100% cracked working version of Hook in ADF form

So here's the gist.


I am aware that the Fairlight version of Hook is not cracked perfectly. Mainly in that some hidden protection checks(?) ensure that three key items are omitted from the game, making completion impossible(?).

The WHDLoad version supposedly fixes this problem, but alas the fixes are obviously not applied directly to the images, but loaded into memory during startup.


I was just wondering how easy it would be to hardcode the fixes so that ADF lovers may similarly enjoy a fully fixed floppy title?

Thanks.

Can you reupload Galahad's version to the zone Belg? I missed it and it's not on the file server either.

I don't know if anyone else grabbed them from the zone after I did them, I don't think i've still got them but i'll look.

Right, now i'm not sure if I actually completed the Italian version.

Laser (he now banned!) provided me Spanish and Italian versions, but I remember one of the Italian disks being a bit shit, but I can't for the life of me remember if I solved that and then released it, i can't see in that Hook thread me mentioning releasing it in the Zone, but did for Spanish and English.

Perhaps I didn't do it then?

Hmm, this thread only mentions the English and Spanish version : http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=31463 (at least it only mentions that you uploaded that two).

Edit : Ah, you found that thread too

Well if anyone other than Laser has the Italian disk images, I can crack it properly, because I was working from a 'cracked' version before, and that just like the Spanish and English versions wasn't cracked properly.

So any Italians have it backed up somewhere?

Even though Belgarath already did in another thread, enough to get all the screenshots for HOL?

If you had searched for Hook here, it would have brought up that very thread.

So again..... sigh
