I just ordered the PC version of the game, and I am wondering if I need to do anything special to set it up or if it will work out of the (beautiful) box? Any patches or other stuff I should be aware of? I am running windows 10.

Sweet tyvm, now I just have to wait anxiously for my big box to get here 😃

You'll want to make sure you're running it in administrator mode and also sometimes running in compatibility mode for Windows XP is necessary on Windows 10, otherwise there are a lot of glitches and crashes that can occur while playing.

Two more questions, will it be possible for me to make iso files of the discs, are they protected? Also does the game have a cd-key requirement? I am getting the full box, I just am curious because I like to back up old CD's.

Not sure about making the ISOs, should work fine, it has a CD check if I recall correctly though so you'll need the ISO mounted or a no-CD crack if you want to play your backup. Doesn't require a cd key as far as I'm aware.

It doesn't require a CD key, but has a CD-check.

The game doesn't even read anything from the actual disc after you enter the game though and reads from the installed files. You can eject the CD as soon as you boot it up and the game will have no issues playing. So, guessing it's just a sort of 'anti-piracy' check.

are we allowed to use a no-cd exe for this or is that considered a mod?
