Thread: No way to emulate newest Laserlock (HellForces EV)?

  1. #1

    Default No way to emulate newest Laserlock (HellForces EV)?


    Is their a chance to make a working backup from the game HellForces EV which is protected with the newest version of Laserlock? I try to make an image with Alcohol 120% and the profil Laserlock and mounted it in virt. drive from Dt4.03. But he says Software protection error and he want the Original CD. Then I disconnected my IDE-drives and tryed again, but also no way. I burned a copy (oversize 704.4 MB) with Alcohol, it doesnґt work. I also tryed a sector by sector copy. Nothing work. It seems StarForce and Protect CD is a joke infact of these new Laserlock. Have anyone copied this game succsesfully? I thank everyone who have a hint for me what I could do to run the game with a backup.

    Sorry for the bad english, Iґm from germany!

    Have you tried burning it with Blindwrite? Maybe this one works.

    can you post a tree structure of the cd contents here ???
    do you know what i mean ?

    go to dos box and switch to your cd drive (maybe d:\) and type "dir /s /on >c:\tree.txt"
    then you should have a file named tree.txt in the root of your c drive. post it here.

    Have you tried creating an image with DPM? Maybe some new Laserlock version that requires DPM...

    but is there no hidden laserlock directory like older versions ?
    did you use attributes to show hidden files/directories ?

    are you sure it is using laserlock ?

    is this the same hellforces as from buka entertainment/orion ??
    and if yes what's the "EV" for ??
    because i have hellforces (in au) and it is not laserlock.

    Yes, i mean the english (EV) 2 CD version HellForces from buka entertainment/orion.

    The german version from publisher Frogster doesnґt have a copy protection and the violence is cutted extremly. Is the au version also cut and what copy protection is on your discs?

    And you are right, there is a hidden Laserlok directory on the play disc. The file in the directory is named Laserlok.out and have a size of 20.6 MB.

    DPM is a problem because of the many reading errors, but i'll try it! Thanks for the hints.

    Default directory listing with hidden folders and hidden files

    This is kind of off topic and perhaps academic (I don't want to take the discussion off Laserlock) but you can't get a proper directory listing of a CD with hidden folders and files without manually specifying the hidden folder name.

    If you do dir /s /ad you'll have hidden directories included but you won't see any hidden files. If you do dir /s /ah you'll see hidden files but you won't traverse into hidden directories. And if you combine /ad and /ah it won't work either because CMD will only use the last given switch.
