Russian firm improves game copy protection

Starforce Technologies will launch v3.0 of Starforce Professional, a CD authentication system, at the ECTS games show in London at the end of this month.

The new system will introduce a whole range of additional features to protect games from being cracked or illegally copied.

It said that the new version will allow games developers to control the physical parameters of CDs, and can so tell not only the licensed disks from illegally replicated copies, but also disks with the same title made from different glass masters.

The firm will also introduce a File Protection feature, intended to safeguard data files used games and other software developers, which lets some of the files be hidden.
