My copies of Hellfire Attack, The Plague and Garrison II for example, won't work as CT RAW images as they can't generate working protection tracks, so not all protections/formats can be represented in a CT RAW image!

There is no other protection. And once you check how the protection has been implemented it's quite clear that the coder didn't really have an idea how proper protections work.

Lol, i'm sure there are some very stern looks in your direction right now
No offense intended, I just thought it could be a good idea to have some kind of spoof protection that even has debug symbols in it and hide the real one but that's probably not the case here
