GameGuard Shuts Down Disabled Gamers

September 15, 2009 at 00:12 Leave a comment

The nProtect GameGuard software is an anti-cheat program designed to stop botters and hackers from using illegal third-party programs, but the disabled community gets snagged in this poorly executed “take no prisoners” anti-cheating approach.

Botters and other nefarious individuals use these programs to automate tasks such as repeatable quests or killing mobs for money while away from their computer.  Hackers use these programs to ruin the gameplay of others or boost themselves.  Disabled gamers use legal third-party programs, such as on-screen keyboards, to assist in playing games that would be impossible to play otherwise.

Unfortunately, GameGuard does not care about the difference between illegal third-party programs designed to hurt a game and legal third-party programs designed to help gamers.  Couple of things

I never liked GameGuard…
