Highly annoying!

On every project I wish I was allowed to spend time on copy protection, but it never happens.

Does it matter really matter Steve? It is going to be cracked, no matter what.


IIRC, Alkis said that it was cracked the first week it came out. The way he distributed it (mail orders dispatched directly by him) he can probably find out who did it, but personally, I think that it's a sign of success.

Indeed DITR was uploaded on pirate sites about 10 days after its release. But this "Reloaded" group is a new thing. I was told by several people today that it is supposed to be some kind of honor as they are the "top crack group in the world" and my title is the first Greek game ever to be cracked by them. Somehow I don't feel honored, I feel like somebody pissed on my efforts and my hands are tied.

Spyros, after a deal I made with them DITR is also being sold online by The Adventure Shop and their partners now, it has been for a couple of weeks.

A lifelong cracker is ideally suited to creating anti-cracker features ;)

I'm not so sure. It's a bit like someone breaking into your house, stealing your stuff and then someone else posting on a forum that someone else is giving it all away somewhere.

Imagine how Alkis must feel knowing that people are stealing his hard work. Sure it's a fact of the digital age but there's no need to rub his nose in it.

He knew that someone was going to steel his work... just like everyone else... all these game companies that produce game etc.. they all know too...

It would of had to have been worded differently for me to be rubbing his nose in it...

Anyway.. look at the company he`s in.. in between Spore and Mercenaries 2 :D :D

And that makes it ok? You know there's a chance that your car could be stolen but would you be happy if it was?
