Wordsworth 2

Can anybody supply me with the proper details to start Wordworth 2?

I need:

Name:
Orginization:
License Number:

I know there is a serial number floating around, but it doesn't work. I believe you need the other information to go with it.

Is there a working cracked version? The one that I found didn't work either.

i have a load of keys i need to go through.. but i did find a wordworth.nr file..
it just says

2407684

doesnt say which wordworth.. will look in the archives.. once i load up the emulator due to the archives being LZX..

ok.. looking through my archive.. i found WordWorth 2.. 11 disks., as there seems to be 2 of each..
named like this..

Wordworth v2.0 (1992)(Digita)[cr GOD](Disk 1 of 6)(WP)[f].adf i assumed the f was fixed.. so i booted from that disk.. and yep its cracked..
included with on the boot screen is the serial.. which says use any name and company.. so continue loaded it up and used the serial and put in my name and company.. aka HOME. .and it loaded perfectly.. i guess to install it onto a hdd you just need to copy the contents to you hdd from the other disc and make assigns..
serial it gave was 3247616..

At least in v3 and up the serial numbers are generic. Meaning that the Name and Organization fields can be whatever you want, i.e., the contents of those fields don't determine what the serial number is.

How would that work in real life? No customer could run the software he just bought, until he registered it via snail mail and got sent a license number that matches his name/organisation? That's kinda hard to believe.

I'm making a desktop Dynamite RP9 for AF. WW2 is in the pack and I wanted it working.


Thanks for the keys and cracked disk info, I finally got it working.

You would think their would be loads of legit serials out there for the Desktop Dynamite pack in apps without need for cracked versions.

So, do you thnk that the serial is tied to a specific WW2 disk that comes with a Desktop Dynamite pack?

I can say with 99.9% certainty that it’s not. The number you found should work.

serial seems to be a set of 7 numbers.. so could even try 11111111 or 1234567.. one in the picture seems to have 2 numbers repeated. so 40million+ combo's?

Hmmm, food for thought there Andy.


Can anyone supply me with a Uncracked copy of WordWorth 2?

I'll try Andy's suggestion with the serials.


Thanks.

If that's true then why add a different serial with every DD pack and why the need to crack it?

Each DD pack came with registration cards. In this case to register your unique serial number. Helped Digita track where there software is being used I guess. Any code you find will likely work, probably only with that specific application version though and not the boxed original.

Which leads me onto a question. Has any of the 'Pack in' Software, from any A500-A4000 Amiga pack been archived anywhere with serials? (no cracks) Some of it being unique versions like the 3 disc version of f1gp and DpaintIII with Numpad emu for the A600.

Hi What version of DPaintIII has numpad emul is that the V3.25 from TOSEC??

I tried the WordWorth S.E on the coverdisk and I didn't like that as I couldn't open a custom screen DBLNTSC.

To elaborate on Mad-Matt's point, with a lot of productivity software you needed to register by mailing in a card with a legit serial number. Only then would you be entitled to phone support or updates. A lot of vendors would only send patch disks to registered users instead of posting them to their BBS. As an anti-piracy strategy, this placed the value on the support rather than the software itself. There were marketing benefits to getting customers on their mailing list, too. As to how successful this strategy was, that's debatable.

I presume pirates unnecessarily cracked these programs in order to protect their identities (i.e., if they were distributing a copy that they purchased and registered legitimately they wouldn't want their associated serial number being distributed and traced back to them), and/or as a form of self-promotion to show off their cracking skillz.

Not sure about this specifically, but in case anyone didn't know there is the Numpad commodity for system-wide numpad emulation on the A600.
