You will not be able to write longtracks with any standard Amiga. Looking from that perspective, the Turrican games where never actually "protected". They just over-formatted the discs so they would not need a second one, also causing pirate copies to come on two disks.

I can assure you Factor 5 didn't just rely on their MFM system to protect the game, all Turrican games have checksums in them, that is protection.
