Here comes the trouble!

Ok, guys, now I'm getting reaaly angry. A few days ago I re-installed DTM Race Driver 2 just to have a decent run with a decent car (why not to try GTR? Cuz it's Starforce again, no more for me too! ) and today my drive refused to backup the backup of Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone. The curious thing is that I created that back-up after formatting, just about three weeks ago. Then I installed the game without any problem from the same disc.
Another strange fact, alcohol gave me errors in different sectors from one time to another. Don't know why, I start feeling the stink of Starforce: these are the things that typically drive a guy into the crazy-warez-world....
Ok, let's have a "succesfull system install" again: Sometimes I can't really afford the thought that I can't play with masterpieces like Scrapland, Colin 2005 and Street Racing Syndicate (Still Life?) but if this is the price to pay for playing a starforce game, ok then, where is the petition? Where do I have to sign?

@Duke Nukem
Its never a good idea to create a backup from a backup! Always backup from the originals.

@ Grumpy

THX for the advice, man, you're damn right. But it is too late! The holy fire of purification has already burnt away the [email protected]#*in' starforce virus from my pc! And, of course, alcohol went through the "backup of the backup" .
One final consideration: this is not the end of piracy, as someone said, this is really the end of games.

SF has already 64bit support, if u do not know something do not talk on it on public

Well its not strange to me that such thead started here. 95% of visitors cant emulate or crack SF or have serious problems doing that, and often kill your systems after such tryes, and such petition will be some kined... mmm a vent for anger of those who can't...

Yes! many of us want to play SCCT, but not spend money on it. But there is a f*ing starforce prevents us from doing that! And there is no crack yet! (Hey hackers!!! Where r u???) And yu know ppl SCCT is a BIG title and im shure that the best "specialists" working on it. So... no crack - what we have to do? Lets smear SF and get some relax...

I know that SF has problems with compatibility, and many users who legally buy the game want play but cant - but you know where most of such ppl talks? There, and not here. And there is too little SF ralated topics.

go on

(sorry for enlish - not native)

You have my total support here, the one Starforce game I did install (Unwittingly) totally screwed my PC, & I only sorted that one with a format.
You can add X2: The Threat to your list as well. (All versions except US)

Egosoft have got a new patch for download that removes the protection from the game apparently they where asked to remove it by the publishers, so no more starforce for X2 and hopefully none for X3..

I didn’t bookmark "I know I should have done" , but if you just do your own search for "windows xp64 review". I stumbled on it by accident, it's the review of the final version and not the beta, and it was out of all the games they tried 2 wouldn’t load and both had SF.

I will boycot Starforce until one or the other of us is dead.

I threw my Silent Hunter 3 game (my favorite) in the trash. I refuse to pass on malware so I didn't pawn it off on someone else.

I got that p*****d of with this crap that i just emailed star force telling them what i think about it. Message below

I am writing to complain about your so called Starforce V3 protection, it is the biggest pile of B*** S*** to ever be called a copy protection. How can this be classed as a suitable copy protection when all it does is F*** UP your PC. Since installing Starforce V3 games, ive had nothing but system problems. But amazingly they all disapeared after using sfclean. Like many others I certainly wont be buying any products with this bag of s*** on it. Isn't this protection Illegal? as it totally f***s with your system. If your going to make a copy protection at least make it so it works without f***ing up your PC!

Does Anybody think they'll reply :-D

Surely, they'll reply

The "creators" of starforce are not the problem. If a game is protected with starforce, they have already earned their money....no matter if customers buy the game or not.
If sf games remain in the shelves, developers will start thinking about it (okay, in fact they don't, cos they don't give a ****ing **** about customers as long as there are enough idiots buying their crap).

The only chance of stopping starforce, is boycotting it. But this will never happen.....at least not to a degree which would be remarkable....
