No Longer Require CD?
« on: September 10, 2009, 09:22:36 AM »
A wierd thing happened this morning.  I normally don't remove the CD or if I do I put it back right away.   Well a couple of days ago I took out the CIV4 bts Cd and forgot about it.  I didn't realize this as I was and am still able to play!  I haven't done anything to crack it or made any config changes.  So why is it working without the CD?   Is it the patch that was recently loaded?   Anyone else no longer require the CD to play the game?

REALLY!   :bow:

Is this old news then?   I had no idea the patch did this ... was it intentional I wonder?

Yes, 3.19 removed DRM. And it was an intentional change. The latest Civ Complete packages come DRM free also.

Yes I beleive that this was done as a marketing/image thing, to increase the market awareness of the Civ franchise prior to some future game release.  But nice all the same whatever the reason.
