What is more interesting - according to Volcano, Smiejaca Sie Twarz is a fake handle of Sebaloz ;)

Actually, #5 didn't use loaded menu so it wasn't 'cracked' at all - there was a response to that in Newspaper #6. Still, I love all those 'options' and the whole skirmish is delicious :D

There is a story behind this release.

You might be wondering who would crack a diskmag ;) Well, this goes back to Newspaper #4 . One of the 'features' of its outfit was that after each article, the article menu had to be reloaded from the disk. Not everyone found it 'user friendly', obviously. So the guy hiding under the nickname of Smiejaca Sie Twarz (The Laughing Face) released a version which fixed that small annoyance.

That was not well received by the diskmag staff, which was expressed in Newspaper #5 . As a result, SST decided to also release a fixed version of Newspaper #5 - his version includes non-loading menu, a faster diskloader and... an option to select those fixes (or disable them) upon running the magazine itself :)

At the time, the feud was kinda funny for the side observers. I decided to upload this version, as it is part of the Polish scene history, when it comes to diskmags.
