Which cracktro had the most views?

Some ideas that come to mind...

Turrican II by Defjam?
Lemmings by Skid Row?
Pinball Dreams by Fairlight?
...

Which crack had the widest circulation? Any estimates?

Interceptor by Unit A?
(which would be quite a scandal)

Great Giana Sisters (Red Sector Inc) certainly had the highest ratio of people seeing the cracked version vs the original version

Possibly this one purely because it was used multiple times on various releases.

I'd say Lemmings. Everyone had that crack. Literally everyone.

Super Off Road is notorious these days because of the picture used. However back in the day it wasn't that widely spread. Certainly not to the same extent that Lemmings or Turrican 2 was.

I still wonder why the Amiga had such a huge scene. Yeah everyone had cracked games for their C64 or PC, but they were never spread like the Amiga stuff was. Most people I knew didn't have a single original. Not one.

I doubt I understand the question.

There are two, both from PRESTiGE!

If you owned an Amiga and missed either of these, then consider me genuinely impressed.

For the second video, I actually wanted it to be one with "Kid Chaos" in the title, but on those videos someone recorded it with either "Filter" on or in "22kHz" (or both) Why do that to good music?

Most people had chucked their Amigas in the bin by the time the two above releases came out. Not very widely spread at all.

IIRC the background gfx in that intro were generated randomly.

...but for me it has to be either the iconic "Fairlight - Where Dreams Come True" or the "Paranoimia" text coming straight at ya!!!

Yes; Skid Row, Defjam, Crystal and Prestige cracktro are right up there too though
