While some players didn't have a problem with Resident Evil Village's performance on the PC, others did reported regular stuttering, especially when swarms of flies appear during head fights and enemies catch the player for a bite, as well as during cut scenes, when enemies die and in the village market area.
A pirated RE8 version of the Empress cracker claims to have solved these problems by ignoring the Denuvo DRM. The Empress's notes on crack say, "All the blinds in the game like killing a zombie are fixed because Capcom DRM's [chapter] points are corrected, so most of its functions never run again "and" the worst thing is that your DRM was completely obscured in Denuvo's virtual machine, making it run even slower ".
You can see the differences in performance illustrated in the video above, in which the broken game works much more easily. Still, it’s worth pointing out a couple of things. The first is that the two sources were captured with different versions of Nvidia GPU drivers installed: the retail version is playing with 466.63 and the broken version is running on 471.11, which was released 19 days ago after. More significantly, the broken version completely lacks the vampire bite animations and, according to the YouTuber who captured the images, there are other head attacks as well.
