Hmmm, Caught between a rock and a hard-place. Pros and Cons.https://www.mywot.com/scorecard/gamecopyworld.comUltimately this site is for the game UT99, and it does not require an extra NoCD patch since we already have it.
There is no reason to ever post links here to GameCopyWorld.
Sorry but it is that simple.
For those that may need the site, I will share my experience with it.
I have safely used GameCopy world for many years, and always patch every game I buy that requires the disc in the drive. My games simply get the same treatment as my music and films, and go into storage (This is is why most of my vinyl music collection still sounds like I bought it yesterday)
I have paid for them and I do not want them to become worn or damaged for no good reason.
The same goes for your optical drive. I know many gamers that Kill their optical drives regularly, even though they hardly use them (even switching your PC on uses some of the life of the laser).
Goods I have paid for will be treated how I see fit within my own home.
You are LEGALLY ALLOWED to make a personal backup of an Original Film, Game or Music CD/DVD as long as you are the owner of the Original CD/DVD.
However Gamecopy World does present us with a problem, even though It does not host or link to pirated games or content, and does not host serials or keygens. Inherently there is nothing illegal about the site, due to the fact the NoCD patches allow very easy piracy if you have a key or keygen etc.
You will find users posting links to external resources, as it is obviously used far more by people that do not own the game.
It is heavily filled with adverts, and depending on who they use there is no way to tell how trustworthy they are.
The main problem with a site like this is the fact that all content is user-created and as such, there are no guarantees with the security of the files.
As always, you should multi-check any downloads from GCW using the VirusTotal service.
Many of the CD patches will ring alarm bells in some AV packages, due to the way they work (same for some security tools I use).
False-positives are common and will show as different virus or trojans in different AV.
Real malware will show the same or similar names and info across different AV.
A service like VirusTotal (there are others) is the only way to be sure.
In short; If you own the game you can use the site legally, however you will be taking a risk if you are not security-aware.
Due to the genuine risks that we cannot control here but are aware of, we cannot allow publicly accessable links.
What you get up to via PMs is your own affair.
