    Help with computer disk

    I was wondering if it's safe to play a computer game such as Unreal Tournament 3 wihout having the disk in the disk drive?

    I know it's possible, because I do it all the time..
    I just load up the game and nothing would be in the disk drive..
    And it plays fine..

    I was just wondering about this..

    Cause if it's safe and not harmful.
    I'll sell my game on ebay

    Thanks in advance

    The only reason a disk is ever used is to verify it is original. It is fine.

    For games that don't have a disk (downloaded, etc) go to www.gamecopyworld.com and download a No-CD fix as a "backup"

    They also have trainers for the games as well as patches

    The sites are perfectly legal, simply because they advertise them as backups.

    There are no games stored on those sites, simply patches for the exe to play them without your CD.

    Remember when you sell the game, you're transferring the license, so make sure to remove/uninstall it from your machine

    which some people claim is illegal.

    i once worked with a quadrapalegic who had some hand/arm control. i helped teach her how to use dragon naturally speaking for general computer use. we also learned to play some games using it. civ 4 worked great with voice software. since she was no mobile, swapping discs didnt work. rather than use an online patch, i contacted the developer, and they sent me a nocd patch, that only worked with 1 cd key. it was great.

    It is not illegal because it is not a game. It is obviously illegal to use them to play pirated games, but the exe's themselves are legal.

    For example, the R4 for the DS is legal, providing you only use it to play homebrew.
