No-CD Patch for FS2004 - Anything else affected?

I noticed the size of the replacement file FS9.exe is half the size of the original. I also installed the Microsoft updates for FS9. If I replace the FS9.exe with the patch will anything else be affected (settings, updates installed, and functions or capabilities)?

You should not experience any problems. Since you updated FS9 to FS9.1 use the appropiate updated 9.1 No-cd patch.

If worried, just rename fs9.exe to FS9.EXE_OLD ... You can always go back if you think something is wrong ...rob

In a word: no. Still I recommend backing up or renaming the original as Habu suggested. This is easier than going into your original CDs with WinRAR and extracting the file if for some reason you need it again (you won't).

The new .exe file is smaller because it doesn't have the wretched copy protection scheme in it, muwahahahahahaha.

Enjoy,
