After reading a post by Tim on another thread in answer to one of my questions, I have another question --- this one is in reference to your "new" copy protection (actually it's an old concept, I wrote something similar back in the '90s and have to deal with a company in China that uses a similar process to validate copies of their design software): If my computer cannot contact your servers, for whatever reason, will my game be rendered unuseable? In my experience with Sothink (Hunan, China), I've found that if anything changes on my computer (video card, sound card, memory, number of hard drives or reconfiguration of partitions) I have to validate my software all over again. That really isn't a problem except when, for whatever reason, the software cannot contact their servers. So, again, what will happen to my game when it cannot contact your validation server? Will it still run in offline mode, or will it be rendered unusable?
