Notes

  1. This version of StarForce DRM does not work on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.[1][2] For supported versions of Windows the StarForce driver may need to be updated manually using SFUPDATE.
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/260650/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (260650) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
