LOL i could have sworn the rules included "unauthorized" in the definition of "crack". sorry, it was only part of the crack standards that some brainiacs removed. go ahead =)

I have locked the entry to prevent more edit warmongering.

@Dr.Strange: I changed to previous information. We're not the only one to handle the release and each of us - for the accuracy of csdb entries - suppose to put the correct ones.

"shitloads of groups did the same thing for decades" THIS.
"All this first release stuff is just a circus." AND THAT.
PERIOD.

@E$G, The Overkiller: I am pushing you guys only because I keep seeing the CSDb entry changed from crack to game. However, you are stating that this is a first release but it has been changed again on your CSBd entry to C64 Game. Am I entitled to be a bit confused on this?

If you look for the game as it was born just d/l: Tenebra Macabre [16kb cartridge]
This is a crack with more help for lazy players that fear the dark, torch on!

All this first release stuff is just a circus. Most of the so called first releases are based on early access, where's the difference? A missing intro? I'm happy to see all this debate about nothing. This is not good, but an early access is good, introlinking something with just a pair of sprites is good... Do whatever you want, I personally prefer to produce than talk. $FCE2 from me.

Cracking scene is not referred just to the 1st releases. My answer is wider and is not an answer to you but a general one.
About this crack: Got the trainer, the dox, flag set to 1st release, u/l to 1st release counting bbs. Now we let the 3 mags to judge if it is or not. The audience is waiting... beware... be fair.

again: this does NOT qualify as a crack according to the rules here. whether someone uploads it on the board for points is irrelevant for this.

User Comment
Submitted by Didi [PM] on 28 February 2019
My intention would be NO, because there is no crack intro added. Would also depend on who uploaded it to the boards. I'd think trainers were just added to spoil the game for crackers, like several game coders do today.

@E$G: I really don't understand what are you trying to say. I guess some of us are just confused about this release. However, regarding your "no rules" mention, I presume you are aware that there are rules for first releases. So, I ask again: did you guys go for a crack first release on this?

User Comment
Submitted by E$G [PM] on 28 February 2019
What's the difference between old & new cracking scene? According to the main thing there is no difference!
There are no rulez. That's why we are still here since 1983 to spend time in what we love.
All the other words are subjective way to face a fact.
The word ethic can't be used anymore.
It's ethic to steal members from another group or persuade a member to change his group? Downvote a good work, vote & upvote for their group release x-pecially in a competition?
Get ready for the new trend... do self-made preview of a game that won't be released to get some points and even worse release preview of a beta version with minor differences.
That's it, you wanted the worst, you got the worst...
Lame meaning is different, don't steal code or crack from another group. This is the true essence, don't do it, this is what cracker scene aim & pretend otherwise reputation & respect will flush away.

Digital Monastery and Hokuto Force should be treated as different Groups on CSDb. Would make the stuff clear. Many groups had game development labels in the past and they are treated separately.

User Comment
Submitted by Dr.Strange [PM] on 28 February 2019
So, is this a game or a first release crack release? Judging from the fact it's all over the boards too, I presume you guys went for the points, so this should be considered as a crack release. Is that a fair assumption?

I think releasing a self-made new game both in pristine and fully-trained+intro-linked versions at the same time is a pretty elegant way to 1up the leetcr4xx0rz. +1 :)

So this isnt the first release of this game? again what learned!

User Comment

@Groepaz: True, but they are stating that this is a first release, so there's probably a bit of confusion on their side.

More interesting: which group linked more intros in front of unprotected freeware games in the last couple years - yours or his?

That said, it nowhere says it was cracked - and doesnt qualify as crack as per the rules either.

Majikeyric: But you are still member of a group that do all this you despite? How does that work. Is it only your games that are holy? Still: keep up your game coding. I love it.

User Comment

@Majikeyric: It sounds right from your point of view, but can't agree on a scene level. However, I guess every group should decide how they want to live and contribute to the cracking scene. Re the shameless crackers: that's what crackers do, they want to crack more and more, and they will do anything to get a new orrie. It's up to you to decide if you want to give your productions to someone or not.

When game coding is your passion and you spend hundreds hours making your best to deliver a nice freeware game. You hardly accept that cracker groups get fame with it because they added a lame trainer and their intro in front of an unprotected game starting with a SYS 2061. Not talking about the shameless crackers who contact you to ask to release your game first.

Despite the fact we have done the same in ATL years ago, I ended up realising how embarrassing that is. Cracking games produced internally, it is such a bad practice that all cracking groups should stop straight away. There's already a lot groups getting stuff in advanced, even without coder's permission, that this is just making cracking even more ridiculous. Now, I am not that naive thinking that we should have "ethics", but come on guys, are we not better than this?

imho its a way to prevent crackers releasing your game with their intro infront of it.

If a game was cracked by it's creator then one could say without doubt that a lot of work was invested into this crack. ;)

The edit-history should be public anyway (just like on wikipedia). So, don't worry about that Hedning!

I agree with Mr_Ammo here, since this is a database that can be edited by any registered user, the edit-history should be public, for registered users.

I also don't really like the fact one can "lock" an entry, but I suppose that's a decent way to avoid obvious vandalism or trolling.

+1 for public edit history. it would not create tons of drama but actually serve another purpose!

There's no politically correct term for 'fucking idiot'.

@Enrico/Blood oath to keep Edits secret: LOL... Omertà? Camorra Scene Database?! Though I know, some mods and "normal"(are there any normal people f---ing around with 30+x years old systems?) sceners take stuff overly seriously, but blood oath sounds a little over the top, at least I hope you're kidding.

I just wrote "fuck off csdb nazi mods" on my door in lambs' blood. That was fun, though I don't have kids, so maybe it wasn't strictly required.

@the Ryk: just remembering what our rule is here. Mods of the past and nowadays ones are always under attack, they just apply the rules (they haven't made) and help mainteining the db, one of this rule, until won't change, is to keep secret the infos are not public. For sure edit won't create any panic here but for example if votes - the secret ones- will be revealed, the pandora's box will blow everything up! So no blood oath but we take our mission professionally with users help of course.

I want votes and edit info made totally public. There is not enough drama nowadays, let's stir some shit up! ;)
Seriously, knowing the kindergarden we have to deal with, it's better not disclose anything. Stay on the safe side.
