What exactly does this thing? I don´t trust EXE files downloaded from non reliable sources, nevermind, I found and this interesting info

It is absolutely, positively 100% NOT ALLOWED to alter any of the dlls used by Crysis or CryENGINE2 that are not open through the inclusion of their source in the Crysis Mod SDK.

As far as I am aware (and as much as I have been told), this subject is extremely taboo. You are not allowed to reverse engineer the dll files used by Crysis or CE2. You are not allowed to redistribute said modified dll files. The only exception is the Game DLL which has its source included in the Mod SDK (not the current version).

So until I am told otherwise, I will have to close this topic. I have left a message with Alex and the other admins, so they may choose how they want to handle this topic or if they want to add anything else to the discussion.

Again, I'm sorry for having to do this. It's pretty obvious all of you really want physics enabled for dx9 servers. But the method that has been described by the author is not permissible, as I have explained above.

Until the matter has been resolved,

It was confirmed by Crytek's legal team earlier that any reverse engineering of any kind of files that haven't made been available by us through the SDK (which affects only the game.dll) is extremely illegal and a copyright infringement.

Even though it is a cool feature and even though we understand the community is requesting these kinds of things, we just cannot allow threads like this one to remain open on our portal, for obvious legal reasons.

Alacn, great work, but you must cease at this time. You should seriously put that talent to use when the source code is made available for the game.dll with the upcoming newer version of the Mod SDK.
So *magic* using this "unlocker" is extremely illegal and copyright infringement
