Carlos words regarding copy protection:

well i'am not a lawyer, so i guess i was probably wrong about
copyprotection being illegal after all.

Zsolt, could you give us a status of your safedisc patch ?
does it work with all winver versions or is this one limited to nt40 ?
( most games do not run in nt40 mode )
is it safedisc 1.x only or safedisc 2.x as well.

anyway, any work on copyprotection is very very usefull for everbody.
so please impent everything you have.
