Wanted: Maniacball

Hi guys and gals

I'm looking for Maniacball, the full version.. I've contacted Peter Elzner, and He said it is now freeware, But he doesn't have it anymore. Thus my request.

as far as I remember, the Amiga version of ManiacBall is freeware, I
just can not remember where I put the free registration key.

I'm sorry but I think I don't have it anymore...

Hi

I uploaded into zone Maniacball v1.5 ( I think that is 1.5 version after short look into guide inside disk ). I found this game in TOSEC/Games/Public Domain/[ADF] folder.

Regards

Hi

There is keyfile but someone put into demo levels folder and named it 01.h. I just renamed 01.h --> mb.keyfile and put into main directory and works fine. So I uploaded this keyfile into zone ( just extract zip archive and put keyfile to Maniacball directory. If you have problem I can create proper adf this evening, just give me a sign. First I thought that I will crack this game and I even checked main executable ( just search "key" string in exe ) and found that game need mb.keyfile. Then I just look into demo levels folder ( I want to check how many levels exist ) and I found strange file 01.h. . Cheers

Regards

Hi,

I tried to ask author of Maniacball ( via form on his page ) about game sources. But there is no reply from Peter Elzner .

@kkgarbod - Could you ask author of Maniacball about source code of this game ( I mean about amiga version only ).

Regards

Hi.

Been reading the http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=52849&page=2
and see in the Game list that trackah123 Posted that Maniacball is distributed with AF 2010.

My question is, is it the same version we have (demo disk with "hacked" keyfile.). or does it have a proper keyfile, which will allow you to play other levels (http://aminet.net/search?query=maniacball)?

I checked and it seems that we have demo disk with "hacked" keyfile, mean game has more checks. Furthermore is not possible to cheat in easy way ( replace levels in place of demo levels ). In other words we still don't have full version .

Edit: I just obtained answer from Peter Elzner and he said that source code is currently not available.

Edit2: More information: That "hacked" keyfile is dummy. I was totaly wrong when I said that someone copy keyfile into demo levels. There is another easy cheat to play for example with "classic" levels, and hex editor is needed. 10th byte should be equal to 12th byte ( I guess its level number ) in each level file. I checked only on 01 file and it works.

Regards

I've got the same answer from him, Oh well we tried.

Thanx Asman for the info. Tested it with both level sets. Magic up to level 3, Quite tough. Classic level I've tested up to level 8, Much easier

I've done both level sets. They are in the zone.
