I know your new to the forums so I won't be too cruel though you have pretty much irritated me.
Been registered here since November 2003 (only a few months less than you) so don't feel you have to mince words on my behalf, subject to forum TOS.
First off, Larian has not wanted to deal with DRM since the first game...
Saying they don't like DRM doesn't excuse them from using it, nor does it entitle them to support from those who object to it or who are inconvenienced by it.
...as they've always ended up releasing a patch to remove DRM off of Divine Divinity and Beyond Divinity.
Larian have so far only released a DRM-removal patch for Beyond Divinity (the GOG version of Divine Divinity requires purchase, so cannot be considered a "patch" for existing DD owners). That's 1 out of 4 games released.
2nd, the DRM wasn't that bad as it did a CD check.
DKS requires online activation
3rd, In a few years DKS will most likely be on GOG.
If the DRM is going to be removed, why wait a few years? One of the points of my post was that retail availability of DKS is very limited
so an immediate GOG release would be of greater financial benefit.
Now a company worth boycotting is UbiSoft as their DRM is just beyond invasion of privacy.
I boycott anything requiring online activation and have done so as far back as Half Life 2. So yes, that includes Ubisoft and EA's recent releases.
...This sounds as if you were MR. President himself and would perhaps like to lower your mighty skyscraping presence towards a tiny bug err company if they decide to perform his wishes.
When it comes to my own PC and its setup, I am not only President, but King, Emperor and God.
I did however have my fingers burnt on a previous occasion, seeking out a copy of Beyond Divinity when Larian removed Starforce (no stores stocked it which meant running the eBay gauntlet) - I bought a game with tedious enough gameplay (speaking as someone who quite enjoyed Divine Divinity) that I never got past the Imp village. So once burnt, twice shy?
