Starfield Frame Generation - Replacing FSR2 with DLSS-G Free version of the same mod not made by a man child that isn't happy making half a million a year.

Is that an exaggeration or do they actually make close to that? Im just curious

https://web.archive.org/web/20230924045050/https://www.patreon.com/PureDark He started hiding his count but he was at 11k last week and his most popular/cheapest tier is $5 USD so he makes 55k a month. So basically 660k+ a year.

Yikes. I mean i kinda get you wanna get paid for your work but at the same time id be way down for making 600k.

Hell id kill for 80k lmao

I'd personally settle for a pateron where people reward me for whatever even if it is exponentially less than paywalling/drming/mining it.

Wow. Talk about ensuring no one uses your mods again.

Hahaha.

Sorry, I dont mean to laugh, but where have you been?

The bulk of gamers only care about their instant gratification. If they actually were capable of taking a stand then there'd be a lot less awful companies pulling in billion dollar+ game releases.

That's hilarious. I can't believe someone would openly admit to putting malware in a paid mod, I'm surprised anyone actually bought it in the first place.

So someone will take his mods and make actual pirate versions of them. If he's trying to Streisand it, couldn't have done a better job. I don't see it being very profitable, though...

B r u h, what a petulant fucking child. Game developers tried the same shit for years and those still got cracked. This guy can go fuck himself.

https://www.nexusmods.com/starfield/mods/2751 I like this one better. It even adds menu options

[-] [email protected] 8 points 9 months ago

The moment you release a mod for free you list all privilege of making a paywall cause people will try even harder to get it for free than if it where paid to begin with

What a imputent salty child, "hidden mines" my butt, they gonna be removed by the couple of people still using htwir mods in 5 nanoseconds after release

I understand he's mad that he's losing money of a thing he made but, I think he's going about that the wrong way. I would see that as more of a challenge then a "wow I shouldn't do this", I expect any person doing stuff like this would look at it the same way, free cracks and exploits are rarely about the money, it's generally about the challenge of doing something that isn't supposed to be allowed. Adding "mines" to try and sabotage it I believe will just make someone more apt to try and crack it.

Reminds me of Game Dev Tycoon, the pirated version of the game would occasionally have your hit games lose a bunch of sales due to piracy.

In Mirror's Edge one of the jumps near the end of the game was programmed to be actually undoable. It slowed you down, just a little bit, so it was now impossible to complete the game.
