    Post 5 reasons to not use a cracked version of Fusion 2.5

    If you thought my post today would be about defending Clickteam and the work we all do on a daily basis, you would probably be right. However, whilst there are millions of reasons to not use a cracked or torrent version of Fusion 2.5, some of the most important ones are damage to yourself, your computer, your identity and security.

    In this article, I lay down the top 5 reasons not to use a pirate version of Fusion 2.5 and why...

    https://clickfusion.academy/reasons-...ed-fusion-2-5/

    Your thoughts and comments are most welcome.

    Support Clickteam in 2017/2018 and get the best support along with access to new BETAs, early WIPs and updates.

    Here is my opinion: it is NEVER justified to take software you don't have the ownership rights to use. Just because you FEEL entitled to use something, the fact is that if you can't afford it, you shouldn't take it and use it. Period. No exceptions. You don't walk into a store and take a candy bar off the shelf and eat it when you don't have the money and intention to buy it. You just go without. You save your money and plan to buy it when you can. I hate to generalize here, but a large contingent of the online world operates on the assumption that because you can get something for free (when you should be paying for it) with a simple click, it is ok. It is not. There are negatives to not offering a trial version of software, but that is going to hurt the developer, who might learn and change their approach by creating a trial version. But in no way does that translate into "take something that isn't yours" just because the world is not fair to your particular situation.

    Perfectly summed up in one tiny sentence. Amen.

    If you are patient, you could get Clickteam Fusion for a lot less then full price. There is always a way to get a discount, Steam sale, store sale, Humble Bundle etc. There is no reason to pirate it.
    Last add-on on sale I got was the Firefly. I don't have plans to use it yet, but if sometime, in the near future, there is a support for Android, I'll be there ready to go. (We do need more tutorials for the Firefly).

    dangerous topic!

    my only reason for wanting to crack it wud be to test if its worth getting. but seeing as there is a free version, there is no need. & clickteams actual price points r very reasonable. plus i luv the clickteam staff & community & want 2 support is as much as i can (u all r making my dreams come true )

    but honestly, i really dont like wen ppl r held back or stunted from building there skills on a package because of finance, life is too short. i wudnt hav all the skills i hav now & wud hav missed lots of opportunities if i didnt crack loads of packages wen i was young & had zero money. for example 5 year old boy shows a gift for making 3d models in 3dsmax at an exhibition where they hav it on display, but his poor family cant even afford a pc, so he doesnt learn it til say hes 12 wen they finally get one, hence 7 years of wasted skills development. obviously yh, i get it, he shudnt just steal it (or shud he lol) but, i just hate that stuff. & a lot of the games developers of whose games hav given us great joy built their skills using cracked software.

    as i said this dont apply to fusion coz there is a free version, but thats my personal opinion on these things.

    in an ideal world all wud share all & there wudnt be any money eh?

    Thanks for the comments Shinbaxter. I agree in an ideal world people wouldn't be held back because they couldn't afford things, but as a species we're not quite there yet alas! What a lot of people seem to miss is that every time someone pirates a copy of Fusion or any of our products instead of buying it, that's one more dent in our finances and potentially one or more features we don't have the funds to add to Fusion 2.5 or even Fusion 3 for that matter. It is literally as simple as no sales = no company, and whilst some people seem to think everything can just be allowed to slide, we just cannot operate in that way and I don't know a whole lot of small companies who could.

    The people who feel strongly that some poor person is entitled to free software.. the onus is on them to pay and provide the software to poor people.. the onus is not on Clickteam.

    It's like if a farmer has grown all this food and there are lots of poor hungry people who need that food.... We don't let them steal the food (and ruin the farmers livelyhood) instead we more fortunate people either donate money or food directly to those who need it.

    Sounds like it could be a good charity idea actually - providing access to software/tech for young people with potential talent etc.

    Look, you can never stop people pirating your software, it's inevitable. But here are my suggestions.

    - Add an always be online feature to the program (A lot of people don't like this but hey ho).

    - Make your software cheaper and charge for each big update to it. (So you get version 1.0, you get fixes and stuff free on that version, then you make version 1.1 and charge a small fee).

    - Make quarterly serial number changes for customers via email, and make a call to Fusion to tell the user your serial code has been updated please enter the new one sent to your email phone or profile in the forum)

    - Every time a user builds an app they have to enter a code that is sent to their mobile phone number.

    - If Clickteam servers detect an app has been built on a torrented version of Fusion, Fusion then builds the app fully, but in every frame, there is a massive pirate sign so the user cannot play the app.

    - Make Fusion a rental app, implementing a fee to use it ever year.

    That's about it from me.

    Kreedem - most of those suggestions just punish legitimate users and can all be circumvented by pirates anyway.. it's still entirely possible to crack "always online" protection

    If my internet cuts out I can no longer do any work? No thanks.
