    Really because most stuff is online. Offline I think most people got bored of hacking it out, you`ll still get many trainers over at gamecopyworld if you that is your bag

    Trainers are like No-CDs - largely a memory from more innocent times when all it took to start playing was double-clicking a shortcut, the scene often released games before they were commercially available, and which copy protection they used (if any at all) was irrelevant

    Clearly we come from around the same era. I did get rid of that "installed" check on autoroute using DOS debug and also a universal VESA driver, much simpler times. Easier on the Amiga as it had memory compare built in to Action Replay so was easy to spot changes before/after security and then you could just ask it nice what functions are addressing that byte damn seems so simple now

    Government are serious on Issues like piracy and there are anti-piracy laws in place to curb such activities.

    With digital distribution and online sales (Steam/PSN), game piracy i think is dead.

    Unless Steam and PSN also give games away for free, I'm not sure I see your point

    Thanks.....
    The real numbers are probably much lower than those. 98% of the stuff I pirate, I would never buy anyways.
