Release id #166930 : Yoomp!64 +3PD

Moved the discussion to the place for discussions. :)

Backup board is invoked if one of the main boards is down during the whole 24h. How would it make sense otherwise? If Reflections was down one hour 03 in the morning just when you tried to upload your crack, the rest of the groups wouldn't notice, and lose just because one board was down for some time during the 24h. 24h rule must mean 24h. If one board is gone for 24h, the backup board goes into effect. That is logical to me. Especially as the race isn't over until 24h have passed.

If two or three (our four?) boards all have hickups during the 24h you mean there are no boards to be counted? Your view of the rules does not make sense. I will count the boards and the releases after 24h have passed. That will show who won the race.

We were first on all boards and sites initially. During that time both Antidote and The Hidden were down, according to the rules, the backup site RapidFire is then invoked and we were first there (and Reflections) thus we were first on the majority of boards using the 24 hour rule. Regards. Note: you cannot re-invoke downed boards. When they are down, backup is in play.

Antidote and The Hidden were down for some time, but came up within the counted 24h when we tried to upload our crack, and we were able to be first on both. We also went with Reflections and the backup BBS Rapidfire, even if the latter is a bit redundant, as we already were first on 2 out of 3 counted boards within the counted 24h. Cheers!

Quote: Well, how things have worked in the scene. When a beta is used, it is marked as preview. no more than that. a bit different to the commercial scene but it is the crack scene. anyway, discussed with several guys now and will mark gp version as a beta. ons version as final and first by several hours. cheers.

Do as you wish in VN, of course. Read the whole story in the next issue of the Propaganda List, all details revealed, delivered to you on time, 1st of October. As I am biased regarding this release I will let others judge the releases in question, of course. Cheers.

Just my two cents .. I'll go back to coding now ;-)

wise decision! :)
Raistlin, I was one of your biggest fan back in the days as I always loved your coding skills. Today I'm so überhappy and I can't believe to see ya old bitch back in 2018 and even see you still have the magic touch! :)
But hey: you look a bit like Sly in demolition man, cryogenically frozen for a couple of decades. no offence dude, but I'm afraid for you the more you try to understand what today is meant with "cracking" the less you'll like it. so looping my comment: coding is wiser.

Ian,

A photo sent by your partner of a bread, a block of cheese, a pack of butter.. that's a preview

Standing in the kitchen, him/her giving you a block of cheese to taste, perhaps a slice of tomato.. that's a preview

Looking at the bill of the overpriced ingredients and having to listen for 2 hours on where he/she went shopping.. that is still a preview..

Standing in the kitchen patiently and grabbing the final result to scoff it down because you are hungry.. that is not a preview.. it's a damn sandwich.

The cellophane that should have gone around it does not make it a sandwich.

Thanks Smasher, I think I will.

Times sure have changed... when the “publisher” of a game gets first-release status for cracking their own game, you just know that the shark has been well and truly jumped 8)

Anyway, i’m gonna go write a script to help me release 1000 different maze games in September so that I can crack them all myself and own the charts :-) .. people will think i’m a true crack god for cracking my own games :-)

It also happened in the past. Examples may be Zuul, Cross It, Rubicon, Solitax by your very own groups. ;-P

At least they tried to hide it back then. By a reason. The problem here is actually not the crackers. They do what they always do, even lame stuff. If anyone should be questioned it is the game companies that willingly leak the games they try to sell to specific cracking groups, without having the game coder accepting that.

with the entries on this db.
is a beta a preview?
also, if the ons version doesnt contain a bug that is in the gp preview, do we mark the ons version with the 100% tag?
