    I bought Just Cause 2 when I was in Poland on holiday and now I get a message saying "This game can't be registered in your region." when I try to install it in UK. I've changed my System Locale to 'Poland' but the problem is still there. I gave my JC2 Key and my Steam Account information to my cousin (who lives in Poland) to register it but I still get that error. Is there anyway of getting past the region lock because I don't want £20+ to go down the drain. It said that it should say on the packaging that it is region locked but I can't find anything, it even says that it comes with an English version so I think that it should work but it doesn't. Any help will be appreciated.

    I think a proxy server that is located in Poland might do him more good. I could be wrong though... But you will need to spoof your IP to make Steam think you're in Poland.
