I didn't make it!
Hi All- I have a backup of my Armada II CD and get the following error message "you need your own cd to play". Is there a way around this? I lost my original cd a long time ago. Usually having backups is a good thing, but not when they don't work. Help?!
While I am not in the same situation as you are (I have a legal no CD version), I do need a CD for some of the modding tools e.g. the map editor launcher. What you can do is get a CD image and CD image program such as Daemon Tools. Then just mount the image on your hard drive and play.
You could always download the patch that allows you to play without the CD.
I would choose Mighty's option as sometimes CD images fail and if your backup doesn't work, I don't think the CD image of it is going to work either. Still, if one fails try the other, but I think these are your only options.
A couple of points:-
1) There is no legal no CD Version of Armada II. 2) Discussion of no CD cracks etc. cannot be discussed on this site; it violates more of the forum and network rules than I would care to count.
