Sorry if there is another topic about this, I couldn't find it, and sorry for the bad english.
I want to protect my game from piracy. I don't intend to make it hack proof, there is no such thing, i just want to make it hard for the normal user to copy my game and give it to friends.
There's the idea: Online registration, or by phone. Once it is registraded it will only run if the disk is in the tray. But i don't wanna use DRM.
So, what i need is: to protect the data that will be instaled, and protect the disk from copy.
What I'm really looking for are ideas on how to do this, or help finding a software that do this for me, or new ideas on how to do a simple protection on my game.
