    Default Half Life 2 : Securom blacklist

    HL2 (box version) reports a "conflict with cd emulator", just like Tribes Vengeance.

    Looks like it is blacklisted :evil:

    Does the box version need the CD for verification? I can't really see the point of that, since it has to be verified on-line anyway. I've downloaded and paid it via Steam myself, so no such problem for me.

    Well i don't see the point too; maybe we should send a mail to Vivendi...
    Maybe they though "If you don't want to loose your trousers, just put girdle AND straps" :mrgreen:

    So how long do you think will it take till Deamon Tools will be released with SecuRom 5 "support"?
    Or are there any other CD/DVD-Emulators which don't get detected by HL2?

    everything you need is in there!
    Well.. yes and no.

    YES because the regedit trick works perfectly, just one click away from happiness.. ..

    NO because this trick has to be done manually after each reboot; and i coun't manage to write a script for this.. The post written by ShellShock using the REGINI tool does not work... i'll post something about that !

    You can use subinacl to script this.

    Create a batch file with the following command and put it in your startup dir.

    "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\subinacl" /keyreg "\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\Devicemap\SCSI\S CSI Port 2" /deny=administrators=r

    I'm using XP, but this should work on 2K. The " are important.
    You'll probably need to DL subinacl. It can be found here:

    This 'hack' seems to work for other securom games (like Battlefront), so this is definately goodness =)
