[REQ] Crack for Colossus Chess X SPS #1510

Can't find a crack for this, none of the parameter copiers like Maverick/Freecopy or Lockpick has it listed!

Seems the SPS version is different to the BS1/QTX cracks as the exe is a different size, so not sure what the difference actually is other than it's not cracked

I can use the manual off HOL but if anyone has a crack or would make a crack that would be cool !

ADF in the Zone!

How appropriate, SCX cracking CCX, works a treat

Muchas Gracias!

I did, he's saying the BS1/QTX versions have a different size game exe.... so what?

Unless you guys are saying the BS1/QTX cracks are a pre-release or something?

Therefore it is reasonable to assume that it is a revised version with bug fixes and the like.

You caught me
Actually the first crack for #1510 is from Galahad but I'm so blind I haven't even noticed it...
Well, mine contain a fix for processor >000, that probably no one will ever use considering how "good" the game is

In fact it's not the crack the point of my release, but the inclusion of a little program for real time support for those stupid 68000 programs that use the
move sr,<ea>
instruction(s) and this is one of those.

Fix010+ Code:
Code:
		section code,code

start		movea.l	4.w,a6
		moveq	#1,d0
		and.w	296(a6),d0		; AttnFlags
		beq.b	_x

		jsr	_LVODisable(a6)
		lea	start-4(pc),a2
		movea.l	(a2),a3
		adda.l	a3,a3
		lea	4(a3,a3.l),a3
		lea	_v(pc),a5
		jsr	_LVOSupervisor(a6)
		move.l	$20(a5),(a3)+		; privilege violation
		move.l	a3,$20(a5)
		clr.l	(a2)
		jsr	_LVOEnable(a6)
		moveq	#0,d0
_x		rts

_v		movec	VBR,a5
		rte


		section	code_detach,code

_old	        ds.l	1

_priv	        move.l	a6,-(sp)
		movea.l	4+2(sp),a6
		move.w	(a6),a6             ; opcode
		exg	a6,d0
		andi.w	#$ffc0,d0	    ; isolate move SR bitcode
		cmpi.w	#$40c0,d0
		exg	a6,d0
		beq.b	_m
		movea.l (sp)+,a6
		move.l	_old(pc),-(sp)
		rts

_m 		movem.l	d0-d1/a0-a1,-(sp)
		movea.l	4*5+2(sp),a6
		bset	#1,(a6)            ; to move CCR bitcode
		movea.l	4.w,a6
		cmpi.w	#36,$14(a6)
		bls.b	_r
		jsr	_LVOCacheClearU(a6)
_r		movem.l (sp)+,d0-d1/a0-a1/a6
		rte			    ; return to prog code

@DamienD: The difference is the ORIGINAL.BOOK and WORKING.BOOK are bigger files on the SPS #1510 release and it also has 2 extra files M1024K and M512K that the main executable references, but no idea what they do other than the program adapts to the amount of memory you have?

@ross: Never tested it on a faster CPU, nice catch to fix it for 680x0 CPU's! Will have to try your 'fix' on some progs that don't like the A1200 !

Turns out the M1024K and M512K are the music files (in an executable) for ingame music, selected from the Features > Sound > Music menu! So looks to be samples for 512k and 1mb machines.

The QTX/BS1 release appear to have the samples in the main COLOSSUS executable, not external, so that's why it's bigger!

Also noticed some of the file/folder dates on the SPS version say 08 Dec 87 and on the QTX/BS1 they say 09 Dec 87!
