Eidos Attempts to Combat Piracy of Batman: Arkham Asylum


Sponsored Links
259w ago - It appears Eidos is attempting to combat piracy of Batman: Arkham Asylum by disabling the all-important Glide ability if you aren't running a legitimate version.

In the official [Register or Login to view links] under a thread called 'Problem with Glide' a (pirated version) user explains his frustration that when holding space bar on the PC version of the game Batman's Cape remains closed and he falls to his death in poison gas.

To quote: Cheshirec_the_cat: Hi! I've got a problem when it's time to use Batman's glide in the game. When I hold , like it's said to jump from one platform to another, Batman tries to open his wings again and again instead of gliding. So he fels down in a poisoning gas. If somebody could tel me, what should I do there.

Keir (Eidos): The problem you have encountered is a hook in the copy protection, to catch out people who try and download cracked versions of the game for free.

It's not a bug in the game's code, it's a bug in your moral code."

Whats wrong with my moral code?!?

Like jeff said, its futile and I am sure they dont have something like that stopping the xbox360 pirates. Damn, PC gamers really cant get a breat

Batman on the 360 has almost twice as many downloads, on the torrent site i visit most, compared to the PC version.

Similar download counts on other sites as well

There's already a working crack out that fixes the glide but there's problems later in the game. Sounds very similar to the GTA IV drunk driving on non legit versions which was hacked pretty quickly, but I'm glad to see companies trying to find new ways rather than crap like Starforce.
