    can you see it? [​IMG]
    "do not make illegal copies of this disc"
    it made me think when i wanted to put it in my KREON drive, for about 2 secs, now it's ripping [​IMG]
    it's very effective [​IMG]

    That's on my copies of Age of Empire II. It's on all the old Microsoft PC game discs.

    I can see the hackers needing a couple of months to bypass this protection.

    Oh shi-

    We're fucked. I hope Nintendo doesn't start using that type of protection too...

    Like said, it's been for years on all MS discs (and others)
