Hello, Iam happy to have found this forum because for many years I thought I was the only one loving the Silent Storm series!
They are great and I play them through from time to time. Thats why I was so happy that I found Hammer and Sickle yesterday in a garage sale because its really hard to find ! Box and manual and all! However here comes the problem.

After installing the game, and trying to start it.
A window comes up telling me that I have to install something Before playing. Sure no problem. However after that short installation it requires the computer to be restarted to work. Fine I thought. Here is where things get nasty.

The whole computer wouldnt start. It came to the windows recovery page saying the comuter wont start and the computer was searching for the problem. 20 mins later when the computer had searching and finding and removing the problem. It finally started like it should. But hammer and sickle was removed from the computer. The only explantion must have been that H&S made the computer angry :S

I tried this on a older computer but with the same result. Could somebody help I really want to play this game :)

Thanks!

If you're installing old box version I believe it uses old Starforce protection. The starforce probably is the main issue here.
After installing H&S don't install the thing it asks. You should go and download latest starforce drivers for the OS you are using.

The second option is to go to www.gamecopyworld.com and download no-cd crack. You just need to be careful with lots of ads banners.

I thought there was driver download on that page. I never had to use it since it's better to use no-cd crack for starforce. My suggestion would be to install that driver from CD, but don't restart your PC. Instead download that update which is on the bottom of the page and run it.

Iam sorry to trouble you with my problem once more but I did as you said. Installed the updater, and restarted the computer. Now when Iam trying to start the game the starforce application comes up saying the installation was a succses and I need to reboot the computer Before I can start. Now I have tried to restart it both normally and via the application but the same thing happens. The application comes up and ask me to reboot the computer XD

Big big thanks so far!

Thanks

Can't help you further as I didn't do those steps. I only said what I would do in your place. I guess the best solution would be to download that no-cd crack.

Or type "Hammer&Sickle Winodws 7 starforce" problem in google and follow the lead from there. I'm guessing you're using Windows 7 (or 8)
