If this is not allowed to discuss I am sorry but it is really frustrating to me. I am not advocating or discussing anything illegal in this thread *End Disclaimer* So I bought Aspyr's ET:QW only to be shocked that it requires you to put the DVD in to launch the game (it does not need the DVD, it does this for "anti-piracy" measures, you know the ones that punish those of us who legally buy it and merely create a hurdle for a warez pirate to crack and over come for illegal players). Anyways, the Windows AND Linux versions of this game dont require a disk, so it makes it even more frustrating. I am sick of putting the DVD in and out and putting wear on my drive (its making me not wanna play ET:QW). Does anyone know of a way to bypass this mechanism? I legally purchased the game, and even if a person hadn't they wouldnt be able to play online since it requires a key. Does OS X have a way to make MINI-ISOs like you can in Windows? Does anyone know how? I would prefer to do that over making a full iso copy of the disk and leaving it mounted 24/7 :/ Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!!
