Re: Anyone with the game 1NSANE ...
1nsane doesn't use peer-to-peer online code, it calls into a server run by Codemasters, which does a CD check for a unique code. In other words, a bootleg version of the game can't be played online.
Another popular way for companies to nip bootlegged software is to release a patch right after it comes out that can't be applied to a hacked EXE and then require that you use the patched verison to participate in online racing.
Of course anything that can be thrown up as a deterrent can be circumvented if you try hard enough [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
