Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you thank you for not using copy protection Brad. It's so refreshing not having to worry about the inevitable build up of scrapes and scratches on a well used disk rendering the game unuseable. Heck, I downloaded straight from Stardock, the box arrived last week, but I've not even removed the seal from the cd case.
Unfortunately, I bought X3 without realising that it used Starforce (yeah, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to DRMs).
I've read that even if I now uninstall the game, Starforce will remain on my system..... wtf?!
I have serious issues with the fact that Starforce wasn't even hinted at on the box, nor do I remember being implicitely asked if I wanted to install third party software.... hell I thought it would be a requirement to have reasonable warning that your program was gonna install a completely different, INVASIVE program.
The kicker is, I only played X3 for a week because even though I have the required system specs the framerate drops to near uselessness in busier systems.
So how exactly do I get rid of this Starforce garbage?
