Exclamation Points From Russian Forum on New Protection System Thread

Hello Everyone,

Been reading through the Russian section of the forums. There is a similar thread about the new DRM. Russian Thread On New DRM Protection System



I could not find any post(s) from Offical ED Personnel stating the "First" and/ or "Primary Goal" purpose of the new DRM is to combat piracy/fraud.



A few points I have gathered from the posts of Official ED Personnel. USSR_Rik and Chizh.

По этому поводу могу процитировать сообщение коллеги во внутреннем чате ED:

Тут имеется в виду комплекс работ и по новой системе активации/защиты и по недавним техническим работам на сайте.

Онлайн летная книжка и леддер пилотов первое что приходит на ум.

On this occasion, I can quote the message of a colleague in an internal ED chat:

Here we mean a set of works on the new activation / protection system and on the recent technical work on the site.

The online flight book and the pilot's glacier are the first that comes to mind.

Yup, tying all this to our user login will afford ED some freedom to add new features.

You defended the new drm by claiming that Starforce does the same (need to phone home regularly). And now as it seems your claim is wrong it suddenly doesn't matter?

I never claimed that, I stated I heard that it did call home, I mean it must otherwise how does it know there is something wrong, such as a banned key. It's not the same as what the new DRM is, but it must require some amount of internet access to work some features.

But I never claimed it worked like the new DRM.

Erm, but understanding how the current system works is that not necessary to design a new a "better" system ?

For the person coding the new system I am sure, are you coding the new system?

Nope, I guess neither us need to know how Starforce works to make the new one better, glad that is settled, thanks.

But it would still be good to know how the current DRM works to be able to evaluate if the new one really is better before spending my hard earned money.

But as it seems that Starforce does not take away my ability to play offline when it can´t phone home I think I have already formed an opinion what is better...
