    Hey, I'm a bit lost. Paid for the download and had the confirmation email linking me to Steam. Problem is I don't have any activation code anywhere on it. Baffled. Help!

    You might have just actually ordered FM11 by your mistake? I'm seeing just one FM11 sale today, so this can be no coincedence. Even for that case, you can get full refund since we have 7 day money back guarantee, and then buy the proper FM version.
    Your comment is ridiculous.

    Absolutely rubbish service, ordered FM12 using the links on this site and actually got FM11 download!!

    Would never use this service again!!

    Thanks for the info stam.
    I'll check my e-mail tomorrow at like 2pm, any questions i'll use that email or post a comment here again ;) .

    It usually takes about an hour to receive your code in the email after successful purchase. There's a manual validation process taking place, meaning the codes are not automatically sent out. The problem with semi-auto delivery of activation codes is that when the distribution guys are not in office, you're left with frustration until they return. So at this late hour, it's a bit unlikely you'll get your order approved tonight.
    Any questions or issues you might be having in regards to your purchase should be directed to our customer service or to this email '[email protected]'.
    Thanks for understanding!

    Both DVD and digital download editions require Steam to activate and play. Once activated you can switch Steam client to offline mode. See this topic: How to set Steam in Offline Mode.

    Hi, first time here!
    I'd like to purchase fm 12, but I want to know if this edition can be played in offline mode (without steam I mean).

    Hi Stam,

    i just send you a PM. i paid from VISA.
    PLease help on this, as i still not received anny code.
  • Stam's avatar
    Send me a PM with the email you've used to make your order.
    If you paid via PayPal, the confirmation email you received should ask you to approve your order by providing some identification. Are you sure this is not the case?
  • iswahyudi's avatar
    Hi Stam,

    its 48 hours but i still not yet receive my code. i checked my spam folder and emailed to costumer service but still no response. Please help on this.

    If anyone is in doubt about this offer I can tell you that don't worry, it is a great offer and you get your key. I know because I used the offer. Fantastic game, the best since 00/01 and 95/96.
  • heitmann's avatar
    Ok. I ordered it anyhow, and i got my code 2 minutes after ordering. Amazing work i must say!
  • berkinmarangoz's avatar
    Stam, Thank you so much for your support and assistance, Happy weekends
  • Stam's avatar
    Good to know. Like I said, I don't appreciate that this service is semi-auto and there's delay because orders have to be approved by humans first (which means office hours). Anyway, have fun playing FM12! And apologies for the delay, even though it's not my fault :)
  • berkinmarangoz's avatar
    I got my code in 10 mins after providing my passport copy, right now downloading, i never felt doubtful about them but just 12h was too much to wait, Thanks
  • Stam's avatar
    If you have been asked to provide identification, you're not going to receive any activation code until you do this part. This happens when you pay via PayPal I believe and I know it's a really annoying policy that Nexway have. If you don't do that within 5 days, your order will be cancelled and your money refunded.

    We had a lot of happy buyers who received their codes fast, but we also had others complaining for a delay. People who bought it from the digital shop of SI/SEGA are actually having more trouble than we do with code delivery. Anyway, the problem with semi-auto delivery of activation codes is that when the distribution guys are sleeping, you're left with frustration until they are in their office.

    Have you received an email asking you to provide identification too? Be sure to check your Spam folder too. Whatever issues you guys are having with your purchase should be directed to customer service or this email '[email protected]'. FM Scout is not involved in the distribution process at all, so please direct your comments to the proper place.

    I know, but all I can do from my end if to mention it on the product page now. This semi-auto process gets to my nerves as well, since it's supposed to be a no-waiting service by Nexway. I'm disappointed because it makes FM Scout look bad when we're clearly not involved in the distribution process at all, we've just partnered with Nexway to sell the game.

    12 hours and no code, and i have been asked to send them my passport copy or id card or driving license, Thanks to FMScout/ Nexway, still waiting my code, the illegal guys start to play it before me, Really Thanks !!! :D :))
  • heitmann's avatar
    I was considering using this great offer, but then I saw some comments where a couple of guys were complaining on the fact, that they are yet to recieve the activation key after 5 and 24 hrs. That gives me some doubts. Is this a one time only thing? Or have more people experienced this? I would like to here positives too, if you for example recieved the key one hour after ordering.
  • iswahyudi's avatar
    i purchased FM 2012 more than 24 hours ago but still not received code on my email. Please anyone can help on this?
  • berkinmarangoz's avatar
    5 hours ago i completed the payment, still waiting for the code :-X
  • dftho1's avatar
    Just saw this, was beginning to think there was a problem with mine too! It might be helpful to mention this somewhere during the order process perhaps? :)
  • Stam's avatar
    It usually takes about an hour to receive your code in the email after successful purchase. The process involves real humans though, meaning the codes are not automatically sent out; there's a manual validation process taking place before that. I'm not personally involved in the distribution process and whatever issues you might be having in regards to your purchase should actually be directed to our customer service.
    Thanks for understanding!
