According to some leaked documents, Crytek has paid €140000 for using Denuvo in Crysis Remasted for one year.
What a waste of money, most probably sadly this was pirated the very first day of its release.
Pretty sure it was pirated quickly however I don't think many people even wanted this game after its disappointing news on how it handles CPU threading.
Anyway with denovu from memory if the game is cracked in the first three months of launch the publisher gets a refund meaning crytek / EA paid nothing in the end
dang denuvo making tons of cash for being as effective as wet paper
There has to be some sort of clause stating if a game is cracked within a specified duration then you get no money. You just cannot get paid for failing at your task while also pissing off the intended customers by unnecessarily using resources. That would be a scam.
LMAO and guess what it was cracked pretty fast and I torrented it. :P But the game is shit, not really optimized so I'm not playing it. Original will always be better. Denuvo does take a performance hit in games as well not supporting that crap in any games.
The "I committed a crime" section is the third door to the left down the hallway.
I don't support denuvo but this is pretty cheap, no wonder devs use it. It if has a hope of disrupting piracy for the first month then there is already a business case.
Denuvo is trash and it makes your games run slower, plus more likely to crash. So please stop using this software.
why when I read this did it come across as Dino Crisis Remastered.. lol
wishful thinking I guess..
What these publishers want is the game not to be cracked in the first three to four weeks because that's when they can sell the game for the full price so if this software achieves that it is successful for the publisher
Maybe they should have used that money to pay staff to make a better game? On ps4 the game hasn't had a single patch. Still release 1.00 version,insane.
At 1,200,000.00 per Cryengine 3, license I'd say it's a drop in the bucket. Still a waste, particularly knowing that it is only a matter of time before Denuvo's efforts would be cracked (given their track record) and concern of piracy on a game this old is just silly.
Oh, and the shorter "remaster" is absolute shite. Slightly better than a SLI config back in the day at MAX. They should have called this this Haze edition since someone got a damn feather up their butt with the Atmospherics and made every environment with Fog, Haze, Myst or a super delicate artificial horizon line of soup. There was even fog inside the damn aircraft carrier.
As long as people steal games there will be shit programs like Denuvo , so forever . Not that this game is worth pirating in its current state . Personally I pay for games I like . The only games I ever download for free were games I wanted that I couldn’t pay for if I wanted to .
So you just steal stuff when you can't afford it.
The Witcher 3 proved that you don't need DRM to sell tons of copies and piracy doesn't take anything from sales. People who purchase games will always purchase games, people who pull a Jack Sparrow will sail the seas forever. DRM only hurts paying customers with low and mid-range PCs.
