Rex Nebular copy protection

Post by Ingsoc » Thu Apr 12, 2018 3:25 pm

I purchase the game from GOG and when I run it via ScummVM (but not Dosbox) I run into the copy protection screen, is there any possibility to turn it off like when I run it via Dosbox?

I double-checked, and you're right, it is disabled. Since ScummVM has a general policy of disabling copy protection for a game when there's a known commercial version that does likewise, I've modified the source accordingly. You should see the change in either the next daily build, or you can wait for the next release.
