    It is no drm (digital rights management). You are referring to copy protection.

    Technically speaking, you're right Blazkowicz. However, philosophically speaking, DRM is not an entirely innacurate term to refer to copy protections. They do, after all, manage your rights to use the program/game by forcing you to use the original disc, and they are a digital solution. So in it's own way, it is a form of DRM, even if it isn't actually a true DRM.

    yup have to agree there, disk based drm (license is the disk kind of), key file / registry / activation drm (like dt pro kind of) and so on.. all variations on drm.. still drm none the less

    i don't mind getting my original disks, when i make a image and it doesn't work because of the copy protection, it will work a few months later.
    so the first weeks i am playing with original discs and after that i use my images.
    i think thats a good solution.
    i don't like the steam thing, i want something solid, a game with a disc and book(which i can read when the game installs).

    Cool

    I hate to be the one to say it but I totally hate CD/DVD's.......

    Now you have to understand that I work for a LAN center as the Head Tech.... for so long Daemon Tools has been their for us (and any other lan center in existence) and with YASU it makes offering such a wide variety of games possible

    However in order to make the most slick gaming pc's NO CD/DVD ROM's are in use here... we have 80 SFF PC's 40 copies of every game we offer (and lic management) and as such not having a working YASU or Daemon Tools is not really something we can live with...

    For being Head Tech I make shit and always am scraping by otherwise I would love to donate like $200 to sYk0 to fuel his desire for this project... so please don't let this die otherwise you kill any LAN Center's chance of being fully functional and a great place to be for all their gaming needs!....


    (already C&C3 with latest patch we have had to temporarily remove from our games list along with a few others... BF2142 being another one with its halfway map loading glitch with the EA Downloader files copied....)

    As always BIG thanks to sYk0 and the Daemon Tools Team please keep it alive maybe one day the gaming industry will realize the folly they are partaking in... (like EA's latest overview of how the gaming industry isn't going to continue working as it currently is)


    Thanks

    All of the Valve games, and some of the 3rd party games that are published by Valve through Steam, can be bought in the store and then registered through Steam so you can have both. A physical copy, and then a disk-less method of playing the game. Personally, I love Steam's distribution model. I think they're one of the few who got it right. It's not perfect (their policy states they can block accounts if you're caught sharing, and they consider it sharing even if it's in the same house), but overall, I think it's a good system.

    Copy protections and users who are tired to play with original disk is a digital WAR because they don't trust us but we have to trust them... ha ha ha...

    Unfortunately the WAR will never end.
    One time YASU will win, then the protection will be enforced, then YASU will be too and etc...
    Its an infinite loop.

    Well true fact : Usually before to buy DT Pro, i didn't care about Protection who require original disc so i given to my Player and it was ok.
    BUT, after broken some original disc because using it a lots! There i started to become seriously FURIOUS against PROTECTION COPY.

    Look, about Starcraft from Blizzard, i bought 3 original disc...
    About Warcraft 3 Phrozen Throne, i did same...
    THIS IS ABUSED. And i wanna fight against that !
    Yes because when your disc are broken, you request to them to send you another one, its also a War to convince them to send new one to you ! At what price ? Call prices are expensives...

    Welcome to Paranoid World, a World where no one trust each other. That's the result, that's why Copy Protection...


    So thanks for helping us with Y.A.S.U and i wish you Good Luck and Courage
