Does DVD version of Trine come with copy protection software?

Some versions do, some don't. However, patch 1.06 removed all copy protections from retail versions, so even if it would have one, it will be removed once you install the newest patch (which is 1.07 atm, found at http://trine-thegame.com/site/index.php?page=patches ).

It is my understanding that copy protection, if any, is within the trine.exe. The patch rewrites the .exe with new one, so that should remove any existance of copy protection as well.

However, I know some copy protections do screw up your machine for good, but as far as I know none of Trine versions use such copy protection systems.

I hope Joel can provide a more detailed answer once he's again reading this forum.

After the patch the game won't use any disc checks etc so there is no copy-protection in the European or North American retail versions of the game (and some others as well). However, the patch does not apply to all retail versions of the game - at least Russian and Japanese still contain copy-protection.

I hope this helps.

That is good to hear. It seems one of the worst, if not The Worst, case is StarForce. When several games using it are installed at once, some of the games might not work. Might be becouse of different versions of StarForce that may overwrite each others... or something like that.
