Thanks guys for feedback. I think it's no shame to lose first release against 3ad. I've learned my lesson and next time will release sth. when it's finished and not wait any longer.

And to get this right: as you see in credits I'm responsible for this version and not Achim. He only send over the files and wasn't involved in the crack as I wasn't involved in making the game. So it's not like "we" (MYD) were the developers.

So despite the fact that I got some files probably earlier and from a 100% reliable source, I did all the work as usual. Sitting in front of my C64 with retro replay monitor and a sheet of paper, browsing through the disassembly, scanning for unused memory for the trainer, writing down important memory locations.

So there was no shortcut or sth. like that.

I wanted to make a good, convenient (joystick controlled) trained version and I think I made it. What really bugs me is that I didn't find enough free time to finish my solution+map file that I started.

"Not my kind of game THO".

What's silly about the first release scene? Middle age men (and women) having fun computing?

If you don't crack your own game, someone else does, so in my book it's totally fine.

The game and package looks ace, not my kind of game. I'd wish Darkipede was the main game here. Maybe N0S can make a faster playing Centipede with more accurate..

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.

Nice release!

Yeah, this time we wanted to be fast/first. But it seems we were "beaten" considering first release.

Looking back, I'm not so convinced about "Nice to see Mayday fight in the first release scene". I still find it somewhat silly, personally ;) Criticism about „cracking own game“ made me giggle a bit, btw. But I admit it's a little... hmh... tragic, though, to say the least, since we were done a week ago and just waiting with respect for publisher. I feel some pity for spider-j who worked hard over the last weeks, so it does hurt a little which might even enrich 3ad's victory.

However, we're not sore losers but respect the fact that Triad entered the finish earlier, congratulations! From the publishers' and poducers' view, any publicity is good publicity, so check out both our and Triad's version and make up your mind which one's better... and most important: don't forget to buy the original!

The danger of not releasing your own game the day before commercial release. Nice to see Mayday fight in the first release scene, next time release the game earlier, looks like TRIAD won the race on the boards.

I do think it's a nice version. Don't get me wrong. I am more impressed by Triad's version though - simply because they fought the creator of the game releasing a crack of his game.

Nice version of a great game! Well worth to buy, just have to decide which flavour.

Also great crackintro (can't find an entry for it, so I bluntly comment it here anyways).
