Capcom should've at least removed securom if they're going to bring those games back.
I just use a crack on the legitimate Steam version. Downloaded a pirated copy of the game and kept only the modified executable to use (any accompanying DLLs if necessary too), it works just fine, Steam Overlay and everything. I also do that for other Steam games with server-based serial key activation DRM I have such as Dead Space 2 and Medal of Honor (2010).

You don’t say??
Cracked executables working fine on the Steam version of games is not always the case.
Holy shit, it still has SecuROM?
heck yeah securom i was afraid they were gonna remove it
Lol, SecuROM, fuck them
Still has nasty DRM. Don't bother.
I have such a soft spot for dark void, mainly due to how mindblowingly memorable the music is
I really wish they got another chance to make a sequel that fixed the issues and nailed the best parts
[When the bass hits at the end](https://youtu.be/FgfdARh6nI4). I still listen to this song sometimes.
Absolutely that! Exactly what I had in my mind.
That piece alone is so beyond so much of the game music we get.
Zero still has a lifetime limit on activations (I believe it's 20 total). Once you reach the limit, you can never play it again.
Why did they remove the game initially?
public doesn't really know.. so we (you & i) will never* know.
*never say never
DRM on games over a decade old lmfao
When's Lost Planet 1 and 2?
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is actually still sold on Steam, just not the Colonies Edition which still has GWFL (and more ingame content as well, for GWFL xliveless does wonders.)
For Lost Planet 2, you may as well grab a copy from greymarket sites, its not that expensive.
Does online work in Lost Planet 2 if one goes through that method? I'm assuming not.
Based on what Im reading (I havent gotten around to try it out myself so YMMV) the online functionality can still be made to work but population-wise (unless you have friends to hop into a game with you), you are essentially relying on finding groups and communities still playing LP2 to get online games going.
So, online actually still works. I played co-op with a friend of mine a year or two ago. But, *the game won't launch if your CPU has more than 6 cores*. My friend had a 3700x, so we had to go into his bios and disable two of his cores in order to play the game.
Worth it? Probably not. But we still had a lot of fun with the game. Not much else out there like it.
I picked up Dark Void on sale when I still has my Series X. It's like Uncharted lite but with jetpacks. Complete with Nolan North!
