View Full Version : New DVD ....patch Question

The new DVD will be up to version 4.04 ? or just up too PF. This was not clear.

I would think 4.04, will try to get more info.

From the announcement:
"and all the intermediary add-ons."

I assumed that to mean all patches release as of the dvd going gold.

But in Oleg's world you never know for sure what that means.

I think the two burning questionas are.

1. If it is up to 4.04, does it have any new content/bug fixes since then?


2. Does it introduce Starforce to your computer?

Oh, here we go! Everybody duck and cover!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

In short, it's new copy protection technology installed onto your computer when you install new games. SHIII and GTR have it. BoB MIGHT have it.

According to all the traffic out there in the world of the internet, there have been some problems with SF, namely that it tampers with optical drives, or in some extreme cases, renders them inoperable. I have games that install Starforce, however, and have had no problems at all whatsoever, as have the majority of users, I would assume.

Copy protection software. The previous games in the series have used Safedisc / Safedisc2 copy protection but Ubisoft's current standard copy protection is Starforce.

Let's just wait and see shall we. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
