Based Denuvo did it again. Why is this considered a bad thing again ?
>he wasnt around times of Starforce

>Companies can no longer cry pirates when their games sell shit
Oh I look forward to this dank new age.
I think that some chinks or russians will crack it eventually.
I remember when ACII came out with their always online DRM, the game had no crack for quite a while, until people from some russian Counter Strike community wrote a motherfucking server emulator for it.
It just needs to become large enough of a problem, where every major game uses it.
Good. Hopefully a large chunk of computing gets locked down completely and hacker culture gets revived.
You'll have to go free to be free.
I bought lords of the fallen and MGSV. Lords of the fallen has some issues, especially when you're outdoors; MGSV runs great, no different from Denuvo-less Ground Zeroes.
My PC isn't a toaster but it isn't very strong (processor AMD 3.2, Nvidia 660 TI)
Gosh DANG those FREAKIN GooberGumbys!!!! MAN they steam me up!!!
>they'll start shoehorning shitty written token female characters that is supposed to be the "main draw" and "heart" of their casts/characters
>if it sells badly, they'll just use her as a shield and cry misogyny
>There would be no piracy within 2 years
I doubt everygame in the past is gonna get Denuvo.
I also doubt that consoels that is now piratable and can be emulated getting denuvo.
>tfw I personaly know someone who has hacked it
>tfw hes just waiting for the right time to relaese it
Why not ? OP is right in that this denuvo trend should make people stop caring about shitty yearly release and instead appreciate the old gems in their backlog.
I still haven't even start playing pic related. Hopefully things will slow down soon so I can.
>Breaking even means you're losing your fucking business
Breaking even means you can exist for another project, losing money means that you're fucked.
SSD's are trash hardware anyway and you shouldn't buy them. They have a limited number of reading and writing processes until they break, wheras THEORETICALLY an HDD can last forever.
If I'm not mistaken Denuvo basically does something to check for integrity within the actual DRM system while the game is running.
>Breaking even means you can exist for another project, losing money means that you're fucked.
Yeah, you exist but you sure as shit can't fund bigger, better projects. I doubt devs love being stuck in a loop of making shitty games over and over again.
Look at Platinum. If they didn't have so many publishers sucking their cock with licensed games and shit, they'd have gone down under a long time ago. Breaking even is not a sustainable business practice. The point of a business in the first place is to create something and make a profit off of it.
>Intrusive DRM that reduces games performance and optimisation
Theres a reason people are avoiding these games that use this.
Take a look at the whole incident with Batman Arkham Knight,
>It was "proven" wrong by Denuvo basically saying nuh uh.
It was stated by Lord of the Fallen devs that it harms you HDD.
And by the way I'm retty sure that you'll be defending your product if it's harm you customers. Denuvo's devs ville never admit something that will make them lose money
It doesn't harm an HDD, how would it even do that?
Unless it somehow employs an extreme privilege escalation exploit that gives it direct hardware access, it can't actually damage an HDD.
What he is actually referring to is the claim, which so far is unfounded that Denuvo continually writes to SSDs, therefore wearing them out of solid state memory only has a finite number of writes.
Who cares, the golden age of console piracy has begun with the 3DS getting blown wide open, Wii U getting an exploit and the discovery that it uses the same keys as the 3DS, and PS4 getting Linux installed on it.
>he wasnt around times of Starforce
Neither were you, obviously. Accusation on starforce were never proved true. The lawsuit was dropped due to lack of evidence, nobody got the $1.000 for proving it did destroy optical drives.
>And yet nobody uses Starforce anymore.
Because it got bad reputation. Ubisoft removed it from their games under pressure from players, who believed all the bullshit around it.
Meanwhile steam bullshit has great reputation despite being shit, unsafe and invasive. Go figure...
i just googled & found that starforce took a year to crack
denuvo r the devs behind starforce
took a year to crack
longest denuvo protected a game was a few months
3dm arent even the best in the game...also a fuckin woman said pirscy will be dead in 2 years
99% denuvo will b forgotten coz by then it'll be cracked wide open
>They have a limited number of reading and writing processes until they break, wheras THEORETICALLY an HDD can last forever
they can't, theoretically or otherwise, you fucking mongoloid. they're mechanical, there is wear. they are inevitably going to break from usage or being exposed to the environment. they even rate how long hdds will last on average just like they do with flash ram
>DENUVO pays million to pirate group to make a tweets
>everyone think its genuine
everything is lies, denuvo is powerfull because they paying certain pirategroup to slow their cracking to make it appear uncrackable
>praising denuvo in any fucking way
>small ass company
>all their work and approach on this protection could be revealed in no time by hackers
>no piracy in 2 years
DRM is the worst shit that happened to games.
I understand if you use this protection on some software that is business related but video games ?
Companies actually pay a third party to protect their content because of fear.
Games run worse and use more recources, consumers are annoyed as fuck and refund their game.
Sometimes even forced to be always online, its all bullshit.
Denuvo got cracked on both 32 and 64bit version since the first game that used it came out.
There is no magic behind the protection its always will be possible to crack it, only a matter of time and focus from the scene members.
The witcher 3 didnt had any DRM and sold more than any game in 2015, guess how many times it got pirated ?
Cant remember one single protection that lasted for so long that it became relevant.
I'm convinced DRM is some carnival style sideshow to appease shareholders just so producers and devs can say their doing something about piracy regardless of how effective it actually is.
>they're mechanical, there is wear
Yes, but far less than there is on SSDs.
>they are inevitably going to break from usage or being exposed to the environment
Here's the thing.
The discs are near indestructible, as long as you're not actively trying to destroy them.
The stylus and the other parts might break, but they are replaceable.
low bait thread again
the most problematic thing about cracking is not denuvo it is that the debuggers for x64 code are currently in shit state and need forever and create even more junk code thats all
>also taking statements as facts
typical yellow press stuff
and also the sign of beinf mentally challenged
>the most problematic thing about cracking is not denuvo it is that the debuggers for x64 code are currently in shit state and need forever and create even more junk code thats all
If I was making a copy protection, I'd look for bugs in analysis tools and make sure my system crashes them all.
i think you should read up on how SSDs have progressed because there is absolutely no possible way you're reaching your SSDS write limit before a HDD will inevitably fail, you'd have to write well over 200 terabytes per year (580 gigs per day) for 10 years to get a modern SSD to fail
your SSD will not fail due to reaching its write limit unless you're specifically writing terabytes of data per day, this is not how normal people use their hard drives so telling random people that their SSD will fail because of a write limit is nonsense, it will not happen.
I'm going to screencap your post, then pirate a game in two years and make a thread calling you a faggot.
Chill your buttblast. We know you must be tired from your journey from reddit but everyone's welcome here.
It also gives a reason to instill more consumer ability-limiting control and potential spyware to be used for further exploitation and transacting in the future.
Which of course they'll simplify and re-name to sound appeasing to most consumers, despite the hard disk damage, no mods or offline allowed, optimization/performance issues, general invasiveness, etc.
