Topic: Can't run some games - how?

Posted by lindsayw on Sep. 29 2004,21:28Hi there,
I have SoftDisk, which works very well for some things, but not fully for others. It works fine for NFS Underground and Rise of Nations, but for Hitman 2, it can load the first part - the screen that autostarts, but will not play the game. For The Sims, I had to set the Emulation to "SafeDisc", but for H2, I have tried ticking SecuROM (The web site says it uses SecuROM protection), but it does not work. It will let me click play, the CD icon comes up for a while, and then it just stops. Nothing more...
Anyone know how to get this to work?

Posted by lindsayw on Oct. 03 2004,23:19Thanks for the reply. I used SoftDisc to make the ISO file. Is it not good enough?
I went to the CloneCD site, and the product has been shut down.

SoftDisc is not designed to backup copy-protected game CDs.
It have moved to < http://www.slysoft.com/en/ > .

Just because it's illegal! Go out to the closer shop and buy that game. Have a good shopping.
