Most games I have that have StarForce have been hacked by now or I have digital download versions like GT Legends and GTR-2 on Steam which have it removed.
Only two notable exceptions are Trackmania Original and Trackmania Sunrise Extreme, which happen to be my favorite Trackmania games. ☹️
Until a couple of years ago I ran a Windows XP machine just to run those games, I've yet to rebuild it, I think I needed the harddrive for some console mod project I was doing.
Trackmania Original's StarForce DRM can be bypassed, however it requires that part of StarForces' DRM to be installed. That means you have to install the game, patch it, let it install the StarForce drivers, remove the BSOD-causing .dll's from C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and System32, and then it runs without triggering StarForce.

Thankfully with Trackmania Sunrise's StarForce DRM, it has been fully removed, without needing to touch StarForce. Link: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/TrackMania_ … se#Issues_Fixed
Oh and if you want to get Trackmania Nations ESWC running on Windows 10, that's possible too! Someone cracked the game.
