For those who are not aware, Sony released a new version of SecuROM on 7/15/2002. I am only certain of it’s use in one game - which is Neverwinter Nights, specifically version 1.21.
With the Play Disc properly copied in CloneCD 22.214.171.124, the copy is recognized as the Original by the earlier version of SecuROM (NWN v1.20 and earlier). However, the new version (used in NWN v1.21) does not recognize the copy as an Original. The actual Original works fine - but somehow, it is able to determine that the CloneCD copy is in fact a copy. Does anyone know what Sony did to accomplish this? Since the actual Original works fine, obviously the new code is looking at something it didn't use to - something that CloneCD was/is not able to properly copy. I'm very curious as to what this is - and more importantly, how to bypass it. I, and many others, have tried many variations within CloneCD. AWS on/off, Data Regeneration on/off, etc... Nothing I've tried works with the new version. Any knowledgeable input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Cumulous
