    So please, tell me again what could possibly be the cause of this WHEN MY SPECS ARE WAY ABOVE MANIA'S REQUIREMENTS before you come running to me calling me "biased" and doing this

    You already had the preconceived notion that Denuvo is the cause of your problem, but you don't even have substantial evidence to corroborate that. You have no tests. I'm far more inclined to believe SEGA, who likely tested the game to make sure that there wasn't any significant performance impact, if any, than some person on the internet who's going off of what other people have said.

    You state a lot of "can"s without actual proof, and you're referencing a debunked myth about Denuvo continuously writing and encrypting data to and from the hard drive repeatedly. You state that it can cause issues, but you didn't provide proof. You state that it can create vulnerabilities in the system, but there's no proof. All that you have are empty guesses. There is no point to arguing against those who are so easily manipulable to believe what random people say without bothering to verify it. That is all that this anti-Denuvo fiasco is.


    Because this shit has been tried before. Not everyone will be affected by it, but some already have been and this is the short term. The long term is when the servers are eventually shut down, everyone will be affected except for those that pirated the game.

    It puts a high burden on some processors that's already been stated by a few people. When processors start working too hard they got quite hot. This causes the fans to spin faster (which can shorten their life) and the amount of power the processor uses increases as a result of this. This can be a big problem for laptops.

    Hard drives have almost unlimited write cycles, but not solid states. I wasn't referring to that. Go back and re-read the post as I never once brought this up.

    People with expensive gaming rigs are experiencing frame drops that surely should be able to handle it on something without the DRM could run on Sega Saturn (which is quite old and slow).

    It seems to me all you want to do is defend bad decisions by large companies and not hold them accountable for it. Sucking the corporate tit because you think you have nothing to lose from it. While at the same time proving you're a lying hypocrite.

    You still have not proven that these issues that others are having are due to Denuvo and are still referring to myths about how the programs works. You're also going by the assumption that the developers and publisher won't do anything in the event that the servers go down.

    Based on your posts in which you defend anti-consumer DRM software, would I be correct in assuming you're using Windows 10?

    I use Windows 7. You seem to be so sure of yourself.

    Mania could run on a fucking Sega Saturn. It should not be causing my temps to reach these kinds of levels and have my fans screaming on my laptop.

    Are you even sure of whether Denuvo is the cause? It's more like you're going off of what other people claimed because it fit with your biases.

    If you're unable or unwilling to prove how Denuvo actually harms legitimate customers or how Denuvo harms computers, then don't bother. In fact, don't even bother to begin with because these myths are not new and have existed for quite some time.


    Answer the question dude because I get the feeling you're a lying hypocrite.

    Prove how Denuvo is dangerous, you dishonest backtracker.


    Environmentally it'll contribute to more e-waste. That's dangerous in the long run.

    On a machine that can't handle the encryption it can shorten the life of the device due to more heat being generated which also contributes to more energy being used.

    It installs unwanted software on someone's computer that can cause issues with some other piece of software or hardware. Go Google the Sony Rootkit Scandal of 2005.

    It can create vulnerabilities in the operating system and making it easier for Malware writers to attack your system.

    It could eventually be banned by Microsoft the way SecuROM was.

    It's quite simple. People who pirate games with activation utilities do not have to do an activation song and dance to be graciously allowed to use the products they have paid money for. Therefore, it is anti-consumer. Someone booting the game for the first time on a laptop on a plane will notice the game doesn't work, people in 20 years time when the activation servers are gone installing the game will notice it. People with pirated copies will be fine. The entire purpose of DRM is to stop games being run, ergo, it's anti-consumer.

    Quote

    Also, if you use Steam, then you don't have as many qualms about DRM as you think.

    I don't. Caught you now, haven't I? I have never paid for a DRM'd using game. See the fucking sig, which has been there for years.

    I say again: why are you fighting so hard to defend it? Do you WORK for them or something?

    Congratulations for not proving how it punishes paying customers. Denuvo is a real concern only for people who try to pirate the software that uses it. In the past, it was very effective at its job. Also, you act as if they can't just remove Denuvo in the event that its servers go down.

    And, uh, yeah, an antivirus program finding an emulator to be malware is perfectly fine with me, since the majority of the time they are used for piracy.
    ...
    You've done nothing but try to combat reasons why folks should be legitimately concerned about Denuvo and their software.

    Alright then. So let's boil down your reasoning: You brand emulators to be malware because you don't know the definition of malware then you brand Denuvo, a program that's designed to prevent people from tampering with DRM implementations and so protects against piracy, as malware for the same reason. Congratulations for being self-contradictory.
