Smart Projects ISOBuster is without a doubt one of the best optical disk data recovery software currently available. I’ve been using it for the past two years and can personally recommend it to anyone in need. IsoBuster can recover data from damaged or scratched optical disks with ease. From older Video CDs and data CDs to modern Blu-Ray disks, IsoBuster supports a wide variety of optical disk formats. Just insert a CD, DVD or a Blu-Ray disk and mount it in ISOBuster. You will get access the disk’s file system, session details and track information. If a part of the disk is damaged beyond recovery, chances are that you will still be able to recover undamaged clusters (this works great with some video files). You can sometimes access session details lost due to malfunctioning burning software or hardware. Of course, don’t expect miracles from ISOBuster; If you insert a disk that is ripped in half ISOBuster wouldn’t be able to do squat with it. And if ISOBuster can’t recover it, it’s unlikely that any other software can.

isobuster pro

Developer Description

IsoBuster is a highly specialized yet easy to use optical media data recovery tool. It supports all optical disc formats and all common optical disc file-systems. Start up IsoBuster, Insert a disc, select the drive (if not selected already) and let IsoBuster mount the media. IsoBuster immediately shows you all the tracks and sessions located on the media, combined with all file-systems that are present. This way you get easy access, just like explorer, to all the files and folders per file-system. Instead of being limited to one file-system that the OS picks for you, you have access to "the complete picture". Access data from older sessions, access data that your OS (e.g. Windows) does not see or hides from you etc.

Deep Freeze from Faronics software is an interesting application. We’ve posted about this app before but it’s worth a mention again (besides this is a newer build). With Deep Freeze, you can essentially bulletproof your system from unwanted changes. That is, the changes you make to your computer’s software configuration will not be permanent with this software installed. No more junk registry entries, threats from viruses and you are even protected from accidental changes to settings. This could come in extremely handy for computers in internet cafes, libraries, universities and other public institutions. Also, if you are at home and want to experiment with ‘odd’ software without risking a system reinstall, this app will be useful.

deep freeze

Developer Description

Faronics Deep Freeze helps eliminate workstation damage and downtime by making computer configurations indestructible. Once Deep Freeze is installed on a workstation, any changes made to the computer—regardless of whether they are accidental or malicious—are never permanent. Deep Freeze provides immediate immunity from many of the problems that plague computers today—inevitable configuration drift, accidental system misconfiguration, malicious software activity, and incidental system degradation.

Deep Freeze ensures computers are absolutely bulletproof, even when users have full access to system software and settings. Users get to enjoy a pristine and unrestricted computing experience, while IT personnel are freed from tedious helpdesk requests, constant system maintenance, and continuous configuration drift.

Good news if you are a movie pirate! An R5 rip of the popular movie starring Seth Rogen, ‘Zack and Miri Make A Porno’ has leaked to internet. This was initially released by BaLD, a well known group from the warez scene. Video source of the leaked release is apparently from an R5 DVD (DVD for region 5). BaLD have replaced the Russian audio in the original DVD with an English audio stream obtained from a previous English TeleSync release (hence the LiNE tag). It comes as a 1CD (700MB) XViD encoded rip. This release has already made its way from top of the piracy pyramid (scene topsites) to lower levels such as public BitTorrent trackers. Given the popularity and high rating of this movie, expect this one to be downloaded a lot of times.

Zack-and-miri-make-a-porno-poster

Description

Lifelong friends and roommates Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) are facing hard times and a mountain of debt. When the electricity and plumbing get cut off, they seize upon the idea of making a homegrown porno movie for some quick cash, enlisting the help of their friends. The two vow that having sex will not ruin their friendship. But as filming begins, what started out as a business proposition between friends turns into something much more.

BitmeTV (BMTV) is definitely one of the best and most sought after private trackers ever. It’s right up there in the list of dedicated TV torrent trackers and it tracks almost every major US/Canadian TV Show currently airing/recently aired. Getting into BitMeTv usually requires and invite. Unlike most private trackers we’ve posted about on FILEnetworks Blog, BitMeTv has had only one open signup for the past 2 and a half years. Finding a BitMeTv  invite is not that easy either, specially if you don’t have a good reputation in invite sharing forums. However, a change in Bitmetv’s invites policy for the month of December 2008 might just have made obtaining a BMTV invite relatively easy, even for novice users.

bitmetv

Generally, if you invite someone into BitMeTv, you are responsible for their actions. If the person who was invited got caught cheating, trading or breaking any other rules, the inviter too may face the consequences. This is what made it so difficult for newbies to get hold of a BMTV invite in giveaways conducted on most invite sharing forums. So here is the good news; I noticed the following posted on BMTV homepage today:

Wanted to invite some friends but have been worried that it might fall back on you badly?
Well, anyone invited during the month of December 2008's inviter will be immune for being responsible for those invites. So invite your friends and say stuff the consequences

This means than during December 2008, BMTV members will be extra generous towards invite requests (if you post in the proper places that is). This will also leave users with relatively low rep (reputation, credits or whatever else that measures your trustworthiness on invite forums) with a standing chance on obtaining a BitMeTv invite. Note that the change on invites policy will not be in effect till the 1st of December 2008 and will end on the 31st of December. Good Luck.

Tehconnection.eu is a private movie torrent tracker which specializes in English movies (US/UK releases mostly). As we reported when the site first went online, Tehconnection is from the same crew behind SceneTorrents (ScT) tracker. This tracker has made some good progress both in terms of indexed torrents and user base for the few months it’s been online. Currently Tehconnection tracks over 3300 active torrents and has a user base in excess of 16000. They have a decent collection of torrents including both scene and non scene releases as well as several great movie packs.

About two months ago we reported that Tehconnection was planning to upgrade to the Gazelle codebase. This however seems to have taken a lot longer than initially expected. Given below is a update from the admins (posted several weeks ago):

So its been a month and Im sure you are all eager for TehConnection Gazelle to go online, well believe us, its coming soon. We aren't going to lie, we hit a few snags with certain aspects of our modification, but that was fixed a few hours ago, its not going to be much longer, you can believe that.

The current layout of Tehconnection is not bad. But TC could achieve a lot more with Gazelle; examples are Passthepopcorn and Wunza -both gazelle based movie trackers. It would indeed be great news if the admins manage to complete the migration without further delays.

Tehconnection signups were closed for some time when the site’s user count hit 16000. Now they have increased the user limit to 16500 which means that around 350 new spots are available for the taking. If you are interested, here is your chance to get into TC. It’s a must have if you are a movie fan.

‘TV Land’ (TVL) shut down

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 11/29/2008 | , | 0 Comments »

On of the largest paytoleech (P2L) sites in existence, TV-Land (TVL), was shut down by Dutch anti piracy group BREIN only two days ago. It’s not operation site down all over again or anything like that but this will still be a blow to at least a few BitTorrent trackers who depended on TV Land for their releases. Pay to Leech (P2L) sites are where you can get access to scene released 0-Day (zero day) for a fee. 

Interestingly, TV-Land was shut down after a scene notice exposed the affiliation between P2P sites and TV-Land. One of the BitTorrent trackers hit hard by the shutdown is SceneTorrents (SCT). ScT is usually one of the first trackers to track scene releases but their pre times suffered greatly during the time TVL was down. BREIN’s press release (you might want to translate it) claims TV Land is the largest topsite ever to be busted - of this I am not so sure. It does not look like any arrests were made but all 3 servers of the site (which were hosted on Leaseweb btw) have reportedly been seized.

This whole incident most likely will not affect ScT in the long run; TV Land was not the only PayToLeech site there existed. New sites go online, some sites get shut down; it’s a vicious cycle.

There is no doubt that ESET’s NOD32/Smart Security and Kaspersky Lab’s Kaspersky Anti Virus (KAV)/Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) are some of the most popular security products currently available on the market. Due to their high popularity, these products are among the list of most pirated security products. In addition to usual workarounds and trial extensions, ‘fans’ have made utilities that crawl the web and automatically retrieve valid usernames and keys for these products. The aim of this post is to shed some light on several such utilities that are currently around (and seem to be the most popular); NodEnabler, NodLogin and Kaspersky Key Finder.

Tools for ESET NOD32 and ESET Smart Security (ESS)

Licensing mechanism of ESET’s security products, namely NOD32 and ESET Smart Security (ESS), is based purely on usernames and passwords (there is no product activation or validation required). The only major difference between trial version and commercial versions of NOD32 and ESS is that you cannot update the trial versions once the 30 day tryout period is over. There have been many hacks and cracks (including 3rd party update servers) to extend the trial period of NOD32 and ESS but ESET has made life difficult for pirates by blocking extended trials and blacklisting 3rd party servers at regular intervals. This is where NodEnabler and NodLogin come in. Instead of merely trying to extend the trial period, these software automatically download daily updated commercial licenses (usernames and passwords that is) from various web sources.

NodEnabler

NodEnabler works with most version 3 (v3) products of ESET Smart Security and NOD32 Anti Virus. What NodEnabler does is that it acquires usernames and passwords for ESET products from the web and inserts them to the program automatically through the system registry. User interaction is not required for the most part; even when a key is expired or blacklisted, NodEnabler would search for a new one and install it automatically. It’s primary source of commercial licenses seem to be www.nod321.com, a Chinese site with daily updated NOD32 and ESS keys which has been around for some time. This means that as long as the site is up, NodEnabler will continue to work fine. If the site goes down, the program will be useless.
Latest version (as of 28/11/2008) – NodEnabler 2.81

NodLogin

NodLogin is another tool similar to NodEnabler; it downloads ESET Smart Security and NOD32 Anti Virus commercial keys from web sources and injects them to the product through the system registry. Unlike NodEnabler, Nodlogin can autodetect the ESET product version installed on your system. This program too has a weakness; it depends on a single, central server to download commercial keys. If this server (which happens to be run by the developer of NodLogin) goes down, so will the effectiveness of NodLogin.
Latest version (as of 28/11/2008) – NodLogin 9.7

Tools for Kaspersky Anti Virus (KAV) and Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS)

Kaspersky security products too need either a working trial (non expired) or a commercial license for definition updates to be downloaded. Products can be activated online using the activation key obtained during purchase or they can be activated using a .key file. The second method (.key file) is the one most commonly exploited by software pirates.

Kaspersky Key Finder 

Kaspersky Key Finder is a utility that downloads .key files for Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) and Kaspersky Anti Virus (KAV) from a web based database of daily updated keys. It’s able to find and download keys for Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti Virus v6, v7 and v8 products. Kaspersky KeyFinder shares the same weakness of NodLogin and NodEnable; it relies on a set of web based servers that contain daily updated keys. These central servers were located on Freewebs (free web hosting provider) and they have all recently been taken down by the host, citing abuse. As of 28/11/2008, the servers remain offline and Kaspersky Keyfinder returns “unable to access database” error.
Latest version (as of 28/11/2008) – Kaspersky KeyFinder 1.5.2d


Other Notes

Most of these tools are detected by Anti virus software as viruses and malware (HackTool, Generic Malware, etc). If you download from their original sources (sorry, download links will not be provided here), these tools do not actually contain any viruses or malware; most of the detections are false positives. Anyway, if you download from untrusted 3rd party sites, there is no guarantee of the files being clean.

7Track.org is a private torrent tracker which indexes general content including movies, music, games, 0-Day releases, appz and TV Shows. It’s a fairly new tracker to enter the BitTorrent scene but 7Track has already managed to secure a significant user base. There are currently nearly 3000 users and close to 800 torrents on this tracker. 7Track is based on the Gazelle codebase. Although gazelle based specialized trackers such as Wunza, PassThePopCorn, LzTr and nTorrents are nowadays a commodity, 7Track is perhaps the only general/0Day tracker to use the new codebase other than Torrentit.

7Track indexes both scene and non scene releases. Apart from individual torrents, there are quite a few unique packs as well.

7track packs 

Being a Gazelle tracker, the layout of 7Track is user friendly and fast. There are currently 2 stylesheets available; sovietski and BlueBit (screenshot above was taken with BlueBit style selected). You seem to get 2 invites upon signup (at least I got 2 when I signed up about a week ago). 7Track registrations are currently open; check it out this tracker looks very promising.

A DVD Screener (DVDSCR) of the latest James Bond movies, Quantum of Solace, has leaked to internet. Despite various efforts by movie studios to prevent leaking of screeners, scene group COALiTION has managed to release a seemingly good copy of the movie. The initial release by COALiTION had the ending missing and it was nuked on group request. They have released a PROPER version and both releases are now on scene topsites and other FTP sites, BitTorrent trackers and also on one click hosting sites across the world. It looks like COALiTiON did a good job on the watermarks and I’m not sure if there are any black and white scene present on this release (and they usually are present on DVD Screeners).

If you are a PC gamer, then you are no doubt eagerly awaiting the release of GTA 4 (Grand Theft Auto IV). Actually, the game’s PC release date is less than a week from now on; it will officially be released in North America (NA) on the 2nd of December and in Europe (EU) on the 3rd of December. Unlike its console counterparts, PC version of GTA4 comes embedded with DRM (Digital Rights Management) software. Yep, you guessed correct; it’s SecuROM. Not just any other version of SecuROM but the online activated, supposedly ‘hard to crack’ variant of SecuROM 7.1.

This essentially means that every legitimate user needs to activate their copy of GTA 4 online in order to play the game. There is however no limit to the number of activations allowed per user and nor are any reactivations required. Embedding a DRM as controversial as SecuROM into Grand Theft Auto 4 is somewhat surprising on Rockstar’s part, especially considering that their last PC release Bully : Scholarship Edition, was completely DRM free.

Anyway, embedding SecuROM into GTA 4 does not mean that pirates won’t crack it. So far, every major PC title of 2008 which used SecuROM protection has been cracked by scene groups such as RELOADED, Razor1911, ViTALiTY and non scene individuals such as DarkC0der. Pirates successfully released DRM removed, modified but working executables (aka cracks) for games such as Spore, Mass Effect, Alone in the Dark, Dead Space, Fallout 3 and many more. Crackers initially had trouble with the new SecuROM and it took them some time to fully crack games such as Mass Effect and Alone in the Dark. But now the protection is somewhat popular and unless SecuROM devs did some major changes to their DRM, expect a cracked version of GTA 4 to surface very soon after (or before, who knows) the game’s official release. And judging by comments on various gaming forums, it’s not just pirates that use cracked exes. Cracks are apparently popular among legitimate buyers who just don’t want SecuROM on their systems.

Speaking of cracked versions, there are many fake GTA 4 torrents floating around in public BitTorrent trackers. Do not be fooled into downloading these; the game has not leaked (yet) and these torrents are most likely viruses, malware or gay porn. When or if GTA 4 does leak, FILEnetworks Blog will be one of the first to update on the news so stay tuned.

Specialized movie torrent tracker PassThePopcorn.org (formerly Scenemovies) has just opened registrations. This is the first time they have opened signups since they moved to a new domain and changed the tracker name to PassThePopCorn. Although the name might sound new, PassThePopcorn did not start from scratch. Entire torrents index and every single user account on Scenemovies was transferred to the new tracker. Currently, there are 4700+ active users and 2250+ torrents on PassThePopcorn. This tracker is based on the shiny new Gazelle codebase so navigation is fast and the site is a pleasure to browse.

As mentioned in the title, Pass The Popcorn is all about movies. Uploaders have done a very nice job of adding some great torrents to this tracker; they’ve only been online for around two months but there are already over 2000 movie torrents indexed. At Passthepopcorn, it’s not just about downloading torrents. You can find a lot of information related to indexed movies through various installed add-ons (Album Art Coverflow, IMDB auto-fill and Actor catalog with 17000+ actors to name a few). You can even discover new movies through the ‘Staff recommendations’ and ‘Collections’ features on this tracker.

Signups are currently open but don’t expect them to stay open forever. Following is from the site homepage:

Registrations have been opened for a short time. Pham is in a giving mood

If you download movies via BitTorrent, PassThePopCorn is a must have tracker. Get in while you can.

Smoking in the Rain (SITR) is a private torrent tracker which tracks general content including movies, TV Shows, Games, E-Books and 0-Day releases. SITR currently tracks over 5000 active torrents including both scene and non scene (p2p) releases; you can find pretty much every major release here. There are currently over 4000 active users on this tracker (out of a total user base of 15000). Something I noticed on SITR’s stats page is that it says ‘Uploaders : 2,055’. I don’t know for sure how many out of these are currently active but they sure do have a lot of uploaders (which means more content).

In addition to individual torrents, SITR has a lot of unique packs such as Movie packs, Complete TV Series Season packs, etc.

SITR packs

Another good thing about SITR is whenever the monthly donation goal is reached, the entire site is put on free leech (only upload is added to your stats) for the rest of the month. They usually reach their donations goal around the 20th of each month so you usually get around 10 full days of free leech every month on SITR. The only concern I have regarding SITR is its layout. It’s definitely usable and navigable but feels a little outdated.

SITR is one of the older private trackers out there. In addition to the torrents, the tracker has a fairly active community of members so don’t forget to check their forum out. The site is currently open for signup and interested readers may join for free. Check it out.

Fallout 3 Killable Children mod released

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 11/25/2008 | | 4 Comments »

If you’ve been playing recently released Fallout 3, you might already know that children in the game cannot be killed. According to game developers the reason why they didn’t include the ability to kill kids is that they didn’t want to ‘cross that line’. Anyway as we previously mentioned, Fallout 3 has a strong modding community and they’ve developed a mod that allows players to kill children in Fallout 3.

This mod is titled Killable Children v1.2. Quoted below is part of the developer’s description of the mod:

This mod enables you to kill any or all of the children in Fallout 3. Keep in mind that due to the fact that you aren't normally supposed to be able to kill children there are some graphical glitches when you kill them. See the screenshots included with the file for more information. As a by-product of what this mod does it also allows you to play a child. For further instructions on how to do this please scroll down.

I tried it out and actually it does work pretty well (I mean the mod, not that I like to kill kids lol). If you want to see how it works before you try it, check out this YouTube video (features a guy with a plasma rifle blasting the crap out of kids).

Download

You can download this mod free of charge from Fallout 3 Nexus (and awaken the kid killer inside you). But if you are not already a member, you need to register first. Then you have to log in and change your member preferences to ‘Allow me to see adult content’ and then only will the mod become visible.

But Conspiracy Central has around 3300 indexed torrents and nearly 12000 registered members (CC’s stats are actually beat most General/0Day trackers out there)

The origin of content on Conspiracy Central varies. It ranges from texts from rather unknown authors to high quality documentaries from premium channels such as The History Channel and BBC. To get a better idea of the content at Conspiracy Central, refer to the screenshot below:

If you’ve been reading FILEnetworks Blog recently, you might remember that we posted about leaked Clone DVDs (Full DVD Images) of games such as Dead Space, NFS : Undercover, Fallout 3 and Red Alert 3. In some CloneDVD releases, it’s actually possible to play the game using a CloneDVD by mounting the image and emulating the copy protection built into the game (This eliminated the need for a crack). Alcohol120% is one such app which can emulate several popular copy protection mechanisms and combined with tools such as Y.A.S.U, it’s one of the software available for mounting Clones and backup images (Similar to Daemon Tools Pro). However, mounting clones is not all Alcohol 120% can do. It can also create disc images and burn created images to physical disks as well. Notable features in the latest build (1.9.8.7117) are ACID wizard and latest SPTD driver.

It was only a day ago we posted about JamToThis, a lossless music and music video tracker. Zomb Torrents is another private torrent tracker which tracks a lot of lossless music and DVD videos of live music, concerts and the likes. It actually has a lot more content and members than JamToThis and has been online for a long time as well. You can find and download a lot of lossless music in SHN (Shorten), FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) and APE (Monkey’s Audio) format from Zomb Torrents. In addition, videos of live shows, concerts and DVDs can also be found on this tracker. ZT allows user uploads (even videos of user recorded concerts) so you are bound to find a lot of unique content on this tracker not found elsewhere. It must be mentioned that Zomb Torrents does not allow sharing of officially released material (unless permitted).

Currently there are more than 105000 registered users on this tracker and around 3500 active torrents. Zomb Torrents has a better search function than most other trackers out there; you can search lossless music by artist, song or band name and you can search videos by name, venue, location or title.

About 3 months ago, we featured Kaspersky Anti-Virus v8.0.0.454 and Kaspersky Internet Security v8.0.0.454 on FILEnetworks Blog. Just recently Kaspersky have released a new build (8.0.0.506) of the security suite with several enhancements to detection technology and a number of other bugfixes. As always, upgrading to the latest version is recommended. I’ve been using this app for the last 3 months (after parting ways with ESET’s NOD32) and so far it hasn’t let me down. Kaspersky has killed every single piece of malware that has come my way. If you have noticed, some security products such as AVG have a lot of false positives specially when it comes to clean key generators and cracks. I’ve experienced a lot less number of false positives with Kaspersky.

Anyway if you have noticed, the title of this post says KIS 2009 v8.0.0.506 + Goodies. In addition to the KIS 2009 installer, it has some nice tools such as KeyViewer, KeyFinder and also a list of sites where you can find keys for Kaspersky products. If you have a machine that does not have an internet connection and rely on offline updates, you’d have to stick with v7.0 (To know where to get offline updates for other Anti Virus software, read this article). Version 2009 (8.0) of Kaspersky security apps do not support offline updating (yet).

Latest version of the popular iPhone jailbreak utility, QuickPWN 2.2 has been released. QuickPWN 2.2 can be used to jailbreak the firmware on iPhone, iPhone 3G and the first generation iPod touch devices (that is, firmware version 2.2). There are many tools out there which can be used to jailbreak the iPhone or iPod touch and QuickPWN is one of the most popular mainly due to it’s user friendly interface. It’s developed by The DevTeam and both Mac and Windows versions of QuickPWN 2.2 have been released.

Genuine Apple iPhone and iPod Touch firmware does not allow installation of 3rd party applications or games by default. A jailbreak is simply a hack used on the file system which once applied allows users to install 3rd party software and games on the device. In most cases this process is harmless but be aware that doing so may void your warranty.

PS2-P is a private torrent tracker that specializes in Playstation 2 (PS2) console games. It’s a fairly new tracker but it already has one of the best PS2 torrents collections in the BitTorrent scene. PS2-P does tracks individual (and newer) games but the site’s main attraction is without a doubt the FULLSETS. FULLSETS are huge packs (usually over 100GB) containing a gazillion games in each one of them. Although the main focus is on PS2 games, that’s not all PS2-P tracks. There are several FULLSETS of PSP (Playstation Portable) games available as well. Apart from the games, this tracker has some of the best available PS2, PSP emulators, Hacks, Mods, DVD Covers and other Tools for the Playstation consoles.

Ps2-P packs

PS2-P has opened public signups several times so far. They have however been setting very small user limits such as 777 so not many were able to get in. It’s open for signups again – we do not for how long or till how many users. Open signups may close anytime so get in while you can.

Full version of Left 4 Dead leaks to internet

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 11/23/2008 | | 0 Comments »

Valve’s highly anticipated zombie shooter Left 4 Dead was susceptible for leaks and hacks since the very beginning perhaps due to the immense media hype the game received. Initially fans found a hack to get into the exclusive early access demo without pre ordering the game and then the actual demo itself leaked to BitTorrent. Now, about 5 days after the game’s official release, a full copy has been leaked to BitTorrent trackers, FTP sites and one click hosting sites around the world. The release comes from SKIDROW, a group from the warez scene who usually release lesser known PC titles. Actually, there have been several leaked versions of the full version of Left 4 Dead floating around in P2P networks for a few days but this is the first release by a scene group.

If you are a pirate and thinking of downloading a torrent of the full version of Left 4 Dead, there is something you should know. Even though you are able to play the single player campaign, you will not be able to play the multiplayer or coop without a valid steam account (online play is usually impossible in modern games if you do not own a legitimate copy). SKIDROW’s NFO does not speak of a crack and in fact Steam protection is very hard to be cracked. Even to play Left 4 Dead over LAN, players need to join through Steam. However, given the game’s popularity, it is likely that there will be many private servers or cracked servers for Left 4 Dead like there is now for Counterstrike and CS: Source. Already, several workarounds including console hacks and no steam servers for Left 4 Dead have surfaced that allow pirates to play the game on LAN but there is no guarantee that Valve will patch these up.

left 4 dead cover

Developer Description

From Valve (the creators of Counter-Strike, Half-Life and more) comes Left 4 Dead, a co-op action horror game for the PC and Xbox 360 that casts up to four players in an epic struggle for survival against swarming zombie hordes and terrifying mutant monsters. Set in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, L4Ds survival co-op mode lets you blast a path through the infected in four unique movies, guiding your survivors across the rooftops of an abandoned metropolis, through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests in your quest to escape a devastated Ground Zero crawling with infected enemies. Each movie is comprised of five large maps, and can be played by one to four
human players, with an emphasis on team-based strategy and objectives. New technology dubbed the AI Director is used to generate a unique gameplay experience every time you play. The Director tailors the frequency and ferocity of the zombie attacks to your performance, putting you in the middle of a fast-paced, but not overwhelming, Hollywood horror movie.

  • Addictive single player, co-op, and multiplayer action
    gameplay from the makers of Counter-Strike and Half-Life
    Versus Mode lets you compete four-on-four with friends,
    playing as a human trying to get rescued, or as a zombie boss
    monster that will stop at nothing to destroy them.
  • An advanced AI director dynamically creates intense and unique
    experiences every time the game is played
  • 20 maps, 10 weapons and unlimited possibilities in four
    sprawling movies
  • Matchmaking, stats, rankings, and awards system drive
    collaborative play

Here is an update on two of the most popular BitTorrent clients currently around.

First up, a new build of Vuze (formerly Azureus) has been released. Build 4.0.0.4 has quite a lengthy changelog This includes a number of bugfixes, several changes and notable new features such as the support for magnet links in search results, subscription support to customizations and ability to change List modes in View menu (full changelog here). As always, upgrading to the latest version is recommended but if you use a lot of private torrent trackers we recommend you first check if version 4.0.0.4 is an allowed client version in your favorite tracker. Some private trackers do not immediately add the latest version to their’ allowed clients list’ as they tend to test out the new version beforehand (For example 4.0.0.4 is not currently allowed in Blackcats-Games or BitmeTV) .

[Click here] to download Vuze 4.0.0.4 from SourceForge (Direct Download)

There is some more good news on the BitTorrent clients front, this time for Mac users. The Mac version of uTorrent is due to be released very soon.

utorrent for mac

The official page for the utorrent Mac client (http://mac.utorrent.com) is now live. If you leave your E-mail address along with your OS X version, you will be notified the moment Mac client is released to the public.

AOM Killer (AOMK), a private torrent tracker dedicated to magic related content, has returned after several days of downtime. As reported in our previous post, the site is now hosted on a new domain (www.aomk1.com). AOMK has occasionally been up and down in the past two months and according to a forum post by administrator the reason for last downtime was the site getting hacked (there have been plenty of controversies surrounding this tracker since their birth). AOMK seems to have lost the entire user base and torrents during the downtime. The good news is that the site is currently open for signup and every old member (and new members of course) can re-register:

YOU MUST CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT (IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED AS THIS IS A NEW SITE)!

A news post by the admin also says:

when i get the time i will restore every 1s ratios from the old aomk. in the mean time please lets get things back on track then look to a bright aomk future

They are also in the process of adding new torrents.

If you were not aware of the content in this tracker, AOMK has magic related videos, TV shows, Ebooks and movies (see screenshot below):

AOMK torrents

Currently there are only about ~150 users and 120+ torrents on the tracker but expect these stats to increase rapidly as news about the site’s return spreads. As said before the signups are open and if you like magic, you’ll definitely want to check this tracker out.
