I know I’ve not updated my script for a long time – I don’t even play the game anymore, as it lost appeal quickly thanks to the mighty Castle Paywall Ubisoft has erected – but today I thought I could give it one last update before I officially abandon it. Well, looks like I’ll have to do that regardless, as Ubisoft seems to have caught on to my “tricks”. After adapting to the new launcher, trying to log in via the script always resulted in this screen:
Yep, that’s a ReCaptcha right inside the launcher window, and that’s something I can’t possibly have my script sail past. Manual login attempts went through without a hitch.
I’ve tried working around it by adding some kind of randomness to the mouse and keyboard input my script simulates, but the captcha prevailed, so I give up. It’s just not worth my time to play cat and mouse with Ubisoft and their shitty launchers.
