    Default TES4:Oblivion + SecuROM, any workarounds?

    Hello fellow DT users. I just recently bought The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game Of The Year Edition...(that's a mouthful) And figured I could take my laptop and an Image of the disks with me on my trip... turns out not. Seems that they had decided to reward their faithful patrons with disks protected by SecuROM. (out of the goodness of their hearts I'm sure...)

    I was in a rush when I left so I didn't test it beforehand. The images are absolutely superb, however, it seems that SecuROM has found a new way to torment publishers' patrons!

    I have tried Alcohol 120%, DT Lite v4.x (newest), DT Lite v4.x (newest) + Y.A.S.U But to no avail...

    Is there any way to get around the overbearing presence of the ever hated SecuROM hell spawn?!

    P.S. Great job so far DT Dev's I've been a long time user, and have loved it every step of the way. Thanks to anyone who can supply me with any assistance.

    You should tell us which exactly error you get from SecuROM.

    The game itself isnt protected by Securom only the installer. Game uses only a DVD-check. It should work with DT + YASU.
    You have to cloak the device before you mount the image and install the game. Also be sure you have YASU in your DT folder.
    After installation you should only need to mount image to play game since it only does a DVD-check.

    No, I'm pretty sure the GOTY edition is protected by SecuROM. It was the original release of Oblivion that had no copy protection on it, save for the CD/DVD check. Nice "treat" for those who bought their re-release if you ask me.

    Hmm, are you sure , because i am almost certain that only the installers on both discs are protected by Securom and the game itself still uses only DVD-check.

    I think so too, since it's actually the same game as the original release. AFAIK there are no seperate patches for the original release and the GOTY edition, so they can not use different protections.

    Unglücklich Sorry I lost my net for a couple days.

    Here's the error it gives me, and the message it gives me on the link.

    The error pop-up:
    "Conflict with Emulation Software detected.
    Please have a look at http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=emu&c=13000
    for further, more detailed information."

    The link:

    SecuROM has determined that you are trying to start the application with an image of the original disc. Please be informed that SecuROM protected applications will not work with an emulated image of the original disc.

    * Please unmount your image and insert the original disc in order to start the application.

    If the application still won't start, please send a SecuROM analysis file to support@securom.com (see Support Info section on how to prepare and send an analysis file).

    I have SecuROM emulation enabled on DT, and Y.A.S.U is running on the scsi drive. I noticed that it checks my Physical Drive when it tries to load the Virtual one, This is a laptop so I can remove the Physical drive. Would doing so help at all?

    Sometimes there is a few hours of a delay ; nothing is moderated at all for users with 20+ posts
