  1. :confused: Can one of you GURUS help, I wanna know if I can save an entire game to "C"drive and run it from there with no CD?

    This is for games I OWN, between the MRS and kid I can never find anything and thought this would be the ideal way to go.

    Thanks in advance. :grinthumb

    p.s. is there anything worse than going to listen to the Pixies, and someones put Robbie Williams in the drive. I'm gonna have to padlock it!:mad:

    Option 1: you get a "no-CD" crack for the game. It will not ask for the CD, but you may not be able to see cutscenes and such.

    Option 2: you get or make a CD image of the game and use a virtual CD-ROM drive to fool the game.

    Keep in mind that the modern copy protection schemes make both of these tricky.

    Thanks, guys, that VIRTUAL DRIVE sounds interesting.

    I'll give it a go.

    As usual, TECHSPOT came through with the goods.

    You have to make a crappy OS (not by writing it, but making slight modifications to some other crappy OS) and sell it to IBM.

    Ahhhhhhh, call me Bill.

    By the way, I got a "no CD" code from "game burn world" and it works a treat. I opted for the full install when I loaded Simpsons HIT & RUN and I'm terrorizing Springfield. Full music and clips.

    I've invented a new mousetrap/fitness regimen. It consists of a video,some cheese, a pair of cheap running shoes and a hammer.
    I'll get some washed up actress to flog it & let the dough come rolling in. "fight flab with the Mousketeer!

    Is MRS BRADY still alive???
