I don't want to discredit you on any of this. I too am try my hardest to get my own full version not pirated. (I use minecraftsp right now.) But, if you go to minecraft.net, look under the youtube video for the number of people who have baught the game, and multiply that by roughly 15 pounds, you'll see that Notch has made over 41 million pounds. I honestly don't think a few people who pirate it wont bother him that much.
That's actually the reason I pirated it in the first place. No trial mode.
I'd seen the videos, but I wanted to try it out before making a definitive purchase. I tried the pirate version, and ended up getting a copy for me, and a friend bought a copy too.
Maybe Notch could do like a trial mode. Like those 30 minute trials. That could work here. Anyone who's gonna pirate because they want it free is still gonna pirate. But now those of us who want trials get an opportunity to play as well.
I figure 30 minutes is enough to judge the game, and also often enough so that it's not worth the time reinstalling it every time you play. That deters people from playing the game for free with the trial.
Agreed. The demo came out after I bought it, so I pirated the game for maybe a few days, LOVED it. I told my other friends about it, then later I bought it, then my friend bought it, and the other one wants it but can't get it yet. I made up for it, but am I proud? Not one bit.
ahh i remember the first time saw a mc video i hated it then i watched paulsoaresjr's tutorials then i loved mc begged my dad to get he got a pirated version i was happy then skins i heard about skins i begged my dad to buy for days! then he finally got it :wink.gif: (the paid version yayz)
There is, but it was only at 1.1.0 last I checked. Besides, you need a paid account anyway to play it, otherwise it will treat everyone as 'Player' and not allow more than one person to be in the server because of it.
or you could edit, like guys using hamachi servers.
