Topic: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

I dumped Turok 2, but I'm unable to determine which SecuROM version is used, because the exe is apparently packed with Petite v1.3 and I'm unable to unpack it (I tried several tools).

If any of you knows how to unpack this piece of shit exe, plz do: http://vigi.dremora.com/Turok2.rar ..  or if there's a  different way of determining the SecuROM version, plz lemme know.

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

Except for CD-Check, Turok 2 should be unprotected, although it seems to have SecuROM -> SECUROM folder roll

It also has 1 corrupt sector.. how do you explain that? tongue

The weird thing also is, the exe won't launch on xp unless I rename it from Turok2English.exe to Turok2.exe..

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

Is your disc EURO (multi4) ?
There are euro release, i believe it has English, French, Italian, Spanish. But yours could be English only!

I saw the corrupted sector!
Maybe your disc has the very first SecuROM "protection", which was also ineffective then big_smile

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

It's with 4 languages.. anyway, if your Turok 2 disc also has a securom folder, then shouldn't it also have a corrupt sector? (the dump entry says it doesn't)

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

I've noticed your TRACK01 has MODE1, but mine is MODE2, maybe that sector was also removed or not pressed in the German version, to be sure i will redump this disc once

Was you able to unpack the EXE ? If not try this -> Universal Extractor 1.6 setup.exe portable

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

The data track is mode1.. and your tool doesn't work.. I suppose the compression is part of the protection.. so unless someone can unpack it manually, we'll just have to assume that it doesn't have an active protection.

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

i got it somewhat unpacked with ollydbg

most likely it will not run properly, but text strings are readable at least.
there doesn't seem to be any references to securom though, but cdcheck is indeed present:
"Unable to find Turok2 CD, Verify CD is in drive and no other application is using CDROM Drive."
"Turok2 requires a CDROM Drive to run!"

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

Thanks. Protection ID also can't find anything in that .exe, so let's just conclude that there's no active SecuROM protection.

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

I've added a comment for that.

Do you wanna add the other 3 languages to your dump?

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

Languages added.. but let's not add any comments because it's irrelevant info (the exe's don't even contain securom)

Re: [DONE] Need help identifying SecuROM version

okay, but i think it could be useful because of existing SECUROM folder and sector
