Blizzard Entertainment released Starcraft and Starcraft: Brood War Patch 1.15.2 which intrigued many players. The new patch allows players to log into battle.net without the Starcraft CD inserted in the CD-ROM drive.
That's real good! Let me go update my copy of the game now!
I wish Blizzard would have removed the CD check sooner. And by sooner, I mean around half a decade ago. Blizzard "muted" my account because I used a no-CD crack. :(
Oh well. Better late than never.
it lets you log into bnet, but can you play games?
You can even play the campaigns. Just make sure to rename the install.exe files from each campaign's CD and paste them in the Starcraft directory.
Correct, I was just playing on Battle.net with no CD on the CD-Drive.
finally, my CD drive's busted so I've been using the no CD crack for the past few years.
Finally.... should've happened a long time ago. At least they did it. Requiring the CD in the drive is probably half of what drives piracy in the first place.
