    Those drives are garbage. I had one die on me too because of their crappy firmware. I also own several LGP games and cannot install any because of their downtime. I will definately consider this before buying any more games from them. Nothing personal, but i expect to be able to install and run games i buy.

      No Raid1? No daily backups? A single consumer disk for all services?

      Not only that, Western Digital consumer level drives don't have TLER support which means they won't work with RAID (further cementing your point that this drive is less than ideal for a server). Without TLER your drives will fail out of the array rather often, requiring a full rebuild each time. For some older WD drives, it was possible to enable TLER in the firmware, but with the latest drives (ie, 2GB drives) this is no longer possible.

      I recently upgraded to 2 2TB Seagate drives in my RAID1 array for precisely this reason.

      Sounds like they need an experienced sys admin. Unfortunately, I'm already employed.

        RAID1's worthless. Minimum RAID is 5... With RAID1, which is the good copy an which is the bad when you have a single soft write error? (If you can't tell me out of the gate (and you CAN'T)...it's not the thing you thought it was.)

          Although RAID is good. So is having off location of data. So having more than one server for instance. I think having two computers with the same data is better than RAID 1, period.

            "Chemical degradation of the surface"?? They spilled beer on it?
            I also think this unlikely combination of catastrophic failures doesn't seem right. They are all probably on Cancún bathing in the sun by now. In the face of all these problems I have to agree with TwistedLincoln's argument that no DRM system is good to the end-user.

                Well my trust in Mike (LGP Mike) has been pretty much ruined by this.

                  LGP do you hear my voice? DRM STOP my buying games from LGP..

                  watch on 'Bohemia interaktiv' they do not have an DRM system and they still sell games.

                  my only problem on arma1/2 is thats there is no linux version and its imposible to run this game in wine.

                  on the good old 'Bohemia interaktiv' days you can play online with an invalid cd serial for exampel if you do an lan party team playing online and you only have 1 serial... no problem in ofp-resistance.

                  just stop fighting your customers!

                        *cough*

                        Didn't LGP implement DRM because no one was buying their games? I notice that some warez dude has offered to strip it from their games already.

                          Same here.
                          Both X2 and X3 seem to be working just fine.

                            I have bought every title of LGP and they all work perfectly (yes, also the DRMed ones!).

                              Try doing a fresh re-install without their activation servers, and you'll get a different result...

                                That's what I did for every game (including deleting ~/.lpg/) and it worked without any problems.
