The last Dying Light patch has made it much harder to mod the game. According to the patch notes, the change “blocked cheating by changing game’s data files”, which is good for multiplayer – but it has also affected innocent single-player mods or LAN games.
According to Reddit users, DMCA takedowns have been issued on Dying Lights mods hosted on media sharing websites.
The mods affected were suppose to remove the film grain effect, which is just a simple graphical mod making the game run smoother and easier on eyes. This doesn’t make Techland or Warner Brothers look good at all, but guys you gotta remember that stopping modding is a great way for decreasing the longevity of the game which means… they can sell another one faster ;-)
If you want to mod your game despite of what they say here’s a quick tutorial on how to disable the film grain effect.
