A couple of days ago we wrote about Valeroa, a new DRM technology that made its debut with the release of City Patrol: Police. The technique promises several advantages like a low level of nuisance, but also promised to be extremely difficult to crack. Now we hear that Valeroa isn't that great at keeping pirates at bay, DSO Gaming reports crackers needed just two days to break the game's anti-tamper tech.
To its credit, Valeroa can be described as a more consumer-frinedly anti-tamper tech than Denuvo. It does not affect the performance of a game as only a handful of functions are protected by it, does not require you to have an internet connection, does not not continuously read or write to your hard-drive (so it will not damage them) and does not limit the number of daily installations or changes of hardware.
Looks like Valeroa is unlikely to replace Denuvo, unless it significantly beefs up its defenses.
