Note: I’ll crack it when I feel like it and if I feel like it, if at all. Plus, if I am motivated enough to deal with Exzap’s constant DRM changes each single version, and not feel that cracking each successive version is turning into a mindless boring job.
SHA-1 of Cemu.exe:
Used a more thorough and shotgun approach this time, to make it easier for noobs to deal with.
Seems there was the usual bag of crap. Plus some new stuff. Like….
Protection triggers inside HLE handlers.
I find it odd they didn’t amp it up to eleven, but without saying much, doing more could eat HLE handler performance… Ew.
I did it this way just for mental masturbation, since thats how you get better at RE, by pushing yourself in how you do things and what you do. I have zero interest in Cemu as a emulator, and people I know know how I feel about the Cemu team’s “ethics”.
Apparently someone on Discord tried Zelda and it works? All I did was boot the usual suspect MK8 to see if it runs.
EDIT: Updated to 1.7.4.b
EDIT2: Updated to 1.7.4c. You will need to use the files in the zip for this rls, especially settings.bin (but feel free to change your settings), serial.bin and Cemu.exe. They seemed to have upped the security for the DRM it seems.
Credit to AceofZeroz for supplying the original uncracked thing and the idea.
Added a special serial.bin for use for this version:
EDIT3: Had a quick look at 1.7.4d, seems its changed a fair bit, yet again. Instead of triggers in GX2 HLE functions, there was a unknown at this point slowdown whenever a cracked version is used, just like when the interpreter is used. Which I admit is proving a great pain to debug. Exzap is finally doing a good job with the DRM it seems.
