Will there be an option (again) to back the book via direct PayPal payment to your email address?

It’s rocking. It’s burning. It’s cracking. Come by!
The earlier we get it, the more effective I work on it.

Just a crazy thought I had to throw out, not sure if this angle is something Marco thought about....

What about maybe discussing all the times the crackers fixed games, incompatible TOS, bugs, made them work on STe, Falcon, etc.

Not crazy at all. Of course I want to implement it, like my Indiegogo presentation already shows. :wink:

Hey guys,

The book is divided into two episodes. While the first part focuses on Europe, it also deals with the relationship of the games industry in the US. The second part deals with the US's underground connection to Europe and the illegal overseas trade in general. Of course, both books belong together and a continuous story is told.

Delivery starts in early April. Between 10–15...

Visit my shop at www.microzeit.com to see if the product is available...

Hi Marco,

I'm really happy to see that this project has come to fruition!
Books have arrived but I can't pick them up because I had them sent to my employer, and the office is still locked down.

Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Best

The second volume, "CRACKERS II: The Data Storm", will reveal the story of some outstanding crackers and hackers on C64, SNES, Megadrive (Genesis), Amiga and especially on the Atari ST!

Back the campaign to make this second book a reality!

Only 11% to go until it's funded!
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk
