    Hello,

    I have an original C&C Generals.

    I use to be able to play without the DVD inside in Snow Leopard.

    Is there anyway I can do this on Lion? Such a pain to have to carry around a DVD.

    Thanks!

    Hi M. Malone,

    Yes, there is a way to play Generals on Lion, without having to use a DVD.

    Hope this helped.

    ----------

    Seriously though, try go to gameburnworld.com, and see if you can find a NO-CD patch for it. I'm assuming that Generals would be Cider-wrapped or something (if you're playing it on OS X), so if you go into the 'Show Package Contents', there should hopefully be the original .exe file to locate, and replace accordingly.

    With any luck, that'll be patchable. Out of interest, how did you get it running without the DVD before? Did you apply a crack of any kind, or did it just always 'work without'?

    Thanks,

    But I'm also willing to accept making a DVD Image in order to play without a DVD, I have tried disk utility and that doesn't seems to work.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.
