Hi everyone;

First, I just started using Daemon Tools and it seems great -- can't believe I didn't start using it sooner.

I'm a laptop user and a big chess fan; basically, the GUI isn't what is protected, it's the engine. Each engine, when it loads, periodically does a CD check (and each engine has its own CD). I can't stand carrying around the CDs anymore as my collection grows so D-tools seems awesome for the task at hand.

This is probably a stupid question, but I'll ask anyway: is it possible to strip unneeded files (say, large database files) from images to reduce the size?

No, the cd check would fail if image size is reduced. You may have luck searching for some no-cd patches.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I figured as such ... thanks! I'll check out some of the no-cd patches...
