Copy Protections



In this page you will find the answers to all the copy protection answers in the whole Ultima series. I compiled this information on Thursday 29th August 2002, for the comfort of those who have legal copies of the games and either misplaced their copy protection answers or whatever. I understand that these answers are legal, because they can be found on Origin's own website.

  1. Natreg Dragon provided most of the Serpent Isle copy protection questions and answers above.
  2. Crowley added the first Serpent Isle question and answer, which was missing from other copy protection question lists.
  3. Artaxerxes originally pointed out that the last two Serpent Isle copy protection questions are never asked. This led to a discussion about Thoxa's questions in June 2004, wherein Gallara discovered that the last two questions are only asked if Silver Seed is not installed; and on the other hand, the first question (the one added by Crowley) is only asked if Silver Seed is installed.
