Sierra's LEISURE SUIT LARRY II - 'BUSTED' 11/11/1988 by PIRATES-R-US
LEISURE SUIT LARRY II is another in the line of excellent graphics-adventure
games from the Sierra camp, and features their usual stunning graphics and the
new MIDI sound-support! Except for the 'Enter_A_Phone_Numer_To_Play' startup-
scenero, which, once again, is a real pain in the ass, the rest of the game
merits another full 5 stars!!!
So, what we need to 'perfect' the game is a simple patch to remove the need
to match-up the 'Enter_A_Phone_Number_To_Play' screen with the pictures from
the original manual. In the interest of 'crack-speed', we decided to leave the
question in, but restrain it to a constant single question/response. The batch
file supplied does just that... One simple word of caution is, as always, to
be sure to run it on a backup copy just in case Sierra releases differing
versions of the software... (For your information, the only file that is
affected is "SIERRA.EXE". Further, if you examine the batch file itself you
will find two patches to the same memory locations; the 1st patch-line should
be the same as the bytes that we are replacing...)
To proceed, insure you have the file "SIERRA.EXE" in the current directory
and a path to "DEBUG.COM", then run the batch file:
That's all there is to it... The manual is never needed again! Now, the
'Phone_Number' requested will ALWAYS be:
Have fun and good QUESTing...
Another fine 'bust' for your enjoyment from your friends at:

Doing our part to make copy protection a useless waste of time and money...
