HA. Called some friends and I found someone I know who lives 15 minsutes away that's gonna let me borrow his game to install it. Then I'll make my own backup or get a no CD patch.

No CD patches are also illegal.

As a friendly reminder, discussion of stealing copyrighted material (i.e., piracy) is against the Overclock.Net terms of service. What constitutes "piracy" may not be clear to everyone; but from this site's perspective, the line is very clear: anything that is a violation of the law, whether you believe that the law if just, fair, or whatever, is a violation of the ToS.

There was a thread in the Windows forum a few months ago that gave some specific examples of what is considered piracy. I encourage everyone to read that thread. For convenience's sake, I have also lifted and slightly modified BFRD's examples from that post, putting a slight gaming-specific perspective where appropriate.

A non-exhaustive list of things that should not be discussed:
  • Any software that disables copy protection and/or disc encryption. This includes any sort of no-cd or other crack program for games and DVD copying software. The Digital Millenium Copyright Act of 2001 explicitly outlaws these types of programs.
  • Any discussion of software that invalidates Shareware/Trialware restrictions.
  • Offering to PM a member a serial number or crack, or asking for same.
  • Any unauthorized use of corporate software.
  • Using BitTorrent or other P2P networks to optain copyrighted software, music, movies, etc.
  • Downloading any copyrighted media (games, music, movies, whatever) without the artist's permission.
Two gaming specific notes about that last bullet:
  • It includes game ROMs used by emulators, downloading ROMs over the internet is illegal. Note however that the emulators themselves are perfectly legal, since they are independently developed software. So you can talk about emulators, just don't talk about acquiring ROMs.
  • It also includes old games. There is no legal concept of "abandonware" despite what you may have seen on web sites devoted to the subject. Unless the original copyright holder explicitly permits redistribution of the old software as "freeware" or, less likely, public domain software, then it remains subject to copyright law.
By making sure we keep the site free of potentially illegal discussion, we can ensure that Overclock.Net is here for us to enjoy for a long time to come. Thanks everyone.

Take it back, its not going to cost the store anything.

I did this when I bought the alien vs predater series a long time ago. Took it home and in the process of opening it cracked one of the cd's. Took it back and before I could even explain the guy gave me a new one and said have a nice day.

When your friend is old enough you should make them reimburse you for the disk.

Guys, the toothpaste/disk fixers will not fix his disk.

Quote:
I just bought COD4 at the store and a freak accident as I was opening the package caused it to get a small scratch on the matte side. My computer is not reading the disc, what should I do?
That would be the label side meaning he scratched off the label/mirror backing on the label which enables the disk to be read.

You could try fixing the mirrored finish on the label end of things but your best bet would be to get a disk either from a friend to install and see if your disk atleast can read the securom files or torrent the installer, use your own CD key, and patch the EXE.

The latter is illegal so i recommend the former.

Good luck
