WinRAR 3.80 Final Download

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/30/2008 | | 2 Comments »

I know a lot of you folks were waiting for this release. After 5 betas, the final version of WinRAR 3.80 is here. This is somewhat of a major upgrade over existing 3.71 version and incorporates a number of bug fixes as well as several new and improved features such as decompression support for WinZip AES encrypted ZIP files and Improved Unicode support for RAR and ZIP archive names (For a full list of changes in 3.80, please refer the changelog).

WinRARv380

Developer Description

WinRAR is a 32-bit Windows version of RAR Archiver, an archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually compress content by 8 percent to 15 percent more than ZIP files can. WinRAR's main features include strong general and multimedia compression, the ability to process non-RAR archive formats, ZIP compression and decompression, support for long filenames, programmable self-extracting archives (SFX), repair of damaged archives, authenticity verification, embedded file comments, and encryption. Unicode is supported in archive filenames, allowing non-English filenames to be handled painlessly. You can manipulate the parameters of many archives at once and view a volume sequence as a single archive. WinRAR can convert other archive formats to RAR and search for specified text and files in archives.

Version 3.80 adds decompression support for AES-encrypted ZIP files, improved display information, more context-menu options, and a more secure method of deleting temporary files.

Major Features

  • Complete support for RAR and ZIP archives, and unpacking of ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7z and Z archives. Future versions of WinRAR are planned to include 7z creation.
  • The ability to create self-extracting and multi-volume (split) archives.
  • Data redundancy is provided via recovery records and recovery volumes, even allowing reconstruction of damaged archives.
  • Support for advanced NTFS file system options and Unicode in file names.
  • Optional archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a 128-bit key.

This should not have come as a surprise for you if you were a regular member of Blackcats-Games (BCG). If you logged onto Blackcats today, you would see a fake page instead of the familiar login page. Don’t worry, it’s not shut down or anything; this was intentional and is done for security reasons and to launch the upcoming referrals feature. Although tracker staff gave much publicity regarding homepage replacement, unique key generation and how to use the key and the fake page to login to the tracker, many users seem to have skipped reading all these (judging by the amount of mail we receive asking what to do with the fake page).

First of all, if you did not generate a key as instructed by many PMs, announcements and forum posts, say good bye to your account. According to site admin the accounts the did not generate a key will be deleted. If you did generate a key earlier, read on.

Here is how to use the fake login page to get access to Blackcats-games:

1. Visit the login page and enter your keyword in the search box.

2. The moment you type in your key word correctly, two boxes, one each for username and password will appear at the bottom of the page.

3. Type in your Blackcats username and password in these boxes and press enter. That’s all.

To login successfully, all three elements should match; your key, username and the password.

A DVDRip of the popular 2008 movies Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has been leaked to internet. Responsible for this leak are DiAMOND, a legendary group in the movie release scene. DiAMOND have been relatively quite for the past few weeks but it seems they chose a popular title to mark their comeback. The release comes as a 2CD (1.38GB) rip and it has DVD quality video and 5.1 AC3 sound. For more details on this release including screen caps, NFO and more, please see this page.

Speaking of the movie, it has a decent 7.0 rating on IMDB. As a fan of the old movies, I would definitely watch this.

Indiana_jones_Crystal_Skull_poster

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a 2008 adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg and executive produced and co-written by George Lucas. The film pits Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) against agents of the Soviet Union, led by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett), in the search for a crystal skull. Indy is aided by his former lover Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), greaser Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf), and fellow adventurer George "Mac" McHale (Ray Winstone). John Hurt and Jim Broadbent also play fellow academics.

The film was in development since the 1989 release of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, because Spielberg and Ford disagreed over Lucas' original concept. Screenwriters Jeb Stuart, Jeffrey Boam, Frank Darabont and Jeff Nathanson wrote drafts, before David Koepp's script satisfied all three men. Shooting began on June 18, 2007, and took place in New Mexico; New Haven, Connecticut; Hawaii; Fresno, California; and soundstages in Los Angeles. To keep aesthetic continuity with the previous films, the crew relied on traditional stunt work instead of computer-generated stunt doubles, and cinematographer Janusz Kamiński studied Douglas Slocombe's style from the previous films.

Universal Extractor is a small but useful tool that allows users to extract files from virtually any type of archive. By ‘archive’ we don’t mean a .Zip or a .RAR archive; In addition to support for several dozen compressed file formats, Universal Extractor can even extract files from compiled setup packages such as Windows Installer packages, FEAD optimizer packages (used by Adobe), Microsoft hotfixes and even Nero Image files. We’ve featured two versions of this program in this post; The Portable version and the regular version. See the ‘Downloads’ section below for download links.

Universal Extractor_screen

Developer Description

Universal Extractor is a program do to exactly what it says: extract files from any type of archive, whether it's a simple zip file, an installation program, or even a Windows Installer (.msi) package. This is still a work in progress, but so far it's proven quite useful and I feel others can also benefit from it.

I should stress that Universal Extractor is not intended to be a general purpose archiving software. It will never replace WinRAR, 7-Zip, etc. What it will do is allow you to extract files from virtually any type of archive, regardless of source, compression method, etc.
The original motivation behind this project was that I wanted an easy, convenient way to extract files from installation packages, such as Inno Setup or Windows Installer packages, without pulling up a command line every time. In the process I got a little carried away and ended up throwing in support for every kind of archive format I possibly could find.

Here is a newer build of AVG Internet Security. Unlike the Anti-Virus, Internet Security suite comes with several components not only to detect viruses but to prevent hacking attempts, privacy protection, spam blocker and to detect rootkits. From my little experience with this product, Internet Security seemed to consume a moderate amount of system resources. As for detection rates, it’s nothing bad but I prefer the superior detection rate of Kaspersky Anti-Virus over this. But that is not to say AVG is a bad product. Give it a try.

Popular dedicated movie torrent tracker Tehconnection.eu has increased it’s user limit from 15000 to 30000. The site is currently open for signup and new members may join for free. Tehconnection currently tracks nearly 2900 torrents and has a little over 15000 members. It is a must have resource if you are a movie lover.

A mass PM sent to site users claim that they plan to migrate to Gazelle codebase soon:

Gazelle & Free Leech/Double Upload!
We on staff would like to thank all of you for your dedication in making TehConnection a premier movie-themed tracker. We understand that over the past few months the site has not evolved as quickly as some of you'd have liked, and moreso as quickly as we'd have liked. But that's what we're here to talk about.

In four weeks we will be migrating to Gazelle. This has been a long time coming, and we are all eagerly anticipating the changes to come. Some of you might have experience using Gazelle-based trackers elsewhere, so you'll know firsthand what to expect. We expect the transition to go smoothly, however there will inevitably be some hiccups, and they will be dealt with on a priority basis (as always).

For the next few weeks however, we've enabled free leech and double upload on all newly uploaded torrents! We want you guys to start leeching and uploading new torrents as if your Net connection is gonna get cut off at the end of the week! This isn't just a gimmick - we're doing this because all of YOU have stuck with us throughout the summer, and you deserve it. Remember that Hit & Run rules still apply.

Lastly, a reminder for those who are unaware - when you join our IRC channel on P2P-NET.eu using the instructions found here, the IRC Idle Bonus will kick in, and you'll be earning yourself 10MB/hour just for idling! It couldn't get any easier!
Thanks to everyone for sticking in there with us - the best that TehConnection has to offer is still to come!

As you may have noticed from above, admins have also enabled double upload and free leech on all new torrents so register your account now and start downloading/uploading!

Private torrent tracker FileBits.org is currently open for signup. It’s Slovenian tracker which indexes a lot of scene releases. Although the tracker is of Slovenian origin, most of the torrents it tracks are English. The interface however is in Slovenian language but even if users who don’t know anything about Slovenian should be able to find their way around. From what we saw from the download speeds and pre times, FileBits seem to be a decent general tracker.

Filebits tracks nearly 4000 torrents and has 9950 users at time of this post. This tracker has a user limit of 10000 which means there are only around 50 more spots left. If you want to become a member, we suggest you register ASAP as the signups will close once the user limit is reached.

I’ve had the misfortune of losing data several times due to hardware failure (and due to the lazyness to back up data).  Here is a nice little program that may save your ass in the event of a data loss due to hardware failure or physical damages. AnyReader can read corrupted or damaged CDs, DVDs, LAN-Drives, flash memory, ZIP disks and floppy disks and recover the data which the operating system is unable to read. If you are getting CRC errors while trying to copy data from your discs or if it takes an unusually long time to copy data from/to your discs, try using AnyReader. I wouldn’t say that this app would work miracles and recover data from a smashed up hard drive but it sure does work is less serious cases.

Anyreader

Developer Description

Effectively copies corrupt data from any type of disks or erroneous connections if standard copying methods fail. AnyReader supports resumed downloads from the remote PC if the connection was broken during the copy process (especially useful for unreliable Wi-Fi networks). AnyReader is great for copying files from scratched CD/DVDs or defective floppy/hard disks. Normally when your computer is unable to copy files from a damaged disk it will abort and delete the part of the file it has copied. AnyReader will continue copying the file right to the end; any data that hasn't been recovered after several retries is replaced with blanks. This will allow you to effectively read every byte of information that can be read at all.

Here are some situations where AnyReader can help:

  • Your CD/DVD drive can't read bad, scratched or trashed disks;
  • The standard copying method fails because of an error, such as "(Bad CRC) A cyclic redundancy check (CRC) checksum error occurred", "Cannot read from the source file or disk", an unknown error or a bad disk;
  • You have 2 bad copies of a file that you would like to put right;
  • You can't download a file across wireless LAN because of a bad connection;

Features

  • Reads files from disks with physical damage.
  • Allows you to copy files from disks with problems such as bad sectors, scratches or that just give errors when reading data.
    • Reads data as much as possible.
  • Reads data from the erroneous network connections. It supports resumed downloads from the remote PC if connection was broken during the copy process.
  • Support file sizes up to file system limits.
  • Easy to use, intuitive wizard-driven interface.
  • Supports all modern Windows versions, including Windows® NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista.
  • and many more!

Scenemovies is a brand new torrent tracker that specializes in movies. It is one of the few trackers out there that uses the new Gazelle codebase. At a glance, it may seem like yet another start up scene release movies tracker with a cool interface but not much content. But we think there is a lot of promise in Scenemovies.

Although the tracker is named Scenemovies, it’s not all about scene releases. In fact, it’s primary focus is on user uploaded content. Below is a notice posted by the administrator:

The tracker is now online. Please begin to upload! We will be relying primarily on community based uploading. Seasoned uploaders will have benefits to pre-releases as they become available.
Leech-n-runs will be banned.

User uploads could work both ways. If unregulated, it could result in the tracker being flooded by fakes and low quality releases. But with adequate moderation, user uploads could create a tracker with lots of content both rare and new and often not seen on other similar trackers. It’s too early to tell how Scenemovies will turn out as it’s only about a month old. But the intentions of the admins seem to be good and the site is well worth checking out.

Lots of US TV shows have begun airing brand new episodes these days. And most of these episodes make their way to torrent sites. Rather than trying (most of the time, unsuccessfully) to get into high level TV trackers such as BitmeTV, why not start with something that is fairly easy to get into? FeedTV is one such tracker that is an excellent place to start your hunt for TV Shows. It’s a Sweden based tracker with over 8000 users and over 1000 active torrents. The Swedish language interface may be a turn off for non Swedish users but most of the content FeedTV tracks is in English. Don’t worry; it does track popular shows such as Prison Break, Lost and Heroes. Non Swedish users should however watch out for torrent titles that contain ‘SWEDiSH’ tag as usually this is an indication of the torrent having Swedish audio.

The tracker is currently open for signup so interested readers may join for free. If you are having trouble understanding the signup page (its in Swedish), we’ve provided a brief translation below.

For example, the Message Center drives me crazy with it’s constant flow of pop up messages. Luckily this (and most other unwanted features) can be disabled. A welcome addition in newer versions of RealPlayer is the Browser Record plugin. This allows easy downloading of embedded flash video content on sites such as Youtube.

R5 of Righteous Kill leaked to P2P

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/25/2008 | | 0 Comments »

If my memory is correct, this movie was just released in the US. It’s surprising for an R5 rip of the to surface this early but it sure looks like the real deal. The rip has already made it to Usenet and private torrent trackers (and of course it’s leaked from scene topsites as usual) and will soon make it to public tracker such as TPB. Veteran scene group PUKKA is behind the release of Righteous Kill R5 so very few people will have doubts about this given PUKKA’'s reputation. For more information about this release including screens and .NFO, please see this link.

Righteous_kill_ver2

IMDB Plot Synopsis

Academy Award® winners Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) and Al Pacino (Scent of a Woman) star as a pair of veteran New York City police detectives on the trail of a vigilante serial killer in the adrenaline fueled psychological thriller Righteous Kill, directed by Jon Avnet (Red Corner, Fried Green Tomatoes) and written by Russell Gewirtz (Inside Man). The cast also features hip-hop superstar Curtis Jackson (Get Rich or Die Tryin).

After 30 years as partners in the pressure cooker environment of the NYPD, highly decorated Detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan should be ready for retirement, but arent. Before they can hang up their badges, they are called in to investigate the murder of a notorious pimp, which appears to have ties to a case they solved years before.

Like the original murder, the victim is a suspected criminal whose body is found accompanied by a four line poem justifying the killing. When additional crimes take place, it becomes clear the detectives are looking for a serial killer, one who targets criminals that have fallen through the cracks of the judicial system. His mission is to do what the cops cant do on their owntake the culprits off the streets for good. The similarities between the recent killings and their earlier case raise a nagging question: Did they put the wrong man behind bars?

Knight Rider 2008 Season 1 – Episode 1

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/25/2008 | | 2 Comments »

I was waiting for this ever since the pilot aired. I used to watch every single episode of the 1982 TV series in all four seasons. Then there was Team Knight Rider which I think sucked big time and had no real connection to the original storyline. That makes the 2008 series the first true sequel to 1982’s Knight Rider so I hope this show survives for several seasons just like the original. The 2 hour pilot of the 2008 series looked good (except for the ford ‘advertisements’) and the first episode looks even better. Needless to say that there are torrents of this episode all over the web and you may search for one using the links in Downloads section below.

DigitalHive (DH) is a private torrent tracker that tracks general/0day content. The site is usually invite only but at the moment it has open signups so new members may get in without the need of an invitation code. Digital Hive has been around for some time and it’s user base now exceeds 20000. There are over 100 active torrents on the tracker both scene and non scene releases.

Apart from common content you can almost find on any other general tracker, DH has several excellent packs of their own.

DH_Packs

Image: Some of the packs at DH

Watch for the ‘–DH’ tag in torrent title to identify packs unique to DH. Another good thing about DH’s packs is that most of them are on free leech. This ensures the packs are well seeded and have extended lifetime. On the other hand freeleech packs can be used to increase your overall share ratio.

DigitalHive is currently open but it has a reputation of closing signups quickly. If you want to get in, you may want to hurry.

Lego Batman cracked by ViTALiTY

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/24/2008 | | 0 Comments »

More trouble for SecuROM as more scene groups show their ability to pwn the DRM protection repeatedly. Group ViTALiTY, after having a relatively silent month, have surfaced with a cracked version of Lego Baman which was released a day before in North America. There was a CLONEDVD of this game earlier today by scene group PROCYON. ViTALiTY release includes a fixed exe which has the SecuROM DRM removed (Lego Batman uses SecuROM 7.37.0014 ).

EGO Batman: The Videogame brings the one-and-only Caped Crusader to life in a completely original storyline. Players will take control of the Dynamic Duo, Batman (Bruce Wayne) and Robin, as well as bonus hero Nightwing to fight Gotham City’s most notorious criminals including The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, Scarecrow, and many more. Players can also explore their wicked side and fight their way through the game as the villains, experiencing the game from a completely different point of view with all-new criminal objectives. With a collection of high-tech suits, gadgets and cutting-edge vehicles on hand, players are able to step into the unique LEGO Batman universe to bring super villains to justice or, as the villains, to run amok in Gotham City.

legobatman_1

legobatman_2 

Features

  • Each story is playable from either the Hero or Villain point of view. (For example, in the aforementioned levels, you could also play as Catwoman trying to steal the diamond or as Batman trying to rescue Commissioner Gordon.)
  • You’re able to switch characters without being next to each other, unlike in the previous “LEGO Star Wars” games.
  • The camera has been adjusted from the “LEGO Star Wars” series to pan back further and further away (but not too far) when the players are separated in two-player mode.
  • There will be strictly vehicular levels in the game, although Doyle declined to say what they would be. (The press release states that the Batmobile, Batwing and Batboat will be available.)
  • There will be collectibles. While I did see objects that looked like the “mini-kits” from “LEGO Star Wars,” Doyle said those were place-holders. “It will be a similar sort of system [as 'LEGO Star Wars']. The collectibles are different; they’re not to collect vehicles, they’re to collect other trophies. We’re going to design them to be more Batman-style.” There will be 10 per level.
  • The music I heard in the demo was most definitely Danny Elfman’s compositions from the “Batman” films. While Doyle did confirm I was right, the team is still “finalizing the arrangements.”

First of all don’t be mislead by the name; BitSeduce is a not a porn tracker. It’s rather a tracker specializing in variety of lifestyle content such as Food, Cooking, Martial Arts, Business, Languages, etc. As far as I know only other torrent site that is similar to BitSeduce (content wise) is ThePlace.BZ (which is also open at this time).

To get a better idea of the content on BitSeduce, have a look at the categories section below. BitSeduce currently indexes nearly 3000 active torrents and has a use base of 5000. Signups are currently open. Since BitSeduce has a habit of closing its doors within a small time interval, you may want to hurry if you want to become a member.
