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!

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 cracker-groups. * 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 disc-magazine. * 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!) ().

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 computer! 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 again.. 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. etc. 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.. Interviewer was Black Priest
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 him. 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 weeks! 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 because... 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. ALDERAN: 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!). UGH: 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, or? 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!) Troubles, troubles, troubles, troubles
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 MSX: JVD,MSK,GM,ALD,HP - 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! Warez Aquarium ++XX/XXX - XXXXX

Fairlight 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! Paradize Their new demo will be named "2nd best".

We would be also glad if you tell us when we write a wrong record. 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.

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 record.) 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?
