Nice discusion about elicenser. I will not use it for sure.
But i know you don't care.
BUT I wish you would focus more to your customers instead of wasting time in fighting piracy which will never possible to change. And trust me. One day there will be another smart guy as h2o did in past and also crack your dongle-system. They already did it in past with the dongle emulation and they will do it again. And then? U lost time to change your system for nothing and all your losed customers won't come back.
I would accept to pay 50€ for the Update 1.5 when you go with ilok (Software Manager) just to show my respect to your work and understanding that you wants to protect your work. You said it's expensive. Let us pay it. Together we can make it working.
But as many already wrote. People who use cracked software will never buy Avenger! NEVER! They still love using all for free. It's not fair i know. I hate that too because work needs to get paid. But also think of people like me. I invested 3 years now into Avenger creating over 2000 presets i plan to sell. And when i can't update i am not up2date with a synth i bought and supported over the years. You punish ME because other idiots punished you. Fair? I don't think so!
Yes, i also was mad and maybe little rude when the bugs doesn't got fixed. Excuse me for this. But i wanted to work with my tool and i couldn't because of daw crashes. At the end i found lot of bugs in Avenger and you fixed them. Now Avenger is running perfect. No CPU spikes here, no crashes and no bugs found until now.
Think about this elicencer dongle stuff twice and triple and even more. I and i think lot of others are welcome with ilok software manager or elicenser software manager but no dongles.
