Hi everyone, was wondering how to deal with this beast Starforce.
I am used to trying to make backups of games I own that have Securom or Safedisc…however, Starforce proves to be a different case, because this is the first Starforce game I am trying to run from a Image file.
I have used the latest version of Alcohol 120 percent (184.108.40.20629) and made a image of the original disk, with DPM measurement on High and Speed set to Maximum, and it lets me install the game, but then it said I have to reboot for Starforce to be installed.
So I Reboot and try to run the game and it says “please insert the original cd/dvd”.
I have tried YASU 1.3 and also I have tried using StarF*ck but it doesn’t work for me.
Also I have tried a few registry edits but they didnt work either.
I do not want info on how to burn it to a disk or how to unplug my IDE drives, I just want info on how to run the image without having to do anything like that, if possible.
P.s.- I found that via Device Manager, if I disabled my IDE controllers, I could run the image as if it were the disk in the drive…however, I was wondering if theres a better solution…cause that might cause problems for some people if they have IDE graphics cards or even older IDE hard drives or whatever…I tried it on a friends computer and it kind of messed his up…because of his onboard IDE ATI card…I guess.
So is there any safe way to get a disk image to run with Starforce?
