I've got Unreal Tourmanent (GOTY) installed on an external hard drive
and have lost (lots of moving to and from uni this year and now we're
packed up to move home, and they're not in any sensible places) the
install disks. On windows I don't need the disks to play. Can I use
this Loki thing to play from an existing install, do you know?
