Suddenly I'm wishing I hadn't thrown out my old WC1 and WC2 discs. And Diablo1+Hellfire and Diablo2. And Starcraft. Literally 3 weeks ago. 

 

And yes, I had both the DOS and Windows versoins of WC1+2. Ah, the good old days, pre-Battle.net, of using Kali to emulate a LAN for playing WC2 online. Fun days, those.

OMG - CAG's are pack-rats and don't throw away game discs! :P

 

EDIT:

EDIT 2:

Especially so I don't constantly double-post, triple-post or more.

And especially so I can fix something, add something, proofread a post, or do God knows what to a post.

Seriously, get a CD Binder, they're awesome at holding old game discs and the sort... organized, tidy and far far less space.

Something about it being old and not supporting modern systems well. It ran on 3DFX IIRC. I guess it doesn't run so well anymore and Blizzard are too lazy to fix it.

I owned stock in 3DFX. Did not end well. Helped me offset some gains BC, when I had money, though.

 

Now, it would just offset losses. :(

Seriously, get a CD Binder, they're awesome at holding old game discs and the sort... organized, tidy and far far less space.

The other thing I do - is if it has manuals and stuff, I'll flatten-out a game box (if it's cardboard) and stuff multiple jewel cases within another retail game-box. Usually, I do that for a game series.

Example:

-> I have my old Diablo 1 jewel-case sitting there within Diablo 2 retail game-box. It fits.

 

Another thing I do - is I'll take those plastic cases that give me enough room and ain't got enough discs sitting on its CD-pole, and put multiple game series or versions within that box and on the pole.

Examples:

-> I have Fable TLC Retail Box. It has like 4 CD's. I also have a Steam-version, which I cut onto one DVD and put that on the pole.

-> I have Res Evil 4 PC retail box. It has a bunch of CD's on its pole. I also put my Steam back-up folder of RE5 on a few DVD's on that pole.

-> I have Retail copies of STALKER: SOC + Clear Sky. SOC came in a nice DVD retail box case w/ multiple discs on a pole, while Clear Sky's just came in a slim DVD case w/ room to put one disc on its pole. I put Clear Sky DVD in the SOC box. I pulled the Clear Sky cover off its cases and used that blank slim DVD case for some other 1 DVD-disc game.

 

EDIT :

Also, sometimes - the game-cases I have, they have an empty place in the jewel case. I'll put more discs there.

Example:

-> Retail copies of Vampire: Bloodlines comes in a quadruple CD jewel-case. Game came w/ 3 CD's, while 4th slot is completely EMPTY. I filled that case - I cut a disc there w/ a fair deal of data in there (patches, unofficial patches, save files from multiple play-throughs, etc).

So, after you plug in your cd key for Warcraft III at Blizzard, and they give you digital versions, then you download said digital versions and attempt to install said game, it ask you to insert the game cd. WTF? Why did I go through all this effort if I still have to have the CD, and had to have a valid game key to download it?

Weird.  Diablo 2 (Mac & PC) don't have this issue (never did, never needed the CD to play back in the day either -- things you're sure of when you game on a laptop).

I can't speak if new version work this way (ain't DL'ed them)...

...but I think some of the older Blizz legacy games, there are actual way to bypass the DRM.

 

EDIT:

You have to take the game's INSTALL.EXE; copy it to game-folder; and rename to [gamename].MPQ.

{actually checked patch files + notes I had laying around on one of my external HDD's}

That's instructions for SC + Brood War.

D2 + LoD work a little different.

apparently the game installer was reading the "empty" virtual cd-rom drive I had running on Virtual Clone Drive, to mount and run ISO's.

I still got the files and instructions I took long ago from Blizz's site on my external HDD.

Here's how you did it w/ disc-versions of SC + Brood War & D2 + LOD..

 

Starcraft - Have to take the game's INSTALL.EXE (from SC disc); copy it to game-folder; and rename that file to Starcraft.MPQ.

Brood War - Take that game's INSTALL.EXE (from BW disc); copy it to game-folder; and rename that file to BroodWar.MPQ.

 

Diablo 2 + LOD - Install D2 base; Take game's d2xvideo.mpq + d2xmusic.mpq (from LoD disc); copy those files to game-folder; install D2: LOD expansion; run the LOD patch you want to use; boot game.

For those of you redeeming keys on Blizzard's site, the original Blackthorne is available to download for free (and it's keyless) when you click "Game Client Downloads", it's under Classic Games.

Stuff like this would annoy me to no end even if I would eventually put up with it. I abandoned my WoW account after they made the switch to Blizzard.net. It didn't work so I just said screw it.
