What happens once someone figures out where this file is located and simply packages it with the trainer to the torrent sites after validated?

We also wanted to avoid having to authenticate or send any information to us so that we don't have any privacy issues.

Finding the file is not the problem, if the contents are encrypted, but if he keeps resetting the clock to the same day, that is, so I take back my idea.

Hmmm, what if the trainer writes a log... every start, and exit... and if one of the entries suggests, that there has been a timewarp... well, some consequence comes here ... :P

Eventually, I think we have to keep in mind, that we are going against the average user. If a cracker really wants to distribute this thing, he will.

In thinking about this debate, please keep the following in mind:

1. This authenticity check is ONLY for the personalized trainers downloaded during the period before the public release date. Trainers can be downloaded with ALL protections removed after the public release date. If we can get these leaks under control, we can begin shortening the release date windows.

2. If we cannot come up with a good way to reduce leaks, we're left with only three options: 1) We release fewer and fewer trainers as we can't afford the programming costs involved in releasing, updating and supporting 40-50 new trainers each month. 2) We eliminate the public releases and keep all trainers for UNL members only indefinitely. 3) We double or triple the membership fees so that we can make enough to cover the costs of the leaks. None of these sound particularly appealing to me as we always have and want to continue to offer as much quality work as we can and at a fair price. We also want people that truly cannot afford to pay to be able to use the trainers, even if it is a few weeks after the initial release.

We're certainly open to other suggestions if you're opposed to this new authenticity check.

I personally am not against this auth. check at all. But people, who might lose internet for a few hours, should be able to use it, if we can figure out a way, to make the auth last a day. If not, than not. However, I really would like the feature, of self update, if we are already going online... also, if the free version is available, than update to that.

Also, we might want to consider a poll, or vote, about what changes are acceptable to people the most.

Hello there,

Soooo if I understand well, if I'm playing AC at home on my PC and I don't have inernet I won't be able to play ? That's a shame since I don't have internet at home 24H/24H 7d/7d, and even when I have it, all the ports are blocked and the bandwith is freaking limited (thanks dad ! freakin network admin that controls everything ).

So ... I'm fu**ed up ?

By the way, I have nothing against this kind of protection, and anyway I'll play the game without for my first walktrought, but a way to activate the trainer for the PC that uses it could be a way to protect your interest.

Or maybe i'm just crazy

if you had internet connection to download the trainer itself, then you have enough internet connection to run the trainer successfully-

best,
Cal
