If anyone wants to see how disgusting their security measures are, all you need to do is take one look at this:
[Replace the underscores in the link with ‘.’ so you can navigate to it, the forum doesn’t like people posting links, because apparently they have to treat us all like children?]
No one has an issue with having some basic anti-debugging measures in your software (& game-security measures), that’s not what I take issue with. It’s the blind and obtuse demand that nearly half of all personal computer users are essentially barred from playing the game should they 1. Be a Software engineer, or 2. Have any other software on their system…
It’s disgusting and immoral, let alone extremely deceptive since your software, documentation, or usage terms state NOTHING of this sort anywhere.
The people making the decisions on this team need to grow the -F- up.
Also, before anyone tries to act ‘wiser than thou’ about my concerns let me make it perfectly clear that I am not even trying to reverse engineer the game - I have not even touched it in that respect. This information was made public on hacking forums and you know what, I’m glad.
If 343/Microsoft doesn’t take two steps backwards on this asinine behavior then I hope and welcome the hacking community to tear this game the -F up. They deserve to get ripped a new one.
