    New project: Magic File Renamer

    Hi all!

    Let me introduce a new small program for your reversing pleasure
    The target will be Magic File Renamer 4.0. It's a very usefull util to rename files in hundreds of different ways.
    You can grab it here: ht*p://doodu.tripod.com/MFR400.zip.

    First of all, the program is very small. It can be disassembled by W32Dasm without the need of unpacking it.

    I'll give you a few hints:
    - The registration is done from the 'File'-menu -> Register
    - The validation is done while characters are typed in the boxes.
    - The program is written in Delphi, so you can use DeDe (Delphi Decompiler from the Millenium Group) to discover more about the app (get it here: ftp://ftp.balbaro.com/dede/dede242.zip)

    Let's first try to patch it in a way that it accepts any serial, then try to create a keygen for it.

    Good luck and please use the appropiate topics for replies.

    Once the project is finished I will create an essay about it.

    Cheers,

    RalDnoR.

    hi,
    sorry I disagree, its a 1 minute crack and
    a two minute keygen. Why another keymaker?.

    hi,
    Just want to apologise for my earlier post,
    it is easy, but that was a negative response to you hard work.

    Hi Hz!

    Doesn't matter dude! Just regard this program as a target for the uninitiated
    Anyway, I think this target might be hard for complete newbies. There will be other targets more complex but this is a nice example of one of many shareware apps with easy protections.

    Cheers,

    RalDnoR.

    Great choice for a project, I think it's a good idea to show newbies some programs written in other languages since they will see them sooner or later. Also I'm glad you decided to let people try to keygen this. I think by making newbies write keygens on their first cracks is important this way they don't just blind patch everything in sight until something works, they will actually understand how the protection works which will make them much better crackers.

    Keygens are for the elite, we are helping start the next generation of elite crackers.

    I think that it was a great idea. I am, for example, an absolute newbie and I think that the problems like this one are the best way how to learn....

    thanx RalDnoR
