hello dear Total war players.
Where could I change my cd-key in my Medieval 2 totalwar game ?
not in game settings, video and anywhere in the menu ?
thank you for reading !
I had the same problem, watch relly good the letters in the cd key are all massed up and not clear i mean in the game box, reinstall and with Capitals letters. in my event i put an 8 insted of a B so take a good look before entering any letter or a nubmer.

hey if this happens to anyone simply do what TOTALWAR told us...
You're getting the error message:
"Login failed - invalid CD-key"
Right this is how to resolve (with thanks to various posters)
You cannot change the cd-key ingame anymore (most likely for the protection against illegal games), so you have to do other things.
Now go to this: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/SEGA/Medieval II Total War"
Now you'll see a value representing the CD-key. Change it to what it should be. You could have done the following wrong:
-Don't type spaces
-Do type the "-"s
-Don't use "o"s use "0"s
-Type everything (except for the numbers obviously) in capital letters
Now it should work, if it doesn't let us now ... preferably in the MP part
Please give me reputation points thank you
I have checked the registry as well. It doesn't work fo rme and I knew where the cd-key was as well. Ironically it worked before the patch. NOw it doesn't because I don't have to use a fixed-exe just to play the game (the patch fixed that, but has now broken multiplayer AFAIK)
This will sound extremely pedantic, but are you 100% sure that the CD-KEY is entered correctly in the registery (common mistakes include Os for 0s, Ls for Is etc)

ok so i just bought this game a few days ago it was the gold edition, so it came with the expansion pack. When i went on to multiplayer, it said "failed to login-invalid cd key". So i found this forum and i did the regedit, to type in the key again with no "-" and all uppercase letters. it still didnt work. I havent downloaded any patches for it either. I will see if i can figure it out. If you have any advice please email me at [email protected]
