Yep, I recalled how X-COPY could make an "error correction". Any disk copied from that "corrected" disk hasn't been showed any error. Thanks.
EDIT: I checked the first in row version and, amazing, it looks like the same cracked. But this time it works good, no hangs or anything.

This problem is known from EXILE indeed. Ask Galahad in case of doubt

Maybe Your German version wasn't from Delphine Collection.
Of course not
The Collection did not exist when the game came out, just the standalone original

Changing topic a little. Is there known problem with Harley Davidson bike racing game? When I was a little brat years ago I have got that (cracked version) in my collection and after a few routes the game has made Guru Meditation Error on real A500.
Now I tried it on WinUAE and the same behaviour appears. Always after few routes the game knock to hells door. I tried to pass the problem using savestates but it no helps.
So it is due to crack or game is buggy?

Well Don, did your talented cracker fellows in Poland provide a good crack of this too?
I doubt it, since it was a game little known outside Germany - and hard to find too...

No, I'm not good enough to crack this game correctly, data are crypted and perhaps it has any copylock idea from ST. I only make depacker for rip music songs (one version has data decrypted).

BTW. If I remember right Ork, also is not fully cracked, it has second (ingame) protection, but maybe exist any fully cracked version, I don't check it exactly.

Nice to know, thanks! Since we have lots of German guys in the WHDload team, this might also be interesting for them!
Let's leave the copylock stuff to the WHD guys then ... they can use Mr. Larmer's excellent copylock decoder. (Perhaps even the product to make his name eternal in the scene, even though he had to go so prematurely .)

If there's no original, not much can be done.

What is the side effect of this second protection check and how far into the game do you have to get to make it happen?

I don't remember exactly, I have this info from my old friend (shoot-em'up maniac). He told me about this problem in ~1994 year, second manual check occured after some finished levels, game was stopped on protection. You can ask if someone finished Ork game (original or cracked).

AFAIR there was a manual check (where you had to enter a 4digit code IIRC) in one of the later levels which wasn't removed. There were fixed versions though.

Point taken.

A good eye on both 'bays might come in handy

I never saw it, but it was a proper piss poor game.

Found on some torrent (there is much nowadays) some preinstalled version for whdload. Disk image has 901120 size so it looks like some simple adf renaming but game works good. I think that rest versions can be leave in peace.

Game: It Came From The Desert
Cracker: n/a
Trainer: n/a
Files & CRC/MD5:
It Came from the Desert (1989)(Cinemaware)(Disk 1 of 3)[a].adf {CRC32 86DDDC8A}

It Came from the Desert (1989)(Cinemaware)(Disk 3 of 3).adf {CRC32 57990F5B}
Notes:
Various versions of "disk 3" are faulty. The above are the verified working set that Gamebase Amiga uses. See these threads for more details:
... It came from the Desert Disk 3
... Fully working ADFs of "It Came from the Desert"?

Do you mean, you have played the whole game and reached the end without any problems/errors, so this set get the [!] flag?

Yep. Used two different paths for the OCS (A500) and AGA (A1200) tests, so it should be pretty safe
Btw : Does that mean there will be a [!] flag in the next dat?
