I choose option: Wait for working crack and then buy.

Rampant pc piracy? As opposed to rampant console and handheld piracy? At least for pc you need a crack, consoles only need a one time install of a chip. Handhelds can just be emulated without ever needing to purchase them, while pc needs new hardware.

Give me 5 minutes with google and I'm pretty sure I could find any console or handheld game.

It ****es me off that pc gets the bad rep when consoles aren't doing any better.

This kind of DRM's rather increase the amount of pirated copies of a game, to even buy and support these kind of DRM's, I quote a well known acronym "GTFO".

No that is BS.

More like it increases the number of noobian kids on forums who sit and complain and come up with weird amazing situations of when their conn will die or wont work. And the people who are moaning are the people who wont buy the game and are not happy being unable to play it for free.

But wait, people who actually have bought it have reported how unintrusive the DRM is and how its not that big a deal in terms of bandwith needed. Infact most who bought the game are happy about it in terms of the game and protection.

So to everyone stop crying about it, go buy it, you bunch of cheapskates and stop the fecking excuses. Or go get some cheese to go with your whine.

Infact ill go as far to say, CH has become more and more warez friendly every day, which in turn will hurt Chris if he shown to support it so much even if its not his actions, but the actions of mods and other people who leave the messages around the forum.

So much for the no talk about warez talk on the forums anywhere huh staff.

The game sucks, ubisoft sucks.

i was buy the fu**ig game 55 euros (original) and im trying to get it working from friday (Tech Support doesnt help me). the game tells me that i dont have an internet conection - i have a 24kbps adsl fully functional - , i disable the firewall, the last time i mess with the port triggering thing i took a virus inside my pc.

They want a computer engineer to make the fu**ing came simply run properly. idont have the time and i not intented to spend a lifetime with it, if they dont know how to deal with the piracy they must go HOME. its not my problem i was buy the "game" and the only game i play from friday is the action figure (by the way the only thing that worth of the game). this DRM thing is very smart think it protects the game from piracy and even for normal play. i think the man that make this DRM is briliant.

I can't copy the game (i dont) i can't play the game and i am the f***ing as*hole that spend 55euros (2 days of hard work) for this "GREAT" game.

Thank you ubisoft, you are the first company that make games unable to run.

P.S: and by the way i want to play the game to my laptop when i travel with ship evevery weekend

Anser: F*ck you, you stay home!!!

thanks for reading and sorry tone.

I have bought a few games. And one is still preorder. As everyone know there are regional prices. This game is 50€ in EU contries. However they do not understand that in some areas this price is outrageos. Some contries have minimum salery less than 200€ (Info taken from: livingingreece.gr/2008/04/04/minimum-monthly-salaries-of-eu-countries/). And if that is not all, some games are soo porly that doesn't even work.

For instances: Saboteur. Everybody does know that with ATI graphic cards doesn't work. I do not know how long will they need to officialy release a patch to correct issue. There is only awaible unoficial patch 1.03 beta. At least that patch doesn't freaze, but it is verry buggy.
Do you need another comparison? like game Prototype with very bad PC port.

I have bought all Sins of solar empires series, Sword of the stars series, Spore, Anno 1404, Galactic Civilization series and some others.

Are people "noobian" because they haven't got let's say a 100/100Mbit connection and connected to the net all the time?
I also think that people have the right to moan about a DRM that requires you to be connected to the net 24/7. In what way have this become more warez friendly?

I was going to buy Assassin's Creed 2 for the PC when it came out so I could use a CH trainer, but after finding out about this DRM bull**** I'm not going to. The thought of it feels too much like "Big Brother" in my opinion. It's kind of like having someone watching you all the time -you have nothing too hide, but it's still uncomfortable. Plus, I worry about Ubisoft's internet connection detecting CH's trainer and stopping me from playing. On top of that it seems wrong on principle to need internet access to play the game to begin with. Besides; I have a fast and reliable broadband connection, but as good as it is even it occasionally goes down completely for a short time. I shouldn't have to worry about my game stopping because of that and losing progress and restarting a mission. You can say what you want about how it's there to stop piracy, but all other reasons aside -it JUST feels wrong. I've never had any intention of stealing anything. The people who make a product should be paid for it. I have more that enough money to easy afford this game too, so I'd be happy to pay Ubisoft for AC2, however on the principle that this exessive method of DRM crosses the line I not only am NOT buying it, I am considering getting a pirated copy out of disgust.

Ok... Can I request that a mod close this topic? This topic has become a major flame and warez support topic, which I believe goes against CH's rules on forum posts.


C'mon pple, grow up and chill out. Sure the people who can't maintain a constant connection to the net has a legit reason to complain about the DRM, but 1/2 of u are complaining for the sake of complaining. If you are ****ed about it and don't wanna buy it, that's your choice. If u wanna use some pirated version, that's your choice too. But please don't freaking start a topic here just to bash the game and shout "I WILL PIRATE THE F**KING GAME".

Morale of story: Forums are meant for discussion, not flames. And the forum rules are there for a reason, abide by them or don't post.

Peace all

The DRM on this game is fine. Yes, if your net connection did drop it would pose a temporary problem, but that's exactly what it would be, temporary. The game saves often, at checkpoints and such, and you can prevent your saves from been stored online (instead, using a local cache).

It's relatively non-intrusive. It makes use of the Ubisoft game launcher when starting up. This logs you in and then starts the game pretty much. Nothing is installed into the core of the system and there are no programs/services that need to run in the background all the time.

Also, this method means that you can install and use as many times as you like. Compare that to past methods for example where you could only have limited 'authorisations' etc. It's not too bad. Some people won't like. I'm not exactly jumping up and down in excitement about it, but it's not draconian as some are making out (those that seem to be doing this haven't even got it, so I can't see how a judgement can be made).
