    Evening all


    So after my enforced hiatus, I decided to re-install (Yay) but cannot find my discs anwhere (boo). Any ideas? All I could find, buried under some really old dusty photos were my manuals - the ones with the code thingys. Well gutted.

    Greetings stranger has a nice ring to it about now.

    Any ideas?

    I believe if you create a battle.net account, you can enter your cd key and download 1.12. However you won't be able to time travel back from this.

    You can download previous incarnations if you want to downgrade - there's a link in the Stickies. No clue how to make it work with 1.13 but the version switchers or clever people here, should be able to help. :)

    But yes, CD key gives you the ability to download the most recent stuff from Blizzard.

    ISO is an image of the disk. Use to use it prior to 1.12. I'm trying to remember the name of the program which allowed you to mount the ISO as a disk but the braincell is on strike.

    I'll edit it in when I remember. Something-Lite IIRC.

    I used to use Alcohol 120% until they started making you pay for it.

    Start the download and while it's going read every entry in the mat/pat/guardian thread. Then you'll truly be ready when you can get the game running. Yes, I know I'm a genius.

    I once tried a software called Magic Disc or Magic ISO and it was the worst. Not only it didn't work but also wouldn't uninstall. I had to go into safe mode and manually remove it.

    This thread reminds me that I only gave Blizzard $20 for thousands of hours of entertainment. That's a cheap hobby right there.

    Enter the 16 char key in the blizzard site (will register your game there), it will convert it to a 26 char one.

    If you already registered the game, you just need to go get the 26 char key.
