I've never done this before, is it easy

Yep! Click the link, enter your details, download the game and activate on your choice of 2 machines. Should your machine break or you get a new one contact Boonty support who can free one up for you.

Are there manuals?

I've got a problem

Depending on the nature depends who can help you best. If you have a problem downloading the file or activating then you should contact Boonty support. If you have a problem with the game or a feature in the game please post on these forums. If all else fails, email me marc_duffy (at) sigames.com

urrgh, Egg chasing..try this

You've got to hold and give

But do it at the right time

You can be slow or fast

But you must get to the line

They'll always hit you and hurt you

Defend and attack

Theres only one way to beat them

Get round the back

Catch me if you can

Cos' I'm the England man

And what you're looking at

Is the master plan

We ain't no hooligans

This ain't a football song

Three lions on my chest

I know we can't go wrong

We're playing for England {In-ger-land}

We're playing the song

One question for you, Marc. I've downloaded the game, and it puts it in a 'Boonty' folder, along with an ini file. I don't want to install it right now, as i am at work. Can I take this folder home, and install it there, or will I have to download it again?

Thank you Marc, besides yesterday's hiccup, once again you have done your company proud.

One question: does this have more than one license attached (as in, putting the game on my laptop & desktop)? Thanks again.

You should be ok to take home and play.

Me too. I am assuming this is just an early hiccup and will smooth out soon?

Hi, thanks for the links, could it be possible to have the size and checksum of those files ?

It's because I've downloaded a 5,584,104 bytes exe file and it doesn't seem right.

When do you get this error, at the point you are entering your serial code to activate?

Do you have a firewall or anything?

Hey Marc,

Thanks for the update.

Quick question: Am I able to install/play the game with multiple users on the same machine? Or does a single user = a single license?

Cheers,

It is after clicking on "Buy It Now." It stalls on the first step and then times out and says to make sure firewall is not interfering (and mine is definitely off so that is not the problem)

That is just the install program. I assume once it is working you download the game within that.

If you are all on the same machine it's fine.

Still not working here. Maybe the server is overloaded for now? No big deal. Will try again later.

Oh, I see. I thought you could buy it after the big download.

I wouldn't want to pay, then given a link for download only to discover that the download speed is terrible (common in this part of the world) and be stuck with it.
