If it's just a disc check they left on the game I can put it in Inert.

Edit: I should clarify: As long as it's a disc check that doesn't actually check/install anything I can add it to Inert. If it actually checks the game integrity or something like that it has to stay where it is, but I can add a note explaining what it's really doing.
I'm not sure how to check that... Ideas?

Oh, looks like it just has a CD key check then?

Dumb question just for closure: Does it actually ask for a CD key in-game or during the installation process? Just checking before I fix it on the list.

Nothing. Just goes straight to the game just like a regular "bought from Steam" game does. No questions asked.

Really? That's... weird? I wonder if it has to do with the BattlEye anticheat or something.

Updated.

Updated.
I think CP has been removed, but I am thinking that ProtectionID might need updating too (6.4.0 is so last year ) - referring to the "or is using an unknown protection" in the log. FADE would be pointless with an electronically distributed product anyway I guess.

Other than that, I can only offer this link for interest's sake only.

Looking at the BI site for ARMA-2 suggests that those who have legitimate installs would have had DRM removed with patch v1.05. The actual line reads: "DRM free for users of legitimate installs" in the "Version 1.05 Highlights" section.

Seeing as Steam is up to v1.09, I would assume that DRM has actually been removed from Steam distributions.

Ah, now that's MUCH more conclusive. Wonder why the BI guy here earlier didn't link to this?

Updating to add link.

ARMA had SecuROM? Huh, didn't even know that.

I'll add those three to Removed right now.

Edit: Updated.

This might sound like a weird request, but can someone with ProtectionID installed run it on Portal 2?

Call me crazy but a big part of sales is pandering to your potential customer base and not shrugging them off.
