Succesfuly ompleted Lost in Time CD version without ripping 

Recently I mounted a CD image of LiT to play with SVM. The engine recognised the game, but popped a warning that running directly from the CD is not supported and it is suggested to rip the game and play from the HD.

Nonetheless i played and finished all the game without any problems (other than a graphic glitch which I remember was also in DOSbox). So I thought like reporting to the devs that it can be completable without ripping. I don't know what the possible problems were implied in the warning but perhaps it should be removed. Smile

I think the problem with running from a CD is the time it takes to access data from a CD drive which could cause stuttering in audio and video or freezing while accessing data. That isn't an issue if you are mounting a CD image from the hard drive.

Of course I could be wrong.
