Original Turbo Assembler

I'm looking for dump o original (not crack) Turbo Assembler and Turbo Assembler Macro. If anyone has it please share it. Thanks in advance.

Seems like the file that is loaded (second file) in Turbo Assembler V1.0 is not modified. I have a slightly different version of the file. Instead of "XMON2500" it has "NML $2000" in memory but I don't think that this is done by the cracker.
I can sent you the version I have, if you like.

Thanks for pointing me the file. If you could send me another copy I would appreciate it. One thing I've been interested is that I've read somewhere that the original has been dongle protected. Can anyone confirm this really has been the case? The version from above link works correctly and it seems it does not have any protection. Anyway I've been looking for the first version to see how it differs from all the TA and TAM versions I've been using all those years.

Antitrack used to have an original version to de-protect. Msg him on IRC maybe?

Yep. It _was_ dongle protected. The dongle was on the tape port, using a timer 555.
The checks were checking $01 MAAANY times, something like "bit $01 ; bvc crash". Sometimes something more elaborated like checking the timer 555 chip (at $cXXX mem area).

Otherwise, there was no copy protection itself; you could simply file-copy the assembler.

I'll dump it.

sure there was a timer? iirc there were just two pins bridged - hence it worked if you simply pressed play on tape. consequently, a bunch of pirate versions do NOT work if you press play on tape, because just a branch was negated to "crack" it. (too lazy to look it up now, there was a VICE bugreport about this a while ago). maybe that timer thing was only used for the macro version?
