This mod has no effect on the EA Game Launcher. You will need to start the game directly, rather than through the launcher.

If you are encountering difficulties running this mod, it is most likely the case that you have a scripting mod installed that is not compatible with your Patch Level.
  • Broken mods tend to bounce the loadup process, and may result in this mod not loading properly.
  • To correct this issue, perform a Clean Folder, and then install only those mods the creator has verified are compatible with your Patch Level.

Note that this mod disables the following EA Standard coding:
  1. Disc Authentication (obviously)
  2. The Corrupt Game Found prompt, and the corresponding repair system required to fix games broken by World Adventures.
    • Note that this only applies to very old save-games made saved prior to the release of World Adventures.
  3. The "Scripting Mods Found" window
  4. The Auto-login prompt used for ShowTime online social features


As always, ensure that you backup your save files prior to installation of this mod. As Murphy said: If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong.
