Star-force protection problem. (Gadget & the gadgetinis for pc)

I have got the original game, but the protection requires drivers not compatible with windows vista/7/8/10. The only solution is a crack for get over the protection. On the Internet i haven't found nothing.

Sorry for double posting, I've made the thread in the wrong section and I wasn't able to delete the first one. About that fix, it doesn't work because the game's exe reads the file "protect.dll" that requires some drivers that needs to verify if the CD is inserted. The problem is that it cannot be verified it because I cannot install the driver due to compatibility reasons, and these drivers are so old that are not compatible with Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10, so the exe doesn't even try to verify it if the CD is inserted, hence the mini backup is to no use. Also, this mini backup can't even be mounted by any program because there's only one .mds file inside the rar (the .mdf file is missing). I've tried with Alchool120 and Daemon Tools but nothing seems to work.

Some cracks for starforce used to help to run the game protected without that horrible and useless driver that dont even work on Windows 7..If that didnt work I feel sorry for you..Maybe try run the crack on compatibilty mode but even that sure would fail

This is not a crack, this is a CD image. (And only half of that, the part that is difficult to reproduce.)

I don't think there is or ever will be a proper crack for this game. (Pac-Man World 2 is, probably, more popular and it was reported to be difficult and boring to crack.)

PMW2 crack was made, it was just DMCA'd. Google it. It's elsewhere too.

True, true, so let's wait a few years!
