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:

COD2:
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

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Activision\Call of Duty 2 ( when you dont have the FOlder call of duty 2 , make one !
then add a value string ! "codkey" and paste a cdkey in it

make a desktop icon and then click on it !!! sometimes "server is busy " click again and again

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.
