As the cine file in question should be the same for all versions a small "on thy fly" patch which works for all versions shouldn't be much of a problem.

It's definitely much more work and an interesting challenge. It is, however, not needed. Then again, what's needed on a machine that has been dead for several decades now?

Btw, which .cmp file is it that needs to be fixed? I've decrunched all of them but couldn't find the sequence you've posted.

WHDLoad is a tool which allows coders to write so called "slaves" which contain code to fix bugs and patches (f.e. to load data from HD instead of using a trackloader). The WHDLoad patches usually contain the cleanest cracks as they were done using the original games.
