I bought the gold edition pack for 9 dollars at walmart. Just wondering if there's anyways to play this w/o having to insert a cd in everytime.

I'm kinda spoiled by the latest Starcraft/D2/War3/C&C: 1st decade patches as well as Steam games that require no cd to play the respective games.

Yes, but it might be against the ToS to talk about, even though you own the game.

I'd also like to know how to do this. Does one of the official patches include a no cd patch?

I have a netbook that I'd like to be able to play this on (no CD drive) so if I load it on w/ my external (wall-powered) CD/DVD drive I would have a portable game. I've also been looking into CD emulators for this type of thing--if anyone could point me towards one that is reputable, it would be much appreciated.

Get the 2.0b patch. It allows No CD play.

Alcohol 52% is free and is a good CD emulator when you run out of plans. I use it. I always have a separate hard drive to store every CD I have. With the amount of disc I have, is easier to just use an emulator as opposed to searching for the disc underneath my bed somewhere (scary place).

Is not really TOS violation when you give an example of a an emulator, is not illegal to have or make such programs. And you are certainly not giving info in

There is not a problem except you trying to find one.
