Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield doesn’t launch with CD/DVD emulators installed

Sundog used our news submit to tell us that Ubisoft has released a patch for the game Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield. The update to version 1.5 does not only introduce updates to the game it also does no longer starts the game when CD/DVD emulation software such as DAEMON Tools and Alcohol 120% have been detected. It doesn't matter if you own the original CD or even if it's present in your CD player, the game simply doesn't start. The site EvilAvatar.com reports about it, also two forum threads (1,2) on the Ubisoft community forums mention this problem.From EvilAvatar.com:Ubisoft released the promised Rainbow Six 3 : Raven Shield 1.5 patch yesterday, but they failed to mention their new copy protection scheme.It turns out that Ubisoft implented code into the RVS 1.5 patch which checks PCs for ANY clone or virtual drive programs and then fails to launch the game if such devices or programs are found. What this has in turn done is disabled thousands of consumers who use programs like Daemon Tools, CloneCD or Alcohol 120% from playing their Ubisoft games even if they have their own physical cds in an actual drive Of course many users are dissapointed by this decision of Ubisoft. If you are one of them we'd suggest to post it to the Ubisoft forums, question also remains if DAEMON Tools and likes will introduce a patch that will circumvent this 'protection' from Ubisoft.
