Thread: blacklisting of D-Tools

  1. #1

    Default blacklisting of D-Tools

    Hey... I just read what CopyTrooper posted here:
    > In previous versions the Daemon Tools controller was named "Virtual
    > Daemon SCSI Controller" but some suckers of copy protection
    > developers decided to blacklist all devices connected to the "Virtual
    > Daemon SCSI Controller" so the name is changed from version to
    > version in a combination of letters and numbers - no chance for

    > this idiotic blacklisting stuff

    Can't you just name the controller randomly? E.g. run a shuffle name generator on installation and name it that way? That would make it impossible to blacklist D-Tools just by the controller name...

    Dunno if this is possible, it just came to my mind when reading CopyTrooper's post...

    No, isn't possible, this can cause many trouble with update/remove-option.

    We are not that stupid :twisted: discussed this random controller name generation months ago but as Locutus already said: Impossible mission :roll:

    good point... well, if you've already discussed that I don't think there was much I could contribute to your ideas.

    Thanks for the answers nonetheless...
