This file will tell you how to unprotect Skate or Die by Electronic
Arts. To perform the unprotection you will need some knowledge
of how DEBUG works.

Step 1: Install Skate or Die on your hard drive.
Step 2: Copy DEBUG.COM to the 'SKATE' subdirectory.
Step 3: Rename SKATE.EXE to S.ZAP
Step 4: Type at DOS prompt DEBUG S.ZAP
Step 5: Type at prompt -r .
Step 6: Record the value of the register CS.
Step 7: Add a HEX 1000 to the value of CS and let it equal Z
(Example: CS = 1F00 / Z = 2F00)

*****************************************************************
*NOTE: THE VALUE OF 'Z' WILL BE REPLACE LETTER Z IN STEPS 8 & 9.*
*****************************************************************

Step 8: Type at prompt -E Z:9575 EB 03 90 90 90 E9 24 01 .
Step 9: Type at prompt -E Z:9784 EB .
Step10: Type at prompt -w .
Step11: Type at prompt -q .
Step12: Rename S.ZAP to SKATE.EXE

( means 'carriage return' or 'enter')


SKATE.EXE should be unprotected. You won't have to search through
the book to enter the protection code agian. Cracked by the

  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/
