Does Anacapri require the DVD to be in the drive in order to play?
My PC seems to have lost the ability to read DVD-ROMs. I could
transfer the files over from another machine, but I'd like to first
know whether it's possible.
I took the DVD of the game out of the DVD Rom drive, (its just one
DVD) and got into the game OK without the DVD being in the DVD
drive. After I install a game, I usually just leave the DVD or CD
in the drive. This game is mostly real scenery of Anacapri. It
takes quite a while to install.
How long did it take to install? When I tried I assumed the installer had
crashed it was taking so long. Never got it working.
A long time. Twenty minutes? The file list in the install dialog box
was scrolling by, but it was scrolling in bursts. If I looked back
every minute or so, I could see it updating.
My install hack (transferring the files over from a Mac) did work, in
case you were on the edge of your seat wondering. I played a little of
_Anacapri_, but I won't get into it until I finish off _Penumbra
And my _Anacapri_ installation was probably *fast*, because I was
installing from a hard drive image, not from the original DVD. If you
do it the common way, add however long it takes your DVD reader to
suck down five gigs of data.
