Extremely illegal?

I agree with diamonddave. I've been using Vista for over a year now, and I think its fine, but this is clearly just a ploy to make DX10 and Vista more desirable.

Also, if this program is just an .exe that runs in the background and isn't a patch to modify files, does it still break the EULA?

I know, its their right as software developers to set the terms of use, I just can't stand it when this is abused at the expense of the end user (ie, the people that keep them in business).

Yes I was posting it because I found it very funny and is Crytek staff who said is extremely ilegal

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.
