Pools of Darkness

I've lost my adventure journal, is there a way to disconnect the password to the game, or is that even legal?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No it's not illegal. As long as you have actually paid for the game, removing the copy protection for your own use is legal.
Here's what you need to do:
1) Save the file named GAME.OVR in a temporary directory
2) Start a hex editor
3) Load the fie called GAME.OVR
4) Modify the following:

Offset 37E0
80 --> C6
Offset 37E1
3E --> 06
Offset 37E5
74 --> EB
Offset 380F
75 --> 90
Offset 3810
06 --> 90

That'll do it. If for some reason you cannot do this, give me your E-mail address and I will send you the GAME.OVR

Good luck
