View Full Version : YASU has probably been blacklisted (again)

The game in question is Heroes Of Might And Magic V with latest 1.05 update installed. It gives "classic" Security module cannot... etc. error when YASu is activated. If I quit YASu and start the game using DVD everything works fine. Just wanted to let you know, I don't know if it can be fixed or not considering no other game uses this latest Securom version yet...

Scan game with ProtectionID.
Also use latest yasu (1.1.7035)

I already did it (version v5.2c from 12.02.2007) and it says simply Securom 7.xx or newer, it can't detect this version yet. And of course I've tested it with latest yasu so I think my assumption with blacklisting may be correct (unfortunately)...

There's already a new release of YASU, i'll release it as soon as i can confirm that it works with the new version of SecuROM.

You could try renaming yasu.exe, see if it still gives the same error?

new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 1.0000003 does the same thing


File Type : Exe, Size : 5727176 (05763C8h) Bytes
-> Suspicious MZ Header..
-> File has 5064 (013C8h) bytes of appended data starting at offset 0575000h
[!] SecuROM Detected - Version 7.xx


renaming of YASU.exe didn't solve the problem.


Please take a look at Testdrive Unlimited, too, as this just won't work with YASU .35 at all: "Emulation software detected"! (don't know why, as I didn't patch it - it seems as if it just bypasses the cloaking. Otherwise it would echo the "Security module cannot..."-thingy, wouldn't it?)


File Type : Exe, Size : 16302080 (0F8C000h) Bytes
-> Suspicious MZ Header..
[!] SecuROM Detected - Version 7.30.0015
[!] Possible CD/DVD-Check String -> CD-ROM drive

Stalker (not 1.3 - whooops - didnt see that) works without YASU and TDU works fine with YASU.


I guess you have other programs that are causing this (EZ play; ClonceCD, Virtual CloneDrive or and older Alcohol).

Seems like SecuROM checks for anything that has "Y.A.S.U" as program title. I changed 1 byte in YASU.exe (at offset 0x336A), changing the 'Y' from Y.A.S.U into a 'W'.
Now HoMM V with latest patch runs without any problems.

PS: I did this for testing purposes only and have no intention of spreading this modified YASU. So please don't PM me for it. As sYk0 already said, a new YASU version is coming soon which will fix this blacklist.

BTW: HoMM V also runs without YASU ;)

@shiFt: nope, no other programs are used on my gaming-machine

i thought yasu 1.1.7035 (or whatever the latest is) hid its title etc.. when cloaking was done - think syko told me that...

Works with AA 1.07 beta 5154 in the same way. ;-)

TDU (not patched) should run well with the current YASU,

Stalker S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 1.0000003 works without YASU, but if YASU is started, it blacklists it.
The hex patch by reef solves this.

Yes, the hex patch works well with both HOMAM V and STALKER. Let's wait and see if sYk0 comes with some more future-proof solution. Anyway, this latest blacklist effort by SONY is really pathetic. If it is the only way they could find to blacklist YASU it shows us how good YASU really is :) Thanks again, sYk0.

where is 0x336A located i opened Y.A.S.U in hex editor and searched for 0x336A no luck

0x336A is a position in the file...

Mephisto18m

where is line 15 in a 30 line document? Right, between line 14 and 16.

I'm sure he's always working on a new version. Just give him some time.

Mephisto18m

just patch the file (using WinHEX for example). It's easy and done in less then a minute.

..::shiFt::..
15.05.2007, 16:19
again: to play Stalker 1.0[...]3, you do NOT need YASU!

But if you start YASU, the securom code detects it, and refuse the game to start.

so just play without YASU!

0x336A find in tiny hexer but what value have i to change?

Mephisto18m
15.05.2007, 18:54
to speed this up, I'll write this in German. If anybody is interested, I'll write another howto in English later, when I have more time.

auf der rechten Seite des Hexeditors kannst du in der Zeile beginnend bei Offset 3360 "bçÿHø832wRY.A.S." als ANSI ASCII-Version der Hexdaten links lesen. Klick auf das Y und dann den Buchstaben, den du einsetzen möchtest oder gib links im nun markierten "59" einen anderen Wert ein (z.B. 58 für X). Speichere die Datei.
Fertig

hrhr very easy :D thx!

Can you please write it in English, because I need it sooner rather than later? I'm not as good at speaking German, as English, and I don't want to mess up YASU.

Chaosmaster

I hope Mephisto18m isn't annoyed if I do it for him? :)

on the right side of the hex editor you can read in the line at offset 3360 "bçÿHø832wRY.A.S." as ANSI ASCII-version of the Hex Data on the left side. Click on the Y and type in the letter you would like to have there or you type in another code on the left side where the "59" is marked (f.e. the 58 for zhe letter Z)
Then save the data and play ;)

(Sorry for my not so good english ;) )

Mephisto18m
16.05.2007, 15:17
thanks, saved me the time I'd had spent just now.
"f.e." isn't used in English though. Use "e.g." instead.

There will be a new YASU release very soon.

Mephisto18m
16.05.2007, 15:36
hush ;)

still good to know how you can do a self-made anti-blacklisting

Hanschke
16.05.2007, 15:37
benni u can make a spoiler?

Mephisto18m
16.05.2007, 15:50
I doubt sYk0 would like that.

Benni
16.05.2007, 16:07
I do not even like that myself. :-)
Just wait. Maybe I'm just kidding you, .. maybe not. :D
