"Didn't want to deal with legal"? Seriously? A 10+ years old game on a defunct (support-wise) system and they're scared of lawsuits because of the 90 days notice? Now that there's probably going to be a DMCA exemption for abandoned online games? And despite the game still being playable (but not plattable) with XLink Kai after the shutdown?

 

EDIT: and they've already delisted the game all DLC anyway...

The Library of Congress has passed a new ruling that makes preserving video games a little bit easier. 

As highlighted by Motherboard, the Library of Congress has agreed to "adopt exemptions to the provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that prohibits the circumvention of technological measures controlling access to copyrighted works."

In short, that means it's now easier for video game historians to circumvent the DMCA in the pursuit of preserving and sharing culturally relevant video games. 

"The Acting Register found that the record supported granting an expansion in the relatively discrete circumstances where a preservation institution legally possesses a copy of a video game’s server code and the game’s local code," reads an excerpt from the 85-page document. 

"She concluded that in such circumstances, the preservation activities described by proponents are likely to be fair uses. She further found that proponents demonstrated that such uses would be adversely affected by the statutory prohibition absent an exemption.

"The record indicated that an exemption would enable future scholarship by enabling researchers to experience games as they were originally played and thereby better understand their design or construction."

The Acting Register granted the above exemptions after deciding they were unlikely to harm the video game market in any way, and while it's good news overall, there are some notable downsides. 

For starters, archivists and museums will still have to legally acquire the original game and server code, which might be a tall order depending on the title in question. The exceptions also don't apply to "affiliate archivists," so private citizens won't be able to lend a hand. 

What's more, any "eligible library, archive, or museum" that actually managed to get an online game up and running again won't be able to grant public access from outside of its physical premises. So, anyone who wants to take those games for a spin will actually have to visit the relevant institution in person. 

Finally, the DMCA exemptions also won't apply to server code that's been recreated or emulated, putting another hurdle in front of those organizations hoping to breathe life back into defunct multiplayer titles. 

For now then, it's a notable step in the right direction, but one that also highlights the variety of challenges still standing in the way of game preservationists.

Give it enough time and maybe they'll make it legal for us to emulate servers

Saw this thread. Saw a session with somebody asking for clan help afterward. Since I help with those two clan trophies, I attempted to log in. This is what I got.

If that were accurate information, I wouldn't have been able to jump on the mp of a different game right after trying Warhawk, which I did. I tried Injustice. Played a few matches even.

Injustice is not being ran by Sony though, is it? PSN, Warhawk, and TM are. If there's a technical problem over at Sony then it's possible that their games are also being affected. I got signed out of PSN earlier and so did my friend so there are likely issues with PSN, down detector also has received an influx of reports in the past few hours. 

 

This is all very technical and neither of us are qualified enough to give an opinion on it.

Me and a friend also had license verification issues earlier while playing Destiny 2. This was just a few hours ago.

Yeah. There was problem with PSN (same as last week on Tuesday too). I started game for 5 min today before work and everythink worked fine. 

 

Btw. Did any of you know any tips for Hit List trophy? (Minimum amount of players and if need to be ranked or not and if playing on split screen making this trophy impossible to get?)

Everyone talking about getting platinum, but barely any mention of 100%.

Why should they? the dlcs are ridiculously easy, just like the miscelaneous trophies of the main game. You can do all dlc in a matter of 2 hours, just like I helped @DoucetDudes doing them.

 

It's not like completing the DLCs for this game deserves any recognition. It's basically just "been there, done that".

Servers will stay working until Jan 31st. Update your thread when possible.

Isn't that the point behind every trophy on every game?

Maybe for more skilled players, yeah, but in a different gamma of harder games, earning trophies aren't as much of a cruise as Warhawk's DLC trophies are.

I can certainly confirm what @TheYuriG said. You can get about 75% of all the trophies in the game in about 3 hours if you're organized and know what to do. That includes every single DLC trophy. 

Getting a high % in Warhawk is easy. Only a handful of trophies make the platinum difficult.

Wasn't debating the difficulty of the DLC trophies, just commenting on the lack of people referencing it. Sorry for butting into the conversation.
