No BTD6 HWID ban somehow. I reformatted my pc and I was still banned. I reformatted it and used a pirated version and I still had 2 leaves on the cog wheel. So I think Ninja WIki implemented some kind of HWID checker somewhere in the game. I deleted all registry as well and it still throws me an automatic ban.
no^^ try to think logical
HWID ban can only happen if the game connects online.
did you try to start the pirated version COMPLETLY offline? does this work?
if it does NOT work then it does server checks (without the steam API)
this coul be, and this would also be a evidence for something HWID related.
so you said you formatted you PC right? did you format ALL you HDDs/SSDs or only the one with windows installed?
coz the game also could create hidden files on your computer, and every start the game is checking this hidden files and IF they exist -> ban flag.
the thing is : i dont have the game ... im just giving generally logical advices.
so in short:
does the pirated version start if your computer is completly offline?
if yes are you still banned?
or do a breakpoint on CreateFile or smilary window API calls while the game starts so you can see what it trys to check.
there is something that is called Revo Uninstaller - this does uninstall a game and auto. detects everything that was created from the game (even hidden stuff)
so you can also try that, install revo, start the game so that the game accesses the hidden stuff, then use revo for a completly uninstall.
sorry that i dont have the game, but i can guarantee you its possibly to fuck that stupid bans xD
just use a "elimination process" to check for each method that would be possible to detect your local machine, until only 1 possible thing is left, and then you can look to bypass it.
