The Doom Setup that I have is 86.2GB including the doom-cpy and Update 1-to-5 PLAZA..
The update searches for the files while updating, that corepack ripped during repacking. The corepack setup of doom have denuvo in the game while in later updates denuvo was removed and game performance was optimized. Please if you could make a smaller setup of the the complete game "SKIPPING MULTIPLAYER AND SNAPMAP" would be so much help to save the space. _/\_
Essentials for Installing, Playing and Fixing PC Games
This is a quick guide to help avoid the most common of problems one will get when trying to play PC games on a freshly installed OS, or even after installing a few games with the included redist files. Also the best apps to help fix game problems with and information on finding any available fixes.
If you have Windows 32-bit, it's time to upgrade to 64-bit, as many games are now 64-bit only due to higher RAM requirements.
All downloads here are 100% adware and virus free!
CorePacks Game Information
CP V1 - Everything at time of release included | CP V2 - some things removed and/or further compressed.
Prepack - Wait for Crack | Repack - Crack Included
MULTI7 | MULTI9 etc - Which languages are included, usually means just subtitles and interface and audio is in english only, but check the game's steam page as it is usually accurate about included languages.
Always remember to READ the NFO's on the game pages so you know what the repacks contain and disk spaced required etc.
There is more in depth info on NFO's and CorePacks versions here
How to install CorePacks Games Guide - Read this if you are unsure how to install a CorePacks game.
Redists - You need redists to play most games on your PC.
All in One Runtimes Installer - This includes ALL Microsoft Net Framework, Visual C++ and DirectX files. Also installs Java, Flash, Shockwave and Silverlight for your other games and in-browser internet gaming too. Fully automated and works for any Windows OS version.
DirectX Legacy files - Install this to be sure the above installer didn't miss any other DirectX files. This applies to any Windows OS Version.
Ensure you are up to date with your drivers, the GPU, audio and motherboard drivers are the most important for gaming. A quick way to get up and running is to use Driver Booster, but as it tends to install bad drivers for some things, your next step is to manually install your Motherboard, GPU, Audio drivers and any other missing and wrong drivers afterwards to ensure you have the correct drivers and best performance.
Display Driver Uninstaller - DDU is used when updating video card drivers, as you should always uninstall them with windows and then use DDU to ensure a full clean wipe before installing new ones. Download the new DDU everytime you update your video drivers.
Nvidia Physx - Some games need the Physx drivers installed even if you don't have an Nvidia Physx device for allowing CPU calculations of physics in games, some of which work great without FPS slowdowns.
Programs to Install Games - Other apps are NOT recommended! Only use Power ISO to mount and Winrar to extract, this will lead to the least problems!
Power ISO - CD Image mounting software, considered the most useful as it mounts any virtual CD Image you will come across correctly.
Winrar - Archive software, considered the best for extracting due to having the most compatibility with archives, also among the fastest with great multi-core support.
Other Useful Things
Notepad++ - Some game fixes require changes to the games configuration files, opening them with this instead of standard notepad makes it a lot easier.
Registry Workshop - Game fixes can also require editing the registry, this application replaces windows regedit and makes it a lot easier to change registry settings, allows copying and pasting of reg key locations and proper navigation and undo features.
More Stuff - The essentials needed for finding games to install and play here and other stuff.
Low on Drive Space?
Space Sniffer - Uses tiles to represent the size of the folders on your hard drive, making it really fast and easy to recover free space on your hard drive.
Move CorePacks Installation Folder - You can move your temp folder to a drive with more space to help with installation.
Downloading and Installing Cracked Game Prerequisites
Use Jdownloader 2 for direct links as it auto CRC checks for you so you know you got a good download... it also makes direct link downloading as easy as torrents.
1. Before downloading a game or a crack that you are sure is not a virus, disable your anti-virus first.
2. Once you have downloaded and installed your game or crack, add the game folder to your anti-virus exceptions before enabling anti-virus again.
This includes Windows Defender, if you have any other anti-virus software installed, Windows Defender shouldn't even be turned on!
If you had anti-virus turned on by mistake during a torrent download, disable your anti-virus and then force-recheck your torrent to get the crack files back. This also works if you had anti-virus turned on during extraction of game files, just disable anti-virus and extract again.
What if I get Power Cuts and I can't Install a Game in Time?
Don't worry, all is not lost, you can pause your installation by Hibernating your PC!
Best Google to Use
If you don't have google.com... Set this as your homepage, as when you are finding game fixes, cracks, files, torrents... google.com is the one that has them all.
What to do when Trying to Fix a Game Problem
First, believe it or not, as long as your game download is not corrupted or fake, redownloading the same game again is not going to help. The exception to this is getting a game from another repacker if you cannot get the installation to work after trying to fix it.
Once you have a game download that's it, you now have all you need. From here your options are... using a game file verifier, reinstalling the game to fix a bad installation or downloading missing or mismatching files... and downloading crack fixes and updates.
New game release? Be aware that new releases sometimes need crack fixes rather than official game fixes or updates. Also due to this fact, always try and download the latest available repack when deciding to download a game to help avoid such problems.
When you run into a problem with a game, if you get an error message, Google the exact message and you will most likely find fixes. No error message? Try describing what happens to Google with the game name to find fixes. Still stuck? Try searching the forums here and on games torrent comments on Kickass and The Pirate Bay. You can always try asking yourself in the forum or the shoutbox too. Just try every fix you can find to do until the game works.
Joypad Emulation Software, other USB devices plugged in other than keyboard and mouse? - Unfortunately, these can sometimes be a cause of game problems, such as lag, start up and in game crashes. A part of your fixing strategy should be to Google about it and/or only have your keyboard and mouse plugged in and joypad emulation software disabled to rule out these problems.
Reinstalling the OS is a LAST resort, you really shouldn't need to do it to fix game a problem, only do it once you have exhausted all other possibilities and have tried all the fixes you can find and if you really think it will fix your problem.
Guide about OS fixing here - You will not lose any installed applications or personal files using it.

Denuvo Says It’s Still Winning the War Against Games Pirates !!
Despite a number of recent setbacks, anti-piracy company Denuvo says it is still winning the war against video game pirates. In a new interview the company's CEO and marketing director say it's all a question of maintaining perspective while understanding that no anti-piracy technology is flawless.
There have been a number of anti-piracy technologies that have become loathed by video games pirates over the years. Some are hated due to their tendency to reduce the quality of the gaming experience. Others are predictably hated due to their effectiveness.
In fact, if one took the time to map dislike of a particular technology and place it on a timeline of how long it takes it to get bypassed or ‘cracked’, those graphs would look very similar indeed. So, when we say that Denuvo is currently the most-hated of all anti-piracy technologies, there’s no real need to ask why.
Just recently, however, pirates have had reason to celebrate. In a matter of months, Denuvo has gone from pretty much uncrackable to a little bit vulnerable.
Early August, a cracker known as Voksi found a loophole in Steam which allowed many Denuvo-protected titles to be played for free. It was a Denuvo bypass, not a full crack, but pirates were grateful. Then, just a few days later the gratitude developed into glee when the first full crack of Denuvo appeared online courtesy of cracking group CPY.
But pirates are always hungry for more and immediately wanted to know when new games would become available. They didn’t have to wait long. Just a couple of weeks later the iteration of Denuvo protecting ‘Inside’ was cracked in record time.
Not long after, those victories were followed by cracks for new games including Doom and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, so was this the beginning of the end for Denuvo? Well, it all depends on one’s perspective.
Over the years, anti-piracy companies have learned that claiming their technology is flawless has always come back to bite them. Denuvo is no different. In a new interview with MCVUK, the company explains that being uncrackable is neither the claim nor the aim.
“You have to have a realistic view of anti-piracy measures,” marketing director Thomas Goebl explains.
“There is no such thing as unbreakable protection. That’s something we always tell our clients to help manage their expectations. Our scope is to prevent early cracks for every title. We want to allow an initial window when a game is released to have an uncracked version and thus guarantee sales.”
When one considers the effort and funds expended leading up to a game’s release, it’s no surprise that the first few days and weeks are the most important in terms of sales. For so-called ‘AAA titles’ (a big target market for Denuvo), marketing expenses can run into millions of dollars, with every cent designed to make gamers salivate with anticipation while moving their hands ever closer to their wallets. Any delay on stopping a pirate copy appearing quickly translates to more sales, Denuvo says.
But despite notable recent setbacks, Denuvo-protected titles still do not appear online on day one. Or week one. Or even month one. If people want these games, they’re going to have to pay for them. In fact, it is not unusual for games to remain unpirated for months, something that was unthinkable only a year or two ago when titles often appeared online before launch.
Denuvo CEO Reinhard Blaukovitsch told MCVUK that there are a number of strategies that can be employed by developers in order to recoup their development costs and Denuvo is just one piece of the puzzle.
“Some trust in DRM solutions, ones that are user-friendly. They also trust in our solution. There may be other solutions, where you go DRM free or do different price ranges in different territories. This is a marketing decision and strategy that the publishers may want to use. If they decide on some DRM technology or techniques, we can help them,” Blaukovitsch says.
Marketing man Thomas Goebl says that good games will always sell well but as soon as a working pirated version is available online, suddenly developers have to compete with free.
“Even if the service is good, if it has nice community features and so on, those people who don’t want to pay for it simply won’t pay because there is free competition,” he says.
Interestingly, Goebl notes something that many pirates will understand already. Multi-player games that require constant access to an online service are in many cases less vulnerable than variants that can also be played substantially offline. Just Cause 3 (released 11 months ago but yet to be cracked) might be considered one such example.
“Especially for single player games, or if there’s a big single player portion to the game, it makes perfect sense to use an anti-tamper solution like ours to prevent any cracks during the launch window time frame,” Goebl says.
Some pirates might be asking why it’s possible to quickly crack Inside, for example, but not other games that have been released since. The partial answer to that is while crackers like CPY burn the midnight oil circumventing Denuvo, the developers at Denuvo are doing the same with CPY’s work.
“The procedure [after a crack] is the same every time. We analyze how the crack was done and then we update our protection. It’s a game of cat and mouse that we play,” Blaukovitsch says.
“There are many techniques we use to prevent people from debugging, reverse engineering and otherwise tampering with our software. We are improving that technology or those techniques on a day-to-day basis, and coming up with new ideas that are almost entirely new inventions on a monthly basis on how we improve our service.”
The end result, no matter how unpopular with pirates, is that by the company’s own metrics, Denuvo is winning. In the majority of cases the technology does indeed stop games being pirated before, during and after launch, and indeed many months on in most cases.
Whether that will continue to be the case moving forward is unclear, but right now Denuvo is still the most-hated anti-piracy technology on the market. As long as it remains that way, it will be doing its job.
