    Yeah, but we don't know if the crack actually works for the full game yet, if the crack causes part of the game to corrupt, then its frustrating for pirates and legit buyers.

    Patches are cracked too, as has the SH5 one, since developers frequently release games that need patches as a way to slow down piracy.

    If the game is good and it's steam only or has drm you can expect me to enjoy the title and the company will get no money from me. Simple as that I require a dvd and a box for them to get my cash. So sad how they screw thru steam and drm the honest paying customers.

    Soo in the end :

    Pirates : Enjoy game for free and without DRM.

    Customers : Have to deal with annoying DRM and pay for it.

    Way to go Ubisoft!

    Cuz I'm praying for rain;
    And I'm praying for tidal waves;
    I wanna see the ground give way;
    I wanna watch it all go down;
    Oh God of games please flush it all away;
    I wanna ride the wave right in and down;

    I can imagine why wouldn't
    Welcome any change, my friends.

    But I wanna see it all come down!
    suck it down;
    flush it down;

    Watch you flush it all away;

    Has this still remained uncracked, as far as i know it looks that way, as has a working one for SH5.

    This goes on any longer, and Ubisoft will definetly be calling this a success.

    There is probably same system as in AC1, which had multiple checks for cracked version. It's crackable, but takes longer of course. Quite many wonder why it hasn't been cracked yet, one reason might be that is hasn't even been released yet in everywhere :nerd:

    Just a thought, if Ubisoft claim that the games can be patched at a later date to allow them to run without the DRM servers then surely it is just a case of reverse engineering the code and waiting for the pirates to come up with the patch themselves.

    Yeah it will take time and it will take effort but if Ubisoft say THEY can do it then the pirate community will no doubt be able to do it....

    ..unless of course Ubisoft were lying about being able to disable the DRM at a later date, but they wouldn't do that now would they?

    i think they planned on it. I'm sure their main priority is of course zero day piracy with a secondary of holding off the pirated version as long as possible so they can actually make some respectable profit from the PC market off the dang thing.

    Seems to me publishers like Ubisoft are the ones trying to save the PC gaming market, not the gamers. Their testing out new things to delay piracy, not thwart it. If they were not trying to maintain the market, then there would be no PC release.
    If this doesnt work out any better than past DRM's, they will just try something else and its not getting any better so far so why expect it to?

    From "sources" I can confirm that Reloaded is working on a Full Rip (released game + files that need to be downloaded), which should be released max. at the end of the month..
