I have a game called Stronghold made by SSI.  I lost my passwords for the game and it is basically useless without them.  Could someone send a copy of the codes to redlead@geocities.com?

Hmmm, here is crack:
iii) Crack
edit STRONG.EXE
search 80 7E FF 00 75 03 E9 8E 04
change -- -- -- -- 90 90 -- -- --

You need to use Hex-editor for this purpose.

Strange, game is pretty old. And this crack is all what I found.
I don't have this game. Maybe STRONG.EXE has more than one of this
sequence ?

Contact the vendor of the game.
If you include "proof-of-purchase",
they can help you.

On the Stronghold CD-Rom there is a program called "menu".  Open this and press "c" for the code word sheat OR press "m" for the manual the codes are from (this can be printed out).

I found a list of both the codes from the game used to get in, and some obscure debug mode 'cheats' at:
