I agree that it is not worth what they ask for it, but then again I am an aged pensioner and
funds are always a little tight.
I would also advise that both my wife and myself have the same computers but the NBI2
refuses to load onto my machine but works ok on my wifes machine?, the seller cannot
answer why, and the other problem with the NBI2 is that it requires the disk to be in the
drive and therefor requires constant removal when we wish to use another disk, this has
caused both of us to drop the NBI2 disk numerous times!, I know old folks are not
supposed to complain because the world revolves around the younger set, but it would
have helped if we could have had the option install fully onto the computer without
the need for the disk to be in the drive.
While not condoneing any piracy, there are many situations where these protection schemes cause considerable inconvenience. Particularly where CD emulation software is being used, as in a library situation.
I would simply note that the NBI 2 CD uses the same protection scheme as the game, Doom 3 and thus there are products available to satisfy these needs.
