Sure, but no need to stress yourself. We have lots of material right now, thanks to you among others. I'm drafting a database to make sense of it, I've noted your MK extras down as future uploads.

Coop, can you provide archives for the games not on site that you're reviewing? (Powerslave, Star Wars...)

Nice MK review Coop.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I didn't get a notification that anyone had posted in here until today.

I can, but they're not archives made by me. I found Powerslave on Abandonware Utopia, Star Wars: The Arcade Game and Thexder on XTC Abandonware, and the Spear of Destiny mission packs via a Rapidshare link. As such, should I try and upload them myself, or send the links to an admin/updater? If the latter, who?



JMB- Thanks

uploads it yourself in your Folder. We have Thexder already submitted by SlowCoder so uploads the other Stuff and post it here.

Alrighty. I'll do that this evening. I'll also be uploading a slightly updated version of my Powerslave review, as it needed some extra info about the cracked version of the game. I also left out a rather important tidbit by accident, which was added as well. I'll let you guys know when they're all on the ftp area.

Um, we have a problem.

The cracked version of Powerslave seems to have been tampered with in a bad way. While the hackers did increase the speed of the strafing (which is good), they seem to have removed/lost the ability to change the mouse sensitivity (bad) and the mouselook key (very bad). I tried putting the hacked executable into my installed copy of PS, and the changes (good and bad) were still in place. I don't know if they used the beta version of the executable (there is a beta of PS floating around) or what, but the loss of those two rather important abilities is pretty detrimental to the game. So while they fixed one issue by doing what they did, they created two others.

Powerslave requires the CD to be in the drive when you play, and I can't find a No CD patch for the game anywhere. So unless someone here is able to hack the executable, or able to find a non-screwy hacked version, I'm not sure what to do.



Edit: I should note that I found several other sites with PS on them, but they all have the same cracked version.

Does it check at startup or just before you start or load a game? Because if its the former, I can possibly crack it.

Right before you start/load a game. You get to the title screen, choose what to do, and then a notice to put the CD in pops up. From there, you either do just that, or choose the "abort" option to quit the game.
