Summary: Get Starforce copy protection working perfectly.
AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
ReportedBy: oliver_stieber at yahoo.co.uk
Starforce is becoming the dominant form of copy protection being used for new
games (and game demos!) but at the moment it doesn't work.
Startforce uses a dll called protect.dll the dll loads and performs some copy
protection tests it then installs a driver that takes over IDE CDRom support
Their are currently only two ways to defeat the copy protection on windows, 1:
modify the executable so that it no longer requires copy protection.
2: disable all cdrom drives and use a mini-iso-image for the game.
It should be possible to implement some of the features in protect.dll in Wine
without breaking the DMCA (e.g. replacing the driver)
