Question about the 'Almost Everything Pack'

posted by Georgebuk on - last edited - Viewed by 292 users

Hi, i was just wondering if i can download the games multiple times whenever i want, my reason for this is that i am getting a new PC in the near future and as this is a limited time offer i wanted to purchase now and install later and also install on my current system and play in the mean time.

Also i wanted to know how much shipping the disks to the UK would be?

Thanks

  • Yes, you can download the digital versions as many times as you'd like. The shipping costs are calculated during the checkout process, and would depend on the shipping method chosen.

  • Thanks for the swift reply and for answering all my questions Mike. :)

  • I've got a related question - I hope it's okay to post it in this thread:

    In the FAQ thread I read that you can also activate Telltale's games manually if you don't like the online activation, with codes you can specifically request from Telltale after your purchase.

    Now, if, like in Georgebuk's case, customers need to de-install their games and then re-install and re-activate them, can they do so with the very same codes provided once by Telltale or do they have to ask for new manual activation keys every time the game is re-installed (or installed on a different machine)?

    Or in other words, will I still be dependent of Telltale's support once I get the manual unlock keys or can I be sure that I'll be always able to re-install the game without Telltale's help, even in the (currently unlikely) case that Telltale does no longer support the games for whatever reason?

    Thanks in advance for any help ou can offer!

  • You would need to get a new unlock code if reinstalling or installing on a new system.

    Hm, that's too bad. Sounds like it's quite a hassle compared to DRM-free games and bound to cause problems somewhen in the future. :(

    But I guess one could at least request a manual unlock code and store it for an emergency, and then use the online activation as long as it's working?

    Two things: Once unlocked, it doesn't need to be again on that computer.

    However, every computer gets a new unique code generated by the game. So you can't use an unlock code you got for one computer on another.

    But if you request a manual unlock key and then don't use it, but instead unlock the game online - could you still use the unused manual unlock key the next time you have to install the game on a new computer or not?

    No. Every computer the game installs onto generates a new number that needs to be given to telltale for the key. An unlock code given to you for your desktop won't activate the game on your laptop and vice versa.

    Ok, thanks.
