No-CD

Ok, I'm wondering if there is anyway for me to make my CS exe not need the CD? Cause SoC has that, and I realize it's due to the change in publisher, but it's annoying since i want to play the game every-so-often, and having to go through the hoops to find the CD is just about got me to uninstall the game.
Any ideas? I got a NOCD thing from gamecopyworld, but when I tried playing, the performance issues were absurd, and i think it's cuase of the things I had to replace in the bin folder(luckily I backed it up so now I"m at square one)

SHoC requires the CD to be in the drive too. The only way to bypass it is by bypassing the copy-protection, eg using a cracked .exe, and as far as I know TAGES is pretty hard to bypass properly which is probably why it caused problems.

The only official solution would be to buy the game from a digital download site such as Steam.

Not true about SoC at all, I use it all the time without the CD in

Are you using a no-CD patch for that? The retail version definately uses a disc-check.

Nope, I reinstall it, and use the patch from the site

i've been using the same SOC disc for years now, the one i bought when it first came out. I've installed it countless times on half a dozen different computers and i've never had to play with the disc in the computer.

maybe they added the drm crap to newer SOC discs??

I got my SoC when it first came out.
Does not need to be there to activate.
My CS DVD does however have to be in.

There are working No-CD cracks for CS out there...

I don't think it's within forum rules to direct you to a download for one, however. I don't see a problem with cracking a game you purchased for your own use (honestly my DVD drive spooling all the time just annoys me) but GSC may not see things the same way

The US version doesn't. No such luck for players elsewhere, or for US players of CS.
