Hi there

Hello to everyone,
my name is Samir and I used to be part of Prestige and Zenith from the late 80's until 1995. I have been out of the scene for the last 18.5 years and it's quite amazing to see that there's still so much going on

Looking forward to getting in touch with some old mates.

Cheers

Waow, so you never stopped, right? Quite impressive

Do you know what happened some of the old ones (e.g. Mok, Skol, Groo) ?

Mok did some work for a games company briefly, and then quit, Skol quit after Fairlight and Groo haven't heard for a long time

Hoping that slowly some of the guys from back then will find their way here in due course.

Quite a few sceners have ended up here, a lot of them are on Facebook.

I know that Mok spent some time converting some games into Polish versions and he was having lots of fun putting in some nasty protections.

A pity that most of these guys have somehow disappeared. But then if I managed to get out of my 18.5 years long hibernation, maybe same will happen to some of them as well

And I assume you are one of the very last old crackers around, right?

Conqueror showed up briefly, Subzero is around, but mostly old demo sceners have shown up, musicians and coders.

I've been lucky in a way, discovering WHDLoad, without that I would probably have stayed away. I essentially quit after Championship Manger 2 in 1998 I think it was, resurfaced in 2001 and have been around ever since.

Some nice releases recently as well which is nice nearly 20 years later!!

But most old sceners are on facebook.
