Black Shark 1 dvd version install


Recommended Posts

Hi! I bought a boxed copy of DCS Blackshark - i know its old and there is all the new stuff on dcs world now, but i like the old games




i noticed that this game is using starforce, so i would like to know if this will work on windows 10 - will the starforce install break my computer (like what happened years ago with starforce with American Conquest Divided Nation)



- i am just asking this first as i dont want to install the game and then have it ruin my computer

As I recall Starforce doesn't work with Win10 at all?

I have the digital copy of Ka-50 (the first one, aka Black Shark 1), and I installed it again in my Windows 10. AFAIK, it uses some kind of "soft starforce" (without drivers) to check for authenticity.

Although I was able to install it, I'm not able to start it (it just flashes and goes back to desktop).

Using Win10 1903 with latest nVidia drivers (440.97).

Hi JJflyer, is your copy digital or DVD? Now I'm curious why it isn't running on my end, as I run DCS without problems.
