Perfect Dark is a Japanese P2P file-sharing program that is loosely based on Freenet. Files are split into chunks, encrypted, and uploaded to a distributed data store. Each user maintains a cache of such file pieces called a "Unity." Perfect Dark uses a combination of Distributed Hash Tables and Distributed Key Tables to enable fast searching of the network to find the desired files. Files can be found with either keyword searches, or an exact hash of the particular file sought.

What works

Downloading, searching, unity/caching, fonts, updating, "flow," exporting completed downloads, rating files.

What does not

Without the Japanese locale, Perfect Dark will not start at all. If locale is specified only as a shell variable, but not added to the system's locales, Perfect Dark will start but the search keyword list will not display correctly, and Perfect Dark will not export completed downloads correctly.


What was not tested

Uploading and message boards.

Additional Comments

Tweaks you need to get it working: (For Debian-based distros) Add Japanese locales to your system with dpkg-reconfigure with instructions here: Even though the link is to the winelocale project, winelocale isn't necessary for this tweak. Then, install Japanese fonts with $ sudo apt-get install ttf-kochi-gothic ttf-kochi-mincho ttf-mikachan ttf-mona ttf-sazanami-gothic ttf-sazanami-mincho ttf-vlgothic Running Perfect Dark with "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine perfect\ dark.exe" isn't a full solution because exporting completed downloads will not work. You need the locale added to your system.
