    It's not just support that's different between the free and subsciption-based SDK. New features (like Physically-Based Shading) will only be available to subscribers, the free SDK won't get them (source: http://www.cryengine.com/news/crytek...ervice-program)

    Good

    Free version = no/less support and no source code of the engine

    Just FYI, I am not a game developer and not intending to be, so no pirating will happen from my side. I am just trying to understand the difference between the two versions.

    Ha, the usual "can I pirate gamemaker and only buy when I'm ready to release" trail of thought.

    Nothing is stopping you from doing this. But you won't get any support in the first 11 months and don't have the source code of the engine.
    Another thing is that if you use someones stuff and gain money from this you should give them their piece of the cake. This is just common sense, because if they don'T get their money, they will stop doing their stuff and everyone loses, but nowadays this doesn't seem to be something you take for granted.

    Crytek offers commercial developers full source licensing for larger and longer term projects that benefit from a real partnership with Crytek. Platinum Support packages are also available, with dedicated support staff, increased on-site presence and even co-development of features that interest our licensees.

    Usual proprietary stuff.

    It's a trap.
