Thread: Guide to using extra programs/addons/tools/registry hacks with the latest games

    Any ideas why Ramdrive is not working?I have a CD version of the game Rise and Fall CaW and tried a new way to play from image.Installed Ramdisk software and it made 900MB harddrive in my memory , i placed the image in this ramdrive , mounted and tried to play but again no luck.The disc can't be identified or something like this.HDD blocking shouldn't be a problem because everything is in the memory.

    Data read windows drivers. When run from mini-image, data not read. Its GENEREATED without any calls to windows drivers.

    Run from usb with RPMS dont work. From v. 3.7.13.0. DT hide usb devices from starforce. But now, starforce see them all.
    I repeate: mini-image only for the games, that dont have "ISO protect". ISO protect - check for full image. Starforce check all disk by sectors, that read random. Order and CRC of sectors read from last 5 sectors in the end of the disk. This sectors created by Starforce. Also starforce basic run perfect from full image.

    For this method you actually need 2 pcs, one who has the image mounted and shares the virtual drive in the network and another which has access to this drive. The 2nd pc is the play pc.
    You can use virtual machine (like VMware Workststion 5) instead remote network PC (with Alcohol120%).

    I tested this modified method with FlatOut2 (DVD, Buka) today. All working fine !

    * Setup VMware (phisical HDD/ HOST Only network connection)
    * Install WinXP on VM.
    * Install Alcohol120% on VM.
    * Share virtual drive in Alcohol120%.
    * Setup network connection between VMware & main OS.
    * Start Initiator (MS or StarPort).
    * Mount & Load MDS/MDF-image in Alcohol120%.
    * Run game in main OS.

    PS: Details in russian. Sorry for my English.

    Maybe a better option is to use Microsoft Virtual PC which is free of charge. One can download it here.

    I don't believe that will work as I'm fairly certain you cannot access the drives from a VirtualPC instance (guest) from your primary Windows install (host).

    I think it will work because it's not folder or drive sharing- it is shared via network access as a function of Alcohol 120 %'s iSCSI feature and not some Microsoft Virtual PC feature.

    for me the iSCSI method only works, if i burn the image on a dvd with special mediacode, and mount the actual dvd on the other PC. with DT it does not work this way (at least with .b6t image).
