Hi to all!

I'm trying to find out which kind of DRM the following games came with. Can anybody share some knowledge on this?

I'm looking for the UK retail editions (unless stated otherwise):

Art Of Murder: Hunt For The Puppeteer
Art of Murder 3: Cards Of Destiny
Bad Mojo Redux (UK and US retail editions)
Baron Wittard
Chronicles of Mystery: The Tree of Life
Evil Days Of Luckless John
Everlight (UK and US retail editions)
Jekyll & Hyde (UK and US retail editions)
Lucius
Rhiannon: Curse Of The Four Branches (UK and US retail editions)
The Secrets of Da Vinci: The Forbidden Manuscript
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes
Undercover: Operation Wintersun

So far, I've discovered that the German release of Undercover: Operation Wintersun has Securom, the German release of Jekyll & Hyde has ProtectDisc, which doesn't interest me much, mainly because they are German releases.

I try to use this site (http://forum.daemon-tools.cc/gamedb.php?letter=all) for searching for DRM info. Anybody knows about other places I should also check out?

Thanks to all!

As far as I know, all the Art of Murder and Chronicles of Mystery game use their own type of copy "protection," referred to as "DVD checks" at a well-known NoCD website.

I don't think Baron Wittard required the disc in the drive after installing, which would mean no DRM.

The UK version of Bad Mojo Redux may have had "CD checks."

Everlight used SecuROM v7.38.0006.

Jekyll and Hyde used ProtectDisc v9

Evil Days of Luckless John had TAGES v5.5.2.1

Lucius had no DRM, unless you get the Steam version.

Rhiannon had some sort of DVD check, though not one of the commercial ones.

Secrets of Da Vinci used TAGES

Testament of Sherlock Holmes uses some form of online activation, apparently the online version of StarForce (not disc-based)

The UK version of Operation Wintersun used SecuROM v7. I can't remember whether I needed the DVD in the drive with the US version.

You can find most of these by doing a search for the name of the game and NoCD.
