suprising enough it seems that dvd's dont have all that protection that most cd based games do , i use alchohol or clone cd usually for cd based games ,
with far cry all you have to do is copy the files from the disc to your hdd and then simply burn them with nero on data mode , i did it and it works fine "
Ok, so its a simple drag and drop to HDD and then burn? Im not sure if it works because i havent got the game, could anyone try this method and see if it works? [/B]
this will never work.
these games need Digital Signicture Autherization when trying to run them if no signicture is found it will simply do nothing
or keep trying then die out back to desktop............
DVD BURNERS do not have RAW DAO burning Instructions
so they cant do anything that requires RAW DAO and most CDRW burners that burn good 1/1 backups of sicuromnew or safedisk v3 need RAW burning to be in with any chance of the backup working.
with DVDRW burners this simply is not the case.
and if the above method works i will eat my hat lol
