Thread: DirectX crackme

  1. #16
    Hmm, I have a question.
    When I try to quit the application using ALT+F4 it crashes (not using Escape). You specified this on crackmes.de

    09. Dec, 15:48 One month on, nobody beaten it yet! A reply to people who have asked, if the crackme crashes while you're working on it this is not a bug, it's deliberate.
    Is it related ? Because I had no tools loaded.
    Still no discussion about it nor solutions..hard time.

    Silkut, when you start the crackme does it load perfectly, switch to full-screen mode, then show a couple of lines of text with a text entry box, a Submit button and a rotating texturemapped cube in the background?

    If it shows all these things then the crackme is working on your computer, however it does seem like you've found a legitimate bug if it crashes on Alt-F4.

    If you quit using Escape, does it exit properly with no crash? If so then yes, this is a bug, I probably forgot to release an interface when handling the window closing. Apologies for this, please ignore the crash and only use Escape to quit. This is not part of the protection.

    The comment on crackmes.de was referring to cracking actions - in other words if you start reversing the app and it starts crashing, this is deliberate and part of the protection.

    I think Mr Squeers may be about to provide us with a solution

    Yeah all of those things are working, as I said in my report inPM (if you remember i choose to be a victim, with zairon).

    _Fullscreen+bouncing.box+entryform+button = Ok
    _Quit = Ok
    _alt+f4 = crash

    Maybe it is possible to provide more information, but I can't use the JIT debugger (because I'm using a student version of VisualStudio blah..) too bad =/

    No problem about the bug =) *Damn it's not a part of the protection*

    ? Set Olly as JIT debugger. You can find the option somewhere in menu (much better than IDE, for me...)
    I want to know God's thoughts ...the rest are details.

    Maximus> Thanks for the hint, a moment I forgot that the JIT debugger could be another one that Microsoft's r3 one

    Here is the instruction where I'm stuck using Olly as JIT debugger.
    Code:
    00402805  |> /F60401 80     /TEST BYTE PTR DS:[ECX+EAX],80
    
    DS:[00000000]=???
    Jump from 0040280F
    
    Access violation when reading [00000000]..

    Oh, yep, that's COM interface reference count fun. I'm going to re-release the crackme with a fix for the backbuffer format (see blabberer's posts), so I'll fix that too.

    Ok, here's the pure DX version. Absolutely no extra protection, it's 100% vanilla code. Your task is to PATCH the crackme so it always tells you you've beaten it. The only encryption is for the crackme password, to stop people fishing it.

    If a few people could check it works, I think I fixed the caps crash problem and the alt-f4 issue. If it's ok I'll upload it to crackmes.

    Cheers guys!

    Hi everyone,

    I realise I'm bringing back to life a thread that has been dormant for the last 4 to 5 years, but I'm hoping that someone here can help me.

    I wrote the tutorial/solution to Silver's crackme back in 2007 and published it as a PDF on the crackmes.de website (I blogged about it here). Since then, thanks to various backup failures and issues with webhosts, I have lost my copy of the document.

    I tried to get another copy from crackmes.de, but as we all know that site has been taken down. I found a few locations that claimed to have backups/mirrors of the solutions, but none of those online archives are complete and I wasn't able to get my solution from them.

    I have tried to scrounge copies from archive.org and from google's cache but to no avail. The last hope that I have is this forum!

    Do any of you still happen to have a copy of my solution lying around on their harddrives? I'm not worried about anything else, just the PDf that I wrote as I'd really like to retain a copy and stick it back up on my webserver for other people to digest.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all for listening.

    TheColonial.
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.
