im not sure but theres obviously a problem otherwise jowood wouldnt have released the patches and as i stated earlier not even the originals will install or run without the patches on both my liteon reader and writer drives?
Strange indeed, if you want a quick compare I have Alcohol 220.127.116.118 installed with one permanent virtual drive set as drive V: (I just find it easier V: --> Virtual) and Blindwrite 18.104.22.168 (though I updated yesterday to the newer version) I dont currently have CCD installed.
I agree there has to have been a problem or Jowood wouldnt have released a patch, especially such an urgent patch, as the patch was out 2 days before the game from what I remember.
It is indeed bizarre!
