    "Starforce Admin are up to their usual antics yet again. We are not even 2 weeks down from when they posted warez links to Stardocks Galactic Civilizations II.

    Now they have resorted to, posting libelous comments claiming my research into partitioned primary SATA/SCSI drives and how Starforce spreads accross all partitions as well as any networks drive with read/write capability."

    I dont mind protection systems if they dont interfere with the OS and your hardware. starforce could actually be classed as a virus IMO.

    That is a perfect example of a game I would love to buy- but GTL will never see my HD because of SF. I have learned my lesson over the years, installing SF is a shortcut to a format if you want things to work properly. That has been my experience anyway.

    I'm under the impression it is written by a group of Russian hackers. Good luck enforcing any laws if that is true.

    Well that sucks, but if that is true, it lets me know what kind of scum we are all dealing with. They are probably a bunch of low-down criminals.

    Well you could, but it might just trash your Windows installation and PC stability.

    I have never had a problem, with SF until now....hidden devices in device manager I could deal with, as it worked fine and never hurt anything for me....




    ...this is ridiculous though

    Hmmm, after looking around to see if a demo has SF (still don't know- it is that evolution GT demo).. I came across this site:

    Boycott Starforce game list..
    http://www.glop.org/starforce/list.php

    And a lawyer gathering info for a class action lawsuit.
    http://www.glop.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=291

    http://eplaw.us/starforce.html
    http://eplaw.us/terms.html


    So maybe there is hope. What really pisses me off is that now even a lot of demo's and free games install that garbage on your PC.. so now you need to check every single demo or game you install.

    I was thinking the same thing, how rediculous.

    Good thing is, with all this bad press, and for the first time, people are actually refusing to buy games with Starforce , I think the companies time is limited. Game companies are seeing starforce as more of a liability than an advantage.
