Hi right now i found box of my original "sins of a solar empire" (2008) dvd, i remembered i loved the game so much but i didnt remember the game so with a bit of wonder if it gonna play in windows 10 i installed it. It installed without a problem and didnt ask for serial or sth like that. Then i started a game still without a problem but fonts were a bit low-res or something like that and reading texts was tiring me unnecessarily, other than that i didnt have any problem. (Well installing from dvd is a bit slower compared to modern online installers) But reading difficulty was annoying so i decided to uninstall the game right away but then rethinked and wondered if there is any patch which might can solve that problem. Found this site and only when it asked i noticed i didnt have any serial number. So i couldnt register it and couldnt download update.
What i have is original dvd-rom , original box (of Aral ithalat Turket who were main distributor of games that days before steam) with still readable original bandrole on it. I can send pictures of everything if necessary. What i dont have and need is serial number (for 2008 version)
Or if i get any steam version instead which i can later buy dlcs for it, i will be more thankfull.
