Ladies and Gentlemen: SafeDisc 2.9 is there

vbimport

#1

Hi everybody,

I just noticed that the latest update for IGI 2 introduces SafeDisc 2.90.40 to us. At present, there are only US and UK versions available but this should change soon. Can anybody test this new version for us? TIA!


#2

If it was introduced with a patch, then there are no new weak sectors, right?


#3

Sounds reasonable. Maybe they added other stuff to annoy us :wink:
I don’t have that game so I can’t check it out. :frowning:
And you’re right, the most interesting things won’t show up until we see games being rolled out with SD 2.9x on them at release time.


#4

Er, IGI 2=what m8.

Shoey


#5

I’m Going In if i remember correctly.

The game is called IGI Covert Strike.


#6

The big query for me here is whether it upgrades the guard module to check whether the pre-gap has been written correctly or merely emulated.

Obviously, as alexnoe has said already, the patch can’t introduce any new weak sector patterns.


#7

confirmed : updated igi2.exe is sd 2.90.040
backup made with Alcohol still works


#8

That’s a good news :slight_smile:


#9

The big query for me here is whether it upgrades the guard module to check whether the pre-gap has been written correctly or merely emulated.
that’s exactly the point…
can someone tell more about this? how about copies made with clonecd?


#10

As long as i can copy it (emulated or not ) is good enough for me! It would be nice to know how to back it up on Clone CD though :wink:


#11

still no one can confirm if it looks for the pre-gap stuff introduced with 2.8?


#12

It seems that the new SafeDisc 2.90 only blacklists Alcohol and Daemon-Tools. There’s no other visible checks.

There are rumors that a game called “Devastation” is the first game to be mastered using SafeDisc 2.90. I can’t confirm that.

Let’s wait to see if they added new patterns to the mastered disc.

Patches will only introduce blacklisting as they can’t add new patterns.


#13

I have the game devastation, The things so far that I have noticed are as follows: I couldn’t burn a copy with alcohol 120%, or clonecd, these were only my first attempts though. I also found a visual affect, a ring that isn’t a perfect circle. It looks almost like an oval but not pefect. I have affectly got it to run off the image using daemon tools. :smiley:

i had igi 2 but the game is a butt-shot it dosnt even work with the original cd !

It took 1 hr to install since i think even the instaler checks for the protection !

The biggest shi* is that the game wouln not detect its original dis as the original !

He thinks that the original is a copy !!!

This is the only game that i could not play even with the original disks since they always asked for the original disk even if the original was there !

It is true that i had acohol 120 and clone cd installed and nero also !
