Re: News games checked.

Sorry, I have not written enough detail. They only paid for few legal copies and I guess they never sold them. Instead, they modified the original (crack, add their own mark, add batch files ...) then duplicated and sold the modified versions. They also made their box, printed their simplified versi...

Re: News games checked.

Then that's a copy protection support problem. When i install the 2 disks on my old 286 with VGA adaptator, the game works correctly. PCE surely has a problem with the "Titus Megaprot 247 - Hackers are women" protection track. i have seen what happens with prehistorik 2. It doesn't look l...

Re: News games checked.

That's interesting but very hard to make sense. Why they would use the most expensive duplicator unless they reproduced the original copy protection (which is not easy without the original scripts)? At the time nobody would make the kind of analysis we run today. If they wanted to sell cracks, then...

you can bypass the protection system with a crack?


Sorry, I can't crack it.

Re: SCP disk images !

The alternate dump of Paperbpy works fine, no matter you dump it in index mode or splice mode and how many revolutions you set. Every dump of the other one doesn't contain the protection tracks, so doesn't work. This is the PCE emulator with the working image : https://mega.nz/#!apxS0LRK!sCwB4LOPGT0...

Re: News games checked.

Do you actually know that some pirates acquired a Trace duplicator? Or it's just a speculation based on an unmodified image from what seems to be a pirated disk? I actually know three software corporation(s), but I will not tell you their name. Because they are still alive. And they made pirate cop...

Re: News games checked.

This game (Doctor Doom's Revenge) will ask some questions at the beginning like this : boot_000.png It uses manual copy protection. To play an un-cracked version of this game. Player should select the right answer twice. If you select the wrong answer, it will jump back to DOS soon. The uploaded SCP...

Re: SCP disk images !

How do I convert the images in PSI format? Is there a way to use disk images protected with dos emulators? You can use the PCE tools (pfi.exe, pri.exe, psi.exe) to convert your SCP dumps to PSI image : http://www.hampa.ch/pub/pce/pre/pce-20161019-c920668-pfi-win32.zip Then use the PCE emulator to r...

Re: News games checked.

First of all, I am not here to argue with you. Just express what I see. I didn't say your disk is modified. But an unmodified disk not equal to an "authentic" copy. I know some disloyally software corporation(s) buy Trace Moutain Duplication machine to make pirate copy of games/apps. I can...

Re: News games checked.

The Doctor Doom's Revenge US version was a sealed copy i bought in USA, it was a leftover from a software shop. I have unwrapped/unsealed myself the game, and i never try to deprotect the game. I just help checking those dumps and I don't know/care it is sealed or not. In this case, I would say tha...

Re: SCP disk images !

The new dump of BoulderDash was decoded ok and works fine. This is the PCE emulator (for windows) with this game (convert to PSI format), you can try it. https://mega.nz/#!6pRQlAAa!UA82qO_AzI1kq4OAjudWoJd8s2VFOlBoVy3Pw_gybJU Password is your ID ;) The game Paperboy doesn't work because it's protecti...

Re: News games checked.

Checked the two dumps : [SCP-IBM PC] DR DOOM'S REVENGE - (US Version) - IBM MS-DOS - (C) 1989 Marvel Ent. Group - Paragon Software - Medalist Int.7z This is a cracked copy. I don't think it makes sence to dump a pre-cracked game. There are too many cracked versions floating on the internet. [SCP-IBM...

Re: SCP disk images !

But when dumping multiple revolutions, reading of the disk is continuous. If that is true then I don't know why the cross-index sector does not decode correctly. I have a Kryoflux image of the same disk, though not necessarily of the same copy, which works without problems. Does the copy used durin...

Re: SCP disk images !

I am sorry. Copy Mode = "index" means blindly, "splice" means non-blind. I wrote the wrong word. So, for flyers80 and dlfrsilver, please set Copy Mode = "splice" then dump those games again. The following is the answer wrote by my friend NRS: But why you require those d...

Re: SCP disk images !

Hi Uploaded to "Incoming SCP" Xenon 2 and other games for IBM PC Hi, I am the guy left message in the ftp for you. Boulder Dash's copy protection has a sector across the index signal. This means that the SCP file must be dumped in "non-blind" mode. Look at the SCP manual, page 2...
