By God, man, just buy a legit copy of the game, it's well within reasonable price limits. The reason software is sky high price wise, and not catering to PC anymore is theft, plain and simple. Until you commit to buy software, it will always cost the developer and in turn, effect pricing. Expecting everything for free is not the answer, a lot of hard work and man hours go into game creation. Obvious example is over several years for one outing of GTA (5).
I bought all my copies, didn't 'win' anything, but they all work as needed. I'd say, if you won from a source you know, let them know about the issue!
You have no idea what piracy is nor how it affects the software and entertainment companies (who by the way, are bigger crooks than anybody who pirates software or robs banks for a living). If the companies gave us what we paid for we wouldn't need to pirate their junk or wait till the price drops to 30% of the original.
A wise man once said "Piracy isn't theft. Imagine your car being stolen one night, only it's still there in the morning."
But regarless, it's not your problem what he spends or doesn't spend his money on, so mind your own business (and wallet).
@the dude who asked for help
Ignore the moron, I have no idea what's causing the crash but if you have no mods and if your PC is up to the task of running it, I'm pretty sure it's the game version or the crack (or both).
