Thread: Starforce Solution Suggestion

  1. #1

    Default Starforce Solution Suggestion

    Why fight against Starforce Protection ?
    Why don't create a "Fake Starforce Driver" ?

    When you install a game with that protection, the game checks if you have the right version of Starforce installed.If you can create a Fake Starforce, in such way that the game BELIEVES that protection is installed, then, we can continue with the installation and try to play the game, i mean, the Fake Starforce has to tell the game, that everything is correct, when the protection try to do his job:
    1: disc validation
    2: code hooks that check via disc validation at certain triggers
    3: active online authorisation

    It's just a suggestion,

    i think it's nearly impossible to create a fake sf driver coz its kinda very complex and there are many dirs where u have to change stuff.
    so i don't think it will ever happen. lets hope on vIDE

    Afaik, starforce driver itself does almost nothing, it just check's if caller is valid starforce protect.dll and if it is, driver gives it ring0 privilegies. After obtaining privilegies protect.dll works with hardware itself. Protect.dll is unique for each application, so even if you can patch it, you will need to release patch for each update of every application.

    SFCURE is a anti starforce driver (Almost).
