UltraSoft Pirating Inc.   (USP)

- USP Rulez in 1999!!!

UltraSoft Pirates, UltraSoft Pirating

Founded by :
Blessed Death on 1 January 1987

Dissolved in :
31 December 1989

Group Type :
Cracker Group

Base Country :
United States

Trivia :
West Virginia-based, local focused, amateur cracking group serving the Ohio Valley, US (Tri-State area). We met on the local BBS scene which was extremely PC and Mac-heavy.

Some releases are cartridge freezes done by various group members and some are actual cracks usually by Blessed Death or The Hellion.

Nothing is a recrack, but some releases are freeze hoaxes (freezes that are masquerading as "real" cracks). Usually later stuff is decently put together and more legit. Most of these releases were my main copy of the game I (Radd Maxx) always played, so most of them at least work. We were pretty lame (and 12) but we were dedicated and busy.

Originals were obtained via rental, purchased from "backup" vendors and purchased from local shops - release dates are far from ship date.

Group was created and dissolved by Blessed Death who later became Streetkiller and formed Advanced Software Piracy when he and the Hellion basically out-grew USP. From what I can remember, Blessed Death was the only one of us who knew ML. Somehow we met this Hellion fellow who was older than us, had a family etc. He also could code circles around most people, not just locals either. He quickly got Blessed Death up to speed and then they decided to drop USP and make a legit group. The rest of us felt we had become decent enough to rip routines and link intros so we kept rolling along locally as The G-Force with former members of The Osium Crew.

Special thanks to The Trooper who provided tools and mentoring.

Known missing releases are: Card Sharks, Mainframe, Victory Road, Grand Prix Circuit, Contra, Breakthru, Monopoly and Tetris.
