To unprotect THE GAMES: WINTER EDITION, follow these steps below:

1. Rename GAMES.EXE to GAMES.XXX.
2. Enter DEBUG with GAMES.XXX ready for modifications.
3. Type "S 0000 FFFF 0B C0 74 01" to search for the protection pattern.
4. The computer should respond with only one address. If none or more
than one is given, this unprotection scheme may not work. Sorry!
5. Take the address given (in the form of XXXX:YYYY) and subract 5 from
the YYYY address. The numbers are in hexidecimal. Do not attempt
this patch if you do not understand hex.
6. Use the subracted number (ZZZZ) and enter it in DEBUG as follows:
"E ZZZZ EB 03 90 90 90 31 C0" to NOP the protection scheme.
7. Save the modified file by entering "W", then entering "Q" to exit to
DOS.
8. Rename the file GAMES.XXX back to GAMES.EXE.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
