Kaldaien’s FAR mod for NieR: Automata detects and locks pirates out of playing

In case you did not know, NieR: Automata has been cracked. This third-person action title uses the latest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, however crackers were able to crack it almost one month and a half after release. As you may also know, and since PlatinumGames has not addressed any of the game’s issues, Kaldaien’s FAR mod is a must-have for this title. However, there is a catch.

Kaldaien has made it possible so that his mod can detect whether someone is using an original or a pirated version of NieR: Automata. And if someone is using one, this mod prevents the user from launching and playing the game.

So, those using a pirated version of NieR: Automata with Kaldaien’s FAR mod will be welcomed with  the License agreement (that they obviously can’t accept since they are using a pirated version) and another message tells them to buy the game in order to support the developers.

Now this is a really clever move. Yes, some will say that this mod acts like a malware for doing something like that, however this is a really clever way to prevent pirates (and reward those who paid for this title).

Well done Kaldaien!
