New games without nasty protection?

Post by Tzupy » Thu Mar 22, 2007 1:00 pm

I am interested to BUY and play Company of Heroes and Supreme Commander, but NOT if they are using Starforce.
A friend of mine said he saw somewhere that CoH is using Starforce, that's why I didn't get it yet.
If someone knows for sure the protection status of these two games, please reply and many thanks.
I couldn't find such info myself, only found protection type for older games.

Zalman LQ1000 liquid cooled case + dampening material + PVC tubes + MCP350 with EK top (acetal) and decoupling kit + Nexus 120mm + Xigmatek 200mm + HDD cage removed | Asus Maximus III Formula (ROG) | Intel Core I7 870 + EK Supreme (acetal) | 8GB Kingston | AMD Radeon HD 5850 1GB O/C + EK full cover block (acetal) | Western Digital Black 1TB + NoVibes III + Nexus 120mm (5V) | Seasonic X-850

Thank you for the reply! I already saw that Boycott Starforce list, but wasn't sure how complete it is.
The forum link was most helpful, thank you. I'll buy my legit copy of CoH ASAP.

Latest version of Supreme Commander does not contain any DVD protection (ie, you dont need the DVD in the drive for anything after install.

I bought my legit copy of CoH today, and I confirm that it doesn't need the disc in the drive while playing.

Yup, and the game kicks ass too! I am hoping to see an expansion hopefully...but some of the user made maps are pretty awesome too (I think from Fileplanet is where I get most of mine).
