Witcher 3 to be DRM-free

Recommended Posts

Today CD Projekt RED announced on their site that Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be 100% DRM-free.On an announcement on CD Projekt RED’s official blog, Marcin Iwinski stated: “I’d like to say it loud and clear: The PC version of The Witcher 3 will have absolutely no DRM from day 0. Zero. Zip. Nada. It doesn’t matter if you choose to buy it on GOG.com and support us directly or buy the game in box format, you’ll still get the 100% DRM-free experience.â€

 

There is no word yet on whether this will include a Steam version as well.

 

Anyone who owns The Witcher or The Witcher 2 from Steam or other retailers can download DRM-free versions by activating the games on GOG.com.

It's always nice to see things official, but I think we all knew this would be the case. Although, I'm still waiting for another AAA IP to catch the DRM-free fever.

      Hello everyone, I would like to clarify why my editing in the article on sound is constantly canceled?
      https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Sound
       
       
       
       
      Here is the evidence on the pictures below about the difference in sound on the spectrograms.
      As you can probably notice, that on Windows 10 samples are more identical to the original, rather than on Windows 7.
       
      Used materials in this tests


       
      Source sound


      Windows 10 on Realtek


      Windows 10 on Creative G1


      Windows 7 on Realtek


      Windows 7 on Creative G1


       
      The peculiarity of this behavior in terms of sound in Windows 7 was caused by the introduction of DRM at the development stage of Windows Vista, which is also easily confirmed by reading the development literature.
       
      To carry out this test, recording through the line input via the built-in sound card with the help of Audacity was used and then the results were transferred to the schedule through the Spek.
      The conditions were the same (Volume 80% output and input) and the same player Foobar2000 on default settings (no asio/openal and ks with wasapi exclusive for output) was used.
       
      For very talented people, I note that the sound system has remained the same since Windows Vista, but has been significantly reworked: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/windows-10-has-better-sound-quality-than-windows-7-on-my-computer-not-necessarily-yours.789224/
      Especially it is important for the old and not-so games that use DirectSound.
      And for those who like to listen to music, and especially in a high quality, because windose 10 does not force you to use all sorts of workarounds crutches mentioned above.

      Hello!
       
      Since I'm using Windows 10 I am not able to run one of my old games that is SafeDisc protected DRM. I was thinking that I maybe could make a virtual copy of the game and then be able to run the game. At first I was thinking using Alcohol 120 but I read that someone got a virus from downloading it so I'm not sure about downloading it. I was then thinking of daemon tools which seems safer. Does any of you have any experince with copying a SafeDisc game? Or know how to run SafeDisc game on Windows 10?
       
      Thank you in advance!

      I've had a nostalgia rush and wanted to play TrackMania Sunrise. However, it's has not been launching at all on my machine. I'm not the only person having this issue. A lot of people have reported compatibility issues with TMS on modern versions of Windows. I've tried both solutions listed here: http://www.tm-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=24517 But nothing works. Can someone help me out?

      CPU - Intel i7 4790k 4.0 GHz
      RAM- Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB
      GPU- EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Superclocked,ACX 2.0 4G GDDR5
      OS - Windows 10 Pro

      Players looking forward to experiencing Watch Dogs on PC on launch day will be disappointed to find that it's currently impossible to login to the game at all.
       
      Uplay is required to launch the game, and those currently attempting to connect will be faced with the above "Login failed" screen as Uplay authentication servers are being hammered by the usual launch day problems.It is still possible to download the game through non-Uplay services such as Steam or Origin, but all versions require Uplay to connect in order to function.
       
      As usual, the widely leaked pirated version suffers from none of these issues and can be played offline right now.
       
      Here's the response from the official Watch Dogs Twitter account:
      As usual, check out our Watch Dogs article for up-to-date bugs and fixes, which we'll be sure to investigate further as soon as we can login to the damn thing.
       
      Edit 10pm 27/05/14: Uplay servers appear to be up and working, can now login and play Watch Dogs.
