Just be warned that the full game uses StarForce, so there's a chance that the demo does too (for those who don't like SF)...

Starforce. I think the publisher just lost another potential customer.

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.




- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

If the game is going to use the starforce protection, the demo will have it too and will install starforce. I read in an interview on some site with some representative of starforce and he said that game demos would also install starforce so that the pirates would not be able to use the .exe of the game and modify it to use in the (full) pirated version.

Ahh.. here it is - http://www.firingsquad.com/features/...ew/default.asp

FiringSquad: Why is it necessary to include StarForce on game demos, such as "D-Day"?


Abbie Sommer: For a very simple reason; if a demo goes out with unprotected code, when the time comes for a pirate to try to crack a released game, he or she can refer to that demo to find clues which can be used to crack the game, if the demo .exe closely resembles the final product.

i think people hate starforce because even though it caused no problems for them it caused problems for a small number of people they never met so that must mean everyone is going to have problems and starforce is evil

and armagedon... are you sure you just don't have a bunch of starforce protected games already installed? starforce ALWAYS requires a reboot

Gah, downloaded this demo 2x now and each time file is corrupt. I'll wait till the weekend stampeed is over.

Not like many in here are going bonkers over this demo it seems.

The demo DOES NOT install starforce btw. I'm only a dedicated 'hater' of SF because it sometimes causes explorer not to run and also makes startup take 4 mins before even firefox will run. Without SF I never get any exploerer issues and startup takes 30-60 secs.

Anyway. This game is soo cool. Well, only because it's the most orginal game I've played in ages. And don't go "Original? It's another WWII game!!.." Any money you play a MMORPG and it's not like they're exactly original either.... I like the bullet cam for headshots, For some reason I keep shooting them in the mouth............. my only real thing about the game is the lack of a wind indicator. Also, for some reason you have to run at some obstacles(steps) to get up them.

read my post again, it will just show you if SF is installed (unless they found a way to disguise it even further). I vaguely remember seeing some demos installing SF without rebooting since it give it's installation away but i'm not sure. I think it was Virtual Skipper 4 demo.

And no, i never keep any SF games/demos. I either run the remover or re-ghost my system drive. I just wait for the patch if i'm interested in that game.

Ok...call me a noob. But I have never heard of StarForce and it sounds as if I should stay away from this game. Can someone tell me what it is and what it will do to my system? I have been waiting for this game and would like to install this demo to try it out.

Oh and FileFront has it now to!

To make a long story short, it's a controversial copy protection drivers which are installed silently with some game/demo. It's permanently loaded in memory whatever you play or not the game and cannot be uninstalled easily. It is suspected having nasty effects since it manipulate ide:cdrom interface using high privilege system call beside other unknowed operations which are kept secret and difficult to identify. It is also going after drive emulation software like Alcohol 120 or Daemon tools. The drivers have evolved to be more and more agressive as people found way around it and using their own words; "to keep them compatible with the latest versions of Windows operating systems" ???

Now that's not stopping you from trying the game. The official removal tool is available at this site :
http://www.onlinesecurity-on.com/protect.phtml?c=55

My suggestion, to be safe, just uninstall the protection when you are through playing. It will re-install itself when you play again. That's what the game should have done by itself in the first place. In any case, curiously most of SF protected games have been cracked so if it's a popular title, it's not hard to find a patch which bypass SF.
