Lock On: FC3 - Unwilling to buy previous game


Recommended Posts

Is there any possibility this won't require the 2003 game at any point in the future? For me this is a huge barrier. I kinda want FC3, but there's no way I'm gonna spend $30 for some old game I'm never gonna play. I'm guessing this is related to licensing?

 

Is this a common feeling?

Yes it is related to licensing, and yep it is a common feeling. The modules that Wags mentioned in his newsletter are an attempt to get away from this requirement, but you will always have to have lockon for FC3.

Yes due to the license with ubisoft. You need Lomac only(lock on modern air combat). Have to install lomac and then install your module FC3. Then you can uninstall lomac.

Also you might find it boxed cheap in gamestore/musicstore bin's.

Or second hand on the internet. I believe it doesn't need to cost more then 10$ for Lomac

The one thing bugging me about installing Lomac is the copy protection. Is it early Starforce or any other root kit like scheme?

 

LOMAC is devoid of copy protection - Free as a Bird!

The copy I have doesn't have any copy protection.

I just got the digital download straight from Ubisoft this week for $9.99(us) and worked fine for me. Now I'm trying to learn 5 more planes and a Huey and KA-50!!!!! Too many to fly and not enough time!

 

I love that. Get frustrated, shot down, but want more? SWITCH AIRCRAFT CARRY ON
