Amiga crackers in the media

I'm looking for mentions of Amiga crackers in magazines. So far I've found one article: "Piracy: The kiss of Death" in Amiga Format, issue 054, 1993 Christmas.

I'm currently going through issues, one by one - but if you remember an article you've seen, let me know.

Amiga Computing Issue 19 (Vol 2 No 7) December 1989 from page 70 onwards.

Amiga Computing Issue 41 October 1991 has a reasonable article, but the pages are not on AMR. I have a feeling I had scanned that article at one point but can't find it right now. If anyone has it, I can attach the scans to that issue.

Commodore User May1988 pages 78-80 and 83 has information on plagiarism in games.

Commodore User June 1988 pages 93-95 includes a map of Europe and the UK with some of the bigger hacking groups shown, along with some information about Christian Weber/SCA.

Thanks. I think the missing pages can be found here:


Will have a look at them.

either you have a very good memory or are just fast in reading old magazines ;-)

There was an extensive article about piracy and crackers in Megacomp issue #3. Unfortunately I don't have it in hardcopy and have been unable to find a softcopy, been looking for about 15 years now.
