ROM designed to run exclusively on real hardware

Post by Nacho » Mon Jan 05, 2015 2:42 pm

Hello!

I remember reading somewhere (perhaps in Hacktarux's thread on emutalk?) something about a rom that would only boot on real hardware. When running on emulator, it will display a "pwned" message.

Does anybody too remember this? Would CEN64 be able to run something like that?

Also, can somebody provide a link? :P
Testing CEN64 on: Intel Core i5 520M 2.4 GHz. SSE2 SSE3 SSE4.1 SSE4.2 SSSE3, but no AVX. Ubuntu Linux

Yes! I remember the rooster at the roof :P

I wonder what kind of checks it does to tell the emulators and the real hardware apart.

For a while, CEN64 tricked 64drive menu ROM into thinking it was the actual hardware. :D Then marshallh patched it.

This test fails in every emulator, whatever it is.

I know you have a 64Drive MarathonMan.Could you test it out? If possible could you take a picture as well?

picture of what? of the MGC 2011 demo? There's already a link of a youtube video.

If you mean a picture of the 64drive menu, there you have another video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYnJmnKtTsI
