Ahh the old EA games copy protection... a single change of BNE to BEQ, and the game was cracked!

Now as far as copy protection and fast loaders go... the most epic fast load of all was GUNSHIP.

that rewrote the DOS and used epic timing tricks to get around 21 times fast load from a standard loader.

Our crack of gunship ended up with a built in 5x fastloader, but resulted in a game that could be copied with single file copy!!

what an epic game that was too!

You do.. right??

Dad sues Apple for pushing cash-draining 'free' games at kids


Re: When will parents learn

so it cost $200 to have the iOS device babysit his child, how long was the child babysat for, and what would the going rates for a babysitter be for the same period of time. I'm guessing he didn't find out til his next billing cycle, maybe a week or a month after allowing his child access to his credit card, but let's say 10 days, $20 a day seems pretty cheap for babysitting...
