ok, this will be a very detailed thread, i hope in the course of writing this i'm able to make sence. I purchased bf2 in pcdvd version (wow what a mistake) I own all the battlefield series games and have made succcesfull images with alc120, I usually mount them so i dont scratch my original discs. I have read most of the threads here and i wish to not duplicate old threads. I'm not able to make a succesfull image once mounted on vdrive. I changes the name of vdrive as i read here in so many threads. I dl clone cd and new profiles, all clone cd can see is dvd and does not gime me a option for safedisck, securerom and so on. . . . ok, now, i went to get blindwrite as my last and only other alternative, it made a iso image, but once again it failed to bypass gameprotection. It's safe to say that as long as theres dvd-+ and cd-rs we will never ever be able to make exact clone copies without ignore media or software emulation. I read about mini images, but if play online, and u know EA is going to put a $hitload of patches, how can i edit hex in mini images without screwing up my game once patches and even worst, will punkbuster classify hex editing as a cheat ?
All i want is to be able to play my game without running the original dvd.
Lets defeat this evil that is the game protection industry. reply if u have acurate answers or serious suggestion. BTW makes no sence to buy inadecuate software as alc120/Blindwrite/clonecd if it doesnt make clone copies as they claim to be. :a
