- Resident Evil Village has been struggling with microstuttering since its release;
- A hacker known as Empress claims that his crack fixes this problem;
- This has been confirmed in tests by DSOGaming.
The DRM used by Capcom in Resident Evil Village may be responsible for the technical issues that PC gamers have been experiencing. This conclusion was reached by people who decided to install a crack released by a hacker named Empress.
Capcom uses, like many other publishers, anti-piracy protections. Resident Evil Village uses Denuvo V11 and the Japanese publisher's proprietary solutions. Players blamed them for being the source of technical problems experienced by players in the game. Specifically, stuttering that occurs most often when killing monsters.
When hacker Empress cracked the game's security and released a crack, he boasted that getting rid of Denuvo's shackles simultaneously eliminated the stuttering problem in RE Village. This was confirmed by DSOGaming, which decided to check if the hacker is right.
As you can see in the video above, microstutters have disappeared. So if you want to enjoy smooth gameplay in Resident Evil Village on PC, you'll have to wait until Capcom releases an update to remove Denuvo.
