    It work's for all games which asks for this. At the moment I have only heard of one, but other should be the same:

    Use regedit and go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Activision\Call of Duty 2 and add a string value to it entitled codkey. Now edit it by inserting a key from a keygen, or something (without the dashes).

    Registry additions for various games (look in their instscript.vdf to find out where they go):

    Call of Duty -> codkey

    Call of Duty: United Offensive -> key

    Call of Duty 2 -> codkey

    Hello drsealion!

    Unfortunately, I never got Painkiller working in Steam. I had no idea where the key entry went.

    I just played with a cracked EXE.
