    I wonder if there is some code or something that will let me know if the user is executing a cracked version of my game, so I can prepare some "special" stuff for that kind of user. Is that possible for steam games?

    Cracked games don't get updated anymore, so you could just compare version numbers.. ofc you would need the player to allow the connection to do that, and also update main game after cracked version is discovered.

    Check if the game is listed in installed programs?

    I believe @Seabass (The Human) had some copy protection in Don't Sink which he said worked quite well, he may even have been licencing his library but maybe he could offer some advice?

    I do have DRM that I license to people on a case by case basis. It relies on the Steam client but works in both online/offline mode and as of today has not been cracked. Message me if you're interested.
