Default UBI adds Offline option to UbiPlay for SH5

Yesterday the Uplay launcher had an update,which added OFFLINE MODE option in the setting section on the top right corner of the Uplay interface. Now the legal owners of the SH5 can play it without the internet connection needed even in the very beginning of the uplay starts!Of course you need to disable the savegame sychorization

loading up Uplay now to take a look.

Edit: Yep correct offline is there! I enabled offline then shut Uplay down, reloaded it and it went straight to offline ready to play.

Wow! Can't quite believe it! That's fantastic news, the DRM has finally bit the dust!

Has someone tried to start the game while offline yet? Like, set it to offline, turn off your PC, unplug your connection, reboot and try to start the game?

CONFIRMED! DRM IS DEAD!!!

Yeah!Though it still goes through the Uplay"Checking For Update" process and you have to wait before it finally confirms that your PC is really disconnect from the internet.At least DRM is gone.I believe there will still be such DRM in UBI's new game but sooner or later that stuff in new games will go the way it is now.What's more,ubi has added OFFLINE MODE in new game's DRM like Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.That's wise indeed.

Yeah, while Online I set the Launcher to Offline mode. Then shut off my PC and disconnected my router. I rebooted, started the launcher, got into game and started a mission and while it took a few seconds extra it worked, which is what matters.

It hasn't really bothered me, but now at least we have a new response to the constant DRM questions! No, it's not there anymore!

Yeah I imagine we'll see quite a few new Kaluens once the word gets out. Between this and the work on GR2, SH5 is moving in leaps and bounds these days it seems!



EDIT: wonder if it's all Ubi launchers or just SH5?
Double Edit: nope, just SH5. Settlers 7 launcher has no offline mode.

Why "break it gently"? I've been looking forward to this a lot more than you have.

And it came at the perfect time, too. I just got my pension payment yesterday. Next stop is Amazon...via Subsim, of course!
