#35 closed defect (invalid)

copy-protection shows in cd ver of mi2

I have the cd-version of MI2, and when I play the game in dos/win I'm never bothered with a copy-protection. Neither was I with version 0.0.2 of scummvm, but with the cvs-version as of Sat Nov 10 20:40:12GMT, I am suddenly asked to fill in in the copy-protection. If there shipped a book with passwords with the cd-version I have lost it a long time ago though...

In the previous versions, there was a hack which disabled the copy protection. In the current version, that hack was removed. According to the DMCA, it's illegal to break copy protections.

Hmm, I see. Wonder why it never shows up in the dos version though.

Also, the copy-protection doesn't show in Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, for which I still have the codes, since I was always asked for them when I played it in dos.

The copy-protection doesn't show in the cd version of monkey1 or dott either, (though I don't know if it should/is there). It does show in samnmax.
