Emulator Detected (GH3)

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I went and bought Guitar Hero III before work today at BestBuy and I installed it and it tells me;

"Emulator detected!
Please deactivate virtual drive and emulation software."

I uninstalled daemon tools because it was already disabled and still giving me this warning but still not working. The only other program I have that I think could cause it to think its an emulator is Nero, but I don't have any virtual drives listed in my computer so I don't know what the deal is. I contacted Aspyr before work and still nothing, I am infuriated that I spent $80+ on a game and can't f'n play it.

Any Ideas before I break this guitar in half.

I uninstalled Nero as well and its still flipping saying it... I cleaned my registry and nothing.. WTH.... This is retarded because I'm gonna have to wait on a pirate to crack this game and then probably not be able to play online. Thank you securerom.

Have a look at THIS thread. The problem seems to have something to do with daemon tools. The op has a similar prob but with a different game. Hope it helps!

Also did you uninstall daemon tools completely?? (i.e. remove all registry keys)

It's clear why they do this: tools like daemon tools are used to get around copy protection all the time. Yet another example of how draconian DRM mechanisms can screw over legal customers.

That said, this is a pretty gray area of discussion. This isn't really "copy protection", or at least it doesn't sound like it to me. I honestly don't know the legality of this issue...but because the waters are so murky, be very careful in this thread. If I sense it going over to the dark side, I'll have to yank it.

That's absolute crap if the software on the game is refusing to run because it detects you have daemon tools installed... This should not matter one bit; more accurately, it's probably illegal for them to sell you a game which will not run if you have certain software installed on your computer. I'm positive of that. I would carefully examine the EULA, particularly that of securerom.

I would honestly try any means necessary to get my money back, and not buy from the company again.

Slightly OT: I had the same issue when I bought C&C3.

I will never buy another game from EA.
