Resident Evil Village is a good game. But on the PC has played a bit under annoying stuttering problems that have left many frustrated. Capcom has not yet solved these issues, but now a cracked release of the game that removes all DRM seems to have solved all the strain.
As reported by Dark Side Of Gaming, the PC version of Resident Evil Village was recently cracked by EMPRESS, a famous DRM remover. Now that Village has been cracked, anyone who knows where to look can download a pirated version of the game and play it without DRM. Removing DRM from Village also seems to have settled down the ugly stuttering problems that have plagued the game ever since it was released back in May.
In a statement that the cracked release of VillageEMPRESS claims that Capcom uses both Denuvo and its own DRM technology. And it looks like all that DRM inside Village was the culprit behind tribes and gameplay features players have experienced.
“All shutters in the game like the one where you kill a zombie are fixed because Capcom DRM’s entry points are patched out,” EMPRESS explained. “So most of their functions are never performed anymore. This results in a much smoother gaming experience. ”
According to DSOGafter testing the newly cracked version of the game for a few hours, they can confirm that it actually runs better and is a more enjoyable experience. In a video posted by DSOG ‘s EIC, you can clearly see how smooth the game is now running with all the DRM patched out. Compare that to this video of one non-cracked version of the game is running on RTX 3080.
Kotaku has reached out to Capcom and Denuvo about the strain and the latest cracked version that seems to solve the problem in Village.
