My next old next door Neighbour is a police seregent and he had a fair few pirate Playstation games copied from his mates in the force. If that's a typical example of the police I don't think the crackers had a problem lol

Fairlight is my number one, no bugs and nice intros. I know people have posted this site before but some people might have missed it: http://www.flashtro.com/
It's a site with cracktros "converted" to Flash so you can watch those old cracks in you browser!

Best cracking groups?

I know it's all pretty subjective, but who would you say were the best groups in terms of quality and consistency of cracks? The main ones I remember from 'back in the day' were Skid Row and Fairlight, were they the most high profile?

No, I cracked it 100% first time, it took a little more effort to get the WHDLoad version to work properly.

cracking groups - amiga

Since we have now arranged a very good collection of crack intros, faar away from beeing complete. But we can see some roots. Bamiga Sector One have had the most releases in the early years. Much more than any other group in the 1988.
Skid Row have had the most releases in the 1990. Fairlight ok, but that was not the minor player on amiga. Quartex, was, but without many crack intros. It was the ascii message group. Ok, have a look, and browse.

bye bye

I seemed to have a lot of Fairlight and Skid Row.

In fact were Skid Row really named after the 80s metal band of the same name?

Fairlight were still going up until two or three years ago. There were huge busts between Europe and the States where their ftp servers were taken down. Members in Germany, Sweden, Belgium and the States were raided.

My favourite group was always LSD with their docs discs etc and the fact I knew Pazza back then as well who hooked me up with access to all of LSD's BBS's and gave me AT&T numbers to access them for free

Well, the ones I personally remember seeing most cracks from back in the day are: Fairlight, Skid Row, Crystal and Quartex.

Depends on what the definition of best is I suppose, fastest, most prolific or best quality (ie. 100% working). Not sure who comes out top on a proper analysis.
