No its not what you think. I bought quake 4, popped in the disc in, loaded it on my machine and it asked for the cd key. The manual says its on the jewel case and the game says its on either the case or in the manual. For the life of me, I cannot find it. I have a big sticker on the box that begins with thats in the format of AAAA-BBBB-CCCC-DDDD-EEEE but the game refuses to accept anymore characters beyond the DDDD portion. I'm usually obtuse so bear with me but for the life of me, I cannot locate what could be the license key. Is it possible that I got a disc w/o one?
