    I thought it would be handy if we could have a list with all the anti-piracy protected games and fixes.
    Like final fantasy chrystal chronicles,dragon quest IV,GTA chinatown wars etc.

    Anyone know where one is?

    The ones I know of are:

    Final Fantasy CC
    Final Fantasy CC: RoF
    Chrono Trigger
    Dragon Quest IV
    Mario and Luigi 3 (requires special patch/firmware update, can not be bypassed by anti-anti-piracy mechanism on most flash cards)

    Grand Theft Auto does not have an anti-piracy check, it didn't work because of a save issue.

    Also wait for any Square Enix games to by protected... they are working to beat the pl breaking protections but they don't manage to do it...

    Why do they even bother anymore?

    They're just wasting time adding piracy checks. How long do these "protection" attempts last anyway? A day, an hour... a few minutes?

    No it doesn't. Like he said, it was because of a saving issue - a save file type that was different to usual... whether or not they implemented this to prevent piracy is unknown... though now I think about it..

    Right behind you
    Agree with CoconutCake above. All these piracy checks do is generate 100's of posts here until somebody finds a way to beat them a day or less later. They really should just stop trying.

    I'm sure DS2 will have nifty anti piracy stuff too, even though like the DSi will be broken preatty soon after release.

    This is one of the GTACW splash screens;

    Doesn't that imply that the game does, in fact, contain some manner of copy (anti-piracy) protection?

    From what I remember that's just the standard blurb that you'll find in the manual of any DS game.

    A lot of cards (the M3real, say) will update their firmware to automatically defeat the anti-piracy measures of specific games. That's probably why you didn't see it.
