PFS wanted.

Hi,

I'm looking for PFS3. The version stored on the EAB file server is a cracked one, and can't be patched to the newest version Does anyone have the original (with key file if necessary)? As far as I know it can't be bought anymore, so getting the original from someone is the only way to get it.

Any help is appreciated

No, actually The Softhut apparently still sells it... for only $59.95 Well, I'm not paying that, so forget it.

i had a quick look at the INSTALL script of the aminet patch; it seems, we also need a tool from the original installation: "pfs3:c/getserial". this is not included in the Faith release :/
hmmm, let alone the serial - those patches might not get applied to the altered files of the Faith release, i guess *umpf* :/

and someone very skilled could patch it, so we can enter any serial - that would be a good start

- but i still think, we will fail, when it comes to patching the files :/

Edit: it's not really hard to follow the update INSTALL file; the patching itself, will be done by a simple spatch command:
Quote:
(if (= 0 (run "pfs3:c/spatch" (cat "-o" #temp) (cat "-p" #patchfile) #source
...
(abort #dest " could not be patched. "
so someone can just try to patch it on the cli. for example:
faith release file: PFS3/data/eng/fs/PFS3
aminet patch file: patch/eng/PFS3.pch
and now the patch command in a cli window:
Quote:
spatch -oPFS3_updated -pPFS3.pch C:PFS3
well, if this patch works, then you have a updated version called "PFS3_updated".

*try only with non installed files, dont risk loosing / destroying your partition - DONT try if you are in DOUBT!!*

if it only checks the version string then you could change it with a hex editor
I would be amazed if this worked though, just a thought

hmm, i've no clue about these spatch'es; at least the patched areas must fit the source-binary. maybe a checksum is also provided within the patch, to ensure, it hits the correct source-bin - not that easy at all

Edit:
- version string of PFS3 says: $VER: Professional-File-System-II 18.3 *strange enough*
- but you can also read in the same binary: Professional File System 3 V5.0
- the aminet patch: "upgrade from PFS3 V5.1 to V5.3"
= we are lost a bit

thnx gulliver; maybe Foul will test it, but since we have no serial ...
also with a serial it will fail the same as it did with manual patching, i'm pretty sure ;/
Edit#1: the file consists of Zeros only *uh* ?!

hmm, this aminet patch can work as an upgrade from psf2 to psf3?
on DeviousTools #155 there is PFS2 17.3, not cracked, comes with serial - it also has the getserial command.
on this #155 there is also a keymaker for PFS2 included.
DeviousTools are on eab file server (user/andy...) - anyone want try?

Edit#1:
- version info of pfs2/english/l/PFS-II : "Professional File System II V4.1"
- so the aminet update from 4.1 to 4.2 might work ( PFS2_4142.lha )
