    Stubbs the zombie useless in Vista


    Is there a way to get this working in Vista ?
    I asked a question of the makers, "Aspyr" and got a polite "Couldn't give a
    toss" answer.
    If this is the reaction of the game makers, is there any hope of ever
    playing this game on Vista ?

    What does it do or not do exactly?

    You're SOL. Stubbs the Zombie uses Starforce for copy protection.
    Starforce is incompatible with Vista and none of the Starforce games work
    under Vista.

    What's SOL ???? The Sun ? Cheers, mate - praise indeed !
    Irritating, some stinking game protection stopping it working. So, in
    essence, you're honest, you buy the game, and the sh*t they put in the game
    buggers it up.

    We call Starforce 'Starfarce' ;-) And we have boycotted anything that uses
    it.

    Is this a UAC issue ? Or no matter what this doesn't work ? What other games
    use it ? I'm wanting to play now

    This is *false*. I play Silent Hunter 3 which uses StarForce, I just had to
    install the driver for it from
    http://www.star-force.com/protection.phtml?c=83&id=963

    Not much use if I cant find a driver for Stubbs, though.
