The word ‘DarkSide’ can be quite confusing when it comes to BitTorrent. That’s because it has many meanings. DarkSide was the name of a well hidden but widely sought after Hungarian private torrent tracker (now defunct). It is also the name of an online forum (DarkSide_RG) that’s home to many well known P2P encoders and rippers. Today’s post is about the latter. DarkSide_RG is a private community and a torrent forum for movies, TV show, audio files, games and more. It is the birthplace and home of many well known P2P rippers such as aXXo, Release-Lounge and even KVCD groups such as UKB.
First things first - DarkSide Release Group (or DarkSide_RG) is not a private tracker. It’s not even a public tracker. It’s an online forum which hosts .torrent files and for various movies, music and game releases. Like most private communities out there, DarkSide looks just like a regular discussion forum to the unregistered user. The site’s torrent forum will only be visible once you register an account and log in.
Speaking of the torrent forum, this is where all the ‘good sh1t’ is. DarkSide has several kick ass encoders and rippers including some popular names in the BT community such as aXXo. DarkSide is aXXo’s real home and his releases are always made available first via this forum. By the way, aXXo hasn’t been active lately – his last login on site is 19th July 2009 - 03:44 PM so any aXXo release you downloaded after that stand a good chance of being gay pron. In addition to aXXo, some pretty well known rippers such as HellRaiser, FLAWL3SS RG, Konzilla RG, UKB Release Group, `jedi and many others have joined hands with DRG. Screenshot below shows part of their torrent forum:
As mentioned earlier none of the torrents are tracked by DarkSide; External trackers such as TPB and H33T are are used instead. Indexed torrent files however are hosted by DRG itself. And of course, with a registered user base close to 160000 members, DarkSide forums are pretty active. If you can’t find anything to download, you can always join in on the discussion – there’ll always be various threads open in the ‘Community Forums’ and ‘Reviews and Discussions’ section.
Public registrations for DarkSide are currently open. It’s almost always been open during the past couple of years and there are no signs of this changing anytime soon. DarkSide is actually a great place to discover new, non fake releases that would otherwise be difficult to find just by searching a torrent index. Check it out.
