Will I get in trouble for it?

I legally own a copy of BF2142, yes, I do. I don't like switching out CDs, so this is where my question is coming from. If I made an .iso of the 2142 DVD and used it to run the game, is there any way that EA could find out about it and yell at me/ban my account/CD key? I'm using all of the emulation options on Daemon tools; RMPS, Laserlock, Securom, Safedisc are all enabled. I know my game runs fine using the image, I just don't want to get EA coming down on my ass for using a mounted image of a disc I own. In case no one believes that I own 2142 Since no one reads, my image works and I only wanted to know if I could get in trouble for using one.

    I forgot if EA detects for that, but it is absolutely possible for them to find out.

    My friend uses GameJackel, and I just used a mini-image or a crack before.

    It won't do anything if you get the right one, just steer clear from shady sites.

    Like I said..I own a legal copy of 2142, and I have the DVD. I don't want to use the DVD, so I have a mounted image, which works.

    Don't you only need one of the discs to run 2142?

    Why would you put all of them onto one if you only use the others for installation.

    The question is, will PB kick you for using a virtual disc or not? Let alone if the game will actually load with the virtual disc being used.

    I do not see any reason for them to be able to ban you or whatever. I mean you BOUGHT the game and have a valid CD key. The game should load. I mount images all the time. I didn't know that they could detect you using a Vdrive though. Chances of being caught are most likely slim.

    I cant remember if BF2142 checks if the disc is in a drive before loading. If it does then it wont load off the virtual drive.

    Well I used a Mini-Image for BF2 because i simply lost my play disc.(Yes, I actually own the game legally I had just lost the play disc, I cried.)

    But that should work.

    It does check for the disc, and I've launched the game using my virtual disc.

    I haven't played on a server using my virtual disc, but I'll have to try that.

    I'm pretty sure they wouldn't find out under usual circrumstances; It would probably require them to come round your house and physically check, and we can be absolutely certain that isn't going to happen. I wouldn't suggest you worry too much, but just don't go around the game declaring your virtual copy loading drivers and you should be fine.

    Try enabling all of the emulation options with Daemon Tools. That's what I did, and it works for launching the game.

    You don't need the image but just the fixed exe for the proper patch.
    Then you put the exe in your game folder.
