Hi my bioshock disc is scratched and it wont complete installing. I have an ISO image and try to install it through there but it says something about securom and uninstalls everything.

I don't want to spend another 80 - 100 bucks for it and just want it installed on my pc. plz help me out

...and this is why we hate silly copy protection on Games... :groan:

Did you try daemon tools to mount the ISO, and use the securom option?

I think so, been ages since I've needed to use it.

Just checked, right click on the Daemon Tools icon in the system tray, emulation, SecuRom.

You could try a *cough* no cd *cough* patch *cough* seeing as you've bought the game, but am I right in saying you haven't got the game installed at all now?

Got a cold Watterus?
I always use noCDs, who wants to be swapping disks all the time.

:p

I to too, TBH. So much easier. There's nothing wring with it, you payed for the game. Just wasn't sure how the mods would feel about it.

OK so i did it and it didn't work. I put a no cd patch into the game folders during install and still asked for securom. I ended the task in task manager. It works now but i have a new problem. It freezes whenever i pick up dollar bills?
