Just spotted this and had a look at the code for the sync protection crack. Have to say.... very, very clever method! I hadn't thought of being able to re-sync the code with the counter again every time the trace de-crypt is called. And also re-syncing to handle the trace checksum code being modified too! 25 years on and I just learned something about ST hacking. :)

Just goes to prove the theory of hacking, there's always someone smarter who can think of that thing you didn't consider when making the protection. :D

Hello Melcus,

I tested both ECG Fake Compact 4 and 3 and they work great on my ultrasatan.
Although i have a lot of space on my harddisk i still think that's it's better to crunch datas with ATM5 or Spv3 because they decrunch fast.

Waiting (anxiously ?) for the next ECG's FAKE compacts ..... :mrgreen:
