Description

Hi!

Firstly, THX for that great project! :)
Secondly, I just tried scummvm with MI1 and 2 (CD
versions), that I had copied onto my HD and which used
to work perfectly.
The problem is, when I launch them with scummvm, I'm:
- asked for the disk in MI1;
- asked for the protection code in MI2.

Trouble is, my releases of MI are legal (I had them in
a french magazine, as a gift) and they never required
anything... :'(

Thx for helping ;)
Benjy.

If you start monkey2 with the flag -b10001, the copy
protection will be bypassed.
i.e.
scummvm -b10001 monkey2

ADDON: Thx for your help strigeus :)
ADDON2: I found the "bug" for MI1 => I just renamed
MONKEY1.000 and MONKEY1.001 to MONKEY.000 and MONKEY.001 ;)

BTW... strange thing: if you start Indy4 normally, you don't get the
copy protection, and if you start it with -b<anynumber> you get the
copy protection... :)

in indy4, i use another default value for the boot param.
(the value happens to be the value that bypasses the copy protection)
if you change that value, the protection will reappear.
