    Post Game Installation question

    I have a game that requires that the CD be in the CD-rom before playing. My question is, can you copy everything from the CD then play the game from the HD??? I had one game that was played so much that the CD got scratch badly and would not play anymore. Until I get a CD burner, will moving the files alow me to play w/o the CD? What do I have to change to point to the HD vs. the CD?

    Thanks

    The easiest way to make a game play from the HD and not the disk is to get a Crack (which tells the computer not to look for the cd). You can find them at this website by doing a search by game title! http://www.gamecopyworld.com/
    or here http://astalavista2.box.sk/

    well, i dont know if this is more trouble than its worth, but if you have partition magic, you can set another partition (say.... 800 or 900 megs?), set up a logical drive, and direct copy the game into that partition.

    may take a little messing around with to get it to work right, but i have seen other people who have done it.

    you can also look for a nocd patch. i have one for halflife (even though i bought the game.... the cd is just a little off balance, and rattles in the drive when it spins up sometimes).

    Hi tr87526 - While you ae looking for the BEST solution you can proably do what you suggest but be sure preserve the file names. Once the game has been copied, reinstall from the folder the game has been copied to into the folder that you first installed the game into.
