Is it possible that Daemon Tools is blacklisted for CM4?
I always get this error:
NOCD2-NOCD2: The copy protection system was unable to verify your copy of Championship Manager. Please ensure you have a valid CD in your CDROM drive.
When I run the game, it gets passed the Securom check and it starts up, but when I try to access team options in the game it quits with that error message.
I also tried with the emulator from Alcohol with all possible emulation settings, but got the same result.
The game runs fine with a backup made with CloneCD/Blindwrite (thus using a REAL cd).
Looks like the protection can detect emulators in some way...
I prefer to run my games using Daemon Tools because it's faster and there's no hassle with cd's all the time. But this is the first one that won't work. I had no problems with other Securom titles like Unreal Tournament and Unreal 2.
