Since we're sharing old artifacts, either publicly or over PMs, here:
Your non-boss clearly states CH doesn't condone "replacing game files". What does your MK11 patcher do, I hear? Hey, the timestamp's changed. So is the MD5. I wonder why
Glad I kept that screenshot. Eat your words now.
"Software cracking (known as "breaking" in the 1980s) is the modification of software to remove or disable features which are considered undesirable by the person cracking the software, especially copy protection features (including protection against the manipulation of software, serial number, hardware key, date checks and disc check) or software annoyances like nag screens and adware."
I think we know the difference between removing anticheats either on disk or in memory vs. cracking software so that it runs without DRM or user password. Stuff like what you posted about cracking our trainers, THAT sort of stuff.
As I've stated already here, and other places, if I can LAUNCH A GAME without modifying the DRM of the game, then we will modify files that a user has on their harddrive if it's the simplest way to get around anti tamper or anti-debugger/anti-tools/anti-cheats. They aren't bypassing any DRM directly (i.e. the game STILL requires STEAM/UPLAY/whatever to run). At the time of FarCry 5 and etc, I hadn't and haven't had time to trace everything in each .dll to know what was being used for what. Unlike you with your nebulous name, we have actual names, and actual tax ID numbers, and actual address where we can be contacted and sued for stuff. So it pays to know if you are modifying anything for sure that may be misconstrued as cracking or breaking DRM. The fact is, that if the developers contact us, then we will remove our trainer if they can demonstrate our trainer is harming them, or harming the DRM of the game. We did Far Cry 5 in somewhat two different ways, but basically where the CreateRemoveThread stuff is at where check for EAC is done in the farcry main .dll and then just force it true, and in fact we shared PM's about our code spots and what techniques we did, especially after updates. I only modified one spot, you apparently modified two or maybe three (i don't recall) Each of us got inspired moments from each other or other groups' work. You actually put the technique and successful FIRST launch of Far Cry 5 without EAC before anyone else. In fact, I actually posted that very thing on the forum and congratulated you and said you should be proud or whatever it said. Interesting, that none of these things are in your post.
So I repeat: Look, I don't know how many times I have had to say it. YOU DO A GREAT JOB REVERSING AND HAVE A KNACK FOR EXPLAINING YOUR PROCESS HERE. NEITHER YOU NOR I ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD AT THIS. YOUVE DONE STUFF AHEAD OF OTHER PEOPLE OR UNIQUELY WITH SOME TITLES. I don't see why there needs to be a 'war' or some sort of dick contest here. I don't have time for that, and our resources are actually best used working on things as a team fashion or at least as allies against common problems/foes rather than wasting hours on these anti CH screeds. It doesn't even matter what I write back, you reject it, and the users here that would respond are completely synchophants. When people take the time to post content here and useful stuff, you are deleting it and destroying it if you don't like the person or the site they worked at. This is all YOU, not some other admin here.
Whatever man. Create and live in whatever universe you want here. I mean, you are the admin, so what can I do about it. I'd rather get along here, contribute, and try to exist side by side other direct competitors here, which I think we are all doing to an extend, but a single admin here who is angry that he got banned due to his own actions on the site is still holding on to grudges. It's not like you don't have access to CH, obviously. I don't have the ability to get you back in, sorry. I am but one vote out of 3 for that sort of thing.
My main reason for coming here, other than contributing from time to time, is to see if someone is ripping our work off or sharing our stuff, or defend our site when necessary. Although doing that is futile if the main attacker is an admin who can literally block you, change your text, etc.
