Capcom releases a new ENIGMA system that’s supposed to serve as DRM software to prevent piracy. To the bemoaning of PC gamers as many have had their qualms and complaints about DENUVO. Being fully aware that this directly impacts game performance. But further than that, it has been seen to be blocking mods from loading on their games. The new software is retrofitted towards even older releases, causing issues for anyone that is laying Capcom games on PC. Where it can be a noticeable drop in framerate, or having their old mods suddenly failing to work.

Capcom has openly stated several times that they do not take well to mods, and claim that it can be misrepresenting the games they create.  They have also recently begun striking channels that are featuring their games while making use of mods.

Capcom’s stance on mods is that all of them can not be allowed. Stating that they can be used to cheat in games, even if they’re only cosmetic types, that customize models or effects within a game that have no impact on gameplay, or allows players to skip cutscenes.
