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.
I actually was referring to Andreas and Mr.Vince, I perfectly understand why you reacted like you did. =)

Yes, and often the cracks supported external drives while the original did not. However, there are still a lot of cases where it was exactly the other way 'round.

Yes he did. And someone who prefers "hard facts" should better inform himself before claiming certain things and jumping on the "let's bash Don Adan" bandwagon. He critizised Don Adan for giving false information yet he does exactly the same! Something's wrong with that!

We still have a nice discussion here, I've seen a lot worse threads. =)
