EA Releases Tool To Bypass SecuROM Limitations
Publisher Electronic Arts has released a De-Authorization Management Tool for PC gamers afflicted with one of its many catalog titles packaged with SecuROM for digital rights management. This is for you, disgruntled Mass Effect owner.
With the EA De-Authorization Management Tool, you can now do sane things like reformat your hard drive and install new video game hardware without the same level of hassle (or using up one of your handful of permitted activations). Simply de-authorize your installed PC game, then install the game on another machine, without wasting those previous software activations.
This applies to games like Mass Effect, Dead Space and even your copy of The Sims 2 IKEA Home Stuff expansion—any EA published PC game released after May 2008.
For the full list of applicable games, read on.
* Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
* Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
* Crysis Warhead
* Dead Space
* FiFA Manager 09
* FIFA Soccer 09
* Littlest Pet Shop
* The Lord of the Rings: Conquest
* Mass Effect
* Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
* Mirror's Edge
* Need for Speed: Undercover
* NHL 09
* Spore Creature Creator
* The Sims 2: Apartment Life
* The Sims 2 IKEA Home Stuff
* The Sims 2 Mansion & Garden Stuff

(this is not new news, i have posted this due to EA ruining their games with the securom system, to be honest, my personal opinion is that they shold scrap it, because it does not stop piracy and only makes it a worse experience for people who acctully go out and buy the game offically, i know i am going to have o at least re-buy about another 4 games soon due t securom which will cost me about over 100 pounds, thanks alot securom!!!)

Re: EA Releases Tool To Bypass SecuROM Limitations
It will be interesting to hear how new games such as Settlers 7 which have adopted a policy which requires you to connect to the internet to in order to play. This has annoyed people who unwittingly bought the game to play on their travels. Of course they didn't realize the game required an active internet connection when they bought it.
Please remember to comment, it helps to encourage modders with their work.
