    Default Steel Beasts Pro!

    Hi Everybody, do you know if its possible to disable a dongle protection for a tank simulator called "Steel Beasts Professional" . This dongle is manufactured by "Codemeter".


    About Dongles

    Most dongles are small parallel port or USB plugs which consist of factory burned EPROM and a custom ASIC of sorts (on chip).

    The idea behind a dongle protection is the developer issuing checks against return values obtained from the dongle, either read directly from its memory or using some internal algorithm. Evidently these calling routines (the API) are the weakest link, although any decent hardware engineer could also peer inside and analyse what the dongle is doing. Virtually all dongle implementations can be broken without the need for the dongle, the software developers who use them usually aren't motivated enough to really invest the time reading the dongle manufacturer's API, they assume that because they are using a dongle that will be deterrent enough.

    Any information is appreciated about dongles or this game.

    Unfortunately, this is not what Daemon Tools is designed to do. You'll need to look elsewhere to find a way around this copy protection.
