[News] [PC]

So you're in Europe right and you were one of those that went to get Alone in the Dark today only to find that it's coupled with the bane of gamer existence, SecuRom. Whatever are you going to do? Because we know it simply does not work 90% of the time. It's the ultimate in game copy protection because it makes the original game unplayable.

Anyway, here are some hints from those idiots...I mean the fine makers of SecuRom and Atari. 

Atari and Eden Games’ Alone in the Dark for PC is certified Games for Windows and is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.

The PC version of Alone in the Dark is protected using SecuROM online activation. This requires that in addition to the content on the game disk, players download an additional component via an internet connection in order to install and run the game. Once the game has been correctly installed and activated, it can be played whilst offline.

To install the game on a different computer, players must revoke the serial number when uninstalling from the first machine (this is an automatic option during the uninstall process).

For activation instructions and more information on the revoke system and license use, please go to the SecuROM FAQ at

PC minimum spec is as follows:

Operating System: Windows XP/Vista 32-bit & 64-bit
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz or Athlon X2 +3800 (Intel Pentium 4 3.4 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 +4000 recommended) *
Memory: 1 GB RAM (2GB recommended)
Hard Disk Space: 9.5 GB free
DVD-ROM Drive: 4X speed or faster
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 7600 or ATI Radeon X1950 or better (NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX or ATI Radeon X1950 XTX or better recommended)
Sound: DirectX version 9.0c-compatible sound card
DirectX: DirectX version 9.0c (included) or higher

Well gee that sure sounds much easier than it was in the past where you had to open a portal to hell by pouring a litre of your own blood into the USB ports on your machine and then chant "Klaatu, Berata, Nikto" a million times just to get an audience with the Prince of Darkness (who happened to make SecuRom you know) and beg for eternal damnation so that you might get to play the game you just recently purchased. Maybe the SecuRom thing is all just a conspiracy to keep us from actually playing our games and it's spearheaded by none other than former Florida "lawyer" Jack Thompson...I knew the Prince of Darkness looked familiar.
