My first experience was with Syberia II. The game loads fine, but it seems the copy protection used by the software vendor (Macromedia) searches for LEGAL programs such as CloneCD, NERO, and other CD Duplicators. If found, the game makers advise you have to disable (doesn't work) or uninstall these programs so their program will run! I just checked, and it seems MAXIS has employed the same protection for Sims 2.

I understand the gaming vendors are concerned with piracy, but I draw the line at them dictating what programs I can have on my machine. Some would say you can simply not purchase or return the title, but unfortunately, they do not warn you beforehand of the protection and once opened, no store will allow a return for reimbursement. In the end, if someone is determined to play the game, this practice will encourage otherwise honest people to seek dishonest ways to obtain the games!

Tanks!! Still haven't received a reply from EA/Maxis. Mwife loves this game, so I'm probably going to have to deal with it. Surprised I haven't read more about this in the sister pub. PC Gamer.
