Why Securom 7 prevent my game to launch more than 3 times ?

Post by Dadu042 » Wed May 08, 2019 1:37 pm

I'm facing a strange issue with the game Battlestations: Midway (DVD, v1.1.1 preinstalled):

The game does launch for 3 times (I adjust the screen settings), but the 4rd time the DRM block because it don't see the DVD: "Error. Please insert ... CD in the drive."

I use Wine 4.1, and I have only installed "winetricks d3dx9".
I do not install DirectX 9c from the DVD nor GameSpy (it's a updater).
According pcgamingwiki.com/wiki, the DRM software is Securom 7.

The prefix I used:
export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-bsmidway

Same issue with adding a "nocd".

Any idea ?
