DarkCoder has done it again! The one man cracking powerhouse has developed a seemingly working crack for Chronicles of Riddick : Assault on Dark Athena. Although a full DVD ISO of this game leaked online right on the release date, DRM embedded in this title held off pirates at bay for nearly a month. Assault on Dark Athena was protected by TAGES + SolidShield – a combination that has proven time consuming to crack on many occasions. The game also had to be activated online. Only three activations were allowed by the DRM on a single copy and this caused an uproar even among die hard fans of the series.
Getting back on topic, DarkC0der’s crack is supposed to be used with v1.1 of Chronicles of Riddick : Assault on Dark Athena. The ‘crack’ comprises of several modified dll files which seem to be related to TAGES client. It is not clear if the protection is bypassed or completely removed (maybe DarkCoder found a loophole in the v1.1 update?). Although I have not tried it myself, comments on various online communities are very much positive towards the crack’s functionality. By the way, TAGES drivers which gets copied during install will still be present on the system even if you use the cracked dll files.
With the release of a crack for Chronicles of Riddick : Assault on Dark Athena, DarkCoder gives out a strong message to his critics – his success with SecuROM PA was not just luck. He has yet again managed to beat scene groups in cracking an extremely difficult modern DRM system that was seemingly invincible until today.
