Reformation #3 FairLight


Reformation #3                  FairLight

	From our lives beginning on
	We are pushed in little forms
	No one asks us how we like to be
	They´re the ones to see

Salute to another issue of our mag. Well, what happend? TCC is 
over and therefore quite much happend nowadays. Read it in the
following chapters.

Well, it seems that more and more guys believe that Black Priest
makes this mag nearly alone but that is wrong (!) so we´ll print 
here our organisation, as Enduro thinks he got not enough fame!?
Hmm.. ok..

After Enduro and TG-ACME joined, they more and more made
the editor works. That means that they send Black Priest the most
text of this mag and Black Priest makes then the selection of 
which of the text will come in the final issue. So you can see we 
work side on side and that is the secret of that mag.

To show our work more exactly get this: 

Black Priest / FairLight

organisator, publisher of the mag, some editor works, main
interviewer, selects the outfit and design, chief and writer of
this mag

Enduro / FairLight

2nd organisator, editor, most text by him, spreader, scandanavian
party mover

TG-ACME / Epic

little editor works as he is quite busy at the time, spreader

In future we´ll also tell you who makes the chapter, this will look
like this:

Chapter		Done by

Editorial		Black Priest
News and Rumours	Enduro (most),TG-ACME,Black Priest
Charts			Enduro
Interviews		Black Priest
Secret Letters		mostly supplied by Enduro
Sundries		Enduro
Tests			tested by Black Priest supplied mostly
			by Enduro
Scene Records		Black Priest
Game Corner		Doc Holliday/Trance and Enduro
Future News		Black Priest

Contact Corner got kicked out of this mag now as you can read 
enough of them in all other (lamer) mags.

Official Spreader!

Well, we finally have now our own official spreader after some 
conferences with...


		... as he is at the moment the #1 spreader!
The Reformation               FairLight

Reactions - Feedback

After the 2nd issue we got some real constructiv critics.
Well, after all the "great mag, proffesional mag,..." there were
also some negativ critics like:

a) To few text...

	Hmm, yes it´s not that big filled but I guess you got a 
	wrong view because of the proportional charset as we 
	guess there is at least as much text as in Shock. Anyway
	as you see this time we have really much.

	Another point is that the News chapter has the highest 
	priority and so when we get some real hot news we release
	a issue also if we don´t have filled all chapters. Guess you 
	understand this.

b) Many scene records are wrong...

	Well, we aren´t gods so we can´t know all. Just help us and
	tell us the right records and we´ll print it. As more guys 
	who help us as faster we´ll have serious records.

c) Vote System with dead people

	Yes, we admit you are right but we guess that a Doc, 
	who is down at the moment, knows the cracking scene 
	better than a newcomer cracker. 

	Another thing is that we think about to change this
	charts system again. 

	1) To restart the normal charts (Pah how lame)
	2) To make normal charts where all known cracker may 
	    vote for crackers, all known musicians may vote for
	    musicians, and so on...

Time will show what happens...

Some facts:

- All types of groups have the change to enter the charts, not 
   only Demo or Crackergroups!

- All members in the groups on the charts are at least registrated
   in one counted magazine.

- Each point is count a member or a mag receives in the selected

- The charts were done by Enduro

Magz released this period were:

- A-Head #2
- Epistula #4
- Inmpulse #3
- Flashback #7
- Goldrush #4
- Genetic Dreams #17
- Newspress #9

(As you see there´re some changes of the selection but don´t blame
us, blame the editors which haven´t released their magazines 
under this period like: Clique,WOW,Oxyron,...)

But the charts give you a 100% fair view of the 20 strongest all-
round groups in the scene at the moment!)

    work is at a army-base 350km away from my home, I work 
    there as an "Konstabelf" which is abit like the american cor-
    poral I guess..

TR: What´s your opinion to co-op´s? Now some fanatics also did 
       triple ones.

C: Well, I guess a co-op is OK, aslong as people in it can go on  
    with it without disputes.. You all know , that we in EPIC were
    in co-op with DEVICE recently, I think it worked out pretty
    well, though it lasted for such a short time..
    back in my old "cool" group HOLOCAUST we were also in co-
    op with a group which was called FRESH for a brief moment,
    so I guess you say I have my experience with co-op´s..

    Still, I find triple co-op´s abit exacturated.. or am I wrong?

TR: Do you think that anyone can find an uncrackable pro-
       tection? "Toki" almost made it.

C: Hmm.. tricky question.. I truly don´t know.. I´ve never meet a 
    game I couldn´t handle if I just gave myself the time it needed,
    but then again I´ve never had any of the legendary "hard" ones
    like for instance "Toki" like you mentioned!

TR: Would it be exciting if you would join an absolute unknown 
      group, which you make to an elite one?

C: Hmm.. ask yourself the question, could I do it.. Hmm.. actually,
    the day EPIC was formed I swore to god it would be my last 
    group, so would I leave someday I would leave the scene 
    together with it.. it sounds like a fun idea, but naahh.. not for 
    me thanks anyway..

TR: OK, tell us your opinion to ...

      ... the reproaches of Jack Alien about your cracks.

C: Haha.. first of all, I have to say I´ve always had a hard time 
    taking that guy seriously.. I guess the whole reason he´s pissed 
    with me, was the fact that he got kicked out of IMAGE almost 
    a year ago.. I don´t know, also I don´t give a shit about the  
    things he rattles off, but I really don´t care about him, it seems
    the hardest attack he can make towards me is to write a anti-
    note.. Now, yoy gotta agree with me, that´s pretty weak, isn´t 

    Still, alot of people acts big in my face.. take for instance a guy
    called Oxidy/Fairlight.. Now, personally, I´ve got nothing  
    against this guy at all.. I spoke to him briefly in Aars with a 
    huge hangover while I was arguing with DMI/ACRISE, so I   
    said something to him, can´t exactly remember what, just to 
    get him off me till I was finished talking to DMI. Perhaps I was
    pretty rude, but I made several attempts getting in touch with
    him both under and after the party, and nothing happend, 
    until I called "Warez Aquarium" lately and saw a pretty nasty 
    comment about me..

    Then, finally  there is Satan/GP, who, according to himself, 
    owns the scene.. attacking me all the time, no reason, I hardly 
    know the guy, but in my eyes he is even too stupid to put 
    ordinary human-sense in the head off.. Heck, he finds it 
    amusing to call me up in the middle of the night and hang up 
    the phone, when I take it.. pretty childish, isn´t it? Who can 
    have the slightest bit of respect for such a guy!


Crossfire/EPIC tells ff.

    Infact, people who don´t like me, I don´t give a shit about..
    Indeed, why should I?

TR: ... the current modem scene?

C: Wowsers, I never regretted buying a modem.. I started out with
    a 1200-Bauders, but just got a 2400-Bauder the very day I´m
    giving this interview as a matter of fact!
    The modemscene is cool, after I started out here I can´t under-
    stand that I found the mail-scene so good before.. These days
    I couldn´t survive without a modem.. that´s one thing which is

    But talking about the modem-scene. I would like to make a 
    short advert, if you don´t mind..
    I´ve opend a board myelf now... It´s called "The gateway" and
    runs on Aktie-Modded C-Base.. only 5 days after I opened it,  
    nearly 20 had locked on, and about 85% of them are top-elite..
    so if you´re another one of this kind, please don´t hestigate to 

    The Gateway

    ask me or my two co-sysops Loyality/EPIC or Decade/EPIC 
    for access.. there´s a special sub for special friends of ours, so it
    is a shame to miss.. Call right now!!!

TR: ... the Super Nitendo scene?

C: Beats me.. haven´t tried it out yet.. I´ve simply been too busy.. 

TR: ... the difference between Amiga and C64 boards?

C: Hmm.. I never called any Amiga (or PC for that matter!) boards
    so I can´t tell.. But I find C64-boards cool, in europe, aswell as  
    in the states..

TR: ... the so called "Elite groups"?

C: Well, elite.. hard to answer, cause in my eyes there are only 
    very few elite-groups around.. -LEGEND- is elite with all their
    full -pricer- releases, infact I was glad to see them back.. 
    -ILLUSION- is cool as always.. -TALENT- is starting to get 
    back now, another great thing..  
    Hmm.. I don´t like the word and the whole elite-concept, but 
    some are for sure: Legend, Illusion, RSI, Chromance, Success,
    F4CG.. coming to think about it, I haven´t seen anything from  
    any other groups for quite a long time..

TR: ... your enemies?

C: Well, as I said before, when I think of my enemies, people like 
    Satan/GENESIS, Oxidy/FLT(?), Jerk Alien+Cunt Zero, I can´t 
    really get myself to dislike them, cause they all act like spoiled
    kids who, for the first time in their life, did not get their   

TR: ... our mag?

C: I was positively surprised when I saw the first issue of your 
    mag.. I think it´s very cool, nice and different outfit and so on,  
    only you should get more news, etc. But I know it´ll come in the
    near future..  
    (red.: Just read the Editorial and that will be cleared!)

TR: ... the HOLOCAUST times?

C: Haha, oh well.. everybody knows "Exory/Holocaust" don´t they?
    Well, I regret those times for sure, they sure as hell destroyed 
    alot of things for me when I returned to the scene 8 months 
    later! Still, I think the only reason who bothers to tell this 
    thing as a secret is Satan/GP. This jerk still haven´t realized
    that I told it to the scene myself over a half a year ago. (The 
    note "Exory´ here!")..


Crossfire/EPIC tells end

TR: Well, so much about your opinions. How was the troubles
       with Mason?

C: Hmm.. no trouble.. Well, he got booted from EPIC shortly after
    the birth because of reasons I´d rather not goo into now, but I 
    talk to him often, and as far as I know, we are good friends..
    Hard to tell, cause people backstabs each. Others daily, so who 

TR: How would you describe the organistation in EPIC?

C: We all work side by side.. The members are: Cruel and Clive 
    in Belgium, Merlin in Holland, Sonic in Germany, The Torch in
    Sweden, TG-ACME in Norway, here in Denmark we have 
    Decane,Flower,Jason,Marie and Loyalty, not to forget our 
    american member Dutchman who runs our WHQ "Power
    Surge - XXX XXX XXXX)..
    and finally ofcourse myself in DK! 

TR: Who are you original suppliers?

C: Alot of different people.. some I get from our members,  
    others I buy from Distribution Companies, etc.

TR: At last I give you the change for some words to the scene
       outside about your disputed cracks.

C: About the bugged cracks.. I never claimed to be perfect, so I  
    won´t deny the fact that I may have release some cracks that 
    bugs somewhere, I must admit I don´t always have the time to 
    do a 100% check, but I doubt it´s as many as Jerk Alien talked 
    about.. He just wanna make it look worse that it is..

TR: Ok, and finally, wanna say hello to any of your friends..

C: Yeah, all in EPIC, Lexi/LEGEND, Atmos/ILL, Tricket/DOM,
    Equinox/EMPIRE,Ice Breaker/DWI, Swan Song/DEMONIX, 
    and whoever else I´ve learnd to know pretty good since I 
    started calling out..

TR: OK, then.. let´s say "Thanks Kim" for your work..

C: Hey, you´re welcome any time, Gerald..

Wizard of Taipan recracks?

Article by Dannie/Success I looked through my sendings I found a swapping offer by a 
guy called Wizard/Taipan. I looked through his disc and found a 
file called "Magic Fields+3/TP". You should know this game was 
Success first released and it was cracked and supplied by me. 
So I was interested to see their (Taipan´s) version.
After I saw the intro it was obvious, that this group is one of the
lowest, but let´s go on...

After I´ve preessed space I nearly felt off my chair... their trainer
menu looked exactly the same as the one I´m using!! Just 3 lines of
text were missing. Well, I examined the memory and there it 

The trainer menu was located at $7a00 (in my version of Magic 
Fields it´s placed at $5a00). I compared ´their´ trainer menu with 
the one I used in my version and guess what? Yep, it was exactly 
the same, byte after byte !!! (They only changed the hi-byte
of the text-adress!)
S those suckers just moved my trainer menu from $5a00 to $7a00
OK, I thought, let´s go on... if you see a cheat in my version, than
the hi-saver is also dis-abled (put $2c in $c261), and this can also
found in Taipan´s version.  

Next thing: My version offers a level-skip. Also Taipan´s version 
does this.

The only thing is that both routines are located on the same 
adress ($801d) and they look exactly the same !!!

So it´s really a fine recrack you fags in Taipan did. You guys really
must have nerves. You didn´t even change my trainer-menu, 
even the colours are the same !!!

In your (totally lame) intro you used a nice slogan: "MESS WITH 

I can only tell you: "Continue this way, and your slogan will come  
true, soon." (especially the 2nd part of it)!

If anyone wants to check both versions out, feel free to write to 
my adress.

PS. Hey you lamers in Taipan, I want a explanation for all that  
The Reformation               FairLight

Pal/NTSC madness

Article by Silver Surfer/Success

The reason why I wrote this, is that I´m fed up with the crazy  
situation in the scene these days!

As some of you may remember, I have been in the scene for 
almost 10 years now. But it seems that all people who are modem 
traders have lost their sences!

Back in the old days, a first release was a game which was re-
leased by a cracking group before anyone else!
(That´s why it´s called first release)
But that seems not longer to be the case! Nowadays a crack must 
be fixed to NTSC before it´s called a first release.
This seems rather strange to me! Why does a game need to be 
fixed for use is NTSC before we in europe may call it a first

Besides this there is an other problem. Fixing games seems to be 
harder and harder and many good fixers have left the scene...

That´s why we in SUCCESS have decided to go back to the old days
Whenever we crack a game and we are the first to release it, we 
call it first release. We put it on the US and euro boards and 
spread it by mail.

At the same time we give it to some US fixers to have it NTSC
fixed for the USA scene!

The Computer Crossroad´93 report

Article again by our party reporter: Enduro/FAIRLIGHT so 
prepare on a interesting report!

Well, after the christmas party it was time to be present at a 
mega party again. This time at 29-31 May in Goeteborg, Sweden!

The party was held in one very big hall and there was space for 
over 3000 visitors but only 1700 showed up all in all (Amiga+C64+

Near the hall there was a big amusement park with many cool 
attractions (Hey got stuck Aaron!?) this was the real cool thing
about the party, not the party itself! Many discos and so on was
also in the neighourhood so no problems to enjoy ourselves, hehe!
But those who actually stayed at the party all time, can I under-
stand why they didn´t have the time of their life...

KYD/BALLE held their second concert and it was much better 
than the one in Aars! After that, there were some movies shown 
at the big screen, but most of them were very old! In opposite to 
Aars, you were allowed to sleep in the party hall, but for the 
youngest, there were also a special "sleep hall"! Also a cafeteria
was found with the hottest "Hackerburgers" around! (Nice sales-
girl too..)

The deadlines appeared on the second day and there were some
problems for ANTIC to hold them, but did manage it anyway, 
hmm! At 13.00 the GFX-compo was on and the piccies held a very
high standart!
Compeditors like Ogami,Joe,Creeper,Dragon,Electric,Death and 
the last years winner TMT were in! Great art from everyone!

Later the music-compo started, also here some cool musics, and 
Ed,Creeper and Joe shocked us with amazing digisounds!

The great event started at 21.00, the demo-compo! After rather  
low quality in Aars, this compo amazed even the PC+Amiga 
owners! Groups like Censor,Antic,Oxyron,Booze Design,Noice 
thrilled us all and great apploudes were heard all over the place!
(The FLT-demo called "Runemania" got the most,or?)

The last day was a standartday with the usual copying of discs and
so on.. At 15.00 the price celebration was held, and the funny 
thing was that Ed/Wrath Designs didn´t want to accept his victory
in the music-compo, but wanted to give his money to Pri/Oxyron
who didn´t place himself anywhere! Neither Pri wanted the money
so at last Ed took´em...
(strange world eh!?)

After the celebration, the party ended quite and peacefully...

More facts about the party

- There were about 150 C-64 guys which is the lowest score ever!
   Does this mean that the scene is nearly dead, or?

- In one of the attractions called "Flumeride" (A waterype roller-
   coaster), Aaron/FLT got stuck and two workers had to pull him
   out of there! He was too heavy because of all water, right 

- Creeper/Antic surprised us all, because he wasn´t ill this time, 
   but ANTIC kept the honour because Joe puked twice!

- An enormus guy showed up and everyone thought it was Air-
   wolf, but not! Right behind Airwolf came withat least 100  
   pounds lighter weight! Good work, Norman!

- Some Neonazis explained their ideas of a new Sweden, but were
   thrown outside till they changed their minds!

- Surfer/ACTIVE had a girlcompo with the masterhunter 
   Enduro (me) and thought he won after talked to a four years
   younger virgin! (Unfair play, I say) Surfer did also bribe some
   friends with pictures of his idol "Rosanne Barr" (Wonder why?)
   but that gave him a bad influence, hehe!
   The result isn´t yet ready because of all minus points scored by

- The coolest group at the party was "Fairlight-Amiga" because 
   with their nice temper, everyone sang "Halleluja". 

- The most scared guy was Black Samurai/CAMELOT after re-
   ceving a message with the words: "You´re mine!" (Mr.Mister 
   was it you??)

- Hmm, TDK/LEGEND and Jive/MANIAX should have went 
   with Airwolf´s car to the party but didn´t show up!

- Someone got his A1200 with equipment stolen, return it to the
   party team please!

- A funny thing is that Joe/ANTIC and Ed/WRATH are "Twins"!
   This is a historical moment, don´t you think? Congratulations 
   ruling twins!

1st vector cubes

This was made by Maduplec in his quite new demo called "Wild".
He also was surprised that noone made this effect before as it was
shown on Amiga ages ago and he made the routine a year ago but 
now finally released!

1st vector projections

Made by TTS/Oxyron in Coma Light 10. 

1st bitmap vector box

Again made by TTS/Oxyron in Coma Light 10. To realize this 
effect TTS used 6534 multicolored plots. And of course all is 

1st filled rubber vectors

Done by Axis/Oxyron in Coma Light 10. Of course realtime too!
