>Generally it means that the xyplex is just overloaded. Since you chose to use a bogus address, I guess I'll just have to make a fool of myself on the net. What exactly is an "xyplex"? Will a comp.*.modems FAQ have the answer to this question? ObVideoGameCheatHack: I once modified Miner-2049er, an old video game, to give me unlimited lives. Basiclly my computer had a 2k miniature disembler/monitor in it, which I could call by hitting a special button. So I hit the button when my man was dying in the video game, looked in the code around this routine (the monitor remembered what address you were at when you hit the button that called the monitor), and found something that looked like it was decrementing a value. I NOPped (commented out) this instruction, went back to the game, and found that I had unlimited lives, since it wouldn't decrement the number of lives I had when I died. Still couldn't get past the 6th level, though. This was in the days before level passwords, so a hack like this was more significant at the time then it would be today. -- Sam Trenholme-finger firstname.lastname@example.org-PGP:F49C2183787CBC49717524ED25CC90C9
