Sirius 7 - another game that needs a *proper* crack...

Heya guys,

Another game that needs to be properly cracked...

In TOSEC there are these files:

a) Sirius 7 (1990)(Actual Screenshots)[cr PNS][h LSD][t +3 PNS].adf
b) Sirius 7 (1990)(Actual Screenshots)[cr PNS][t +3 PNS][b doscopy].adf

"a)" shows the following in the cracktro and is also missing many "intro" screens:



b) has all "intro" screens but considering it's a bad disk and given the above; I guess this also suffers from GFX issues on Level 4...

Have tried to fix those nasty doscopy issue.
ADF in the zone, have not fully tested for myself.

As stated in LSD intro, its not a bad crack isssue, probably a problem with the original!

no coding/cracking knowledge here, its just comparing and guessing!
I have no idea, if any changed single byte is now as it should be(99% it is)!
Anyway, the result speaks for itself!

indeed, in this case no comparing, at least no comparing with another Sirius disk, but comparing against other disks with doscopy issue, to know which bytes are affected!
In this case we had luck, it seemed obviously, that most of affected bytes(32 bad bytes) had be zero-ed!
