Locomotion - How to Install

Archived from groups: alt.games.microprose.transport-tyc (More info?)

Just got a copy of Locomotion today. Started to install it and was
asked for a CD key. The only apparent key was a 6 x 4 character key
on a label stuck inside the CD case - nothing on the CD itself, and
nothing anywhere in the manual that I can see.

The installation program appeared to be looking for a 5 x 4 character
code. Nothing in the manual or installation notes about a CD key. I
have tried various permutations of the code on the sticker in the CD
case, but always get an invalid key response. Any suggestions.

Not impressed :-)

    I can't remember my install, haven't even played it much but ... it's the
    'code' on the sticker which should be stuck on the case 'under' the CD ...
    type it exactly 'as is' .. ie. CAPITAL LETTERS numbers & 'hyphens' (and
    mind you don't mistake a Zero for an letter 'Oh') unless you don't need the
    hyphens ... 6x4/5x4 :-? hmmmm, oki, just try typing and letting 'it' move
    you to the next 'block' (don't 'TAB' or click your pointer over) and see
    what you can get away with.

    Sometimes supplied codes actually wont work and if this is the case, you'll
    need to e-mail (possibly this addy) uk.helpline@atari.com (from Locomotion
    back of user manual) requesting either help or a new code :-/ Happened to
    me with a bought from Amazon ~ Battlefield - Road To Rome disc :[

    HTH & GL!
    All the best

    I suspect that was my problem. I tend to type in keys with no
    specific case set unless I'm told that it is case sensitive. I
    eventually re-tried the full six by four character key in upper case
    and it worked.

    Thanks for your response.
