    Frage what is *actually* new in dt updates and game blacklists ???

    is there a reason why the update information for dt releases is cryptic and vague ? (for a while now)

    i haven't seen specific game "fixes" mentioned at all. is that a problem to mention now that dt has gone mainstream?

    could something like; Some incompatibility issues fixed be code for: fixed C&C Kane's Wrath blacklist ?? (this is an example, no need to discuss the game per se.)

    since dt lite's arrival there's no game specific mention anymore. why ?


    ie: i have dt lite 4122 atm. is there any reason to uninstall and upgrade to dt lite 4123 for gaming ? has any blacklist been fixed ?? (if they only fixed issues that don't affect me, i see no reason to update straight away.)

    Newest SecuROM and Safedisc issues were fixed. If you have, Crysis, etc. you should install it.

    1.) I'm in contact with the beta team. And I tried playing Crysis with it - it works perfectly.
    2.) The beta team tests the games. Don't ask me what games. I'm not a beta tester.

    I don't know why they didn't mention the fixes. It's their devision. But we shouldn't care that much 'cause we're advised to use the latest version of DT pro/lite.

    We can't list these fixes due to legal matters (at least that's what i'm told to).

    that may have some merit, but i highly doubt it.

    stating something like this:
    Crysis v1.2 blacklist resolved
    or
    Crysis v1.2 issue resolved
    or even
    Crysis v1.2 bug resolved
    if anyone can sue dt soft and win for that description alone, i'll kill myself live on the internet. if sony and ea can blacklist dt tools, a legal software in most countries, in the 1st place with patch 1.2 then surely you can notify users that a fix has been issued in a new version.

    I agree with that. Any official comments?

    I can only remember one changelog where a single title was named (but only to inform which title was the first that introduced a direct blacklisting of DT).
    All or nothing; if you name one, you have to name all titles using specific protection version numbers.
    It has always been that way you have to try to be 100% sure an update affects you.

    Most people know that almost every new version fixes blacklisting issues.
    They test whether their problem(s) got solved and then report in the forums, e.g. here

    I think a community based changelog could be made where people post what works in the latest version. It's less work for the developers and maybe even more interesting because of so many people replying.
