    Default Hearts of Iron 4

    Hey, I've recently been playing a game called hearts of iron iv with a friend of mine and think its quite fun.
    not the normal fps kinda game as its a historical rts kind of game, so was wondering if someone owns or is
    interested in playing the game as it would differently be better with more players (countries) to participate.
    in the battle of world war 2.

    If it hasn't been removed yet that game contains a data mining tool (spyware if you will) called Red Shell. It mines data from your PC and transfers it to a 3:rd party. Lots of developers use it without you knowing. Imo its nothing but data theft and should be illegal. You can easily block Red Shell from connecting to its server by editing your hosts file (as administrator)

    Just add this to the file (or any other address you want to block)

    127.0.0.1 redshell.io
    127.0.0.1 api.redshell.io
    127.0.0.1 treasuredata.com
    127.0.0.1 in.treasuredata.com
    127.0.0.1 api.treasuredata.com

    It loops back any connection attempts to your local address. Requires a reboot on Windows. Have fun not being mined by Red Shell

    Read more about Red Shell and who uses it here https://www.reddit.com/r/civ/comment..._vi_is_on_the/
    It's open season for MOOSE !

    Thank you, but I believe I read an article about paradox removing Red Shell from all of their games before I downloaded the game from humble bundle.

    :-)
