Don't get me wrong mate, some of his points are valid, but perhaps if he put them across in a less belligerent way, i'd be more inclined to take notice.

Its rather naive to just blame crackers, when in a lot of cases, the game itself wasn't coded to use any extra hardware whatsoever, including extra drives.

By late 1991, I would say most decent crackers were utilising more than one drive as a standard irrespective of what the original allowed.

Mr.Vince picked the wrong game with Turrican 2, but his reasoning behind it is valid. Lots of 1 disk longtrack MFM games simply won't fit back onto 1 disk 100%.

I struggled like hell to get Snow Bros on 1 disk.

I didn't want this thread turning into a miniature flame war, but i'm afraid Don Adan pretty much brought that upon himself. We could have had a nice discussion, instead he decided to get personal about it.
