Exclamation "Spyware" dll in P99's patch files.

Playing on P99 should come with a warning of P99 forcing you to download their DLL injection file called "dsetup.dll".

The modification of this file means that they can basically see every window you have open.

So essentially "laws" are being broken to uphold "rules".

Most will probably agree, that that's quite the slippery slope. Or at least everyone actually valueing their privacy or at least their right to privacy.

P99 should probably spend their donation money on a decent lawyer by now, as this is very invasive and quite illegal in most countries.

Just to let everyone know. Carry on.

You agree to the terms by playing here. This is a private server, utilizing private files. All participation is 100% voluntary. No lawyer would touch this with a billion foot pole.

You are insane.

You're quite wrong. Something as intrusive as this at the very least has to be stated very clearly for any participants.

You probably don't, no. To each his or her own. Move along then, thanks.

If you wish to file any case, I'd suggest you contact an attorney in your country of residence. That's entirely up to you.

Same applies to you. FYI this has been this way for about a decade and has been discussed at length by the community repeatedly. Funny thing, the lawyers haven't shown up yet. Maybe you should give yours a call since you're so upset and see how interested they are in taking up the case.

You got me all riled up with talk of broken laws but now you get all shy? You're a terrible fluffer my dude.

You're also quite wrong, I'm not upset in any way. I just want to let everyone know how things are run, since it's not stated clearly anywhere here on the Project 1999 website. As per my original post: "Just to let everyone know".
