Unlicensing Your Game

Unlicensing Your Game

If you want to remove OOTP from one of your computers, you should unlicense it first or else you'll tie up one of your activations on a computer that's not even being used to play the game. Here's how to unlicense:


OOTP 11-15 (PC/Mac, Linux):

  1. Open up the game and on the very first screen that comes up, click on the preferences button.
  2. Next, click on the license tab.
  3. Finally, click "release license / unlicense game"

OOTP 10 and earlier (on a PC), do the following:

  1. Right-click the game icon and choose "properties" at the bottom.
  2. In the "target" box, add a blank space and then "-unlicense" without the quotes to the end. For example, if it says "G:\OOTP X\ootp10.exe", then change that to "G:\OOTP X\ootp10.exe" -unlicense.

If the game is not installed for you to unlicense it or if the above doesn't help, open up a support ticket.
