For some years now iÃ¡m making backups of all the games I buy, and for years now i was able to succesfully make a backup of my games. Atleast that was what i wanted to believe
My problem: When ever I make a copy of my game all seems fine. I am able to install with my copied cd/dvd. But when I try to start up the games with my backup CD/dvd it just wont start up. I get the famouse error: “Please insert the correct DVD”. So what i did all these years was replacing the original .exe of my installed games so i did not need my copied cd/dvd anymore to play.
My question: Is it possible to even make a perfect bootable, working copy of a game? A copy of the original cd/dvd with who you can install and actually start up the game with out replacing any original .exe files or what so ever? including no demontools or what so ever. A perfect copy like u buy them strait from the stores.
Can anyone give me an awnser on my question?
Edit: I’v bin wondering about this for some years now and have tried to find a awnser on my question. I am talking for example about C&C Tiberian Sun all the way up to Battlefield 2. My problem is not that i cant bypass the “unable to copy the game” protection, but “unable to start up the game with my copied cd/dvd” protection. I would appreciate if only people react on this topic who actually know the awnser, i have heard to often things like. “I think” or “U could try” etc etc.
Thanks for taking the time for reading my post.
Keep up the good work.
