Does Riddick still activate, install, play on Steam?  Heard something about some DRM that required access to an external server that no longer exists.  Thought someone else said that was taken off with later copies, just want to make sure before buying.

 

Thanks!

Ghostbusters is a great game. Really underappreciated!

Looks like Riddick still wouldn't activate on Steam as of ~8 months ago. :(

It activates on Steam if you buy it from Impulse. Lots of people have confirmed it. Tages DRM is still present though. Only place you can get a DRM-free copy is GOG.

The webpage says it's version 1.0 and uses TAGES DRM in addition to Steam.  Based on that, it wouldn't activate (as in actually run after installation), but maybe the underlying file isn't actually using TAGES DRM.  It may only be $5, but not desirous to throw $5 away to find out first-hand. :/

If you're talking about the TAGES activation.. then yeah, that's a common issue. This fix works for some people (but not all):

BTW, you might wanna check the disccussion board for the game rather than the old steam powered forums.. they're more recent.

Actually, yes, you can! I paid $9.99 for it last night too, and when I saw it was down to $4.99 I sent a quick email to support. Just include your order # and payment method, and politely explain that since the price went down so soon after buying it, you'd like a price adjustment. I did this at 12:44PM today, and got $5 refunded to my PayPal at 6:49PM. Very impressed with GS' customer service this time (never thought I'd say that!)

Any problems w/ Steam-version of Riddick: Dark Athena?

Is the Tages DRM-check still there?

We don't play games on CAG; we backlog 'em. ;)

No wonder we have no time to play games!

All we do is keep buying games; run games idly for cards; keep backlogging games; & talk about games on CAG Forums + gaming forums like it.

Yeah, it's still there.  :bomb: But I was able to activate it with no problems at all. Still, I'm going to bump this game up near the front of the backlog in case those authentication servers up and vanish.

 

Also, this game has THE most fucked-up video options I've ever seen. I can't find any way to set it at 1080p no matter what I do!

My order for Ghostbusters has been cancelled for no reason 5 times in a row now. I give up.

 

I'd be willing to trade my Riddick for a copy of Ghostbusters if anyone manages to get an extra.
