I was dead chuffed last week. Getting Freedom Force vs The 3rd Reich for a nice 99p (with free postage) on eBay. Brand new and in the wrapper to. Seemed a great bargain and as I liked the original game (albeit many years ago) I eagerly loaded it onto my computer this weekend… and spent 5 hours trying to remove the naff copy protection system that kept telling me I need Windows XP or 2000 etc. to run the game.
Even my attempt at running it on an XP virtual machine were thwarted as I think Service Pack 2 is another unsupported OS. So I’m down to trying to find a non-service packed version of XP at work tomorrow, installing Windows 2000 or downloading a dodgy copy of the game to see if that plays. Hooray for DRM.
