View Full Version : It's too bad

That Silent Hunter 3 uses starforce.
What could have been a great game has been rendered useless. The game will run only once then it has to be removed and reinstalled to play it again otherwise the protection system won't recognise the dvd.
I tried everything including the 1.4b patch and looking in the forums but a lot of people are having the same problem and Ubisoft is not very helpful.
I already paid for this game, I'm not going to pay more or go to extraorinary lengths just to get this game to work.
It's going back to where I bought it.
and I'll remember the name Ubisoft.

But there is a way to remove Starforce .. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

A lot of people had trouble with Starforce. No need to give up the game.

Perhaps I should consider myself lucky as far as all the apparent problems a lot of people are having with Starforce.
I've been playing SHIII for close to a year now...have only installed it once...and even though I play it literally every night...I have never had ANY problems with CD Key, crashes, freezes, or anything else.
Besides SHIII, I've installed 1.4 patch, new smoke, periscope/uzo improvement, torpedo skin, terrain improvement, and custom skins for the VIIC and IXC. Plus, I'm using Commander 2.4.
The game loads properly without ANY hitches whether I load from the CD or via the Commander option.

I don't have any problems either, I have reinstalled only once with no problems....reformatted...Dunno what the problem is with starforce....would have known it was there if not for this forum.

SH3 runs flawless on my system. Never had problems with Starforce or instability issues regard the game itself...

Favouritism...I demand a re-count! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

And reimbursement for the costs associated with Starforce. Dammed piece of ****. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

If I'm banned, so be it. I'll PM the 2 x wrecked DVD drives to the Mods/Devs personally. I did send one to UBI and it got returned, so I sent it on to Fair Trading. (Govt Dept)

I used to render home videos to DVDs. Not anymore. I gave up.

Not another UBI title or Starforce product in this house...ever!
