Hmm.. does this actually predate the Berlin Bear intro?

ha, i never ran this one, but thumbs up for a real historical investigation from hitchhiker. it is really very interesting to know our roots. thank you for this upload. would be cool to get some interviews of those crackers in a modern scene zines.

I grew up on a 48K Apple II...

And "The Pirate" cracked about half the games I had for it!

But those didn't actually have Cracktros...just a line inserted saying "Broken by The Pirate"

My Loderunner game, more specifially.
Arrrrrr!

Respect for the pioneers. And hey, this does do its job as a crack intro :)

I found some stuff as early as 1979 from someone called "the whip" but they're just messages embedded inside the cracked programs.

That's earliest instance of a message/intro put in front of a game i could find (they were called "screens" back then).

You know you're dealing with old stuff when someone can safely call himself "The Pirate" without being lame because he's simply the first to do so :-)

hitchhikr: big respect for your archaeological work! however, i suspect there may be older stuff to find somewhere (the oldest atari8 stuff i can dig up is from 1979 also, but apple is an older platform afaik). so please keep on digging! :)

this guy invented perhaps the term "pirating a game"

Oh globbits. This is probably the oldest "cracktro" on the site.
...though I think there's probably more earlier than that.

"oh globbits" Oh stop, me from 4 years ago. You're not from Smethwick, Birmingham.

Interesting piece of history, anyhow.
