King's Bounty Demo (Discouraging News)

Not about the gameplay, but about the copy protection.

Yes, copy protection on a demo. And apparently, it's "FrontLine ProActive," developed by the same scumbags who developed StarForce.

FLPA appears to be a different animal--there's no disc check, because it's specifically for Internet-distributed programs, there don't appear to be drivers installed on the system, etc. However, given the history of of the StarForce guys, it's fair to assume that they might not be, um, entirely forthcoming.

I installed the demo and didn't have any problems, but I don't trust them, either.
