I’ve been considering trying to make a DVD-ROM that has 4 things:
Image file of original game CD
cd-rom drive emulator (deamon tools, i doupt one exists that doesnt require to be installed)
The files which are installed into the game directory
A simple script which stores save files to a temporary directory
If it works, I should be able to run the game directly (although more slowly than from HD) fom the dvd drive.
This would be extremely handy for LAN party’s where there are no install permissions on the machines.
Does anyone imagine this would work?
