Written by Admin

Doom Eternal recently got an Update that added Denuvo, which is causing many problems to people like “Constant, massive stuttering, Horrendous screen tearing despite having G-Sync, Locks my 120Hz display at 60Hz, both in-game and on the Windows desktop.”

People are now spamming the Steam reviews of Doom Eternal, the question is what will Bethesda do about it they stated “The issues with Doom Eternal have been resolved. Thank you for your patience.”

But, they were not resolved at all it’s unplayable for many people, ID software even told people how to uninstall Denuvo, but it installs again whenever people try to launch the game.

Denuvo responded to Destructoid with

“The team is working on allowing DOOM: Eternal to be launched for singleplayer offline play without requiring the installation of Denuvo Anti-Cheat. Our motivation is to support users of Valve’s Proton and gamers playing on platforms without administrative access to their machines, such as at work or school. This feature would also be an excellent tool for putting rumors to rest that Denuvo Anti-Cheat has any measurable, let alone perceivable, performance impact via A/B benchmarking.

Denuvo also stated on a Blog Post that “Our Anti-Cheat solution doesn’t have annoying tray icons or splash screens, and this invisibility could raise some eyebrows. Installing files onto your gaming rig deserves full transparency”

  • For denuvo to outright lie and say there is no performance issues with their anti-cheat is offensive. Doom Eternal has NEVER crashed on me until the Denuvo update. In my 40 years of life, I have never seen screen tearing as bad as this. Since the update, my GPU runs about 10-15 degrees hotter and I’ve gone from 120 fps to well under 40 or 50.

    I’m absolutely disgusted they would do this, especially after the controversy surrounding Valorants similar kernel injected anti-cheat.

    I have uninstalled Doom Eternal and await a fix. I never played online anyways so it isn’t fair I should be subjected to this, especially after pre-purchasing all the DLC, something I have never done before.

  • Was going to buy the game, but honestly after what they did with the soundtrack and now this I’m not going to get it. Bethesda somehow managed to ruin a fallout game too.

    • It sounds like Bethesda is the Thanos of the gaming world. Could win the world, but deep down they secretly loathe themselves and manage tobself-defeat.

    • The soundtrack issue was Mick Gordon’s fault for not meeting deadlines (hell he asked for an extension which ID gave) but this Denuvo issue is a different can of worms

  • I haven’t experienced a single issue with Denuvo…I think the problems might be with Nvidia GPU driver and Denuvo. On a 5700xt, it has worked without any issues.

  • Gpu hotter. Screen lag is new, after update. Love to play that game in single player mode. Who am I going to cheat? Hope they fix it soon, or I will uninstall and look elsewhere for games.

  • I run doom eternal fine. Zero preformance issue since the update and none of my monitoring progeams interfere.

    The linux people are sol atm but there probably be a fix soon

    Running 2080ti, i9-9900x, all overclocked and game at 5120×1440 at 120hz.

    • Well with specs like that! Lol! What do you expect. You could probably run 5 different antivirus programs simultaneously (like an idiot) and still not have issues. It’s probably people with decent machines (but not so much overkill) that are having these issues. Still I don’t like kernel embedded software on my machine, especially if its useless to me.

  • I have no issues also running 1080ti with 2950x threadripper and 128gigs system memory. I knew I built it for a reason.

  • I’m not sure why anyone is having problems with this, maybe they’re just idiots? I have a regular ol’ laptop and everything is fine over here.

    I’m pretty sure this is the whole Dunning-Kruger thing happening here.

    Idiots.
