These tools are helpful with cracking your own games.

Useful Software:

  • 7zip File Manager - Better than WinRAR.
  • BleachBit - System Cleaner, safer than CCLeaner.
  • Bitwarden - Open Source Password Management Solution.
  • QuickSFV - Verify checksums and generate hash info.
  • WinRAR - Alternative to 7zip.
  • WinCDEmu - Mount ISO files as a virtual drive on your computer.

  • Vapor Store - A store (similar to Steam!) where you can download cracked games!

Not game related, but for Microsoft Products and Adobe Products, go to the backup of r/sjain_guides.

Useful Browser Extensions:

These don't help much with online piracy, but will make your browsing much more private and safe.

  • Decentraleyes
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • Privacy Badger
  • Trace
  • Ublock Origin
  • Universal Bypass


Using a privacy-focused DNS can speed up your browsing experience as well as make your network traffic more secure (NOT a VPN substitute):

More trusted DNS providers can be found here.


Tor is NOT a VPN, it will not protect you when torrenting!

Unsafe software:

  • Bittorrent - Same as Utorrent, has ads, trackers, and is unsafe.
  • Utorrent - Same as Bittorrent, has ads, trackers, and is unsafe.
  • CCleaner - Owned by Avast.
  • Avast - Notorious for collecting and selling user data.

Untrusted sites:

  • IGG Games / PC Games Torrents - they doxxed mercs213 (owner of GoodOldDownloads), package their own DRM in indie games and exploit you for ad revenue.
  • BBRepacks - Fake BlackBox Repacks, contain malware.
  • OceanOfGames - High malware risk.
  • nosTEAM
  • cracked-games.org - Malware Risk.
  • crackingpatching - Malware Risk
  • Pirate Bay - Malware Risk
  • Kickass Torrents - Malware Risk
  • Any site with a scene group name in the URL - SCENE GROUPS DON'T HAVE SITES!

Anybody caught linking a website the moderators deem unsafe will have their comments removed in order to keep people safe on the subreddit!

We will keep this thread updated, so check back every so often!

If you have any recommendations for the Mega Thread, please comment below! Unsafe sites will be removed by the moderators.
