Doom3 protection?

#1

Anybody knowing what the protection will be on Doom3?


#2

As soon as it comes out I am sure someone will post it here. You are just going to have to wait awhile.


#3

I know :slight_smile: Just a bit curious, and maybe someone would know by now.

@Dazzler

Please do not post these types of questions in the Copy Protection List forum.


#5

Ups, you’re absolutely right :eek: Feel free to delete this thread :slight_smile:


#6

Being an id software game i’d say there will be no protection on it like the rest of their games


#7

DOOM III will be use SafeDisc v.3.2.XXX


#8

Whenever you post speculation, please post support to your theory as well!

How do you know it is SD 3+?


#9

From another board … Deamon Tools


#10

it probably will use sd 3+ because the companies have learned that safedisc 3+ is harder to copy than securom, and more safe than starforce.
I predict that every major game in the future will have sd


#11

ok, so basically there are those saying there won’t be any protection because ID Software never used them before; and seem to be against using them (But then neither did Activision - until recently)

Then there are others saying it will be the most recent version of safedisc (3.2*) because that’s what Activision has been using on their games for a year.

Yet another group of people say it will be star-force because … well because that’s what they dream of at night. Or maybe to spread fear? :wink:

I don’t see the point really… why not wait for someone to buy it and report it here? Do you mean to say that you might skip on a great game because of its copy protection?


@nooby god: you probably mean SF3 (StarForce 3) not SD3 (SafeDisc 3).


#12

Yes i agree with Doug. We’ll just have to wait and see, although there is no harm talking about it, it’s all just speculation until it is released.


#13

yes i did i was looking a an array-scan and typing the post. I fear that all games will be with sf because of the fears of piracy. I know some one that works for ea games and he said that they got a report on different copy protections and which ones they should use when their contract ends. :eek:


#14

If StarForce3 would be the protection, a 1:1 backup is not possible for the time being? Is it possible to make an installable backup? If so, which program and hardware is recommended? Is there a guide for this?


#15

Starforce 3 is currently not possible to make a 1:1 copy.
You should be able to install a backup, like any normaly copied cd, but not be able to run it.

A tool (that hasnt been confirmed yet) could make a copy (maybe not 1:1, i dont know) is around but yet to be released to the public.

I suggest this thread be closed as people may get the wrong idea what protection Doom III will be, as nobody knows for sure as of yet.


#16

Hopefully its not SafeDisc as for some reason I have a lot of problems installing from SafeDisc protected games (CRC errors at random when installing). Although I have had no problems making backups.


#17

Weird, what units do you use for installing?


#18

just this.
