Stop, you're both right. It depends on the version you have, the european version has securom and needs to have the disc in, the US version has no securom and does not need the disc in at all.

Well, the reason is the European version came out first, then they discovered before the US release that the version of securom they were using was not compatible with Vista and causes the problem people have with the spinning disk then no launch. So they released the US version without it and failed to offer a fix to the rest of the world.

Basically leaving the Euro community with an open excuse to find creative ways around it no doubt.

I live in England and I have never required the DVD to play on Hyper-Lobby!

Just to make sure, I have a moment ago joined and immediately crashed and left!
