CD check still present with SilentPatch


Recommended Posts




I'm trying to run vanilla retail GTA3 (disc version) on Windows 11 with SilentPatch and I'm having no luck. The game does not run (no errors), Windows event viewer reports that SecDrv was blocked:



The SecDrv service failed to start due to the following error: 
This driver has been blocked from loading


This indicates that SafeDisc check was blocked by Windows (to be expected). As far as I understand, SilentPatch should remove the disc check, but it's still there. I did copy all the files from the Audio directory on the play disc to the audio directory in the installation directory.


This is how my installation directory looks like.


What am I missing?



MD5 hash of gta3.exe:
