I bought KOTOR from EB and installed it. Every time i tried to get into the game it would not start and would sometimes say a message like "unable to authenticate disc within timelimit" or "Conflict with Disc Emulator Software detected. See www.securom.com/emulation for more details" I did go the website and did the analisys test and sent it off with an email to the support guys. the reply came with a new exe file and now it gets into the game but crashes straight away. the game did start up good twice but crashed after i made my character and clicked play. plz help i need it!

Is your game fully patched after installing the new .exe file from that support site? This is the first time I've ever heard of secure rom. Is it part of your cdrom manufacturer?

Check here, for the official word. Has details on your error that you might find helpful. http://yodashelpdesk.lucasarts.com/faq.asp?sid=204717060202203161072046&pid=1387&pnm=Star%20Wars%A9:%20Knights%20of%20the%20Old%20Republic%20%A9&seid=3674&pos=Windows%20XP&top=Error%20Messages&rid=21430

Securerom is the auth system by which your original game cd's are protected. Certain emulation apps e.g. any app that emulates a cdrom drive on your system will trigger the securerom protection codes. As for the game not updating with the latest patch, you might have to uninstall and reinstall then patch it before using any new exe file. The patch checks for the original game exe and if it returns false it won't continue. It checks for paremeters as in exe file size etc. So, if you have any save games you wish to keep move them and then uninstall the game then reinstall it from scratch. Patch it and then try the new exe. Also shut down any emulation software you might be running before an attempt to play it.

Just bypass the security system. But i'm not telling you how. ;)

Craking Securom is easy.

Download rad video game tools and watch the movies externally. Never heard of movies not playing.
