Is it safe for me to install using them instead of using the preload option?

I have the Professional Edition pre-ordered on my steam account (JuuMAN52)...

I'd just prefer not to use the bandwidth...

If I am not mistaken he got it from a private torrent site. It is just the discs to install, instructions say install and wait for release.

So anyone know if this is safe?

Absolutely safe, no issue, just like when you would install from a normal CD

I appreciate the replies so far, hoping a mod will fill me in better. Looking at the torrent, it is the official back up of the DVD's...

Now whether or not it is the regular or professional edition is what gets me.

He got it from a private torrent site? It's a torrent. It's an illegal copy...

I don't think coming to the official website and asking for a mod to give you the okay to play an illegal copy of the game is a very good idea... Did I mention it's illegal?

Guys, you're not understanding what he's saying. The game requires a CD key to activate, and he has that key. But he just wants to install the game, then add the CD key instead of having to download the game through steam.

It's not illegal if he had purchased the game.

@Jewsepher I am doing the same thing, I can't spend bandwith on 20th so I am downloading the game now from torrents and will use these files, I purchased the Professional edition.

You want advice from a mod? Try to find a torrent for a brain.

Goodbye.

That was a bit harsh... He asked a question...

You know, I've been following this forum for a good while. And all I have to say, he had a legitimate question.

If he already has a CD Key and wishes to go ahead and install from a copy of the CD how is that illegal?

And banning him for a simple question?
He posted no links nor claimed to have torrented it himself.

Pretty dickish of you mod.

...and he admitted having pirated H:A. We have a zero tolerance policy on piracy. End of.
