Don't download any pirated softwares and games on the net. It's full of viruses/spywares and what not.

What a bunch of up tight anole gits you lot are… Cracks are not illegal, they merely let you play the games you own with out having to find the damn disk. A god send when you have as many games as I do!

www.megagames.com

They will have all you need, a 100% legal web site with a database of more than 4GBs worth of cracks.

Yeah, but how do you know he just didn't go and bought the games? :wink:

Some people has a lot of games (a lot of $$ spent there too) and it becomes kinda tedious searching for the disc for this game, other disc for another game, etc etc. And, it helps to keep those discs intact for some more time. 8)

I just have a CD rack next to my computer. I've never lost a disc in my life, nor have any of them ever got damaged.

Good for you. :!:
One of my friends has a lot of games. We're talking about almost a hundred, and, many, many of those, are useless by now.
Ok ok, he's not the most careful person when it comes to those discs, but it's such a shame to see games like Black & White, C&C Red Alert (and some others) so scratched... and useless.
I'm not implying that this is everyone's case, but it happens.

I'm the complete opposite. My copy of FIFA 98 RTWC is still intact! :D

on another note fluff and everyone else is right shouldnt discuss copyright stuff on here. but if you must kno and are doing it legally then megagames has my vote.

crack? mmmmm....the smel of smoking crack.... what was teh question agian :wink: lol

btw to the guy that "explained" what cracks are , get urselfe a dictionary or something(no offence), if anything u were talking about no-cd exe's/no-cd "cracks", not cracks in general :wink:
if anything cracks are not only for replacing the original .exe's files

and to be honest to those that complain about having so many games and being to LAZY to put that cd in the drive....com on that excuse is just plain pathetic(no offence, but thats what i think about it)
and to theose that have an excuse, that they have to many cd's and that using those cd's will "damage" the cd's.....if u can aford so many games, whats the big deal with just giong to the store and geting just the game agin if the original cd got destroyed?...im shoor that i sound here like an ahole by saying all this but come on if u throw ur cd's or do not know how to handle them at all, why do u even bother using the pc?

Im sory but just had to release some steam there, yesterday i went to one of the ebgame stores and there was a guy(more like a kid :wink: ) that broth in an xbox(im not shoor...some console) and wanted a replacement(i gues he had a waranty on it), he said that it fell down the stairs and it didnt work, after he got a new console he said that he's glad that he got it replaced, he was woried that the waranty didnt cover him, because he "threw that xbox at his frinds head, after he lost a game, and it bounced of and fell down the stairs"(the console :wink: )...... to be honest if i were the manager of the store and heard that i wouldnt give him the replacement.... what kind of moron throws things, i mean come on, when i heard that i just felt pity for those who have to live neer kid.

More like what kind of person throws it at someone’s head and tells the shop that he is expecting an RMA from exactly what he did.

You would be surprised though, how easy discs break. All it takes is a hairline fracture in the inner ring of the disc and they either explode in the drive or the ‘crack’ gets so big that it makes the disk unusable.

I have had 4 games go like that:

Homeworld Cataclysm
Battle Field 1942
Alice
Command & Conquer Generals

I have also had 2 games for the 360 that I have had to take back to get cleaned because they have got scratched in the drive. When calling Microsoft they told me pretty much to sod off, which I was not happy with, might have better luck at the shop I got it from if it does it to another game. Scratches are not too bad as I have a place near to me with a disc cleaning unit but it costs £2 a shot.

This is why I use ‘no-cd cracks’ if you want to be anole about it. I have had too many games go on me and cannot afford to replace them when they do break. Just because I have loads of games does not mean I am loaded. It is because a big chunk of what I have goes on them.

Oh and you can get broken discs replaced by the publisher but in the case of EA they charge you £20 & P&P at your cost... If you cant see that is blatantly outrageous, you should not make that much profit for a replacement service that is used more times than not for faulty discs.

i know about ea's disc replacement policy, yet another example how they try to rip us (customers) off, i think its poropostrous to charge that 20 or so for a cd that broke, althou there might be cases in which the users are at fault, btw there was an article somewhere i think in th about the cases that ea ofers(the dvd like cases), basicaly theyr made in a way in which one gets a cracked cd/broken, just by taking the cd/dvd's out of the case, the inner "holding button" is the cause of it, i think its because one needs to aply too much presure to release the cd from the case, and in doing so the disc bends causing microfractures which over time, and repetitive usage damages the disc.

in regards to other "brekage" i honestly have to say that i bought a cd scrach removing "thing" (whatever its called) that u insert a cd to fix the scraches about 3 years ago, and i never used it even once, i just never got any cd/dvd scrached (not mantioning broken) so to be honest im astounded how people "break" the cd's, so i gues it all depends on the people that use them. :wink:

Cracks I think are a useful tool to ease the inconveniency, and we all have stories to tell why we need our paid software crack, But whether we like it or not it’s still illegal.

Unfortunately many users neglect to read the “Software License Agreement” while installing our software’s.

Example:
ADOBE
Software License Agreement

NOTICE TO USER: PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. BY COPYING, INSTALLING OR USING ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE SOFTWARE YOU ACCEPT ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, IN PARTICULAR THE LIMITATIONS ON: USE CONTAINED IN SECTION…

This is taken from paragraph 19.
4.2 No Modifications. Except as permitted in Section 14, you may not modify, adapt or translate the Software. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Software except to the extent you may be expressly permitted under applicable law to decompile only in order to achieve interoperability with the Software.

Like this guys said, this is not a place for that posting. And it’s so frustrating when someone come and asks for help that involve all of us into illegal action. Also we can not assume that the person has pirated copy.

I just hope those Lawyers can find a way to decrease the restriction on our purchased software. But I don’t think it is going to happen and instead it might get worsen.

I hope I didn’t offend anyone.

Do you believe everything you read on Forums? I very much doubt that that guy is an expert in intellectual property law.

For one thing, he equates a No-CD crack to making a back-up disc. This is erroneous, as they are VERY different things, and I'll explain why;

When you purchase software, you are not purchasing the disc, but a license to use the software. The disc is merely the medium by which the licensed product is distributed. In fact, if you read some license agreements, you will see that the CD itself remains the property of the publisher. Yes, that's right - they can demand their CD back.

Making back-up CDs is a grey area - although most license agreements forbid copying of the software, if it's for personal use and you don't distribute it, they'll turn a blind eye. However, most publishers refrain from publically admitting this exception as they don't want to set a precedent. It's a lot easier to ban all copying than try to come up with a water-tight definition of personal use.

A no-CD crack is a different kettle of fish (a bizarre English expression) altogether. A no-CD crack involves altering the software itself. This is expressly forbidden in the license agreement, and they are entitled to do so as it's their intellectual property. Remember - you are buying a license to USE the product, NOT the rights to the software itself to allow you to modify it.

This might all seem Draconian, but that's the way it is. If you don't like it, buy open-source software instead. Or, use cracks - but realise that what you're doing is violating the license agreement.


One final point - the term "illegal" seems to be used a lot in places where it's not always appropriate. In most cases "illegal" refers to a criminal act. Piracy (copying CDs and distributing them) is a criminal act, but I'm pretty certain that modifying software without permission isn't. It would be a civil offence - meaning that you could be sued, but not imprisoned. a pedantic point, but an important one.

Actually mate, seeing as I live in the UK I find mate acceptable. Everyone says it :) 

Saying "friend" on the other hand just makes you sound condescending but stupidly so. There are better ways to be condescending.

I've gotten cracks that contain viruses and lots of other crap. I prefer to use blindwrite to make an image and then use daemon tools to mount it and run it that way. If you have the harddrive space for it I would recommend that. Technically I would consider that making a backup copy of the disc and it doesn't circumvent the software that you install quite like a crack does so I guess its legal.

The reason they turn a "blind eye", is that with CDs, you are legaly allowed to make one backup copy of the media (you are Not permitted to distribute the back-up, nor keep the back-up if you give/sell the original.)

This is turning ugly in the DVD movie world. The above law gives you permission to make one back-up copy of the media - The new DRM laws make it a crime to bypass the DRM copy protection in order to make a copy. :?
July 28, 2006 8:42:01 AM

What program do you use to make a copy because most programs do not make an exact copy including the errors that are used to confirm a real cd is in the drive.
August 1, 2006 9:42:03 PM

for my personal use, for my own movies and software. i use alcohol 120%, it makes precice 1 for 1 duplicates w/ bad sector emulation. which is important to as have to leave home often and head out to primitive places, and ill not want to take my good disks, or disk 1 of my games with me. i am not given that much luggage space. so i keep everything in a purly digital format.

am i breaking the law? probably. but i cant very well take a big nasty cd wallet with me all over the planet. its easyer to pack an external w/my stuff on it.

I Agree with the Gray Area statements. As per some EULA's, it simply says you are not allowed to decompile or alter their software. It does not say that you cannot use 3rd party files WITH their software. (ie the NO-CD patch) And, as YOU did not make the file or alter the company's file in any way, then YOU have done no wrong. You are simply not usuing the supplied .EXE, mearly a 3rd Party .EXE.

See, Gray Areas are fun!

August 6, 2006 7:25:01 PM

i agree, i generally get no cd patches (dunno wether that qualafies as a real crack :? ) for my games as: firstly, i am lazy and cant be arsed to change disks. Secondly, most of my games get scratched up even when i try take good care of them (might be my drive :(  ). But people who just go out and download a game without owning the game, that pisses me off, i mean all there gonna do is make games worse as developers will have less money to spend.
