bullshit, being able to write and use your own tools was a huge part in cracking.


@Burglar: What do you expect from somebody releasing a Genesis Project Intro Collection? :P

Yes, it's about coding your own tools, you can't do that if you don't understand the disk and tape loaders. And IFFL is part of that optimizing process too, but that's only MAIL scene type releases. Firstie scene was all about speed, so fastest crunchers and what not... how fast your cruncher was the difference between a 1st release and not sometimes.

Cool, the sources are only for C64, while drivecode is binary-only and written to the disk by the linker if I understand right :)

*sigh* I still remember when that asshole (still don't know who he is/was/will ever be, but I remember him as an asshole ;) ) showed me a reu-enabled cruncher for the first time. Wetted my pants. And of course had no money to get my own reu :/

Sounds like the scener version of some asshole revving up his sports car at an intersection. But what made him an asshole? It was not his mere owning an REU, was it? :)

Completely supporting Fungus' and Burg's post up there.

Just curious if anybody knows - Chromance was using two different "IFFL" systems. Syllinor's early version to some extend and one Painkiller was using (even did?). Did he do that one himself or was it some rip-off?
Back then I was surprised that next to the usual ones I was given there actually was one I didn't recognize right away :)

TBH I cannot tell. Cant remember looking a Bacchus' routine/linking and stuff.

However - IF ppl resurrect such old threads it might be about time to write an excessive comparison about these in Propa^h^h^h^h^hVandalism or so.. :)
