    Hey, everyone! I hope this isn't too out of nowhere but I made a video on Spyro: Year of the Dragon's crack detection and thought you all might be interested in it:

    It's mostly just already existing knowledge but I tried to make it as comprehensive as I could. Hopefully it's informative!

    Fascinating, eloquent and well-produced video! Kudos!

    Didn't realise I'd already watched your 3DS hacking video in the past. You've got another subscriber from me!

    Okay, so the game was programmed to introduce random glitches and bugs if it detected it was a pirate copy. And so (presumably) make people stop playing and buy a legit version.
    But wouldn't a lot of people just assume the bugs and glitches are simply bad coding and drop the game altogether?
    Yeah I know there's the "your copy might be pirated and it might cause errors" warning, but still.
    I mean, listening to the bugs you're listing, doesn't seem that much different than the bugs you encounter in launch day games today :lol:

    to be fair a legit copy shipped with bugs not allowing you to 100% the game (gems that can't be reached that spawn in clouds above the level, eggs that you can't get)
    Seems they were probably a little to preoccupied to ap protection then bug testing, the bugs were fixed with a v1.1 disc release
