Who Framed Roger Rabbit issue

The issue being, mainly, that the version available at WHDownload does not crack the protection check. Three wrong answers (or three presses of Enter) dumps you back to the WB1.3 screen (it doesn't auto-quit back to your real WB).

Which is pretty strange, seeing as the slave does incorporate the Lockpick crack code. No doubt a hard-patched EXE would solve the problem.

Tested under the latest ClassicWB Full pack in WinUAE 2.3.0.

Just tried the preinstalled version from WHDownload. The protection was removed properly, or is there a protection check after level 1?

There is indeed a protection check after Level 1. Twice I tried it and twice it brought up the protection screen instead of skipping it (which is what the Lockpick patch is meant to achieve). Strange. It can't all be dependent on exact memory positions or anything like that can it?

Maybe Jotd didn't expected further protection checks after the first one. Write a bugreport on mantis then.

Does Lockipick Remove all protection checks? If so use the Lockpick Patched Disk to install the game or you plan on doing it yourself?

Also theres different versions of the game and I think some dont contain the ending - Not sure what version is on WHDownload

Edit : 1707 - 1.0 893.16 KB 2006-12-11 so not the version with the ending

Just uploaded a preinstalled version from rfasel75's fixed original with the working end scene into the Zone. Of course it doesn't fix further protection checks after level 1.

Edit: Do you have to change the disk after level 1? Maybe JOTD doesn't checked the second disk.

As far as I can acertain - from testing three different revisions of the game (gathered from SPS, TOSEC and past contents of the Zone) - there is only the one protection check that pops up after the first driving section. The patch in Lockpick works only with the initial version (v1.0?) - presumably the one with the borked (lack of) ending - and is designed to skip the screen altogether. Which is an improvement on the WOW crack, which merely restricted the list of questions to a specific single one (though I'm not sure how it went and did that) so that you'd have to remember only one answer.

(On the subject of cracking, I've been trying as of this time to find the routine that calls the protection screen in the later two versions to determine if they can be cracked also.)

@Method assuming you used v1.0 ran it through Lockpick and WHDload installed are all protection checks patched?

Dont realy know the game maybe Method can say? V1.2 might not work with the WHDload install or the problem is with all versions?

Yeah ill check it out Thanks, It is quite a horid game but be nice to know if the WHDload install is 100%

Edit: I said 100% I meant works 100% without the crash at the end.
If the Copy protection can be patched then great

It isn't cracked, and it won't be with the particular version used in what you uploaded as the protection data is stored in a different location (which I have yet to find) than what the Lockpick patch expects.

I should probs mention that I did already try the fixed version with the WHDLoad slave recently and got the same results.

At least i have found 2 different scene releases, additional to the well known "WOW" crack.
Quote:
Who Framed Roger Rabbit v1.0 (1988)(Buena Vista)(Disk 1 of 2)[cr Far Side Software]
Who Framed Roger Rabbit v1.1 (1988)(Buena Vista)(Disk 1 of 2)[cr PNA]
...but i have no idea, if end part is working in one or both versions.

@mods: move post to suitable thread in TOSEC section:

@mai, I've copied your post to the other thread. You can now edit them both as you wish.

I tried to crack the protection, but it's stupid: I'm unable to pass first level

If someone can create a WinUAE savestate (from floppies) just before/during the protection screen it will be easier for me.

The best protection of this game is the game itself. It's so hard & frustrating...

This isn't a hard game at all. Easily completable. Heck, I played through it a few times right now just for testing different scenarios :P

I've uploaded to the zone a save state of the password screen directly after level 1. The password is "ELEVATOR". This is from the CAPS/SPS version since all ADFs that I can find are all patched to always use the password "SMITH".

This is the only protection in the game. There's no disk protection and there's no further manual checks.

I haven't looked at the Lockpick patch, but I patched it myself in about 1 minute (literally). Open the file "RogerRabbit" on disk 1 and at offset 567B, change from 18 to 14. This patch makes it so anything can be entered (even nothing at all). I've tested this patch and it's 100%. I've tested all scenarios (including both winning and losing on level 2), death screens, complete screens, etc. Everything works.

So if there's an updated WHDLoad slave, I guess I can test (under WinUAE) even though I'm not around that often.

----

EDIT:

Even though the title screens all say v1.0, I think the ADF versions might be different (anyone want to checksum the files on the disks to confirm?) since the manual protection screens are different to the IPF version. Also, the ADF versions have "LOADING ZONE" screens when loading. I don't recall the IPF having them. Seems like the IPF might be an earlier version?
