Yes, I know, torrents are evil. I had the game but it completely destroyed in our recent move. So I decided to torrent it since I did, in fact, own the original. Now, of course, I can't patch it. Am I just screwed? If so, please lock/delete this thread.

Yep. You need the original cd. Torrenting is bad and banned here. So go find/get again that cd before someone comes in and bans you. :P

It's in about 37 pieces. I paid the money for it (actually it was a gift, but still) so wouldn't it be legal to have a backup?

It would be legal to do the following:
Own the intact CD, and make an image of it. Not download an image of somebody else's disc, it must be an image of your OWN DISC. ...and then use that image, keeping the precious original CD in a safe place.

Yeah. Oh well, I kinda expected this would be the result. Thanks anyhow.
