Anyone know if this is just the standard SecuRom or is it the NEW or even the NEW4.x/5.x? And is it only protected on the play disc or are all the discs protected?


#2

Play disc is the only one protected, but this is now totally irrelevant as all the upgrades have removed the requirement to have the disc in the drive.


#3

Ok, so only the Play disc is protected but which protection is it using? Anyone know?


#4

hm, as i can remind it should be SecuROM NEW 4.8 - but this is absolutely UN-important as you can easily copy it with nero as long as you install the latest updated - it removes the cd-/dvd-check from the game, so the protection is irrelevant…


#5

So if I DL the new copy for Nero then I will be able to copy this game as a normal game to game copy?


#6

you have to d-load the latest update for UT2004 !

www.unrealtournament.com

THIS official update removes the cd-check…


#7

Why are so many companies removing the protections they spent millions investing in, the new Half-Life 2 patch removes SecuROM.

who knows, maybe those protections are free for those developers… :wink: LOL :bigsmile: :smiley: ironically

we have a winner…

I too use a liteon 52327s and it did this copy no worries.

Once aquiring alcohol 120 and twinpeaks, it was no problemo.

It has been stated in another thread, but here is how i did it (play disc)

  1. used alcohol 120 on the securom *new profile to make a clone cd ccd image of the play disc.

  2. downloaded the bwa from here http://www.makeabackup.com/downcat1-60-titleA-10.html

because i could create a bwa using bb5, but it was corrupted everytime by a read error on the playdisc. (any ideas??)

  1. used twinpeaks v0.2 to combine the downloaded bwa and the ccd.

  2. used alcohol 120 with the securom *new profile to burn the patched.ccd to a verbatim 80min datalifeplus cd-r. (when it asked about TOC information, i used the top retain option from the 3 provided.

This disc runs, no emulation or hidden media settings of any kind. plays like a bought one.

hope this helps.

p.s. the drive i play it from is the same one it was ripped and burnt with. the liteon 52327s. (long live the mighty liteon)

There is a saying that you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink.
Somewhat similar to situation here.


#11

is that to say i should not have wasted my time, and instead just updates my install,

or that my post is wasting my time because no one will read it???

lol just curious…

i mean, i came here looking for answers… and found them.


#12

either way tim, the satisfaction is in the journey, they may re-install the protection later who knows…

but 6-12 months after release they dont bother putting the protection back on
