Resident Evil Village really runs better when you break it.
It came out earlier this week Resident Evil VillageImplementations of Denuvo’s DRM anti-piracy (as well as Capcom’s own DRM layer) are the main reasons for the PC’s constant stuttering.
The pirates said that using the crack eliminates all these problems and they turned out to be right. Digital foundry test these claims and you will find that DRM is indeed the cause of Village problems on the PC. The latest video technology socket, seen above, demonstrates this by testing all areas that previously suffered these fractions of a second.
The main main village, two cases of stuttering, whenever a zombie played a key animation, such as throwing at a player or recoil from a shot. Then there’s the fight with Lady Dimitrescu’s daughters, who also hit the framerate in a similar way.
Both of these issues are solved by Digital Foundry testing when using an NFO crack that disables DRM games. Capcom did not initially respond to a request for comment, but has since informed DF that it is working on a fix that should resolve this issue for its paying customers.
“The team is working to update PC performance issues, which should be available soon – we’ll have more details soon,” Capcom said.
Needless to say, this is not a good sight for Capcom. Even if this additional fix resolves the issue, it would still mean that paying customers had to endure a worse experience unnecessarily.
