Gold Rush Cracked and UnCracked version wonders

Postby MusicallyInspired » Sat Mar 03, 2007 1:24 am

Finally got a hold of an uncracked copy of Gold Rush and found something interesting. The cracked version displays a completely different resource picture for the title screen than the uncracked copy does. The cracked copy shows a forest/country-like background with only the words "and Sierra are proud to present" along with some slight apparent graphical stray pixel animation glitches. (it uses AGI picture resource #129)

On the non-cracked version it shows a completely different picture (one that makes more sense) and some twinkling stars in the background (positioned and animated in the same places as the apparent graphical stray pixel glitches of the cracked version's title). This uses AGI picture resource #73.

I wonder if by cracking the game it somehow reverts the title screen image to a pre-release version of the title sequence that they scrapped? I only wonder that because the colours for the Sierra logo work in both pictures well. Just something to marvel at.

Here are pictures:

Maybe whoever cracked it was just messing around and changed it, like when crackers add their own annoying intro screens.

Different version numbers perhaps? The only GoldRush version I have is #2.01.

Nope. Nothing to do with version numbers since when you crack the uncracke d version it still changes the background.
