Total support from me, too!
I use a Notebook with a Teac DL DVD Burner - NO CHANCE to run Cossacks II or the 1.4 Version of Silent Hunter 3.
I will NEVER waste my money for a StarForce Game!

Greetings, Sascha

Lightbulb Starforce ****ers should be slaughtered like pigs....

I have been waiting for years and much patience for the release of silent hunter 3, and finally I purchased it....
But i didn't know what Starforce is...
I found it out, when I entered this site to find more downloads mods e.t.c.
I have to confess that I play this game, so I am risking breaking my computer down... But this game is like drugs.... Once you've played, you want more and more... .
But I really want to get rid of Starforce...
I won't ever buy any other game with Starforce, but this I thin was the game of the century...
By the way, in my country (GREECE), illegal copies can not only be downloaded, but also bought from local shops!!!!
So if those Richasses wanna stop piracy, why didn't they take care of this ****????
But if piracy stops, protections are useless, so protection creators don't wanna really eliminate this problem...

What I wanna finally say is:
Can't we complain or even go the PUBLISHER TO THE COURTS????
I think it's not allowed distributing a virus-bug with a software, is it???
I would love to see Ubisoft bitches paying a fortune because of having Starforce in Silent hunter 3.
Probably there is sth we can do, except for boycotting, right????

I never will buy or play a further StarForce-Game. Installing DRIVERS for a COPY-PROTECTION?? Not with me. I've got better things to do than waiting some hours for starting a game.

Of course I won't stop buying StarForce games. There are very few things I just plain don't understand when it comes to making No-CD's for my games. StarForce is one of them. I barely understand it as it is, and if I stop buying the products attached to it, I'll never figure out what makes it tick.

Starforce is a program used to intimidate the general public to the software companies way of thinking, if no one can use a Nocd crack then there must be no piracy, as we all know this doesn't work.

It crashes your PC causing bad feeling and hardware issues, all the software companies are doing is alienating themselves further from the public, and therefore the public will push back financially.

I for one will not be buying Starforce protected games anymore, and I encourage others to make up there own minds, but be prepared for people to say TOLD YA SO!!

Have you considered that it does bad things, if you try to circumvent it, i.e. try to fool it or work around it?

All games should state on the packaging what protection they use, then the end user knows what they are getting. There is no good reason not to inform us what protection is used after all!

I bloody hope so Grumps. This is a good example of my earlier posts. I stated i will not ever buy a SF protected game. I am looking so forward to FEAR (after the demo and mag reviews) but i can honestly say if its SF protected it wont be installed on my PC. (i cant imagine many other people taking the same stance though expecialy when its a game the person is realy looking forward to. Shame realy as this is the way to get the attention of the people who's attention we want/need to attract. ús speak a louder and a more direct language than us the lowley customer).

@Coffin Filler,
Well lets all pray it is not SF as then I too will be missing out on a top game as I also wont be installing it!
It really does make it hard to pre order games now as I dont want to take the chance that when I do recieve it will be protected with SF!
