Target Renegade (cracked version)
« on: 22:05, 02 May 21 »
I still have that disk from back then but not right now with me to test it again.
If you try to run the game, CPC resets. The friend who gave it to me, told me how to load it.
When the colour change to black(?) you need to remove the disk and count 2 secs, insert it, count to 1, and remove again for some more secs.
If I remember correctly that was the sequence.


Anybody had this version too?
I wonder how it worked.

When i'm looking for a recent crack i'm looking on CNGSOFT or Crackers Velus releases. The Target Renegade Velus release is quite good indeed.

How on Earth did someone figure out how it worked? It sounds almost impossible to take a few guesses on how to crack a program, let alone this way.

Probably this was explained somehow by the cracker to others.

I only speculate, but maybe the cracker kill the firmware. (o the game kill the firmware). So the cracker to write something in the screen need made their own asm screen  subroutine If he have space....


Put the cpc in black requires only few bytes...






Around extract the disk and insert it.....


Thats interesting, that remember me the cog-swap tecniques from playstations.


Sound that it need load something.. Or he need wait some obscure status of fdd.


I am sure there something related to the copy protection...

As he want inject some data... In a specific moment.



That crack is there?
