    Hey Guys...

    A couple of interesting Universal binary games have caught my interest in the last week or two: Warcraft III and Close Combat First to Fight.

    My problem is that with my MacBook Pro, I use my games all the time on the road. It should come as no surprise then that nearly all of my games are either patched to avoid having to carry CD's everywhere, or I use disk images to fool them.

    I guess I should indicate that this isn't a warez post, I believe it is a genuine issue for portable users.

    To cut to the chase, I haven't been able to find any way to avoid carrying CD's around for either Warcraft III or Close Combat. This is likely because they are somewhat older titles that arn't being closely watched, so nobody has released no cd patches for them that work with the UB versions.

    Can anyone relate to this issue, and-or help me out with this?

    Thanks in advance,

    I've had warcraft 3 frozen throne running off a disk image before. It was a couple years ago when i still played that game but it is definately do-able.
