Tip & How-To about EA - Electronic Arts Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08

Want to play your expensive PC game without damaging it ?

By far the best software to use is Slysoft's Game Jackal it allows you to save profiles of the discs not images so that when the shortcut to play is clicked it will know you have the disc that you installed the game with.



If works for about 90% of all games it's at v4.0.2.3 as of March 2010 you will have to pay but it's well worth it to prevent damage to your original disc.!!! Buy now this easter for a massive 25% off the lifetime license use the code FAIRUSE

Simply the best Free application that is guaranteed to find just what you are looking for is PROTECTION iD by CDKiller and TippeX it will scan the executable file after the Game has been installed and identify the protection and the version that has been used.

Most PC games require the installed EXE file to search for the original game disc in the DVD or CD drive to allow the game to run if you use Alcohol52% Free Edtion data-type function you can create a disc image on your hard drive. This will allow you to fool the computer into thinking that the image has the correct protection that the game wants to find in order to run. Clever eh!!!

This has been tested on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 which has SecuROM v7.33.0014 protection which Game Jackal can't handle at the moment...

SECUROM ERROR CODES
------------------------------
(1000) - Insert original instead of backup
(4001) - Please insert original disc instead of backup
(4003) - Take the disc out when it is trying to be accessed
(5024) - Required Security Module can't be activated ( only when you are using sysinternals process explorer check out this link showing SecuROM on the game Spore when using Process Explorer !!!

http://www.thearchitect.co.uk/weblog/archives/2008/09/spore_arrives_drm_copyprotection_is_a_bug_not_a_feature.html

If you try to run the program with either a copied disc or without a disc inserted you will get the disc not inserted error this which is the whole point of using SecuROM to protect Gamer Pirates but we are only interested in backing up our expensive single copy of the game.

SOLUTION - rip an image of the disc or a back-up with Alcohol52% FE using the secuROM datatype, place the image files TW08.MDS and TW08.MDF in this new folder you need to create it !!!

THEN - Mount the image using Daemon Tools Lite

*(Note: you can't use the DaemonTools SecuROM emulator one your virtual drive this only works with Alcohol52% datatype SecuROM rips.!!!

**(Double Note: Remember to take out your backup of the disc before you try this OK !!!!)

I loaned out my copy of NFS:MW and it got trashed. I bought a new copy and it won't let me load my saved games. I checked and both discs are same version. I also checked the memory card, which has saves form other games which work fine, and thought I can see my saves it won't let me access/load them. Any suggestions?


I owned that game a few years back, so much fun.
I had a similar problem. I had to get a new copy of it because I lost my old one. Well when I put it in it wouldn't let me load my old profile, so I took out the memory card, took out the game disc, turned off the PS2. Turned the PS2 back on and let it sit without anything in it for a little while, then I put the memory card back in a different slot, checked to see that my saved games from NFS:MW were still there, and then I put the disc in and it loaded my profile.
This worked for me, but it may be that the serial brands on the two discs are different. Since the release of the PS3, PS2 discs have been made with a back tracking element to allow it to be played on all sony systems in the future. So it may be that your old disc was pre-backtracking and your new disc or post-backtracking. If that is the case, i'd say go to your nearest gaming shop and let them come up with a solution. It's better to get hands on help with stuff like that.

i purchased chessmaster 10th edition and installed to computer when i hit the play button for startup it asks to insert disc 1 i would like to know why this is required when the program is installed can the program be started without having to insert a disc ????


i am sorry to give u bad news, game CM is game that need disc to run the game because a lot of stuff that still need to run the program left behind in the disc. it was factory setting.

But u can use alternative way by make the disc to image then run it with daemon tool.
first u need program that can make image file like .iso, .nrg, etc. ( i use nero)
make an image file from CD 1 and CD 2 and save it in computer.
second install program that can make image drive to run image disc (i use daemon tool).
make one image drive then mount the image disc to the drive.
now u can play without real disc. (after finished play the game unmount the image disc)

hope this helpful
