HRRRMMMMMMM.......You are taking something illegally that is not rightfully yours? It is against the Law? The government can put you in prison? It requires a ship? It requires looting another ship?

Its not when it comes to the legit version being broken... As i explained in my one post in here, I said my game is broke so I go and get a crack then start playing using that.. like i already said I BOUGHT THE GAME.. there for i have a key BUT the legit copy is broken so i go to use crack.. **WORKS PERFECT NOW**

It is the best way to get a very nice thread locked.

Thank you in advance.

You bought a key. You didn't buy the entire franchise. I buy a car from Honda. They give me a key to a certain vehicle with a certain VIN. I can't say gah my vehicle broke. Let me go take another one off the lot.

So I stay with legit ver and just keep getting game crash? I'v looked all over for a fix for the game and no luck once so ever except for an update that i dont think i had cause the company apparently never fully released it.. the game is called "slamit pinball big score" if this helps. As for the type of problems im having: when i start game, theres no pinball in the shooter, game crashes when entering into the xbox 360 controller setup (this all happen before i got the non legit) also this game is pretty old witch shouls work fine on my pc but it don't

help would be really nice.

Well this is a first. A guy claiming his legit, store bought, retail versions of his PC games are more unstable and unplayable then his cracked pirated versions.

If you want to torrent PC games, have at it. I don't give a fuck. But don't try and make people believe you do so, because you get superior performance with pirated versions.

Well, there have been cases where DRM has been so bad that people have gone and picked up cracked versions of the game (EA's Spore)... though, those don't affect performance...

Np. I just googled it. I can't actually vouch for the helpfulness of any of those links because they're mostly steam forums and I'm behind websense, but your issue is not isolated. Something about going to gamepad controls apparently causes it to crash.

jeeze, don't be thick. He was suggesting you do your own research before deciding to pirate stuff.

But this ... "game"--looks like bloatware. Are you sure this is legit? I don't dare click on any of the links from work.

I know right, I looked at some forums before where people said the game is totally unplayable, that there tells enough (if more than one have played it)

If I would'v read there post before I bought the game, I would'nt be posting any of these posts in Ghastlyone's thread.

To get back on topic and speaking of steam...

Jade Empire was another pretty annoying regret. I couldn't play it properly on my widescreen monitor without having the mouse cursor completely disappear. Stupid lame ports to PC.

Don't worry... it was still lame on Xbox.

My only complaint with Steam thus far is that I have several games I've never even played because they were full games that cost less that $10 during a sale. I will play them...one day! Probably in 2057 when I retire and kids say things like "You have to use your hands? It's like a baby's toy!"

So the object lesson here is to be an informed buyer.

Some games are an unplayable piece of crap and the production studios should die a fiery death. Cracking a bought game to make it playable is one thing--outright pirating the game is something else.

In the past, you've certainly given off the impression that you just pirate games to pirate games, and then blame your computer for not being able to play them.

Most guys I know (including me) do not need to talk anything out, because after 20 mins, the issue that bothered us has ceased to be a bother.
