FADE copy protection: What do you think?

Some articles about it, FYI:Here andHere

Seems like it won’t be easy to beat.

FADE is oooooooooooooooooold man and it wasn’t very effective “in it’s day”. :wink:
It was a simple serialcheck and different checks in the exe… But don’t worry about that, it isn’t a CD-copy protection really. Codemasters usually used Safedisc…

FADE is one of the coolest copy protections i have ever met.

You can play the game , yet you will miss key items to get further in the game. Sounds like shareware to me. Brilliant protection.

Fade to DVD. Seems they’ve sharpened it up a little.

Hmm…I did find it strange that I found out about it on a recent news article and some of those links I posted seemed a little dated.

Turns out it it was the more recent DVD one you’re talking about that I was talking about. Sorry for the confusion.

BlindWrite is already capable of surface scans and emulation.
