Armadillo is pretty popular, I've noticed, but at $300, it's a bit overpriced IMO, particularly when you can get ASProtect for 1/3 of that. But how do they stack up? I know Plimus can automate Armadillo 2.x keys, whereas I'd have to supply a key list of my own with ASProtect, but that doesn't seem worth an extra $200 on it's own.
I also noticed pages with tutorials on cracking ASProtect were quite commonplace, whereas pages for cracking Armadillo are thin on the ground. However, the ASProtect tutes weren't particuarly recent.
Any thoughts and comparisons from people who have used both? I'm mainly interested in having a timed trial all taken care of in a wrapped exe, so I don't have to code it manually. It's a quick game that has taken a couple of weeks so far and I don't really want to double the dev time integrating and writing my own timed trial system.
