Wow, awesome news about the DRM free push, thanks! I was going to get Kings Bounty but stopped after the DRM- I'm not going to risk it until it is for sure DRM free.

Are there any good coop games here that are DRM free? Dawn of Magic 2 looks cool but not sure it has a coop. Even something like League of Legends vs AI mode would be cool. I'm having trouble finding 2 things that I want that are DRM free since I already bought Penumbra years ago for $2.50 from Amazon.

Good news CAG. 1C is going to be providing us with DRM free builds for many of these games. I don't have a solid timeline yet or a full list of games, but it looks like a good number of them. We'll replace the builds for those who already purchased with the DRM free ones as we get them in.

As soon as I have a full list I will let you know.


You won't see the list before tomorrow, but I've secured a slot to do another promotion with 1C after we make the catalog changes :).

Cheers,
Tony


Tony, thanks for the quick responses. I'll hold off on King's Bounty until the next 1C promotion -- I want my money to reinforce the idea that DRM has no place in a "long-tail" market. :D

OMG @ me winning both Ryder White and Bloodbath DLC's from Techland's Twitter contest for Dead Island...

Anyways, been looking to buy Dawn of Magic 2....but need a 2nd game for the BOGO
As many probably know, I'm a big RPG and shooter fan...

Any other recommendations for another 1C game to buy?

Here's some 1C games I already own, so DO NOT suggest these:
Cryostasis [Steam];
ALL the King's Bounty games [Steam];
Penumbra Collection [Steam];
Necrovision [DVD Disc] + Lost Company [GMG];
A Farewell To Dragons [Direct2Drive...now GameFly]; and
Alien Shooter: Vengeance [Steam].

What 1C games I'm curious about:
UFO Trilogy games - anybody bought them? How are they?

Does Crysis have any DRM?

Crysis 1 on Gamersgate and GameStop PC App are listed as using [some form of] Securom.
I'd guess Amazon DVG's version probably floats in the same boat.
Can anyone confirm or deny if Crysis 1 download from Amazon DVG uses Securom?

I bought Crysis 1 + Warhead from Retail - they use Securom.
Crysis 1 Retail used a simple Securom disc check; that's why I'm not sure what Crysis 1 from digital downloads have for details of what that version of Securom uses.
Can anyone help us out w/ details there?
Crysis: Warhead from Retail & Digital uses Securom w/ required online activation; 5 installs for an install limit and allowed revokes/deauths.

EDIT:
If you're looking for what EA games have revoke tools and/or their DRM details, look here for some of them.

Crysis 1 has an activation limit and doesn't have a revoke tool. Warhead does have a revoke tool. Not sure if there's any way to revoke an activation for Crysis 1. The activation process is 100% silent so you won't even notice it until you run out of activations.

That sucks; never knew you couldn't revoke activations with Crysis. Good thing Amazon gives you more activation KEYs at no cost! TY Amazon :applause:

Yeah, that form of DRM is the most annoying to me (limitied activations and no way to revoke them). Amazon is probably the best place to buy Crysis 1 from, never have to worry about getting a new key.

Doesn't Amazon give you another key if you hit the activation limit?

I'm in Washington with no alternate so yeah I am pretty much stuck with about %10 sales tax on DD from Amazon, Valve, Microsoft, EA etc etc. The only way I ever can get around it is buying international or buying boxed from somewhere like Newegg.

I need to move somewhere without so many tech companies. :-P


High-five (+ sales tax) fellow Washingtonian!

It sucks see all steam/amazon prices and needing to add sales tax to them.

It works fine. Just make sure you can play it, lol. Anyways, I ran into a bug where the game would crash during the final stage. Finally had to switch to the 32bit version to finish the game. I'll get around to playing Crysis Warhead in a while. Playing too many other games now.


There isn't a demo for Crysis is there? The can you run it site says my pc passes the minimum but doesn't meet the recommended due to my cpu. Most of the time I find that when my pc meets the minimum it's not even playable.

Recommended: Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz/Athlon X2 4400+ or better
You Have: Pentium® Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz

I don't get it. Isn't Core 2 Duo and Dual-Core the same thing? Mind you I am pc stupid lol.

You CPU is very old. Here is a ranking of Intel processors.

http://www.intel.com...?select=desktop

You are going to want to get into the i series to play newer games. The i5 2500k is probably the best for gaming.

The following is my opinion:


Just got to remember, minimum specifications = minimum satisfied experience; meaning everything put on lowest graphics settings.
Recommended settings = average settings for a recommended experience; but in my opinion is NOT equivalent to the specifications needed to max the graphics settings.


Core-2-Duo is a specific branding name given to a specific class of CPUs [they can be dual or quad core - yes I know they have Core-2-Quad]. Yes, you do have a "Dual-core-Pentium" Intel CPU, but you do not have a "Core-2-Duo" brand Intel CPU [Pentium is a very low tier CPU, Celeron = lowest, then Pentium; desktop wise [yes I know there's also Intel Atom CPUs]].

For Crysis, you need a strong GPU. Any modern dedicated GPU [last 2-3 years] should be able to play Crysis at least on the lowest settings.


Again, the above is my opinion
Good luck

A very cool Skyrim Mod:

You should just be able to start up a chat session or send an email and let them know you've run out of activations. They should re-issue a new key at that point.

Sure is buddy, we'll have another 1C sale again once I have all the DRM free builds ready but I'm not sure when that will be as it takes some time for us to get back catalog ingested, tested and ready for sale.

Thanks for your help and input. I just bought a new graphics card (Radeon HD6670). Box says it came out in 2010. I plan to build my next pc with a buddy and get much better equipment then. I got this card to plan some more stuff on pc until then. I got a lot to learn haha.

I thought I would mention in here that Texas will start paying sales tax on Amazon purchases starting July 1st.


Well...Fuck. I'll have to see by how much and adjust my spending accordingly. :/

Btw, is this wikipedia article about Alien Shooter accurate in that we can copy the speech folder from the Amazon download and pop it into Steam's Alien Shooter 2 Reloaded to add voice overs?

This is probably worth noting...

Some of the games on this 1C Sale, their Demos can be found on the Official 1C website...
...such as the UFO games; King's Bounty games; Fantasy Wars; Death to Spies; etc.

So, umm...yeah... :)

You can always test the demo out and see if you want the full game...

Yep :). I'm not 100% sure though which titles are going DRM free, based on my last email exchange I THINK everything except:

[FONT="]RnR, and MoW AS will be DRM free...but I want to wait until I have confirmation on this to put together our next sale.
