DRM Question
« on: November 11, 2012, 04:24:35 PM »
So I have a couple questions about the license key you would receive upon purchase:

1.  When I enter the license key, do I need internet access, or is everything done offline?

2.  Pretty much same as first question, but if I backup the game, then want to revisit it perhaps years later and with a completely different computer, I can just install and enter the key, right?

It doesn't need internet access, it's a purely local check.

Right :)

For that matter, once it's installed you can just copy the installation to a jumpdrive or whatever and copy that to whatever computer you want to run it on (it would even run off the jumpdrive, no installation necessary, but the "disk" access speed would be a bit slow).
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games? Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!
