    In what way does BioShock not work?
    What error do you get?
    If running from an image how did you create it?

    Isn't Bioshock going to both be distributed via steam and registrable via steam meaning it won't require the disc to play the game once installed and fully updated?

    As far as I heard You can register and buy Bioshock Via Steam, and usually Games using steam don't require the CD to play.

    I know this from buying and playing Half-Life 2 and Lost Planet: Extreme Condition via Steam.

    BioShock is available 3 ways.
    Steam
    Direct2Drive
    Retail Box

    The retail box uses SecuROM online activation on install and standard disc SecuROM.

    bioshock gives me this message when i try and launch it.

    "Please insert the original disc instead of a backup (1000).

    Please have a look at http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=copy&c=1000 for further, more detailed information."

    anyone know a way around this so i dont have to insert my disc everytime?

    Thank you for explaining that you're clearly unable to read.
    Please show me where I stated that any versions didn't use online activation.
    I merely stated that there were 3 different versions (true) and that the retail box uses securom for online activation and for a disc check (also true).

    so... will there be an activation crack or a fix for yasu?

    there will be as usual an update for YASU. Additional it should
    also work via vIDE-drive from DAEMON Tools Pro Advanced
    version, which is released already.

    Work is also already finished. Nevertheless, new version only
    supports DAEMON Tools/DAEMON Tools Pro and not anymore
    foreign virtual-drive solutions. Additional, we offer new YASU
    first to our customers - it is unclear when we will release it
    to open public.

    What concerns the activation-crack: This is not our business
    and according to current laws, you are not allowed to bypass
    this activation-check (in germany: as long as publisher offer
    such service, after support is down you are allowed to bypass
    it ("Bestimmungsgemäßer Gebrauch der Sache").

    Nevertheless, it is up to you if you buy such game or not. In
    this particular case users reported they exaggerated "a bit" with

    - Securom Protection
    - Online-Activation
    - Number of Installations is counted (up to 5 installations are
    "allowed")

    At least this is what different users wrote to me - it is not
    personal experience, as I did not bought the game yet, but
    according to many reports, it seems it have the by far most
    annoying protection ever made for a game (if reports are true).

    As I have not bought it yet, I can not comment if this is
    true or not, but my opinion is that I accept such restrictions
    only for applications but not games. Certain applications are
    anyway "bound" due to their "nature" to such rules, e.g.
    Antivirus-systems or even DAEMON Tools Pro (which is
    frequently updated and need therefore inet-connection
    anyway. Nevertheless, on the other hand, every publisher has
    the right to do whatever they want as long as it is legal -
    but if this is also wise is something different)..
