What was the last game to use Rob Northen's Copylock?

My bet would be Chaos Engine 2 but I'm not sure. Anyone here who knows more?

Brian Lara's Cricket '96 or the final release of SWOS

Chaos Engine 2 is 1996 as well. This was a very lazy copylock BTW. Just a memory value changed somewhere.

Brian Lara's Cricket was released pretty late in 1996, much later than Chaos Engine 2.

So I guess that these games were also the last ones to use on-disk copy protection, weren't they? Or were there other games after those to use some kind of non-Copylock on-disk copy protection?

Championship Manager 2 was full MFM and was 1997.

Apano Sin was released in 2000, I believe that was full MFM too...

Apano Sin was indeed full MFM and one of the last games I "officially" cracked. Protection wasn't too bad at all.

Not too bad as in effective, or fairly easy to defeat?

Protection did its job, not really hard to crack but definitely time consuming.
