Download sd4hide.exe and how to play games with it

Posted on Friday, Dec 09 2005 @ 16:05 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
SafeDisc 4 Hider 1.0, aka sd4hide or sd4hide.exe, is a program developed by Skull.

You can use it to play with legal images (backups stored on your hard drive) of your games. It helps you to circumvent the SafeDisc 4 protection which prevents you from playing with backups.

SD4Hide is used in combination with Daemon Tools, although it's may work with other tools too. Daemon Tools is a program which enables you to load images, or clones, of games (and other software) in virtual drives.

Instead of sd4hide.exe you can also use Anti-Blaxx but I prefer using sd4hide because it's a lot easier to use. But the advantage of Anti Blaxx is that it's compatible with other technologies such as SecuROM 4-7, Protect CD V5 and JoWood X-Protect.

Anyway, to play games with sd4hide you need to do the following:
  • Mount the image in Daemon Tools
  • Run sd4hide.exe
  • Press "Hide", sd4hide makes a small adjustment to a Windows registry setting and now you can play. The program also saves a small backup to restore the registry setting.
  • After playing click on "Restore" and close sd4hide.
  • It's quite simple to use, but in order to run it you'll need Administrator rights on your computer. Otherwise it may not work.

    Download: sd4hide.exe (159KB).
