Well it's about time they just made everyone's life easier and just posted a general code. Clearly their servers can't handle the load of a ton of people all grabbing those free games.

I just wish that code was around of the Quantum Conundrum sale. I don't think there's anything I really want now and it looks like they are doing daily free games now instead of daily sales.

I thought they said vouchers were tied to accounts.


Of course, if someone wants to try it, it's no bother to me.


That's no fun. I have three of them that I won't use.

Curious - How come Beyond Divinity from GMG has some kind of Online Activation DRM attached? :-x

Patch 1.49 from their official website REMOVED (StarForce) DRM from Retail versions of Beyond Divinity LONG AGO.
Plus, Beyond Divinity is DRM-FREE on GOG.

You mean besides their capsule downloader or thing or are you talking about that? Can you install the patch over it?

Anyway free is free so I am not going to complain.

No, no.
You can run the game w/out Capsule going.
I'm talking about when booting game for first time, it prompted me w/ an online activation check.

Can you install the patch over it?
Anyway free is free so I am not going to complain.

Oooh, that's a good idea.
Let me actually try that!

EDIT:
It won't let me throw Patch 1.49 (Retail) over GMG Version. Let me try something else...
I have the EXE file for BD on another machine (patched from Retail w/ DRM-check removed). Let me grab that and throw it on top of GMG version...

EDIT 2:
Okay, so I uninstalled BD Retail patched to 1.49 long ago on my older PC. Forget it.
I'll try something else. I'll toss BD Retail and patch up to 1.49 on my high-end PC and toss the Retail-patched EXE (1.49) over GMG version EXE. See what happens.

EDIT 3:
Yup, the above worked.

I wonder if they need to have online activation so people can potentially trade it in later? I know it says no trade in value now but some of these free games of the day I believe they later allowed to be traded in.

The game itself doesn't have to be activated to trade it in. I've never played any of the free games I've gotten but have traded them in from my library both for direct credit at time of purchase (of another game) and as stored credit for a future purchase.

Hmm, but what's to stop someone from trading something in then still playing it? There's got to be some phone home check to see if you still own the game before it lets you in otherwise the whole trade-in thing would be pointless and people would just buy games, trade them in for credit and still keep playing them.

Oh, I was under the impression that it had to be launched via Capsule and that effectively determined whether or not you could play it. Trade it in and it's removed from your Capsule library.

I'm just saying that you don't ever have to install it or use it to trade it in. Consequently, you don't have to ever install Capsule to trade the game in, you just can't play it.

Oh okay I see.

MysterD was commenting that other versions of Beyond Divinity were DRM free and this wasn't and I was just thinking that maybe all the (non-steam) GMG games need to have online activation DRM (if you play it) because of the whole trade in thing.

I'm not really sure how the whole thing works. To be honest this is the first time they gave away a game I actually want to play.

Anyway TL;DR I don't think GMG can do true DRM free because of trade ins but someone correct me if I'm wrong.

That could be what it was - maybe it's GMG's DRM on top that wants the online activation.
Regardless, renaming GMG version's EXE (to Div_old.exe); then tossing in my DRM-FREE EXE (from Retail version of the game that I patched up to 1.49) over it worked!

I don't wanna sell this game back to GMG! I'm keeping their BD files for a MUCH easier install of the game (without using the Retail discs).
Retail install didn't work - didn't want to recognize disc 2. Had to copy Retail discs to HDD in same folder and then run the installer from that folder to install retail version.

They can't if it'll ever be eligible for trade-in.

In theory they could do a DRM-free game and just have it not be eligible (likewise, Steamworks games aren't eligible since they can't control your Steam account). But I'm sure they would rather nudge people into using their client and trade-ins are the carrot for that.

I've never bought anything from GMG, but always swung by and grabbed whatever freebies came along. I just took the 20% coupon and then traded in everything I could for another $11 and got Battlefield 3 Premium for $29. BAM!!!!

By the way, the 20% off codes are not only tied to your account, but they are one-time use only, even if you didn't buy what was in your cart. I wanted to see if they applied the 20% before or after applying any credit you had. The code doesn't work now, I didn't buy anything, I was just getting a total :/

You should be able to use COSYO-UDIDN-TGET1. I believe that is a general use code not tied to any specific account. I would imagine it's 1 use per account though.

If you're talking to me, I first did the trade-ins (to see if it worked) then I used one of the codes I had. When applied, suddenly the total was $40. It didn't give any message that I couldn't use both, so I went and un/rechecked the trade-ins and the all came off w/o a problem. Paid, immediately got my code, slapped it into Origin and got my shooty on.

New deals up today - Tomb Raider series 75% off, batman Series 50% off.

Best deal is Deus Ex series 75% off.

So 7.49 for regular edition, if you have the voucher it is down to 5.99 and if you have any credit it can go down even lower.

Thinking of finally buying it for 3.99 after voucher and credit.

All of the 20% off vouchers last until the end of the month. No idea how long their "winter" sale lasts.. I don't understand their seasonal sales lol. I wonder where they're based if they consider this "winter".

I think the "winter" part is just them trying to tweak Steam a bit. Seems like it's relatively good natured, though.

Well, someone in the Steam thread had no problems using the code a few minutes ago.. so I'm pretty sure it still works. Not sure why the other guy had problems with it.
