Earthbound’s Anti-Piracy Stuff is Showcased

There are a few tiny facts off in the article, but I can understand why they were made – in my original article here I didn’t mention that each start-up check will keep the game from functioning, and the other, more interesting things only happen if a pirate were clever enough to peel away the earlier checks.

I think some more stuff might’ve been found since I first posted that info a few years ago, but I can’t recall any of it right now. Probably just some more simple checks though. Anyway, if you haven’t seen it already, here’s what happens if a super-duper pirate managed to break through all the anti-piracy protection and played through to the end.

Re: Earthbound’s Anti-Piracy Stuff is Showcased

Wow! They really pulled out all the stops didn't they.

I remember reading an article a few years ago about one of the Spyro games having a check to see if your PS1 had been modded or not and not running if it is. I found that to be really evil because if you had a legit copy of the game it still did it.

Re: Earthbound’s Anti-Piracy Stuff is Showcased

DQ 5 on the DS has a really evil one. The game starts out on a boat, the captain keeps telling you that you'll be arriving soon, I talked to everyone 10 times, and spent about 45 minutes before I went to google up what to do. Turns out the anti piracy makes it so the boat never arrives to it's destination.

Well played Level-5.
