You are right, but I think we are starting from different starting points.
What Arkanoid disk did you check with and which emulator?
Does your disk in your test have a filler byte &A7 in sector &81-&88 and a damaged sector &79?

Ok, I think I fixed that. 

Can you do me a favor and test it BOTH with a new post (upped editing window to 70 minutes) AND an old post (shouldn't be able to edit)?

Thanks!

Yeah, it was reported already... Was trying to do something else and the courtesy edit window disappeared, no idea why - didn't touch that setting. Trying to figure it out...

It must have been in August 1987 and I was 13 years old.
Some of my friends already had an CPC 6128 or 464 because they visited the computer working group in school. :)

I had some proper school certificates in german high school and phrased my biggest wish to my parents often then. ;D
So we went to a big electronic store in Heilbronn to buy a Schneider CPC 6128 including green monitor GT 65.
Price must have been 799 DM.
I also got 10 3" discs and a joystick.
My father didn't had any clou what this weird accessory was all about. :P

Nowadays I'm very thankful for all that.
It was the best purchase ever and it paved the way for my professional career.
I learned how to handle computers, to start programming basic and Turbo Pascal and of course loved my CPC for the many nice games. 8)

Quote from: roudoudou on 14:55, 11 July 24programm wants you to unprotect floppy in case the protection fails => then it format the disc. Yep, it's violent

Nope, the arkanoid Loader does the protection itself without rendering the game unusable. It does not format
the disc but only Sector &79. to protect itself from copying.


take a look at the link i mentionned, all the process is described and i just checked on arkanoid dump,

You may have some fun changing that #79 sector to size 2 => then the whole floppy is formatted right after displaying it's an illegal copy

that's why the programm ask for unprotecting floppy

Games / Invasion - The Bouncing Army ...
Last post by XeNoMoRPH - 06:10, 12 July 24

QuoteInvasion - The Bouncing Army Aliens from the orange planet came to earth. On the mission to bring "Total Football" to us humans. The spaceship (aka the Oranje Bus) has to collect them and bring them to the football stadion. :-) A little tribute to the wonderful dutch football fans! At the moment it is a heavily flawed demo version, but till the end of the year we will have an extended and polished version!
