Unhappy Resident Evil Village players are blaming DRM for the game’s poor performance on PC.
“All in-game shutters like the one from when you kill a zombie are fixed because Capcom DRM’s entry points are patched out so most of their functions are never executed anymore,” explained hacker Empress, who claims playing a pirated version of the game without Capcom’s anti-tamper V3 and Denuvo V11 “results in [a] much smoother game experience”.
DSO Gaming tested the theory for themselves and played a two-hour snippet of a cracked version. Despite killing numerous enemies, they said they “did not get a single stutter during these two hours”.
