News Comments > Garry's Mod vs Pirates

Worked on a game; we put in several subtly broken feature that we knew pirates would miss when they generated cracked copies of the game. The game still ran, but you'd hit a non-progression bug after some regular gameplay.

On release day, ~20-30% of our tech forum issues were about the broken features that would only show up in cracked versions. Not only did these people not buy our game, they felt justified in asking the developers, directly, to spend time helping them fix their pirated software.


This reminds me of the FADE system Bohemia Interactive uses in their games (Operation Flashpoint, Arma, ...) where if they detect a pirated copy then the game over time will start to run really slow and wash out becoming unplayable.

I think the algorithm for detecting a pirated version activated a few times with legit copies, which is to be expected I guess. But, the few times this happens is pretty much negligible I'd think.

It would be nice if it were possible to construct a perfect algorithm for detecting pirates and when you do, format their drives. Muahaha! But that's not really possible and so non-pirates would be getting wiped out which would bring all kinds of hellfire on the devs then. Too bad b/c I'd love nothing more than to format an actual pirate's computer. Over and over again.

News Comments > PS3 Steam Details
11. Re: PS3 Steam Details Apr 13, 2011, 15:13 SirKnight
 
If Valve wants to give away their games for free that they have completely self funded then that's their choice. EA doesn't have jack to say about it. The only time EA would is if THEY funded the development of Portal 2.

For the most part I don't care about playing Portal 2 on the PS3, but since I get the PC version for free and I have Playstation Move which this game is compatible with I was curious to see how that works out so I thought what the hell and pre-ordered the PS3 version.

Cool. I look forward to my PS3 copy next week! Of course, I'm mainly going to play the PC version.

Well I pre-ordered the PS3 version so hopefully that'll come early too so I can play my free PC version sooner. The bad thing is I can't pre-load right now.

Or, you know, we just won't be buying EA games.

F graphics. I don't play games for the tech. I want good game play. I don't care if it looked like Doom. Good is good.

It's funny seeing people complain about a game not having the best graphics in the world yet when games do have it they complain about how they spent too much time on graphics and not enough on game play.

Whatever.

I'm going to be disappointed if the turd flinging ability is not in the real game. It's gross but made me LOL. Duke peeing on the turd in the toilet and seeing little bits of it roll off was awesome. haha

When this game finally comes out, it'll be 7 years in the making. 6 if you don't count the first year since they were working on "darkness" although the core tech was carried over.

Wow.

creative freedom blah blah blah. There is nothing creative about school shootings, rape, child prostitution, etc. I think it's pretty damn obvious where you stop. There's a line you just don't cross no matter what and anyone with more than 3 brain cells should know what this line is.

Removing this mod or any potential mod about the other things I mentioned is NOT censoring. Only a sick mind would think so. Period.

I tried IE9 and it's just as slow and overall crappy as I remember IE to be. Firefox owns IE so hard in so many ways.

Bah. I'd rather see RE return to it's roots and be less concerned about combat. The first three REs were just as much about solving puzzles as it was about killing zombies, if not more so.

RE5 looked nice, but it felt more like gears of war than RE.

On Steam, F1 2010 is half off. Is it worth $20?

They need to add the ability to save anywhere not just at lame checkpoints. Also the editor!!! Oh and more than 3 graphical options would be nice too. All of these the original Crysis had so wtf?

Game devs these days...sheesh.

I'm most concerned about them steering away from the original's sim roots. It just makes no sense to do this. OFP fans expect a hardcore sim, not CoD or some BS crap like that. If that's what they want to make then they can just do it and call the game something else.

Who's ever decision it is to take the game's sim history away needs to be kicked in the bags.

I can say straight up that I will not be fooled again like I was with Dragon Rising. Chance of me buying this crap = 0%.

The gaming industry is being taken over by complete idiots.

They should use the Quake 1 engine. Old School software rendering FTW! It would be cheaper to license too.

Dead wrong. Corruption at its finest. I said it before, they need more than a ban. They need Homeland Security to come knocking on their doors for hacking into systems they have no business hacking into. Technically, they are not hacking into systems, or are they? If they are using code that effects my system as well (the hack), isn't that hacking my system? Time to take off the gloves, call the FBI on the IPs...let them track this crap down. Sometimes all it takes is a little spankage...


I'd rather the FBI focus on something important, thank you...

Like software piracy!


Or aliens, government conspiracies and monsters!
