Remember the Securom and SafeDisc technologies that made gamers have a hard life during the last decade? Windows 10 sees them as malware and will block using games that include them
Somewhere in the early 21st century, before the digital revolution helped significantly reduce piracy in the PC gaming market, we saw an attempt to combat the phenomenon with a host of draconian and violent file protection (DRM) systems designed to prevent games from being hacked - and in most cases damaged in retrospect. Especially in the players who bought the titles with the best of their money, and less in the pirates who would have enjoyed detours that the various hacking teams across the net would offer.
Due to the problematic nature of those protection methods, most of which have already been extinct to our delight, Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 will not run games that are based on two of the most notorious (notorious) among them - SecuROM and SafeDisc, due to their known potential to be a cushion for various types of damage that can gain access to the operating system.
spoken In a significant number Of titles from the previous decade, and also from the beginning of the current decade. Due to the known problematic of methods DRM These many of those games have already been given simple tools that should enable the removal of the corrupt defense system - however, bottom line, many players may find that their old game collection does not work in the new operating system.
In the long run, it seems that the complete killing of those horrible file protection methods is a positive step, and we can only hope that the move will spur the various keys and distributors to distribute tools to cancel protections in all their past titles - and perhaps spur the GOG store, which announced an initiative several months ago As part of it began to provide digital versions without DRM Included for those who purchased protected versions of the same titles in the past.
