I recently purchased Silent Hunter III from Ubi-Soft and it’s protected by Star-Force.
Here’s my problem, I can insert the DVD and start the game with the popup Menu no problem.
But if I start it with the Shortcut or exe directly, then the Copy Protection Dialogue get’s to about 40% and locks my system solid. I have to cycle power to get it going again and the fans in my system go mental.
The Mission Editor is not included on the Menu, so I can’t start it?
Am I killing my computer with this stuff?
Here’s my spec’s:
Dell Dimension XPS Gen 2
P4 Northwood 3200 MHz
2 Gig’s PC3200 Dual Channel
Radeon 9800 Pro
Samsung SW252S & SD-616E
Latest drivers for everything
Thanks in advance, I’m really interested in just what this Star-Force product is doing to cause a lockup this hard.
