Secu ROM is a CD/DVD copy protection and digital rights management (DRM) product developed by Sony DADC.
Its purpose is to resist home media duplication devices, professional duplicators, and reverse engineering of software, primarily commercial computer games running under the Microsoft Windows platform.
While I am still interested in this topic, I have other interests too and I started spending more time with those and SCN updates began to slip, to the point that in December of 2012 I made the last updates to SCN and have not since. I thing a format chance of the whole site from static pages to a Word Press based article driven format could make it easier to keep everything updated - but I don't know Word Press well enough to do that.
So if anyone out there wants to help with that, let me know. You might not get news articles but people will post about new games, miniatures, rumors and much more.
Secu ROM limits the number of PCs activated at the same time from the same key.
The hero for the Academy Campaign is Zehir, the son of the late Arch-mage Cyrus and the new Arch-mage.
The limit was raised to five activations because an incorrect phone number had been printed on the manual, and because there were no call centers outside of the United States.
Separate activations were required for each user on the same machine.
Shortly after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft announced that games with Secu ROM DRM will not run on its new operating system.
Citing security concerns over the software due to the way in which it becomes "deeply embedded" in the system, Microsoft said "That’s where Windows 10 says, 'Sorry'." Supporting Secu ROM could have been a possible loophole for computer viruses to exploit." Purchasers of Bio Shock were required to activate the game online, and users who exceeded their permitted two activations would have to call to get their limit raised.
