The Taboo subject

Post by dandog » Sun Jan 06, 2008 5:25 am

I cannot find the thread that was on the brink of the Taboo Subject, "hacker files" (If you know what I mean).

Checked out the forum at SOH, which is a "Who's Who" in model making and the advancement of ALL FS series.. They agree with the positition held by SurClaro.

I "Googled" myself blind trying to find a tie to MicroSoft and the abudantly available hacker software. Guess what, cannot find it!!! I did see an interesting "work-around". At FS Genesis there was a thread where someone used a readily available software known as Alcohol 120% to create an ISO image and mount it on a virtual drive. What is this forums thoughts on this idea? I respect the views of these moderators.

The people who underatand what I am talking about are the ones I am trying to reach.

Here's...

Here's the scoop. If you own a retail set of disks, in other words FS2004 A Century Of Flight, and you image disk 4 to mount in a virtual drive as a means of preserving your physical disk and none of it ever leaves your possesion, you are completely within your rights as the end user. If, however, you distribute that image or seek to otherwise negate the disk 4 security arrangement, you are in violation of the End User License Agreement. That is the straight legal crap on the issue.

My feelings exactly. I hope this clears it up for everybody else as well. [-X. I feel that GS's respose should be a sticky.

You can do this with most games. The advantage is that you dont need to put the CD in to play a game, it never gets scratched, there is no noise, and it is slightly faster.
