Please take a look at my answer here: Bioshock has no sound in Windows 7
I have played this game and shared the problem encountered by user "Mr. Shiny and New". I was able to solve the issue mentioned and put-in what worked for me. This answer was however down-voted with no comments.
When I inquired as to the reason for getting a down-vote I was informed that it was because I had mentioned using a "no-dvd crack".
I want to mention the following points:
1) I don't think a no-dvd crack is illegal as per the usage mentioned.
2) Whether it contains malware or not depends largely on where you're downloading it from. Till now I haven't encountered a single malware from gamecopyworld.com.
3) Until the time Xantec commented on my answer it stood at -1 for quite some time. I felt discouraged to answer anymore questions for this time.
Question: Is the content of this answer actually a bad thing?
Thank you for your time.
Edit: Thank you Grace for your suggestion on what we should be focusing on. I agree with you completely on this and have edited my question accordingly.
