Hi!

Today I found out that the existing hacks/cracks of Summer Games do differ a little bit from my original disk. I also found out that it is copy protected; so I thought: well... let me first safely backup my original disk. Guess what: it does not work with APE PRO System!

After analyzing the disk myself I found out that:
Sector 20 has a duplicate ('ghost' sector). When I keep re-reading sector 20 myself I get different results.
Sector 21 is a Bad Sector.

So far so good.

But... the PRO system does not recognise the Ghostsector 20. So when I boot the PRO image, it hangs stuck (does not work).

So my question now is: what to do next? It would be nice if the PRO system had a few more features, where I could force the system to investigate sector 20, or even better: to 'tell' the PRO system what is going on. I do not know how to edit a PRO image, so I can not make the adjustments myself now.

Any help is highly appreciated.

For the people wanting to know what is different with the existing available hacks of Summer Games.

1. The opening ceremonies on MY protected disk has a yellow border.

2. The 100 Free Style game has sound and no issues at all with the player graphics (look careful on other versions, you see pixels of the swimmer at the top of the screen and/or in the water); and on xl/xe there is no sound.

Happily there is a small workaround for issue two. The backside of the summergames disk I have is not copy protected. When I use a cracked side A, I can use my original side B.

But still... I would like to know why I can not create a working PRO image of this disk.

Thanks

Can you e-mail me the resulting image?

If the image making tool for VAPI is available you can use that, but it requires a Happy upgraded disk drive. It should produce much more detailed images than ProSystem.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your reply. Saturday or Sunday I will work on this again, and then I will make another image, and I will make sure the issue is still there. Then I will e-mail you the image.

Thanks for all your support!
