    Please don't make fun of the above sentence.

    Thank you.

  • You should be able to activate the game on those computers without trouble. I don't know the upper limit for activations before you have to ask us about it, but it's greater than four!

  • I don't know the exact number! If you're really curious, wait for someone smarter than me to swoop into this thread and provide facts, or write to support@telltalegames.com and Emily or someone will help you out! All I know is, you're good for now. :)

  • It's greater than 5, also. :D It's high enough that the average user should never have a problem. (But if you ever did have a problem, you could just ask us to increase your activations again and we'd be more than happy to.)

    EDIT: If you're talking about Season One, make sure to redownload the updated versions we posted a few weeks ago, since the main changes we made were to the activation system. The previous versions were a lot more finicky about being installed multiple times than they are now.

  • Thanks.

    Actually, I haven't had any problems with the games yet - activation or otherwise.

    However, since I had a bit of a free time on me hands, I decided to ask this quite pertinent question before I ran into some trouble.

    Oh, almost forgot - I know this is unrelated, but I figure it wouldn't be worth another thread. In the DVD, the manual is only a two page flyer with what seems to be a cut off text. In other words, it smacks of incomplete. Is it supposed to be this way?

    It was intentional apparently, since Emily once mentioned it as being one of the contrasting features between the DVD and the retail version.

  • Yeah, that was on purpose. For months people had been asking us what Warp Drive does, and we thought it would be funny to leave people hanging again. :D

    it certainly was, so it paid off on your end

    You're evil.
