: Would your unpacker work on the demos as well, I
: wonder?

Not without a lot of work. The main problems are:

a) I don't know if I still have a copy of the demo.

b) The disassembler I used (MacNosy) stopped working ages ago.

c) Unpacking the global data would be pretty straightforward (assuming I can find a copy), but without a disassembly I wouldn't know where the various tables were located, nor even for sure their dimensions (# of entries, and bytes per entry).

d) Some of the data was hard-coded directly into the code, and I would absolutely need a disassembly to get it.

Those aren't necessarily insurmountable. I did play the demo, and I'm sort of a packrat, so the odds are good that there is still a copy around here somewhere. There's an old machine in the back room that may run if I supplied power, and it may still run MacNosy. Even without the disassembly, the global data structures should be similar enough that I might be able to find them just by virtue of their having almost the same data.

But it would be a whole lot of work. More than I'm in the mood for right now.
