Ok, recently picked this up (after Tim sent me RS for free, sorry can't remember your GG nick) and did the install. Installed just fine and RS works, but AS asks me to put in the CD. Well the CD is in the drive (CD-2), but it fails to launch. I took a look at the forums at the official site and find that some CD writers may be incompatible. :evil: So I yank a 52x drive out of another comp and install that. Still no luck. I did all the updates I could on both RS and AS. Anyone have any other ideas?

Actually, for reasons unknown, Athena Sword needs the ORIGNAL Rainbow Six 3 CD in the drive to run. The one needed to run the original RS3 itself.

I found that out too when I bought the combo package with RS3 with AS in it.

Why did they do it this way? Good question.

And, no, I'm not the same Tim mentioned above. smile
