Question Re: ~ | Official Painkiller Feedback Thread! | ~

Oh my more bull from devs check this out Warp2search anyone got any problems ?

Anybody who plans to buy this game: HOLD ON, DON'T DO IT YET! Wait and see!

It seems Painkiller is going to be the biggest game copy protectionb scandal in the history: the Painkiller game IS NOT working AT ALL with a DOZEN drive, including the widely used (HP, Compaq, Dell) OEM LG drives!

The current list, compiled by me - PAINKILLER DOESN'T WORK WITH THE FOLLOWING DRIVES:

# Pan International CyberDrive 240
# ASUS CD-S400
# M a t s h i t a CR-581-B
# Philips CDD2000
# LG GDR-8161B - this is in the majority drive in xwX000-family HP WS, also known as
# HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8161B
# Toshiba HL-DT-STDVD-ROM GDR-8081N (2002 sept laptop drive)
# LG HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GMA-4020B Apr 2003 IDE (internal drive) - probably none of these LGs are working
# HL-ST-DVDRAM GSA-4081 - I bought it weeks ago, this is that 8x DVD+/-R/RW/RAM drive!
# YAMAHA CRW-F1E - the tattoo drive

and still counting!

Dreamcatcher, the publisher of Painkiller title DID NOTHING BEFORE ITS RELEASE, although they KNEW THIS PROBLEM VERY WELL, as they made a small topic on their web forum on April 5th, 48 hours before the game arrived to the stores.

It's safe to say it was a malicious move to hide the truth as long as they can, avoid hurting their sales - even they knew already they're shipping a defective game.
