And about other stuff: I'm currently rehashing my collection from (not so good) Windows days. Alas, most games I own are DRM-protected (StarForce copy protection) thus are not working per se (without NoCD crack).
Does anyone know if it is OK to report on AppDB for a game that will not launch without a crack but works well with it? And if it is OK then what rating should it get? "Garbage"?
stating in your report that a NoCD patch is required to get past the copy protection is fine.
Just don't include any links or further details how to acquire the crack.
If the game works fine otherwise, I'd rate it as Silver.
Though the rating standards do vary a lot ....
Personally i am always more interested in the details of the report than the exact rating :)
