View Full Version : I bought SH3...then uninstalled it

I saw SH3 in a local store yesterday and bought it. I have been considering getting the game for some time, but didn't until now because of concerns about Starforce.

I played SH3 for several hours last night, and absolutely loved it. But later I tried to play a couple other games. When I tried to run Patrician 3 I got the message "disk verification error" and was unable to launch the game. When I tried to play Chariots of War it took a looong time for my CD drive to read the disk.

I then reluctantly downloaded and ran the Starforce removal tool, and now I am no longer getting disk verification messages, and all my other games load quickly.

I'm so irritated that I've just uninstalled SH3. I REALLY enjoyed playing it last night, but I am bothered by having something on my system that interferes with other games I play a lot. I'm not sure I want to go to the trouble of removing SF and restarting my computer every time I play SH3 and want to move on to play something else.

I'm very, very, VERY disappointed in Ubi and this absurd Starforce system-crippler.

There needs to be a "gold" version of SH3 without Starforce.

That's not what I was told on another forum.

I was told that if you remove SF, it reinstalls when you launch SH3.
