Fallout 3 - No cd but allow WLFG

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of a way I can play FO3 without the CD.
I know about GCW and GBW but do these "patches" allow me log into windows live for games?

Im getting fed up of going across my room to get the lunchbox.
I bought the damn game, I should be honored by letting me play without cd

I think that patches from sites such as GBW could possibly get you banned if you tried to go online, so I wouldn't do that.

I agree.
I didn't buy Fallout 3 for this reason. I'll pick it up when its a bit older, can be had for $20, and by then there will probably have been an update that allows you to play without the dvd.

Seriously. This is PC not console. Devs need to learn that we expect to be able to play without the disc.

You'd think since they didn't implement any DRM they would have just said "Screw it, they don't really need the CD to be in"

When I'm in that situation, I make an image of the game.

Alcohol 120, and blindwrite do a good job.

I think it's blindwrite anyway...

Use Daemon tools to mount the image then.

You either download it from steam and get a steam version or buy a retail copy and get it as a standalone.
As for Valve games, you buy the retail copy and its still the Steam version without the need for a cd.

Unfortunatly, a download of 6gb or w/e would take forever on my home connection. As for my Uni connection, wouldn't take that long but im not at Uni for much longer

As for alcohol, well that might not work as it uses WLFG and it might ban me
