As we reported in our PC Performance Analysis, Resident Evil Village was suffering from some really annoying stuttering issues. And, from the looks of it, the culprit behind those stutters was Capcom’s own DRM. Earlier today, EMPRESS cracked this latest Resident Evil game. And, we can now confirm that the pirated version does not suffer from any stuttering issues.
From the looks of it, the culprit behind these stutters is Capcom’s DRM. EMPRESS claims that the game uses Capcom’s anti-tamper V3 and Denuvo V11.
“All in-game shutters like the one from when you kill a zombie are fixed because Capcom DRM’s enty points are patched out so most of their functions are never executed anymore. This results in much smoother game experience.”
In order to thoroughly test the game, we’ve played the pirated version for over two hours and killed numerous enemies. And, surprisingly enough, we did not get a single stutter during these two hours. Even the catacombs at Lady Dimitrescu’s castle, an area notorious for its stuttering issues when killing enemies, was stutter-free.
This could very well explain why Capcom has not commented on the game’s stuttering issues. Over the past couple of months, PC gamers were asking for a fix. And, thanks to piracy, we now know what is causing them.
Now I don’t encourage you to pirate the game. However, it’s really disappointing witnessing – yet another – game running better via its pirated/cracked version.
Below you can find a video that shows how silky smooth the cracked version of Resident Evil Village actually is!
