Dark Sector is a 3rd person shooter which was initially released for the consoles back in 2008. The PC version of Dark Sector was released on the 22nd of January in Russia and the game has now leaked on BitTorrent. The leaked release by NoGrp (independent p2p release) appears to be a Russian version of the game which has optional English audio. The release includes a full DVD ISO of the game as well as tools to emulate the Starforce anti piracy system.
Unlike most releases, Dark Sector does not include a cracked exe. However an anti StarForce driver which can bypass the protection in included (this driver is known to have problems with 64-bit operating systems). Since the leaked release is a Russian version of the game, every installation will have Russian audio, voices and text by default. Audio language however is easily changeable:
How to change game language from Russian to English in Dark Sector
- Install the game
- Browse to the game’s installation folder.
- Open DS.cfg file. Open this file with a text editor.
- Locate the line App.Language=ru. Change this to App.Language=en and save the file.
- Now the audio will be english but in game text will still be Russian.
The method above works both on legitimate and pirated copies of Dark Sector.
Although Dark Sector is not a hugely popular game, I’ve seen a lot of positive comments of it on various gaming forums. There are no reviews of the PC version yet on Gamerankings but the PS3 and XBOX360 versions of the game have received decent scores of 72% and 73% respectively.
Dark Sector was initially leaked on P2P networks (non scene). Already there are several public and private torrent trackers tracking this release.
