Honestly, I would have looked for them due to the reasons I already mentioned in my first post. Strange labels created in ReSource in the middle of some instruction in the protection routine which don't make sense (which are a result of the disguised checks if the code has been tampered with) are always suspicious. The protection in "The Settlers" f.e worked around exactly that problem by using a base offset outside the main executable (lea PROGSTART-SOME_VALUE,ax) so no strange labels were created.

No doubt about that!
