First of all I want to say hello to everyone on this forum, because it’s my first post here.
I recently got my hand on the german version of Kreed published by Activision. I made several attempts to copy this game but nothing worked. I even can’t figure out what protection it uses. I allready tried Protection ID v5.0, Aray-Scanner v1.0, Aray-Scanner v2.0 and ClonyXXL v188.8.131.52, but all programs only say “No/unknown Protection”. Then i tried to make a BWA File to see if it’s SecuROM, but after over 5 hours he only got 0.17 (right 0.17!!!) percent. I also tried to read the DPM structure with Alcohol v184.108.40.2065 but again after many hours only a few percent (i think it was 3% or so) and so i aborted again. Then i tried CloneCD v220.127.116.11 and i finally got my images of the 2 CD’s after about 30mins for CD1 and 2 hours for CD2. I tried to play the game from the mounted images with Deamon Tools to eventually get a hint on what protection it is, but when i launch the game there is no error message or loading screen or something wich indicates what protection it is (the game doesn’t start either). But when i made the image with CloneCD i recognized there are many bad sectors on both CD’s (by the way, the game starts from both CD’s so they must both have the copy protection on them) … on CD1 from 3255-25000 and then from 327504-352000 … on CD2 from sector 3255-25000 and then from 133504-350500. I also attached the CloneCD LOG-Files to this post, maybe it’ll help.
