I'm looking for both of these too.

@flunky are you able to make an adf of Grossmeister and upload it to the Zone? I'm sure one of the eab members would easily be able to disable the protection check.

The ADF is in the zone now.
Removing the protection would be nice.

This is a nasty one! The main game is overlayed so you don't have easy access to all the code unless it's running, and it looks like it's compiled with some kind of BASIC interpreter/shell running on top of it.

I had a quick look but this kind of protection is a real pain in the butt, maybe Galahad or Girv would like to accept the challenge?

It might be easier to extract the words from the RAM. I've uploaded some screens:

Chessmate V1.2 is in the Zone. You'll need a WB 1.1/1.2 Extras disk with AmigaBASIC on it in order to launch the game. Enjoy!

Is this Chessmate disk damaged?

The reason I ask is every time I make an illegal move the game crashes, I don't think it's to do with the winuae settings.
