Combating R4 Piracy on the Nintendo DS, New Protection Used


Sponsored Links
293w ago - The CEO, Andrew Mclennan, of UK based Metaforic has lifted the lid slightly on a new method of protection for Nintendo DS games.

He noted that essentially the new protection will mean that each game is its own security system, and will take a very long time to hack.

The overall aim of the new protection is to make hacking a manual job and limit the chances of automating the hacking process.

To quote: Mclennan didn't claim that Metaforic's anti-piracy tech is 100 percent hack-proof, and acknowledged that eventually, hackers with enough brains, time and motivation eventually hack many forms of software security. But he hopes to make the hacking process as long and annoying as possible.

"What we're really trying to do is make hackers take on a long, slow, manual job," he said. By denying the hacker a way to automate the hacking process, this extends the amount of time that software products can sell legitimately, free of piracy.

"We add so much security to it that it will take a very long time to hack," he claimed.

Basically it's a device that allows you to run NDS homebrew/backups on it, to quote:
The R4/R4DS Cartridge is the current top-of-the-line in DS SLOT-1 flash carts. It is just an amazing little device like original DS cart size, it is a complete solution with no need to purchase any additional components or deal with any messy software and truly the easiest media enhancer you have ever done; To simply put it, this is a must have peripheral for any regular DS/DS lite owner.
