Thread: Prince of Persia Two Thrones working without unpluging optical devices

  1. #1

    Default Prince of Persia Two Thrones working without unpluging optical devices

    I don't know why, but i have a normal PC, i mean:

    intel motherboard (elitegroup)
    ata hdd
    dvd reader
    cd recorder

    doing tests i have found out that POPTT works with
    daemon 4.x and this configuration:

    IDE0 - DVD reader (SLAVE MODE middle of IDE wire ) + HDD (MASTER MODE )

    IDE1 - CD recorder (SLAVE MODE middle of IDE wire)

    and that's all, maybe the key is slave mode in the middle of the IDE wires, and don't know how CD Recorder works in slave mode being alone in the IDE1 !?


    any ideas why this configuration works ?

    there are 3 options for the jumper config.

    Cable Select
    Master
    Slave

    In cable select the device will be automatically configurated depending of where is connected.
    Middle-> Slave
    End-Master

    Then your cd recorder is slave, cause their jumper is in slave or cable select(connected in the middle=slave).

    Thanks arisma for your explanation about IDE jumpers,

    but anybody can test in his system something like my configuration, i have to tell that we installed game before doing changes in the master-slave devices.

    and i have to add, we test this solution we read in a forum:

    StarForce Bypass Method without Unplugging
    Method found by Cedric128Fr (translated from French here ):

    1. If you have DAEMON Tools installed on your PC, uninstall it.
    2. Shutdown your PC and unplug all CD/DVD drives.
    3. Boot the PC in safe mode , and uninstall every CD/DVD drivers.
    4. Reboot in normal mode, always without CD/DVD plugged, and install DAEMON Tools 4.x.
    Your virtual drive need to have the letter next to the one of your HDD. (necessary !!)
    5. Shutdown the PC again and plug the CD/DVD Drive.
    6. Boot the PC and let Windows install the CD/DVD Drive.
    7. Mount a sf iso with DAEMON Tools, install and play


    but the game (POPTT) didn't work. And when the game worked with our solution, we changed daemon letter of our
    virtual device, and the game ran without problems.


    sorry my english,

    That could be the trick because I don't have a problem playing POPTT either (no cracks or anything, just daemon tools 4.0.3)

    My drives:

    C:\ HDD1 partition 1
    D:\ HDD1 partition 2
    E:\ DVD writer
    F:\ CDROM
    G:\ HDD2 partition 1
    H:\ HDD2 partition 2
    I:\ Daemon tools drive 1
    J:\ Daemon tools drive 2
