That last phrase makes me very suspicious... is that standard copy protection verbage, or does it sound like some sort of Starforce CP is going to be used?

In my experience, copy protection schemes other than Starforce complain about virtual cd/dvd drives and some CD burning software.

I had problems getting Rome: Total War to run because I had an old copy of CloneCD installed. I am fairly certain R:TW doesn't use starforce.
