    Good for him, the mod costs even less in sales at least twice a year, so the "it's OK to copy" crowd should get the support they've paid for. In fact it's a shame he publicised it so quickly with the new build.

    i tried buying gary's mod on steam last year but then i kept getting steam errors (something about my first game being a retail copy rather than a digital download (wtf)) but this sort of **** makes me want to pirate games.

    Fair play, there is no excuses for pirating games.

    Reminds me of The Sims:

    Recalculating Splines... Shading Polygon Normals...

    Although Shading Polygon Normals actually makes sense if you have deferred lighting.

    I absolutely love this. I just did a quick Google Search and had a look at some of the other complaints. I think more developers should do this, especially as games like that are so cheap, and don't strangle you with DRM. They obviously put a lot of trust into the end user, and it's people who pirate already cheap games that take that trust away.

    Some reading material:

    That last one was quite interesting, where a user suggested that he should write a full error log over at the Steam forums :D

    The cynic in me wonders if there will be any false positives - ie, Garry's Mod exhibiting this error even if it's not pirated.
