How to Play Star Stable 3 and Morrowind Without a CD
If you are a fan of horse riding games and fantasy RPGs, you might be interested in playing Star Stable 3 and Morrowind on your PC. However, both games require a CD to run, which can be inconvenient or impossible if you don't have a CD drive or a physical copy of the games. Fortunately, there are some ways to play these games without a CD, using either virtual drives or patches.
Star Stable 3
Star Stable 3 is the third game in the Star Stable series, which lets you create your own character and horse and explore the world of Jorvik. The game was released in 2010 and is available for Windows. To play Star Stable 3 without a CD, you will need to download an ISO file of the game and mount it as a virtual CD drive. Here are the steps to do that:
Download Star Stable 3 ISO file from this link. The file size is about 317 MB and contains the game in English, Czech, Finnish, Hungarian, German, Norwegian and Swedish languages.
Download and install a virtual CD drive software, such as DAEMON Tools Lite. This software will allow you to create a virtual CD drive on your PC and mount the ISO file as if it was a real CD.
Run DAEMON Tools Lite and click on the \"Add Image\" button. Browse to the location where you saved the Star Stable 3 ISO file and select it. The file will appear in the list of images.
Right-click on the Star Stable 3 image and select \"Mount\". A new virtual CD drive will appear on your PC with the game icon.
Double-click on the virtual CD drive to run the game installer. Follow the instructions to install the game on your PC.
Once the installation is complete, you can run the game from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut. You don't need to insert a CD or keep the ISO file mounted to play the game.
Morrowind is the third game in The Elder Scrolls series, which lets you create your own character and explore the vast open world of Vvardenfell. The game was released in 2002 and is available for Windows and Xbox. To play Morrowind without a CD, you will need to download a no-CD patch or fix that will bypass the CD check. Here are the steps to do that:
Download Morrowind no-CD patch or fix from this link. There are different versions of patches or fixes depending on your game version and language. Make sure you download the one that matches your game version.
Extract the downloaded file using a software like WinRAR or 7-Zip. You will get a new executable file that will replace your original game executable file.
Go to the folder where you installed Morrowind on your PC. By default, it should be C:\\Program Files\\Bethesda Softworks\\Morrowind.
Rename your original game executable file (Morrowind.exe) to something else, such as Morrowind.bak. This will serve as a backup in case something goes wrong.
Copy and paste the new executable file that you extracted from the no-CD patch or fix into the same folder where you renamed your original game executable file.
Double-click on the new executable file to run the game. You don't need to insert a CD or mount an ISO file to play the game.
Note: Some antivirus software may detect the no-CD patch or fix as malware or virus. This is a false positive and you can safely ignore it or add an exception for it. ec8f644aee
