Right that's that over with.





Firstly....
For those who might possibly be interested, rather than those who just want
to hack the program to bits....

Sega wouldn't let us have ANY credits on the game, so I thought we might
as well put some here.

I (Richard Aplin) wrote the Amiga and ST versions (though at the time of writing
- 12th Nov.1990 - I haven't started the ST conversion yet!)
I much prefer the Amiga (doesn't anyone?) so I have done that version
first, using all the extra hardware, then i'm going to bang out the
ST version when necessary.


"Uncle Art" (actually a limited company!) did the (not very good) music.
- Oh yeah.. Apologies and sympathy to Uncle Tom (the person!) for the
fuck up with his amazing Double Dragon II music!


The bitmap graphics were grabbed from the arcade PCB video output by Andy Heike
and Nick Vincent with the colour frame grabber, and the sprites were read,
decoded and converted from the arcade machine's Eproms by me. (Not a bit
of bloody help from Sega either!) They were remapped from 21 million to 16
colours by Andy Heike, Nick Vincent, and some students in Manchester.

I sampled the sound effects from the PCB's sound chip (not very hard at all!)

Tiertex wrote the protection check code (which is utter shit - well on form
for Tiertex!)

Steve Fitton and Tony Porter from U.S. Gold provided all the nagging and
hassle which was most unwelcome, but kind of expected anyway.




During the writing of this, I used:

Work
====
3 Commodore A500s
21Mb A590 Hard Disk + 2.5Mb ram
Commodore A1000 + 2Mb ram
Tandon 20Mhz 80386 PC + 40Mb Hard Disk
Souped-up JCL Colourpic video frame-grabber
PerfectSound sampler
Some custom EPROM-reading hardware I built to read the arcade board's roms.
Atari 1040ST (yuk)
+Various extra drives, disks, etc,etc
Lots of coffee

Fun (Notice how the two are divided?!?)
===
Nintendo GameBoy (+Tetris & others)
Sega MegaDrive (+Ghouls'n'ghosts, etc)
Mr.Do! arcade board
Hundreds of records, tapes & CDs and a {} stereo
Sony Video Walkman (+Blackadder 1-4, Comic Strip, Young Ones, and others)
Roland D110 multi-timbral LA synth (rackmount)
Cheetah MS6 multi-timbral analogue synth (rackmount)
Yamaha TX7 FM synth (stupidly-shaped black box)
Casio FZ1 16-bit sampler + loads of disks
Alesis Quadraverb 16-bit digital fx processor (rackmount)
Fender Strat guitar (well, a cheap clone)
A couple of guitar fx pedals
DeskTech 6:2 mixer
MicroIllusions Music-X sequencer (Amazing program)
Virtually no musical talent/ability whatsoever
US Robotics Courier HST modem (for P.D. BBSs of course)
Many gallons of beer, Black Bush whisky, Potheen (when available - cheers Mark!)
Various people's floors/sofas/etc in London when at computer shows
(most time spent at the bar)"

Inside the game's files is a vulgar message to pirates:
STOP IT =NOW=, OK! You will gain *NOTHING* from breaking this protection,
but I guess you're too fucking ignorant, narrow-minded or maybe even too
stupid to understand that. Yeah, so you and your 'leaders' and 'spreaders'
(that's what they like to call themselves, but they're nothing but LEECHES
gaining some kind of fame from the work you do) will have something to
spread around on BBS', ok... But what the hell do they, or you, REALLY get
for all that, huh? Ok credits... So they can download some shit games or
other software, but in a wider perspective? I'll tell you =NOTHING=. It's
pointless. If you don't realize that now, I assure you that in a few years
you will look back at this time and wonder why you did it. I know that
from experience. Go and do something constructive, like studying,
socializing, programming or whatever! Cracking is not constructive. To
you it might seem like a challenge or something you do to get famous, well
OK it is a challenge to crack, and you do get famous if you're good at it.
Famous for a while, a short while. But nobody will care about that five
years from now. You will benefit much more from getting a job, education
or a girlfriend, I'm telling you because I KNOW. I was a cracker once, one
of the best. In a time when you could actually send the originals by mail,
work for a day or two, and then send the cracked version back, and still
have a world-first release. Then the scene consisted by computer freaks
who made it for the fun of it. The scene today is perverted and lead by
ignorant computer-illiterate idiots, only in for the fame and money. They
think they're famous and legendary, but nobody likes or admires them for
sure. I HATE IT! Now I've realized the stupidity of my actions, and I
wish I could undo them. You'll also do just that in a few years too if you
have a conscience, and wish you had done something else. SO DON'T CRACK
IT!"

Another one is written by Stefan Boberg, the game's creator, who may have also written the message above:

================ DIVINE PROTECTION BY =THE MIGHTY GOD=
WRITE TO ME: boberg@lysator.liu.se
FINALLY YOU HAVETHE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO A REAL COMPUTER ===== GOD! =====
CURRENTLY STUDYING APPLIED PHYSICS AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AT LINKOPING INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY!! =====SWEDEN=====
Don't even think about it. Cracking is both illegal and immoral and will get you NOWHERE in this world.
We have spent a lot of time doing this game, and we will not hesitate to take legal actions against
those who duplicate this game illegally.
We have complete overview over the cracking scene, and know your name and whereabouts, no doubt.
We have prepared a nice surprise for you.
You may think it is challenging, exciting or even glorious to crack, but from our point of view it is nothing but theft and sabotage.
You may have read or heard all this before, but this time it's different and REAL. We mean it.
Think about it.
If you continue doing what you're doing right now, the game programmers will have to leave the Amiga
programming in favour for Nintendo, Sega etc.
It is up to you and the rest of the Amiga users.
If you still insist on being an ignorant egocentric lowlife and go ahead cracking this, go ahead, try me.
It won't be easy.
It will be hard, damn close to impossible, destructive, and it will be SO DAMN POINTLESS.
Go and do something else instead, something positive and constructive, do that homework of yours,
read a book, learn something, call some friend, date a girl, or whatever.
Or if you can't get away from the computer, do something yourself, something useful or fun.
This protection is the toughest ever. Unbreachable.
That's what all I have to say, now it's up to you to decide whether you should crack this or not.
We hope you won't.
It'll be so much easier and less painful for all of us, especially for you.
Signed, the creator of this and plenty to come protections, Stefan Boberg"

While Galactus is playable via Galactus Mode, there is evidence that suggests Galactus was going to be playable in Arcade Mode. Within the game’s files are win quotes and voice clips for calling in assists and tagging in other characters, including himself.
