SafeDisc 2.0 & Alcatraz CD/DVD Copy Protection CD Media World
Macrovision has announces it's next-generation SafeDisc CD-ROM Copy Protection. SafeDisc 2.0 will arrive this September and it will be available to publishers, developers and replicators.

A new CD/DVD Copy Protections has hit the streets. It is called Alcatraz and it is being developed by KDG (Austria).
It is a cross between SecuROM, which is also based on a watermarking system and SafeDisc, which also uses the executable wrapping system.
One funny thing which is mentioned is the Level 3b Protection, the executable wrapper, is that they claim that the result of an "illegal" start attempt will range from a simple warning message through to a system crash and even right down to re-formatting of the disc drive!
For sure that they will never add this last "feature" as this will result in a nice lawsuit whenever it is introduced in the US!!!

Also the CD Protections pages have undergone some major updating as they were a bit outdated! Thanks BOT-CK for the help!

More on both new CD Protections @ CD Media World!

DAEMON Tools Update GameFix
GameFix has posted DAEMON Tools v1.5 from VeNoM386.

DAEMON Tools Updates:

  • Included Virtual CDROM support. Allows mounting of images with CUE-sheet as virtual CDROM drives!
  • Full support for latest Securom version.

The Addition of the new Virtual CDROM feature is a mayor improvement for playing SafeDisc, SecuROM, LaserLock & LockBlocks protected games from you harddisk.

With the Virtual CDROM feature it is possible to make a CD-Image using BlindRead, DiscDump or CDRWin. This CD-Image can then be mounted as if it is a real (SCSI) CD-ROM. Now install the game from this Virtual CD and it will work without the need for any No-CD Patch or Fixed EXE. The protection emulation only needs to be active when using the newer SecuROM protected games like Diablo 2.

The only disadvantage is that it will eat up an additional 650 MB for the CD-Image but using the smallest possible installation will decrease the used diskspace as the CD is always available!
