Ubisoft fixes virtual drive "problem"


— 5:20 AM on December 22, 2003

A week and a half ago, we reported that Ubisoft's latest patch for Raven Shield was incompatible with virtual drive programs. What was disturbing about the patch wasn't that it didn't let users run Raven Shield from a virtual drive, but that it refused to run the game at all if any virtual drives were detected.

Now, it appears that Ubisoft is backing down from its aggressive stance against virtual drive programs. A new patch for Raven Shield has been issued that "takes care of problems with virtual drives." It would have been nice to see Ubisoft admit that their latest anti-piracy scheme had gone too far, but at least they were quick to fix the "problem."
