Nothing original, but works as a crack intro. The text writer was nice.

if you're gonna make something that every idiot with 3 fingers and half an eye can code (come on, that twisty..), at least try to steal the design right

500k _with_ UPX?
what the bloody fuck?!
no, sorry, that's not acceptable in any possible way, not even on a "just for fun" level.

there was a time before the cracktros looked better than the game, and nowadays you can't really do that, but then at least you could be up to the standard TEN YEARS AGO technically.

the intro itself isn't BAD, it doesn't bring anything to the table, but at least it's not atrocious, but take a look at the stuff rez does nowadays to know where the bar should be, because honestly this (in this size) is just embarrassing.

i disagree with navis, but these down-the-1980s-memory-lane ones indeed are fucking pointless. it's just boring retro crap cos there's just 35+yo dorks in the crackscene that don't wanna grow up :D

oh and shitrow is instant thumbdown anyway!

what is a cracktro anyway. They cracked 'rage' in what way, is it easier to copy it from the floppy disc or now has infinite lives?
added on the 2011-10-10 18:08:27 by Navis Navis
They cracked it so they don't have to pay money for it.
added on the 2011-10-10 18:12:53 by okkie okkie
@navis: it's written on the nfo ("protection: steam") so I think there's still some hack to be able to play this game without having steam account (but I'm not sure about that).

It's frustrating how this discussion surfaces any time a crappy cracktro gets added to Pouet. It suffices just to say this sucks and then that's the end of it, right? Some are worth watching, some aren't. Same with demos.

+ music
- photoshopped logo
- size (500 k packed ???)
- gay colors
- abrupt module synchronisation
- isn't oldschool and also doesn't try hard

True, 500k is a lot for that kinda prod... But dudes, in these days, noone cares, frankly. We are no more in the 720FDD era.

Pastel color-scheme you call gay (not mentioning it is not a proper word - but surely you know it)? So some 1994-1996 BBS/cracktros are gay too? Melon Design stuff too? OK, certainly, we have all already passed thru MD style and its all-the-time copying, but still it was sth back in the days.
But I suppose you ment "they should use other colors, and not still the same".

And certainly man, no hard feelings, freude! ;)

I thought it meant the man doesn't like happy colours. You know? Everything should be black and grey and shit.

what was that thing about "respecting the roots" again?

True. I agree, but how many dudes can really optimise the code to the acceptable level?

From the other hand, if we disassemble old Amiga cracktros we will most probably see that they were not well coded neither. The, let's call it "Amiga days" and 720 medium reality in most often, forced the coders to do so. I underline word "forced", since we all know a human nature - not always willing to cooperate in almost EVERY aspect of life.

What I also wanted to say was that some the cracktro coders of today, do not care about the "roots". We all know that.
added on the 2011-10-11 13:16:58 by sim sim
720FDD.... Sorry, I wanted to write 800FDD ;). Or simply FDD to avoid the platform issue =).

I had a short coder passage in my life, but I think that "I don't care about the size" attitude is not acceptable if there are ways to do better.
But as I said - my experience's short in this area.
added on the 2011-10-11 13:21:50 by sim sim
I don't understand why someone would need to care about size in these days, but I think that this (and the vast majority of others like it) are just bland and derivative and seen before 20 years ago already. Make it 50 megs for all I care, but make it not make me yawn myself to death. You know, cracktros USED to be cool.

cracktros could be cool again if someone would think of something fresh for them.
coding old amiga effects which arent a challenge anymore and look ugly nowadays is certainly not fresh.
i actually like the idea of having custom installertros for releases, this way the cracktro wouldnt seem as a pointless additional piece of binary nobody really needs.

A very nice crackintro, good work! A cracktro does not need to be inspiring nor does it´s exisitence need to be justified in any way, it´s purpose is still clear and the same as it was 20 years ago. it seems more people are in conflict with "not liking" and "not understanding".

Nice one. It reminded me of old amiga cracktro's. A cracktro is a cracktro, it doesnt need to be cool or anything. It is just a credits screen for the cracker.

Just have to comment on this again...

A cracktro is a cracktro, it doesnt need to be cool or anything. It is just a credits screen for the cracker.

If so, then why have ANY gfx, code or music at all? Just a text "cracked by XXXX" for example in game main menu would "do the job" i guess? There were and still sometimes (too seldom though) there are awesome crack intros out there but if anything goes why bother polishing it at all? Strange way of thinking to me.

Oh and i thumbed this up.
