How to Play Anno 1701: The Sunken Dragon Without a CD
Anno 1701: The Sunken Dragon is an expansion pack for the popular economic strategy game Anno 1701. It adds a new campaign with 11 missions, four new characters, and a new world editor. However, if you want to play this game without having to insert the CD every time, you will need a no-CD crack.
A no-CD crack is a modified version of the game executable file that bypasses the CD check and allows you to run the game without the original disc. This can be useful if you have lost or damaged your CD, or if you want to save your disc drive from wear and tear. However, using a no-CD crack may also have some drawbacks, such as compatibility issues with patches or online features, or potential malware infections.
Therefore, before you download and use a no-CD crack, you should always make a backup of your original game files, scan the crack file with an antivirus program, and follow the instructions carefully. You should also only download cracks from trusted sources, and avoid using them for online play or piracy.
One of the sources where you can find a no-CD crack for Anno 1701: The Sunken Dragon is GameCopyWorld[^1^]. This website offers various game fixes, trainers, and cheats for PC games. To download the crack, you will need to follow these steps:
Go to https://www.gamecopyworld.com/games/pc_anno_1701.shtml and scroll down to the section \"Game Fixes\".
Choose the version of the crack that matches your game language and edition. For example, if you have the English version of Anno 1701: Sunken Dragon [EN], you can choose \"Anno 1701: Sunken Dragon [EN] No-DVD/Fixed Image #2\".
Click on the file name to open a new page with more details and download links.
Choose one of the mirrors to download the file. You may need to enter a captcha code or wait for a few seconds before the download starts.
Extract the file from the archive using a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip. You should see two files: an image file (usually .iso or .mds) and a mini-image tool (usually Daemon Tools Lite).
Install the mini-image tool and use it to mount the image file as a virtual drive. This will make your computer think that you have inserted the original CD.
Copy the original game executable file (usually anno1701.exe) from your game folder to a safe location as a backup.
Replace the original game executable file with the one from the crack folder.
Run the game as usual and enjoy!
Note that this method may not work for all versions of the game or all operating systems. You may also need to disable your antivirus program temporarily or add an exception for the crack file, as some antivirus programs may flag it as a false positive. If you encounter any problems or errors, you can try using a different crack version or restoring your original game files.
