John Carmack fortalte i går i et indlæg på Slashdot at Id vil fjerne cd-checket i singleplayer med en kommende patch.
De gjorde det med Quake2, og nu gør de det snart med Quake3: Fjerner cd-checket i single player. Dette betyder at det vil være muligt at spille offline uden at have sin cdrom siddende i computeren. Man skal dog stadig bruge cd-key til at spille online.

Det fortalte John Carmack i et indlæg på Slashdot, som del af et svar på en anklage om at der var mange Q3-brugere hvis cd-keys blev brugt af folk med key-generators:

The “key generators” are all fakes. Some of them look like they work for a while because servers you have visited with a valid key keep a cache to let you in again.

As far as we know, there are no real key generators. If there were, we would have much more significant support issues.

We certainly will drop the CD-in-the-drive-for-single-player check in a future patch, that is our standard procedure after a game’s primary sales are over.

Hvornår den omtalte patch kommer er der ingen der ved.
