From http://c64preservation.com:
'"SpiraDisc"
This protection name hails from the Apple ][ and isn't exactly the same, but similar. It is found on one commercial disk that we've seen- "Bounty Bob Strikes Back". The data on the first 14 tracks or so are written half on the regular track, and half on the next half-track, all aligned perfectly. The game loads by stepping out to track 1, beginning the load, then stepping a half track at a time all the way in until the game is loaded. If any deviation in time from where it expects the data to be and when is found, it fails.'

The included .g64 doesn't seem to be protected using that method. What is the protection used in it?

DrHonz, msg from "the man" himself (I'm sure he won't mind it being published) >>

I don’t know what to say…besides “wow”. Sadly I tossed most of everything so the original source code has long since decomposed.

But I can tell you for sure: The original never looked that good. I didn’t have the luxury of having separate files to be included back in the day. And comments just took up disk and memory space so there were usually none. This version is way better than the original!

Hats off to you!
