Hi Galahad

you'll find quite a lot of old cracks are absolute.

Usually (Law might be able to chip in with more specifics) crackers ran the PRG through a monitor then saved it out as a binary file once they'd skipped protections etc. PRG's are relocated automatically when they are loaded into a monitor.

It all depends how Rob saved the file, if he left the relocation table in, it is possible to de-relocate the program.

Anyway I'll have a look at his version when I get in from work.

Did Amiga use a similar way to relocate exe's?
