80. Re: EA Forum Ban Prevents Game Access? Mar 11, 2011, 16:12 ASeven

More news on the SecuRom issue.

"Bad investigation by "Reclaim Your Game". They saw the secuROM NAME, and presumed it was the same, (or a variation on the same) program. Not at all the case. Where, for example, are the notorius "hidden" directories that were at the heart of the secuROM issue in the first place?

That DA2 used a date-dependent release control mechanism, and some people don't like that, is one issue.

That the mechanism was developed by a(n in)famous DRM developer (Sony), is another.

But that the mechanism installed SOMETHING associated with itself in order to function does NOT mean secuROM, the program, was installed. Nor does it mean that anything like secuROM (in purpose or operation) is used in DA2.

But... "Hater's gonna Hate.""

RYM were the group that actually filed most of the Spore suits against EA, I believe. They do know what they're talking about and it's obvious Ea will go into public denial on the face of potentially very damaging lawsuits. And the time-mechanism should also be part of the EULA as per court order and isn't there since it can be argued to be DRM, so they are now admitting to breaking a court order? Oh man, people are going to get fired over this, definitely.

I'll wait until 3rd parties go through the code and confirm either side here.
