I can't remember the quality of the cracks anymore, although I know that certainly Fairlight, Quartex and Crystal always assured me that the game I was about to play wouldn't crash.
Edit: And I forgot to elaborate on my vote
. Crystal because their intro's were of a stunningly beautiful simplicity.
In any case, drifting a bit off-topic here. Someone just mentioned he's an ex-Quartex member, and he mentioned "group money". I have always been wondering how these groups got their money and their releases. I can imagine contacts in the industry, press, etc, but I'd like to hear/read some actual stories on this. Anyone care to post something on this matter?
