The Reformation #2 FairLight


The Reformation #2          FairLight

	Say your prayers little one
	Don´t forget, my son
	to include everyone
	you fucking dirty one!

Aaaand again, another issue of this mag. Issue 2 finally got 
released faster then we and probably also you thought! 
Maybe you blame me a bit about the few text here but Enduro
supplied me with really quite hot news and I didn´t want to keep 
them longer. Also a major part of the rest in this mag was 
supplied from Enduro, so give him some applouse to his work!

Well, as you see we have the same outfit like in issue 1, but 
maybe there will be soon some (little) changes as the main part of
the code beats every other mag codings. Really good work from 
Mikael (Tron). Just some few corrections should be done like to
improve the menu part.

So far with the intern shit. Because the spreading:
If you like this mag and you are a mega-swapper (at least 100
contacts) then we would invite you to become a official THE
REFORMATION spreader! In that case you would get the mag in
the same time like the co-editors to spread it as fast as possible.
If you are interested give a ring or send a letter to Black Priest.
Reformation is like Hulk Hogan. #1!

News & Rumours

General Infos                                      

Everytime when you see a "<", then you can be sure that the news
are 100% right, as we got them by the group themselves or we´ve
checked them!

This time nearly all news were supplied by Enduro so, as I wrote 
them down can´t use the "<" sign that often. As I only put that 
mark on news which I know that they are 100 % true.
But as Enduro told me, all news are 100% true anyway!

If you know some hot news post them on Warez Aquarium, or 
tell us them through phone of mail.

Top 20 Mega Allround Charts           

Well, it´s always the same fucking thing when a new charts idea is
born. It´s hard to realize. Well, to make a long story short, we got
to few votes to present you here the "Elite charts ´93".

But don´t be sorry,angry or whatever, because Enduro found an-
other neat idea of allround charts, which we´ll present you here!
The following charts was 100% done by Enduro so all applouse to  
him. (OK, now Martin?)

Just some words to my old idea with the "elite charts". Please still
send me your votes if you haven´t done this yet. Because we´ll 
release these charts when we got enough votes!

First some facts about these new allround charts:

* All types of groups have a chance to enter, not only demo or 

* All members in the group on the charts are at least
   registrated in one counted magazine.

* I count each point a member or a mag receives in the selected 

* The charts is based on votes from these mags. 

- Moonlight #04
- Splash #15
- Scene Observer #07
- Miracle #07
- Remark #17
- Network #05
- Link #10
- Newspress #08

(As you can see there´re some changes of the selection, but don´t 
blame me, blame the editors which haven´t released their mags  
under this period like: CLIQUE,TRINOMIC,OXYRON,...

But the charts shows you a 100% fair view of the 20 strongest 
allround groups in the scene for the moment!)

Well probably you´ll see that in this chapter are quite few 
adresses this time, that´s because,... you know it, because the fast 
release date. I guess you don´t care and so do we.

We´re heavy-We´re hard and smart!

More than just swappings

Modem utis. and friendship: 

Ikarus / RSI + AFL ´70

And that´s it                                        


Introductions and Sorrys                   

Hmm, when you´ve read the "Editorial" chapter you´ll await an
interview with Airwolf/SUCCESS here.... BUT as there went 
something wrong with the post I haven´t got it in time. Also the 
modem way failed, as I haven´t got Norman´s number!
It´s curious, his adress you can found in nearly every mag but his
phone number seems to be Top Secret. Not even some SCS 
members has known it. 

But, to make you a bit happy I decided to put an old, already re-
leased interview with Antitrack/LEGEND here. As this one was 
one of the most interesting ones and we guess it´s better to release
an old interview than none. Or?  

The interview with Airwolf/SUCCESS will be released in the 3rd
issue then, if all works right.
Lame fucking comments all the time

The Reformation nostaly interviews

TR = The Reformation

A = Antitrack/LEGEND

TR: Salute Alex! Everyone knows you but anyway some details 
      about you would be nice.

A: In christmas 1982 a little boy called Alex happend to find a 
     Commodore 64 under the tree and guess what, he´s still using 
     the same computer till now!
     (Even the keyboard is the same... lovely.... ergh!!!!!)

     Now, this guy is a bit older orcourse (23 years to be precise...)
     and, he´s better known under his pseudo "ANTITRACK of
     LEGEND", and he still knows how to handle this little 

TR: You are quite inactive at the time. What´s up? A girlfriend?

A: Oh no, I´m not that inactive at all, but you guys just don´t see 
     what I´m doing, because it´s not a crack and I don´t release it.  
     In other words, I´m frequently programming little tools and 
     routines for myself, and I´m also the only one who can handle 
     them, so it´s useless to release stuff like that.

     But don´t worry, every now and then, there is an original that 
     is supposed to be difficult or a lot of work, so then I´m there 
     Girls are still allowed to send their proposal of marriage to my
     P.O. Box hahaha....

TR: You was the one who made COSMOS strong. You was the one
      who made Austria famous. Many guys says that you are the 
      best cracker ever! You are a legend! So why don´t you make
      money with your great abilities? Like Snacky/GP with crack
      protections or something like that...

A: I was the one who made COSMOS strong? Oh no, that must be 
     a mistake! I rather believe that SSD/COSMOS was the most  
     active guy. Cracking has never been a problem (at least not 
     for me), but getting the originals, megaswapping and modem 
     and having all the important connections was rather SSD´s job

     So far about COSMOS...

     About the money, I can happily tell you that my first game, 
     "Five a row", already was sold to GAME ON and I made a 
     profit of $580 for that one.
     Actually it was sold for $1340, but the music costed $80, the 
     travel to Germany to fetch the money costed $80 aswell, and
     the guy who made the graphics, who sold the game to 
     MAGIC DISK, who had the game concept also wanted to earn 
     ...ehm... $600, if I not mistaken. Well, and we´ll start another
     game soon. (But don´t hold your breath, I´m a kinda slow 
     during programming...)

TR: McSprite told me that you need 8 min for a cartridge crack! 
      Is that right or just a rumour?

A: Well, I suppose I´ve been misunderstood. The whole crack of
     "SHADOW OF THE BEAST" took an afternoon ofcourse. You 
     know, loading, crunching and saving and linking all the files 
     and playtesting took this time. What those 8 min were about:
     It was the time to study how the cartridges is constructed and 
     to choose a strategy to crack it. All the other time was only 
     executing my strategy and in this phase, no more surprises 
     showed up ofcourse.

     In general, when people ask me how long it took me to crack  
     something, I usually tell them how long I had to study the 
     protection in order to choose a strategy to crack it. I do not 
     consider all the loading,saving, crunching, testing etc.  
     As a real "WORK". Everyone knows how to handle "DARK  
     SQUEEZEER" so crunching, for example, is Darksqueezer´s
     work, not the cracker´s one!


TR: Who is in your opinion the best cracker ever?

A: That´s difficult. On the 64, I was more impressed by the old 
     guys´ works around 1985-1988, (Mister Zeropage, Teenside 
     Cracking Service, Jedi, etc...), and nowadays? Well, 
     Rockstar or Horizon/NEI are brilliant as always, but I 
     suppose the best cracker moved away from the C64 quite a 
     while ago and is rather being found on Amiga, guys like H.Q.C.
     I do know some bright local Amiga people and they do rather 
     fit in the best cracker ever category. (e.g. King Georg/ex-
     SUBWAY or in whichever group he is now).
     Far be me, however, to judge people! I like everyone who´s 
     doing great work, not "just" cracking, but making music,
     graphics, demos, games and tools.

TR: What´s your opinion to the lame little 20-100 blocks long self-
      written games by some coder who wanna just earn some 
      quick money?

A: Oh well, as my own game is 83 Blocks it does fit into this 
     category! Ofcourse I always delete games like that (my one  
     too.... oooops!) But if a game is particluarily very bad and it´s
     not the fault of the guy who sells it, but the fault of the guy 
     who buys this crap!

     (Walter Konrad, you´re free to guilty now! (Grin!))

TR: Has anyone teached you how to crack?

A: Nope, I found out everything by myself. Which took quite 
     some time.

TR: Who was the original supplier in glory COSMOS days? And 
      who is it now?

A: In COSMOS, SSD was responsible to get the originals, and I 
     can vaguely remember he had 4 guys in England who bought 
     them for us.

     Nowadays, my fellow LEGEND members (any of them) might
     send me something that is supposed to be lots of work. I really
     don´t like to work on simple or non-existant copy protections,
     you know.

TR: Well, let´s stop here with all this shit. Keep Austria ruling... 
      Bye friend...

A: It wasn´t shit. So long....

TR: Yeah! Sure it wasn´t! Thanks for the interview..

Secret Letters

Again troubles with Crossfire/Epic  

Article by Jack Alien/Alpha Flight 1970

All of you kknow the dude called Crossfire but did you know that 
all his so-called "1st releases" are "re-releases"? Not? 
Well, so you´re on the right place. Read this letter and you know 
that he´s a god damned motherfucker.

First of all the originals:

I swapped a long time ago with him and I sended him sometimes 
new originals which were not older than 2 weeks. After some day
(or weeks) he wrote back and told me that he´ve got my originals
some days before. But on the disc was the cracked version from 
The best comes... He sended me some originals who was much 
older than mine (over 2 weeks up to 4 weeks!), and there was 
some new cracked games on his disc, too. But he sended me not 
the originals from his cracks, only after they were older than 2 

Over to the so-called "1st releases"

He cracked the game DYNAMITE BENCH and gave it to EMPIRE
to fix this game. Ok, EMPIRE fixed it. But ... the game is the same 
like DYNAM-X and was cracked by ACTION in May 19??. OK if 
you don´t believe me so look out for both games and check´em out
from $6000 to $????. You´ll see that both games have nearly the 
same coding. He changed only the intro and the name. And there 
were 2 more but I can´t remember the names.
Now I heard that EMPIRE fixed again a crack from Crossfire of
EPIC, and someone found out that this game is again a re-release.
So I ask you... can Crossfire make real 1st releases or not?

OK, over to cracking games:

I got his version from POPEYE´s and I laught about his version 

	1. Many sprite bugs in level 2

	2. If you´re GAME OVER the game jumps to a little routine
	   which checked the addy $8ed0 (or so...?) that there 
   stands "start". But you must know that in the original is a file 
   with the name "start" and this file will be loaded if you´re
   game over. So you can press fire as much as you want and the
   game restarts never again. And the levels overload the addy 
   $8ed0 !!! So the name isn´t there again.

	3. When you finished all levels the game wants to load the 
	   end-sequence... but there´s no end-sequence on disc so 
	   the game fucks up.


He packed all levels and I ask you why? All levels are the same 
like in the game. So he spreaded a 270 blocks version. (the biggest
I´ve ever seen!) I made a 172 blocks version (156 blocks main + 16
blocks end-sequence, of course only 2 files!).


There´s again no end-sequence on disc.

So you can see that he´s only a totally lamer and I can´t believe
that so many guys vote for him or his group!?!
I´ve nothing against the other members from EPIC but against a 
pisshead like Crossfire.
War across the world - what a shit!  

Hunter/Paramount is an asshole!

Article by Lynx/ex-Paramount

Maybe you all know, that Hunter planned a copyparty on the 
3/4.4.1993 in the "Westfaehlischer Hof" in Borghorst. Party 
invitations and a disknote were spreaded, As we (Slayer, I, X-Tro
and Reject) arrived there, we were shocked. The "West-Faehl-
ischer Hof" was closed 25 years ago! Also Bigfoot waited infront of
this building. With the time more and more guys arrived
(SUNRISE,COMIC PIRATES to name a few). We waited till 17 
o´clock, and we drived meanwhile to Hunter´s home, but he was
not there. Some people called the police, because some guys  
throw the window from the building in. But, the police was 
FRIENDLY!!! They organized a new room for us, were we can 
sleep and held OUR party. It was in a youth hotel. The bad thing 
was, that one guy (don´t know exactly who) shouted out some  
nazi paroles. One turk heard it. He called some more from his 
gang, and they slag on Slayer/ex-Paramount and Decoy/Sunrise.
How stupid, they followed us to the youth hotel, but we called the
police again. They were by us, when the turk cames. They came 
with 3 cars and a motorbike, and again the police managed it to 
get a few room for us. The town is called Burg-Steinfurt and is 
6 km away from Borghorst. It was a sporthall. We felt save in this
sporthall, and we played a bit football. For sure, it was no copy-
party, but a nice meeting to the end. After some hours, the turks
stand infront of the doors from the hall. So far, we called the  
police again. Neverless, they came too late, but it was not the 
fault from the police. The turks thought then, that I shouted the 
Nazi paroles. So, one of them gave me a bang to my head. As I 
was on the floor ground more turks came, and they ragged on me
One with a fingerring, one with an baseballracket onto my back.
3 other turks were ragging with their feeds to me. After that, I
have now a very "blue eye" and many blue flecks. Some minutes 
later, the police came and I restored a notice. I hope that the 
police will find the turks, and that the turks will be throw out of 
Germany! Mayy you think that these hard words, but you know,  
that I´m absolutely no nazi. And after that, I´m no nazi, but it´s 
not fair to rag on guys, which doesn´t shouted any nazi-paroles, 
What I don´t understand, that these turks took all so seriious, and 
came with 20-30 people to us. Anyway, I don´t know why they 
shouted the nazi-paroles, but maybe it is cool? Fact is, in 
Germany aree living good germans and bad germans also good 
turks and bad turks. One of my best friend is a turk. Sometimes,
if I meet him, I say to him:" Yo old turksucker!". It´s a joke, and 
he take it as a joke. So, the reason why I left PARAMOUNT is 
clear now. Hunter fooled uss all, also Bigfoot/ex-PARAMOUNT. 
I can´t stand with an asshole in Paramount, also Bigfoot left now 
Paramount. It seems, that Slayer quitted due to that the 64 again 
and went to Amiga. 

(red: They guy who shouted the nazi paroles was REJECT of
ex-HITMEN. Just to mentioned!)

Tests, Reviews and Previews              

 Coma Light SQR 71 / OXYRON
Parts:4    Rating: 89%

This demo was again meant as a "light" demo, because it includes 
the parts which are too bad for the soon coming COMA LIGHT 9. 
But TTS proved again his quality and his vector excesses.

Code: TTS		Graphics: TTS, RRR		Musics: Andre, Pri

Highlights of this demo:

- 2560 Plot scroll - Record!

- Complex vectors

- new art of plotball with 4096 plots!

- 7 colours inconvex vectors

Beyond Reality / Focus
Parts: 5   Rating: 80%

Code: X-Byte,TDJ,Compyx,Jacye
GFX: PDB,Compyx

- nice loader GFX by Compyx!

Hard Target / Paradize
Parts:6    Rating: 69%

Yes, you see PRZ is still alive and this demo was meant to be a 
"We are not dead" demo. The code and graphics are made by Silco.
Musics was made by some various composers.

There are no real highlights in this demo, just some more or less 
good graphics by Silco and some nice codings but no revolutions...

The Culture / Cult
Parts:10   Rating: 60%

Code: Cliff,Rogue,Odie,Lucky
GFX: Galland,Montana,Valiant,Rogue,Cliff
MSX: Top Secret,Marshall,Gero,Crush

- except some parts and the music this demo is rather bad. Like 
   in 1990!

- lame vector equalizers.

Sorry for so few tests, but through the fast release of this issue 
we couldn´t get more demos. If you want to be sure that YOUR 
demo will be tested just send it us and we´ll do it. In the end of
1993 you´ll see your demo then in the hall of fame 1993!

Burp, again few infos here but HOT ones and that counts!


There might be an Elysium party soon. The party place will be 
located near to the polish border.


Remember to our last issue? We wrote that FLT maybe will make
a C64+RAM convertation of the Amiga game PINBALL DREAMS
After a small talk with Tron, we know now that the same guy 
who wrote the ball routine on the Amiga will probably come to 
Bacchus place and code it on the C64. But it´s still nothing 
promised yet!


Their new demo will be named "2nd best". The guys who will 
create it are:

Code:        Dub 1, Dennis, Ventura, Anorganic
Graphics: Silco, Hobbit, Genius, Cybex
Musics:    some various famous ones.

Current Scene Records                       

In this new chapter we´ll show the world the current scene 
records. I think this is easy to undeerstand and we need not spent 
more words on it.

Of course we don´t know all records so, if you have done one or 
just beat one just tell it us with a little prove and you´ll be shown 
here until this mag will die!
We would be also glad if you tell us when we write a wrong

The chapter is shared in 3 sub-chapter:

	1) Coding records! 	Who is the best?
	2) Pioneers! 	First routines by whom?
	3) Curious! 	Curious records

The Coding records sub-chapter is also shared in:

	a) Bob records
	b) Plots records
	c) Vector records
	d) General records

The Pioneers sub-chapter is shared in:

	a) FLI stuff
	b) Vector stuff
	c) General stuff

just to get a bit outfit in this chapter.

You can see this chapter as HALL OF FAME.

Time to show the world who rules!

Biggest phone bill

Probably it´s BLACK PRIEST/Fairlight with 21.562 oeS (= more
than 10.000 SKR or 3000 DM). (Maybe Tron could beat this 

Biggest scene member

It was GHOST/ex-CRUSADE who was 2.03m high, but I don´t 
know if he´s still active!

Heaviest scene member

We still search for it.

Most issues of a mag

It was MAMBA/Crazy (Ikari+Talent) with 25 issues.

Biggest mag

It was MAGNATIC DREAMS/MNX which lifed 12 issues and 
needed 1 whole disc (both sides).

Most creative scene member

It is Maduplec/CREST who actually works as Coder, Musician,
Graphician and swapper).

Longest demo serie

At the moment it is Censor´s Wonderland demos with 9 parts. The
10th part is also planned. Also Oxyron´s Coma Light serie is at the
moment by 8 parts but the 9th part should be released at the 
LIGHT party.
How many beer, is hier?                    

Who rules now?

Again a "Who rules" chapter? Yes but here we´ll show the charts
which guys made the most records or first routines.
We won´t say that these charts shows the best coders nowadys but
it shows which guys made the most best/first routines.
Of course the charts now aren´t very fair because there are many
records missing but that will be better in future.

Best coders:

2.	Axis	Oxyron		2 
3.	Graham	Oxyron		1
	Slammer	Camelot		1
	SES	Genesis		1
