    Default I have a few questions regarding DT4

    1. What will be the difference between DT4 and DT4 Pro?
    2. Will DT4/DT4 Pro will be able to handle SecuROM 7x?
    3. Can you please specify all the protections that DT4 will be able to deal with?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mark

    One thing I've found out by now, is that the Pro version will provide an IDE virtual drive (the current version, 3.47, uses SCSI).

    Securom 7 is trivial to circumvent, so I guess the non-Pro version will work.
    To contact me privately, pray. I might answer.

    Daemon Tools v4 will have the same features as Daemon Tools v3.47. However, it is rewritten from scratch, better protected against discovery (necessitating less blacklist fixes) and will support more copy protections than its predecessor. Additionally, you'll be able to toggle Auto Insert Notification with it.

    Daemon Tools Pro will have a full-fledged user interface, you will be able to create images with it and it will feature a plugin architecture. Planned plugins are a virtual IDE drive plugin, a CD/DVD-authoring plugin, support for encrypted images.

    SecuROM v7 will be supported, yes. I'm not going to list all supported copy protections because I don't know every single one of them, but you can expect support for all current major copy protections.

    Default DAEMON Tools v4 and DAEMON Tools Pro will support starforce

    DAEMON Tools v4 and DAEMON Tools Pro will support starforce. DAEMON Tools Pro will have extra features, such as supporting all kinds of plugins (NetSoerfer mentioned this earlier in the thread).

    ß, nobody would trick you and make you think support is coming if its not (at least I hope so).

    Daemon Tools v4 will support StarForce v3.x from the beginning.

    (I was going to highlight parts of the sentence, but then the whole sentence was written in bold so I decided not to. )

    superb.....


    i'd like to know something if possible...
    can it be determined from looking or examining an mds file (the one that contains the dpm) of a starforce protected game image if it is a good image. i mean that in the same way that with the securom curves if they are too disstorted they may not work. i mean i've seen some that look like a wave file, when a good one should be nice starigh curves with nice staright peaks (or whatever they are called)

    "Supporting StarForce" (or any copy protection for that matter) means that if you have a sufficiently precise image, you'll be able to play the game from that image without any further action (e.g. using SFNightmare etc.).

    The difference between virtual IDE- and virtual SCSI drives in a nutshell:

    The optical drives in your computer are most likely IDE drives, not SCSI. In the past, virtual drives (such as Daemon Tools' one) have always been SCSI. So at one point the developers of StarForce decided to block all SCSI devices if any IDE drives are available, thus blocking virtual drives if you have a normal CD drive.

    For Daemon Tools Pro, there will be a plugin that has a virtual drive that's not SCSI but IDE - and as a result immune to the above-mentioned check StarForce performs.

    If you want to know more about this, I suggest you use the board's search function.
