in a rather humerous way: Link

He enabled an intentional error which causes the game to crash with the error "Unable to shade polygons" if and only if the user is running a pirated version of the game. He plays it off like it's a bug and asks if anyone is having problems.

Lo and behold, all the pirates go "omg not working" and are quickly banned from forums and some from Steam.

Yup.

The error happened ot me, though I bought it through Steam. He told me it was because I hadn't updated in a long time, and jsut to update, so I did. No more error on my end. ^_^

Interesting, but they have to be careful like this as a protection can fail for a number of reasons even with legit versions.

This wasn't meant for a long term solution. It was more for the devloper's amusement.

People pirate games that cost less than 10euro? That's quite embarrassing.

Trust is a fragile thing. Once trust is lost, it can be impossible to recover. Those we're closest to can betray us,and total strangers can come to our rescue. In the end, most people decide to trust only themselves. It really is the simplest way to keep from getting burned.

Yeah and the biggest excuse they use for grabbing warez releases is "It costs too much", but yet they would steal things that are cheap games and apps. I wonder how many didn't buy WinRAR or Winzip for example.

Kind of a moot point... both those programs have free versions that do more than most people need them to anyhow.

But I agree. Sometimes I feel the #1 reason for piracy is stupid pricing. $60 for black ops? Geez. Might as well charge my first born to fill my car with gas. Once.
