Thread: Another way to defeat starforce.

  1. #1

    Default Another way to defeat starforce.

    I posted this way on gamecopyworld too.I will be happy if somebody test it.for me it works perfectly.Here is the method:

    My harddisk is SerialATA so i have only optical drives attached to my IDE controller.So to play starforce protected games i just disable my IDE controller in device manager ( The whole IDE controller not the optical drives ) , mount the image in daemon tools 4 and play.After playing i just enable again the IDE controller and my optical drives appear again.No need to restart.I tested this with Prince of persia T2T and in a few hours i will test it with X3 Reunion also.I will be very happy if somebody with sata harddrive can test this way with other starforce games.This trick works for X3 Reunion also.

    I made a little research and a few experiments for the problem with PC freezing or rebooting during disk verification of starforce.Often this is caused by emulations and virtual device of alcohol 120%.To fix this it is needed first to uncheck all things in Emulation and Extra emulation in File->options menu of alcohol 120% and second disable the alcohol 120% virtual device by setting Number of virtual devices ( File -> options->Virtual device ) to 0.There is no need to uninstall alcohol 120% completely.

    Yes but for versions 3.5 and 3.6 of starforce SFN doesn't work.This method is working for me for the latest starforce.

    I wouldn't be surprised if an update to SF in the very near future won't close the nforce 'loophole.'

    After all, folks in this forum are giving the SF team some vital information in which to develop a stronger SF.

    Just disabled "Standart Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller" in Device Manager. That's it dude! No SFN, no SFCure, nothing.. Best way so far. Thx!
