I prefer DRM that does simple Disk Check, then you can remove, scheem. It stops piracy as much as all others out there and is far less intrusive. Internet required to install a game is problematic for me, only one of my pcs can get online and that is even very unreliable. I can't afford DSL or Cable or even Dial up right now...


Probably a stupid question: you can't afford an internet connection but can afford to shell out 40€ for a videogame? confused

FWIW, Larian released a patch for Beyond Divinity when Vista came out to remove the Starforce copy protection (which wouldn't install in Vista due to changes made to the way Windows handled drivers), and they have Divine Divinity and Beyond Divinity available from Good Old Games, free of any DRM.

Umm, there is a difference between shelling out 40€ a month for internet connection, and shelling out 40€ for a game when you can afford it.

It's more than an internet connection, it's a server connection. That server will not always be around.

As some people posted already on the forum, for our previous games we deactivated the DRM at some point and we'll do the same for this one.

Kache & StringingVelvet: $40 dollars for a game or $60+ a month for internet. You do the math the two are very different cost wise. Being a gamer I am going to get new game, that is a must. I accept that cost already. $720+ dollars a year for something I'll only uswe for game activations... I could spend that cash on far better things. IT isn't about not being able to afford it for me, it is about better money managment. Luckily I can hop on a unsecure wireless in my area to do the activation...It when it gets to internet check every time loading it that annoys me.

Yes, I believe you, and like I said before I don't worry about it because if you should ever close up shop and not do that for whatever reason then the fans will take care of it.

DRM on PC is no reason not to support the games, in my opinion. Well... except for Ubisoft's BS.

When will you deactivate the DRM for DKS? It obviously serves no useful purpose.

What a pity. I was looking forward to buying this. Now I guess I won't. frown
