Sorry to post a new thread, but there wasn't already one, and the EA website/forum refuses to load.

I have just bought a new copy of the game, and have my online pass. Yet when I enter it when the game asks, it says it's not valid. Despite entering it exactly as shown. I've tried all uppercase, all lowercase, with spaces and without spaces, with and without dashes - nothing works!

As I say, it's a brand new copy of the game, the seal was still on it. But I've no idea what I'm doing wrong! If anyone can help me, I'd appreciate it.

P.S. My game also didn't come with a game manual, is that right? Seems odd to me.

If it says it's not valid then you are entering it wrong otherwise it would tell you that the code has already been redeemed.

Tiger 12 is one of the first EA games to come without a paper copy of the manual - it's on the disc.

As I mentioned in my original post I am entering it correctly. In any shape or form the code is not working! I appreciate the help, but please read what I've written first otherwise we might not get anywhere! lol

the online passes are region locked so if you import a cheap region free NTCS/J and your in PAL it won't

Cheers guys. I'm gonna try to ring them and see what happens lol.

EDIT: After experiencing the worst hotline I've ever encountered, I was eventually given a new code which worked fine. But it took about half an hour of farting around to get there, the guy on the phone was a complete tool!
