Games at launch often include protections to prevent piracy. The most used system is Denuvo, which is specific DRM to protect games that sometimes lasted for hours. One of the greats User complaints Is that it takes up a lot of resources, something Denuvo intends to deny him own standard.
If you are a fan of video games, then you will know Denuvo well, since it is the most widely used DRM today. Its only task is to prevent the game from being cracked, come on, so that you can play it without paying. It’s not a very good solution, as it’s been hacked countless times, sometimes in minutes or hours.
Users do not like this tool, who complain that it affects performance. This is true and has been proven countless times. We’ve seen that a game with this plugin performs worse than after it’s been hacked.
Denuvo is tired of misinformation about its DRM
Many players have reported that the Denuvo DRM It puts the load on the processor. This causes a problem performance loss. But the curious thing is that it does not always happen, although in most cases it does.
Irdeto, which bought Denuvo in 2018, wants to shed light on this. During an interview, Irdeto’s Director of Video Game Operations Steve Huen answered the question: Does Denuvo affect game performance?
It is almost impossible for players to have the same game version before and after coding. In the entire life cycle of the game, there will be a denovo version and a non-denuvo version, but they are not comparable, because these two versions can be up to six. Many patches have been added to it by the game studio, which can make the game better or worse.
In terms of the anti-tamper feature, I guess I thought there should be a clear statement that what we were doing wasn’t having an appreciable impact on the gaming experience.
We have to say that it is First time That Denuvo or someone directly in its development is very clear. Huin also points out that it’s too late to start explaining this. It’s clearly a message to developers and former DRM managers, who have always been ambiguous.
Check it out with a benchmark
Irdeto appears to be running a benchmark program that shows game performance with and without Denuvo. It will become a tool that seeks to win the trust of video game fans.
Although we all know that developers can tinker with benchmarking tools. To gain credibility, it must be open source and available on GitHub, so that the code can be audited.
He is right in saying that explanations come too late. Denuvo has long been a program that lives in the dark, as it was the first time someone ever talked about it.
One can choose to believe Hoen or not. Maybe you’re right and the problem isn’t Denuvo, but failed patches and updates. In recent years we have seen how half of the games come out finished and of course they work terribly.
