Not everyone is going to be able to make an emulation free backup, so we have emulation. Also if you only have a CD/DVD writer then you are going to need something to hide the ATIP, using emulation normally takes care of that.
and as securom does not have cd-checks you dont need to use "hide cd-r media" type software like blindwrite or clonecd.
SecuRom does include an ATIP check, if you are running the backups from a CD/DVD-Rom then there is no need to have any ATIP blocking software running. There are some SecuRom titles that do not have an ATIP check, however they are few in number.
oh... portmac your site rocks, and scambaiting sounds fun...
Glad you like it
