True, but unless the disk has obvious errors you wouldn't be anymore-the-wiser as to whether custom protections have been "preserved" or circumvented properly using copier dongles without a parameter for a particular game.

Just like extended ADFs and raw dumps, it's often trial-and-error as to whether a game will work when duplicated with a copier dongle using the nibbler software (as opposed to the parameter copy feature). There are a few threads that illustrate that quite nicely IMHO, for example:

Having said that, like Toni I'm struggling to see the usefulness of adding support for copier dongles to UAE. I think it would be more interesting just to see if Toni could do it than anything else.....which I'm sure he could, if people sent him all the various copier dongles available!
