Normally I wouldn’t be upset over an application that exists to either make successful backups of games I purchased, or make successful images of games I purchased. However, because I paid to register Alcohol 120%, I would at least expect it to make a working copy of a copy-protected DVD, or at least a working image of one to use on the virtual drive. After paying for the program because I was under the impression that it would have support for copy-protected DVDs, it still does not. Therefore, I’m left very few options. I’m not about to come up with $50 just to get a 5 CD version of a SecuROM 7.x protected game that I already own on DVD, just so Alcohol can actually make a working copy or image of it. I’m also not about to download Daemon Tools 4 and have to disable my IDE drives, that’s a big fat joke. My point is, I paid a decent amount of scratch for a program that I can’t use.
When are we going to get a version of Alcohol that actually emulates the latest copy protections from a DVD, without the need of some 3rd party modifications? (SR7 Stop, Anti-blaxx, etc.) When are we going to get a version of Alcohol that has a SecuROM 7.x or SafeDisc 3.x data-type setting which works on DVDs and not just CDs?
