Well, some games do require it, others do not (Savage for example). Or get patches that remove it latter. (UT2004 for example)

Since I swap between a fair number of games, and I have a tray-cd/dvd/rw-rom, its a huge annoyance factor to have to switch cd's.. especially when I have the full game installed on my computer.

Why do you play 'a fair number of games' at the same time, then?

Regarding unlicensed distribution/gaming (a.k.a piracy): Most games that are available as 'warez' did require the cd-in-the-drive, but that did'nt stop anyone.

Most games that are available as warez do not require the cd-in-the-drive because 'most games that are available as warez' are warez, hence they are cracked. Most of the time this it's a NoCD crack.

I've just checked and found several.

Non-working ones.

Hmm... but how do you know? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
Also, what else could've you said? If you said "they all work" it would've meant every lurker arround those parts would've run a search on Google to find those "working versions". Just wondering <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" />
I'd go check but I already gave my word I won't download Larian's.

Believe me i go to a infotmatic school. I would know if theire was an ISO of it.

I have my sources. I know they work because I have a proof. I won't cite my sources for obvious reasons.
It's not an ISO but bin/cue files.
