Marty Stratton, executive producer of Doom Eternal, has announced that Denuvo Anti-Cheat (not to be confused with Denuvo Anti-Tamper) will be removed from Doom Eternal in Update 1.1 which will be "rolled-out to players within a week". This follow the recent patch which implemented Denuvo Anti-Cheat in Doom Eternal faced backlash last Thursday.
The developers will consider "giving campaign-only players the ability to play without anti-cheat software installed":
The initial reason id Software implemented anti-cheat in the first place is clarified:
The main announcement can be seen here on the /r/Doom subreddit:
It remains remains to be seen whether id Software's decision to remove Denuvo Anti-Cheat again in Doom Eternal is permanent.
After some past requests we have implemented ProtonDB links in all relevant PCGamingWiki articles.
The new link now appears in the form of a ProtonDB icon in the bottom of the infobox where other partner links are placed. This is automatically added when a Steam App ID is added to any game article.
Proton is a tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated with Steam Play to make playing Windows games on Linux easier to achieve. ProtonDB gather reports from other gamers as they test games with Proton on Linux and provide aggregate scores of how well games perform.
Hopefully this link will encourage more reports to be submitted to ProtonDB to help Linux gamers get their games working. I have also spoken to buck, the developer for the site, who is looking into mutual linking from ProtonDB pages back to PCGamingWiki in the future.
Bethesda appear to have accidentally released the DRM-free exe of Doom Eternal on the Bethesda.net store according to this post on /r/CrackWatch. Within the game package was an exe file which had the Denuvo-free exe. Bethesda have now patched the exe file with the correct Denuvo DRM.
Steam stats show that the number of concurrent logged in users has now exceeded 20 million. The all time highest number for Steam at the time of writing is now 20.3 million users which ocurred on Sunday March 15th, 2020.
This comes as no surprise as lockdowns continue to be announced worldwide with more and more people staying at home due to Covid-19. Not only this, but the Steam userbase continues to grow, and certain Steam games like CS:GO also achieved its all-time concurrent player peak of over 1 million this Sunday.
Hi there! :)
We talked with Andrew about our program.
It might be featured later in more official fashion.
But for now forum post seems to be best way to introduce it.
Released on Steam previous week:
We thoroughly analyzed each supported game and in many cases our program
provides some exclusive tweaks that are not listed on PC Gaming Wiki.
When there are descriptions of useful changes that are hard to automate,
we show link that directs to PC Gaming Wiki page.
In case of disabling startup videos, we always remove or overwrite files, if possible.
Program also provides cheats, sometimes as tweaks.
To enable god mode in Outlast 1 exactly 60 properties in INI config are modified.
Program can override FOV in STALKER games, where DLL file is modified.
PC Gaming Wiki tells you to download some ZIP, which must be extracted into proper dir,
and then some batch script must be run and finally proper number must be entered.
Program is able to:
- modify config files (10 formats supported: from simple key = value to engine specific)
- modify registry entries
- modify binary files
- set compatibility modes for executables (admin, win xp)
- set CPU affinity
- set process priority
- copy files
- remove files
- create directories
- extract files from archives
- mark files as read-only
- show formatted hints
All changes can be reverted.
About 200 games are currently supported with more to come:
Program is moddable, so new games can be added without programming skills.
Detailed HTML documentation is available.
Program can download Community Pack with multiple configs.
Unfortunately, program did not receive much media coverage.
You can spread the word and get 3 keys. More details here:
