For multi-disk games you should only need an ISO or mini image of the first disk in order for the game to run.

Thanks, but its the 1st disc that won't allow an ISO to be made from it. Same with the other 2 disc game, no problems with the 2nd disc's but the first ones just spin in the drive and no progress is shown in the Cyberlink ISO app. If I can't get them, no biggie, its just 2 games that are 2 disc sets.

Hey No Problem, ask away, ....Yes I do use steam. When I built my gaming rig a few weeks ago, some items came with free game coupons like Mafia II and Metro2033. Not a big fan of steam, I'm sure they collect a lot of data from your game playing. Its most likely never personally link to anyone, but still seems invasive.

Also bought Railworks2 at half price! It was just released maybe a week ago and the day of its launch and the next 3 days is was half price! I have the older version rail simulator and spent countless hours creating tracks, routes, roads, scenario, and setting up automated rail traffic that are program to stop at stations for passengers or deliver freight.

For me the game is boring just driving the trains, its that you can create a full scenario yourself creating just what they have done.

If you Youtube Rail Simulator, you'll find some videos of peoples works. Some might be very short, but keep in mind when you start there's is nothing but flat land. You have to create everything. Long hours I spend making routes and hardly run them, but will always keep adding to the route.

...Its kinda like SimCity 3000 but taken to a much higher level b/c crossing lights have to be set right or crashes abound, ....and thats fun too! he he


I tried 3 times to type this out last night , but every time I run IE spell check, if I just click back into the post editor, wham the page redirects and the post is gone.
I finally had to stop due to a strong desire to throw this laptop thru a wall! lol

Now what I do is select all and copy before spell check, and if it will let me, copy it after if I need to make a change. Any time after running spell check, if I went to make adjustments or added more info, I'd loose the post and the page redirected. I wanted to pull my hair out. Did the same with the PM to Shawn (Brink) too. I gave Up.

Thanks Again!
