Resident Evil Village: Removing DRM should eliminate stuttering

Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village is a pretty good game. At least if you want to believe the numerous reviews from critics and gamers. On the PC, however, the title suffers from some performance problems, which cause a lot of frustration. Capcom has still not fixed these problems, but the video game pirates have now managed to crack the title. By removing all DRM measures, the title should now play a lot smoother.

As Dark Side of Gaming reports, the PC version of Resident Evil Village (buy now) was recently cracked by EMPRESS, one of them relatively well-known names in the field. Now that the title has been cracked, any gamer, if they know how, can download the title and play it without DRM.

According to a message from EMPRESS, Capcom uses both Denuvo and its own DRM technology. Allegedly, all these copy protection measures are supposed to have ensured that Resident Evil Village shows a rather sobering performance on the PC:

"All stuttering in the game, for example when you kill a zombie, has been fixed, since Capcoms removed DRMs Most of these functions are no longer executed. The result is a much smoother gaming experience. "

Dark Side of Gaming has tested the recently cracked version of Resident Evil Village for a few hours and confirmed that the title runs a lot smoother and it is an overall more fun experience:

"Even the catacombs in Lady Dimitrescu's castle , an area known for its stuttering, ran absolutely smoothly. "

You can see the DRM-free version of Resident Evil 8 for yourself in a video by the editor in Chief by DSOG. For comparison, you can watch a video of the normal version on an RTX 3080.

At this year's E3, Capcom announced that they are already working on a first DLC for Resident Evil Village. We haven't received much information about the new DLC, but maybe with the release of this you will also make a few improvements to your PC version.

Resident Evil Village is a good game. But on the PC the game has suffered from annoying stuttering issues that have left many frustrated. Capcom has yet to fix these issues, but now a cracked release of the game that removes all DRM seems to have fixed all the stuttering.

As reported by Dark Side Of Gaming, the PC version of Resident Evil Village was recently cracked by EMPRESS, a famous DRM remover. Now that Village has been cracked, anyone who knows where to look can download a pirated version of the game and play it without DRM. Removing DRM from Village also seems to have fixed those nasty stuttering issues that have been plaguing the game since it was released back in May.

In a message announcing the cracked release of Village, EMPRESS claims that Capcom is using both Denuvo and its own DRM technology. And it seems that all that DRM inside Village was the culprit behind the stutters and gameplay hitches players have experienced.

“All in-game shutters like the one from when you kill a zombie are fixed because Capcom DRM’s entry points are patched out,” explained EMPRESS. “So most of their functions are never executed anymore. This results in much smoother game experience.”

According to DSOG, after testing the newly cracked version of the game for a few hours, they can confirm that it indeed runs better and is a more enjoyable experience. In a video posted by the DSOG’s EIC, you can clearly see how smooth the game now runs with all the DRM patched out. Compare that to this video of an uncracked version of the game running on RTX 3080.

Kotaku has reached out to Capcom and Denuvo about the stuttering and the recent cracked version that appears to fix the issue in Village.

Capcom confirmed in June during E3 that it had started work on DLC for Resident Evil Village. No more details about the upcoming DLC were revealed, but hopefully, Capcom can get the PC version of Village running better before then, even if it means removing DRM from it.
