@Manuel: I believe one of the ways will be copy it with TPSET option. Maybe print have a similar option too?

Manuel: Yes it does. But not as simple as in screen 2...

10 SCREEN 5
20 COLOR 15,0,0
30 SET PAGE 0,1
40 OPEN"grp:" AS #1
50 A$="LOADING SPINAGE KARATE"
60 B$="CRACKED BY MANUEL QUIBUS 1985"
70 PRESET (0,0): PRINT #1,A$
80 PRESET (0,8): PRINT #1,B$
90 SET PAGE 0,0
100 X1=128-LEN(A$)*8/2
110 X2=128+LEN(A$)*8/2
120 X7=128-LEN(B$)*8/2
130 X3=LEN(A$)*8/2
140 X4=LEN(B$)*8/2
150 X5=LEN(A$)*8-1
160 X6=LEN(B$)*8-1
170 LINE (X1-2,60)-(X2,70),4,BF
180 LINE (X1-4,58)-(X2+2,72),4,B
190 COPY (0,0)-(X5,7),1 TO (X1,62),0,TPSET
200 COPY (0,0)-(X5,7),1 TO (X1+1,62),0,TPSET
210 COPY (0,8)-(X6,15),1 TO (X7,110),0,TPSET
220 COPY (0,8)-(X6,15),1 TO (X7+1,110),0,TPSET
230 GOTO 230
240 GOTO 240

And frankly I didn't think of that when dIIsk was in the making Smile

Ah, I remember A lot of our pirated cassette games had that black background + blue bar loading screen!
The one for Konami's Knightmare was a green bar. oO

And then Zanac had this:

btw Meits, this is exactly what I had in mind when I wrote 'only some loading screens with the title and some "cracked by" message.' Smile

I just learned from BiFi how to make this work on screen 5. Set background color to 0 and add TPSET to the PRESET instruction. PRINT#1 works with logical operations in screen 5 Smile

Example:

10 COLOR15,1,1:SCREEN5
20 DEFUSR=&H41:A=USR(0)
30 A$="COMIC BAKERY IS LOADING"
40 B$="ENJOY THIS FUNNY GAME"
50 OPEN"grp:"AS#1
60 X=128:Y!=LEN(A$)*4:Z=X-Y!:R=X+Y!
70 Q=LEN(B$)*4:W=X-Q
80 LINE(Z-5,100)-(R+3,110),4,BF
90 LINE(Z-7,98)-(R+5,112),4,B
100 COLOR,0:PRESET(Z,102),,TPSET:PRINT#1,A$
110 PRESET(Z+1,102),,TPSET:PRINT#1,A$
120 PRESET(W,150):PRINT#1,B$
130 PRESET(W+1,150),,TPSET:PRINT#1,B$
140 DEFUSR=&H44:A=USR(0)
150 GOTO 150

Nice adaption of that load screen, Meits Smile

@hap I remember the Zanac one as well, we did have that version (I guess everyone did)

I have a cracked version of Nemesis 2 with a +3 trainer!
It needs 256k memory to work! But the text is in italian, is there a way to translate this in english?

Yes, in a sector monitor... That's probably how the Italian guy did it...

i used diskit to find passwords and texts in games back in the good old days. I remember that Zanac Into Screen and the famous blue bar loading screens.
