Unprotect for Dream Team 3 on 3

Tired of looking up protection codes for that expensive program you bought?
Well we can do something about that nasty protection scheme.

Use the Norton editor (or a similar hex editor) on the hard disk copy of
DREAM.EXE (as always it is inadvisable to modify your original). Search for
and make the following changes:

Original: 75 55 C6 (at 7948 in Version 1.0)
Changes: EB 55 C6

Write the file out and you are done! This eliminates the doc check.

For reference this is a dump of the part of the program we are changing.
