looked around further and it looks like it may have been fixed, but that was one hell of a hole in your computer. gotta love DRM.

Another win for DRM. Go UBISOFT! WOO!

.... Note the sarcasm yes?

My installation of it has always been behind three FireWalls anyway, so its not a problem for me.

I just don't give my money to DRM happy companies anymore, since the debacle over SFxT I have been extremely selective of my game purchases and thus far, Blizzard, Capcom, Ubisoft, and EA Games no longer get my money...
