Street Fighter 2 Atari ST cracktro by TRSI

...and back to the Atari ST we go, for another cracktro remake! 

This time TRSI step up with their cracktro for Street Fighter 2. I saw this on a Cracktro fan page on Facebook, and thought it looked pretty cool - and a good volunteer for a CODEF remake - so here it is!

Army Men cracktro from the PSX by Kalisto

After seeing a YouTube video of a PSX cracktro by Kalisto, I thought this family of cracktros seemed pretty cool, so I decided to remake one with CODEF. 

I found the download files for the Army Men cracktro, and was able to run it in my Playstation emulator, and proceeded to rip all of the required GFX and text, and then was able to find the .MOD (featuring a version of Insomnia by Faithless) - finally stitching it all together!

Nothing too fancy, just a nice little screen - press SPACE to replicate the X button on the PSX controller when in the "main screen". 

I hope you like it!

FIFA by Paradox for MS-DOS

 ...and another one hits your browser window!

This time it's the old school favourite, FIFA cracktro by Paradox for the MS-DOS which I present to you! 
A classic old chiptune, running on the ADLIBIDO .js engine by Juergen Wothke makes a rare appearance, along with a cool little text effect! Enjoy!

Clockwiser by Fairlight

Time for a return to one of the usual sources for my remake ideas, the Amiga! This time it's an old school cracktro by Fairlight, for the game Clockwiser!

A great tune by Jochen Hippel and a really nice logo.

Enjoy this classic remake from the Amiga days!

Digital Insanity KEYGEN remake

After the last remake of a Windows Keygen, I thought I'd have a go at another one! 

Here is my latest remake - the Windows Keygen for SONY Sound Forge 9.0 by Digital Insanity. 

It's all pretty much there, with the exception of the actual crack of course! ;-) 

The only thing not 100% right is the plasma, which although close, isn't as good a match to the original as I'd like - but I'll keep tweaking as and when I get time to see if I can get it better!

Orion windows KEYGEN for NERO Burning ROM remake

I saw a link to a Youtube video which showed a really nice little KEYGEN by Orion for the NERO Burning ROM. I'm not sure how old it is, but it used some REALLY nice music, and I thought it would be a nice little 10 minute remake - so I remade it! 

A little bit of creative license and using the CODEF mouse tracker, and the webXMP player by Juergen Wothke, some canvas interraction - and it even runs on iOS!

Gauntlet Legends Trainer by MUPS - PSX

I thought as it'd been a few weeks since my last CODEF remake, I thought I'd have a look through some intros/trainers etc. on Youtube, and I found this cool PSX Trainer / PAL-NTSC selector  by MUPS! It was for the game Gauntlet Legends.

What got my attention to begin with was the cool remix of the Enigma Phenomena main theme (Hyberbased by Firefox/TIP) - done by 16 Beat from Razor 1911, and once I started to listen to the music, I thought "you know what, I've found my next remake"... so here it is!

Mange Cailloux +2 cracktro by TRSI from the Amstrad CPC

I thought it was about time for a new remake, this time from a less common source (well, for me anyway!) - so I found this cool little intro from 2015 by TRSI on the Amstrad CPC! 

Nice .YM ripped tune, nice rasters, and cool font - with inbuilt CRT effect!

I hope you like the Mange Cailloux +2 cracktro by TRSI - remember those CPC days! :-)

Amazing Tunes II by SAE

Something new to announce! I have spend a good amount of time recently at weekends and evenings working away on another new CODEF screen! I'd like to present my (almost!) CODEF version (I won't call it a "remake" - because it isn't perfect - but it's close!) of the awesomeness that is Amazing Tunes II by Amiga legends, Share & Enjoy!
I've spend a LOT of time on this, and I hope you all enjoy the end result!

Jungle Strike by Traders Dream

I had time for one more remake tonight, so it was time to go back to the Amiga! :-) 
A cool 3D dot sphere, a great tune and a nice text effect was used on this intro by Traders Dream for a series of cracktros, the one I chose was for Jungle Strike!

I hope you like my remake of this cool screen...
