X3 reunion and 'No CD' problems

My Pc deskspace is very cluttered so i use a no cd crack for all my games and then keep my games in a box in the spare room. I tried to use a no cd crack with X3 reunion but it didnt work. I have patched it to version 1.4.0.3 as it was directed in the crack but the crack didnt work. The screen goes black as if the game is about to start but then the it gives me the send error report message and goes back to the desktop. any sugesstions how to do this. I was thinging i could use alchol 120% to create an iso of the disk but then i wouldnt know how to set it so the game starts up from the virtual drive.

Thanks

Talking about Cracks isn’t allowed here.

Sorry i read the rules but saw no mention of them being unallowed.

Discussions about cracks are definitely NOT allowed. From the main forum rules:

We do not allow, nor condone any messages containing:

[ul]
[li]Language that is obscene, vulgar, sexually orientated, hateful, threatening or violate any laws;[/li]> [li]Requesting for or posting of serial numbers, direct links to cracks or any other information that violates copyright laws or any other laws protecting intellectual property;[/li]> [li]Requests for downloads of anything that is not freeware, shareware, trial versions or copyright-free material (hence, no ISOs, Warez or MP3s that are protected by copyright). Any references to such activities will also lead to deletion of the topic;[/li]> [li]Offerings of products (tangible or intangible) and services that you do not have legal disposition over.[/li]
[/ul]However if you mean backing up your original discs to preserve them, then I assume that would be OK and I took your question to mean the latter.

I ment using the game without a disc so i could keep the disks undamaged and just play from the Hard drive.
