    Default Embarrassing - Metro: Last Light Ranger difficulty activated via registry setting



    Now this is really embarrassing for both 4A Games and Deep Silver. Remember the Ranger DLC Mode that can is being sold for 5 bucks? Well, this mode can be easily activated via a registry tweak. Yeap, you read that right. You won’t have to download anything additional in order to play with this ‘hardcore’ game mode. Only one registry value is needed in order to unlock this mode.

    “1: open regedit
    2: Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Valve/Steam/Apps/43160
    3: Create a new String value called ListOfInstalledDLC with Value data 222801
    4: Open game – New game – Select Hard Ranger Mode”

    Oh my, that is embarrassing. But I wonder what happens to your steam account if you do decide to try this 'tweak'.

    From what I have read, the guys that have tried it haven't had anything happen to their game accounts.
    That said I expect a patch in the next few hours to fix it lol

    Funny how they expect people to pay for something that's already on your machine. If it's unlocked with a registry entry then I'm asuming it's only unlocking a feature that's already there.
    They must've learnt this trick from Capcom.
    Nothing is permitted, everything is true.

    Actually a lot of people have it wrong. Ranger mode doesn't make everything difficult. It makes everything Authentic and totally Rad. (Sarcasm). They figured that this is for the hardcore Metro fans and shipped the first day releases with Ranger mode in it ( You know because Hardcore Metro fans won't wait a day to buy the game.) at no extra cost. I think pre-ordering the game also gave you Ranger difficulty. After that if you want Ranger mode you can buy it for 5$

    Wouldn't you want to play the game as it's meant to be played?
