Was wondering if there was anyway to play it on Win. 8? I dont have discs anymore, so anyway of knowing to play/install it (still have CD keys) would be much appreciated

Download the disc images in Tech Support-->Helpful Downloads

Download, Daemon Tools Lite or equivalent ISO reader.

Install those discs, put in your CDkeys.

Download/install the 1.69 update after disc installs.

Do all of this with UAC turned off(tends to corrupt old game installations).

Report back if you have any problems.

Its easy enough to do on your own. Locate the hosts file on your computer (something like c/windows/system32/etc).

Open the file with a text editor like notepad and type the following at the bottom (doesn't necessarily have to be the last line): 0.0.0.0 nwmaster.bioware.com
