For those Half-Life 2 Retail owners wanting to make a backup
    #3454852 - 12/06/04 03:19 PM (12 years, 7 days ago)

If anyone purchased Half-Life 2 and wants to make a backup copy of the game it is possible.

As you know Vivendi uses the new SecuRom protection ..

Download Alcohol 120% and put the CD in the drive and click on Image Making Wizard.

You want to select the SecuRom *NEW profile and make it an MDS image.
Enable DPM (Data Positioning Measurement).

Click next and it will ask you what speed you want DPM to measure at. Select 1x and click OK. Slower the better when it comes to protection.

After your image is completed you will see it in the list. Select the image file and click the Image Burning Wizard.

Again select the SecuRom *NEW profile and check off "Burn RMPS to recordable media."

Select 8X for the writing speed just to be safe and click on Start.

You now have a working Half-Life 2 back-up disc. This has worked for me so far and I have played the game all the way through. :smile:

a steam rip release has been out since november 20th, a retail 5 cd rip with offline installer since november 29th, and a retail dvd rip since december 1. You don't have to buy the game.
