    Default Anti-Custom Firmware Games are coming

    http://endlessparadigm.com/forum/sho...d=17617&page=1
    The First Anti-Custom Firmware Game "Evangelion: Jo"

    The First Game that detects Custom Firmware is here!




    This time it's confirmed, there is at least one set that detects Custom Firmwares and displays it clearly in refusing to start. What is this game?

    The developers of the game Evangelion: Jo added to their game detector Custom Firmware.

    When you start the game a message will splash on the screen saying "that the system installed is not official and therefore the game will not start."

    Ok The game starts but it's not playable.

    If the rumors about a malicious cracker Rock Band are still subject to controversy, the game itself is really allergic to the presence of a Custom Firmware.

    Note that this is not the version number which raises concerns, but the method for detection (directly in RAM). Whether as a UMD or Rip version,

    the game hangs on this page with a soft classical music.



    If you spent more or less 48 euros (like us) to bring it from Japan, use a pandora kit to install an official firmware before you play.

    or install the Custom Firmware 5.02GEN-A proposes to reboot in official firmware without having to flash anything. Note that this option will

    be added to the next update to our 5.50GEN-A.

    or
    a way to boot to OFW(when running CFW, like in GEN) when you run the game

    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    I dont see this causing a problem for CF users for very long. They will probably come out with fixes for the games or perhaps an m33 update. Just my guess.

    hopefully it'll be bypassed soon.

    I'm sure there will be a bypass, it shouldn't be hard to figure out how it detects it and emulate an official firmware to trick the detection. Or couldn't people just remove it from the iso?

    The fact that it detects the ram contents itself concerns me but hopefully there will be a bypass

    Im 99% sure it wont last long. DA will find a fix for it and create an update. Either that or an ISO patcher will be released.

    You're all missing the idea. A single game isn't very problematic, but if every new game does this, each game must be cracked individually (unless all the devs are incredibly stupid and use the same detection routines).
    Probably only reliable method is something like TimeMachine.

    So now the people with CFW who were going to download it won't.

    And the people who with CFW who were going to buy it won't.

    Am I missing something?
    -PSP 1000 now running 5.50 GENb-2 (full)
    -DS Lite w/ EZFV

    I think its a good anti-piracy thing, but if you look at how much this could actually impact their sales, it aint gona make a difference, I wouldn't buy this game, let-alone copy it!(that could sound wrong, but I dont know what way to put it! maybe just say I wouldn't touch it?) There will hopefully be a patch and I hope there is a fw update from M33, its been long enough. But all this anti-piracy stuff goin on, I have my doubts about D.A making something to combat this.

    Cant get enough of LittleBigPlanet? Come to the LBP Forum!!!
