Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

Does anyone else find it amusing that Ubi can't keep their always-connected auth servers running, and yet, they're planning on now serving content from their servers as well? :roflol:

Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

The only way to beat DRM is to not buy the game and not pirate it. And make sure that you email the publisher to tell them why you are boycotting their product yes this may be what you would like to do ... i AM getting this game regardelss of DRM issue's, i have stated my opposition to "intrusive D...

Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

There's nothing that annoys me more than seeing people post, "I'm not buying this game because of the DRM, I'll wait for the crack and download that instead." . All that does is send a very clear message to the publisher that states, "Your copy protection isn't good enough.". The only way to beat D...

Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

I use steam for most of my games, i dont use the offline mode as well internet is less likely to be disconnected than the frindge empty of milk nowdays....

Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

@ fng_thatoneguy Completely right we will have to "agree to disagree" .... I dont see how it's one sided... there are two sides (if not more). ie: side 1) the protectionism and inteference of the software by DRM side 2) the constant relentless stealing from people who DO have means to pay for stuff...

Re: Ubisoft online services platform - WTF?

No one will argue that pirating hurts those who create the products... And just because people argue against current and future nasty/invasive DRM implementations does NOT mean they condone piracy. We can all agree that piracy is a major factor for the current state of things; and I think we can all...

Re: Game FIX (2010-03-15 , 2.11.26)

fng_thatoneguy: can you try chosing "Software" instead of hardware in the audio tab of the launcher options, to see if it works any better? Zahl: hum I looked again thoroughly at what modifications are included in the patch, and there's really nothing relating even remotely to audio. So I'm a bit p...

Re: Game FIX (2010-03-15 , 2.11.26)

As one of the few people playing Trackmania with music, I have a serious problem since I updated: Whenever the music is NOT playing, the framerate drops to around 30fps. If the music is playing, or I disable the music (by setting the volume to 0 ingame) the framerate goes up to 60fps again (I'm usi...

Re: Game FIX (2010-03-15 , 2.11.26)

Heh, I'm seeing the TM Launcher wanting to download it now, but it's only d/ling 143k out of the ~21MB it says it's supposed to be.
Anyone have the full thing they can post somewhere for a manual download?

What's in the update this time?
