HOW TO UNPROTECT "KINDERCOMP" AND "KIDS ON KEYS"
GAMES FROM SPINNAKER SOFTWARE
(by Herb Sorock, 07/01/85)

These "unprotects" will permit the backing-up of the "Kindercomp"
and "Kids on Keys" games as well as permitting hard disk owners to run
the games without the original disks in drive A. Some familiarity with
the DEBUG program on the PC-DOS disk is assumed.

KINDERCOMP
----------
Note: The procedures below apply to version 1.0 of this game.

1. Take out the KINDERCOMP disk and make a copy of it on another disk
using "COPY A:*.* B:" . Do not make the copy using DISKCOPY since the
disk is protected. Put the original away in your "archives".

2. Put your DOS diskette in drive A and the KINDERCOMP copy in drive B.

3. Follow the "script" below. Lowercase is your input, uppercase is
DEBUG's response. XXXX means the numbers in these spaces will vary

depending on your machine's configuration. Note: if DEBUG shows
something other than what is indicated below, you have a different
version and this unprotect will not work.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
A>ren b:kdc_ib.exe *.xxx

A>debug b:kdc_ib.xxx
-u 3b54,3b54
XXXX:3B54 CD13 INT 13
-e 3b54
XXXX:3B54 CD.eb 13.4a (note: hit space bar after "eb")
-w
Writing 3B00 bytes
-q

A>ren b:kdc_ib.xxx *.exe
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. KINDERCOMP is now unprotected.


KIDS ON KEYS
------------

1. Take out the KIDS ON KEYS disk and make a copy of it on another disk
using "COPY A:*.* B:" . Do not make the copy using DISKCOPY since the
disk is protected. Put the original away in your "archives".

2. Put your DOS diskette in drive A and the KIDS ON KEYS copy in drive B.

3. Follow the "script" below. Lowercase is your input, uppercase is
DEBUG's response. XXXX means the numbers in these spaces will vary
depending on your machine's configuration. Note: if DEBUG shows
something other than what is indicated below, you have a different
version and this unprotect will not work.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
A>ren b:kok_ib_d.exe *.xxx

A>debug b:kok_ib_d.xxx

XXXX:0C81 pop ds
XXXX:0C82 pop ax
XXXX:0C83 ret
XXXX:0C84 <-- just hit c/r here
-w
Writing 8500 bytes
-q

A>ren b:kok_ib_d.xxx *.exe
------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. KIDS ON KEYS is now unprotected. Also, the program no longer refuses
to acknowledge ctrl-alt-del so you don't have to turn off the power to
run another program.

  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/
