Arrow Real name of Antiaction/Defjam?

Well, you might think this has already been answered, but apparently wrongly.

As HOL is also interested in handles of sceners who went on writing commercial games (e. g. Pinball Dreams / TSL), these infos MUST be correct.

After some research, I'd say it's Stefan Boberg indeed, although Galahad was saying this is wrong and "correcting" (?) it to 'Andreas Tadic' in an ancient thread and also in the 2002 "Weekly King of the Scene Competition I" on EAB. Well, Galahad was IN-DEPTH of the scene, so you really need a lot of disproving material to say he's wrong...

BTW, I remembered this thing because someone mentioned Superfrog, which was programmed by Tadic.

I WANT to get this mystery solved and prove Galahad wrong that Antiaction is NOT Tadic. It's almost improbable he is because I found so many disproving infos.

Antiaction went through a variety of groups, one was TETRAGON:
Quote:
Tetragon
--------
Tetragon was a swedish group. The four best members (JBM, Trigon, Joker and
Hater) joined Dual Crew around 07/90. Swedish coder Antiaction (responsible
for the famous Tetra-Packer) then joined D-Mob.
(source: Scenery Amiga)

I'm 99.99% sure that Tetra-Packer was programmed by Boberg ( = Antiaction!), who also did LHA.
Tadic was in Phenomena and Triangle, according to my researches.
Scenery Amiga found neither Tadic nor a certain "Megaman", so he might have gone under the handle "Dream Warrior" (but unsure).

More?

This link holds a couple of interviews with sceners, which have Antiaction and Tadic in SEPARATE lines, so this gives the impression that they are NOT the same person! Moreover, what they say is completely diverse.

This should be enough to disprove the assertion that Antiaction = Tadic.

The killer evidence for me (even 10 years or more ago) was that Antiaction did Tetrapacker and DefjamPacker and other packers and then went on to do LHA under his actual name... Stefan Boberg.

Not really important but "Stefan Boberg" didnt create LHA, it was written by Dr. Haruyasu Yoshizaki in 1988. Stefan Boberg brought it to the Amiga

Heh, this is Nicolas G. Clarke's site. [NGC/Rebels]
(from ParCon/DMS fame)
Weirdly though, he is/was also involved in the Amiga scene
Boberg is Swedish, but this is all Danish stuff ("Københavnsområdet" etc.)

What a coincidence -- that's what I get for not getting enough sleep. He doesn't exactly say who Michael Pendec is either tho.

Parcon = Paradox Consoles
Michael Pendec was responsible for DMS updating AKA Blackhawk/Paradox

Michael Pendec also wrote a great copyprog, which I have.

But Galahad ... what now?
Are you no longer wanting to make people believe that Tadic was known under Antiaction?

I hope so ('bout time dammit, after 4 years ) ... then in HOL, I'm going to assign Boberg the correct handle he deserves

just found on the bootblock of Alien Breed - Tower Assault (PDX crack):
Code:
Tower Assault Amiga OCS/ECS/AGA
Code by Stefan Boberg, Graphics by Tony Senghore-Turunen
Original game concept by Rico Holmes, Martyn Brown and A.Tadic
Copyright (c) 1994 by Team 17 Software Ltd.
If you are playing a pirate copy of this you are helping the
Amiga to die. Please consider BUYING this game. A lot of
time and effort was put into the development of this.
Crackers' note: regards to ANTI-ACTION OF DEFJAM!
Code by Stefan Boberg, and the PDX cracker sends regards to Antiaction!
...but as i read on, also A.Tadic is mentioned.
