First of all I would like to say that I don’t support piracy, I am a software engineer and I know how much effort is needed to create a game or a software in general. If you like a game you should purchase it to support its developers. This way you can enjoy future releases of the game you like and love to play. On the other hand, there are many reasons why someone might use a crack. I have met several gamers that don’t use their DVDs to play their games, some told me that they are collectors, some don’t like using the DVD. For any reason, not anyone that uses a crack pirated it, at first it sounded very strange to my ears but now I am one of those people.
The introduction is over, I recently played Serious Sam 3 BFE and I enjoyed it, even if it is not what I was expected. As I said before I crack almost all my games and most of the times I even help others that do the same to fix their issues.
Issues and Fixes:
Game freezes or close unexpectedly: If this happens to you then you need a better crack. I will not provide links to this post.
Player looking the sky and spinning: This is DRM, an anti-piracy protection and there is nothing wrong with your computer. Don’t try to load again a previous save because this will happen again and again. If you have Steam move your game folder to the Steam\steamapps\common\Serious Sam 3. Create the missing folders. If you don’t have Steam don’t worry, you don’t have to install it, just create the folders. It can be C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Serious Sam 3. I have read that some others instead of this issue they face invincible scorpions, the solution is the same. After this you need to restart the level, annoying but consider the alternative.
Those are the most common problems and fixes. About the game, I could see pixels, it reminded me when I was playing DOOM 2, this shouldn’t happen in new games, it was annoying. I didn’t kill so many aliens/creatures in the previous three games I played, it was refreshing!
