[Updated with Benchmark*] AC:O gets cracked 3 days after it's update containing Denuvo 4.9

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

NOTE TO THE MODERATORS, I WON'T BE INCLUDING LINKS TO THE DOWNLOADS, THIS IS PURELY DISCUSSION ON THE CRACK + REDDIT LINK DOESN'T CONTAIN ANY DOWNLOAD LINKS, THANK YOU

This morning Assassins Creed Origins was cracked by the team Conspiracy, the source will be /r/CrackWatch and I'll be providing a link to the NFO for proof of it. The biggest kicker of this crack is that it has bypassed Denovo's latest "PROTECTION" which is Denuvo Protect 4.9, it also went out of it's way to strip the Denuvo, VMProtect AND the Uplay DRM components. It has taken about 3 months and 2 days to bypass the DRM components, CYP didn't release a statement on the crack asides from "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned". This must come at a huge and massive blow for Denuvo considering this was their very latest iteration of DRM and it comes days after Sonic Mania which contained Denuvo 4.9 was cracked by CYP.

 

People who downloaded the crack are reporting very minor performance improvements of about 5% however, it's yet to be confirmed properly, just rumours and conjecture. 

Quote

 

Almost two weeks after the cracking of the anti-piracy system Denuvo version 4.8, a group of hackers called CPY reported on the successful development of the "medicine" for Assassin's Creed: Origins, which was released on October 27. In addition to Denuvo, the game used additional protection VMProtect, which added additional complexity. 

While it is not known for certain whether CPY released a way to bypass the system or made a full hack. With the first option Denuvo will continue to work against the background, so there is no need to improve performance by freeing up additional resources.

Some unverified benchmarks

Someone from the CW discord did a test so it's pretty unverified but it's something I guess. NOTE: Denuvo itself is still in the game but it was disabled, along with VM protect

Original at medium settings 1920x1080p

That's with all the driver updates + BIOS updates

But take this with a HUGE grain of salt.

Still waiting for a CEO to say that DRM will be removed a month or two after release. 

 

In other news, EA's loot system still hasn't been fixed.

Damn Youuuuuuuu. I spent 10 minutes deciding whether to post the reddit link im my own post.

Get one of the moderators to merge the thread in here, I don't mind really or just copy and paste it into here.

They won't remove it, because they'd have to admit that it's awful for the CPU

I feel bad for the people that had to spend money on that crap.

It's proving more and more useless.

It's a great game, so I don't feel bad for spending money on this "crap". I average 40-50 fps, and the game play is very smooth. I don't have lag or weird experiences like that.

 

I am against pirating content, and am for companies trying to protect their IP. (confrontational statement coming) Piracy can and does hurt industries. There is argument either way, and this horse has been beaten to death. Although I believe that companies do need to take measures to protect themselves, I do not understand why this seems to be the one that everyone uses? It seems super unreliable, and it would be better to have none than something like this. There has got to be better anti-piracy designs somewhere else. Not sure why developers pay this company a crap ton of money for nothing....

Especially the developers that pay hundred thousands of dollars for a game to be cracked in hours, days, etc.

Why not just have the game be verified through online servers in order for it to be playable? Wouldn't that fix the piracy issue? Unique key tied to a unique Ubisoft account? I would imagine that sort of technology would exist by now....

Arent these protections meant to slow down cracks from appearing? I mean, this time it failed, but when it does, at least more people (who cant wait) will pay. Not that I support hackers at all (Getting your work copied by others and lose potential profit is terrible. Anyone who worked on a group project with a free-rider on board will know that feeling), but it's inevitable.

That'd still require an online feature and that'll just piss people off.

They're ment to stop them outright. But Denuvo isn't that good at protecting.

Yeah, I would like to know if pirates actually affect them in any way or form or if they're just blaming lower sales on pirates.

Like a study or something would be nice.

I wasn't on about the game, I was on about denuvo. Stop getting your panties in a twist.

Nothing's twisted. Your initial statement wasn't specific, so I wasn't able to "clearly" decipher your intentions.

 

There are plenty of peer reviewed scientific articles that discuss how this does negatively impact the developers. I can pull sources if need be. (and by sources, I don't mean online news articles).

The game runs in a virtual machine of its own rather than directly on the "hardware".
