The NAG-BUSTER version 1.2b, Copyright (c) 1992-1994 Erik FammChanges and bugs fixed (in addition to new patches):----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.61:
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Several different editions of Telix 3.20 .EXE-files created aproblem since the NAG-BUSTER looks for a specified filesize ofthe .EXE-file for recognition of the correct version. (It alsochecks bytes at pre-set offsets). The solution was to create anotherpatch for the second TELIX.EXE, so now there is support for twodifferent Telix 3.20s. This explains why their filesizes are notedin parentheses in the DOS programs-menu.----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.62:
----------------------------------------------------------------------- The patch for QMail 1stReader 1.00 did not work satisfactory.In addition to the fact that the patch did not bypass all windows,I wasn't aware of the built-in limit of messages per conference(20 only). Now, you can have up to 400 messages - as with theregistered version. (Hey, why only 400...?)- The Hyperkey v.4.16 patch only removed the delay screen, butthe time limit was still active. Fixed.- If the user had a program with incorrect bytes at a specified locationalthough the filesize was correct, a window should pop up tellingthat the program had a wrong version. This did not happen consistently.The patch only halted and the program returned to either the DOS menuor the Windows menu. Fixed.- A minor error with the time function written to the log file has beenfixed.- BUSTER.EXE is no longer compressed, thereby running faster but obviouslyoccupies more disk space.----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.63.
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Several new patches were added.- A few cosmethic changes were made.----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.64
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Reported bugs were found in both the Offline Express TD patch and inthe Qedit patch. The OLX patch would not run because of an errorwith the checking routines in NAG-BUSTER. The Qedit patch accidentallyaltered some colors in Qedit. Both patches seems to work fine now.Please let me know if you still encounter difficulties.- In version 0.63 I added a Games menu (with only one patch at present).
That project is now on ice.- A few cosmethic changes were made - as usual. I never make up my mind...----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.65
----------------------------------------------------------------------- The mouse double-click did not work in the DOS/WINDOWS menus. Fixed.
First, point at the program, then double-click the mouse to choose it.- Automatic backup copying of program files to .BAK is implemented - notyet with .OVR and .OVL-files, though. ----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.66----------------------------------------------------------------------- New patches only.----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.70
----------------------------------------------------------------------A major rewriting of NAG-BUSTER in this version, so beware of anyunfortunate bugs. Please report found bugs to me - in writing, please.- Automatic decompression of compressed files implemented as a resultof user request. Thanks for the feed-back!The new decompression routine does not bother with headers in thecompressed files. The decompression routine jumps to DOS, runsCOMPBUST.EXE, which runs the program to be patched with a interrupthook, using disk or EMS (if any) swapping to save memory and finallyit is saved back on disk after decompression found place in memory.Please report problems!Do not use the old BUSTLZ.EXE and BUSTPK.EXE any more! Delete them!- Added a convenient 'Jump to DOS Shell' - menu choice using disk orEMS (if any) swapping to save low memory.- Automatic backup copying of .OVR files, too.- Better (I think) information to the user of what is actually goingon in NAG-BUSTER. Many windows was difficult to follow, as they passedthe user's eye too quickly. Now, things move a bit slower, but informyou better. Please, contribute with your opinion on this.- Safer checking of .OVR/OVL files before patching. In earlier versionsNAG-BUSTER checked .EXE files thoroughly, but if there also was a.OVR to patch also, NAG-BUSTER did not check sufficiently for the.OVR file's validity, but assumed that it was correct since the.EXE file was. No problems were discovered, though, but you can neverbe *too' sure... Now, .OVR files are checked the same way as .EXEfiles before patching. NAG-BUSTER checks and patches the .EXE filefirst, then the .OVR file.- An error was discovered in the Catdisk v.6.15 patch for CATDISK.EXE:the specified filesize was 153666 bytes, but should have been 153664.- The Media Cataloging System patch caused the program to hang whenthe user chose "F2-Track Notes". I addition, a nag window popped upwhen the user reached 80 artists in the database. Fixed.- Some of the patches in the 0.65 that also had to patch overlay-files
(i.e. files with a .OVR or OVL extension) did not completesuccessfully due to a minor programming error. Fixed.- As opposed to earlier Blaster Master patches, the patch for version5.7 also eliminates the 25 second limitation of editing (only recentlyI became aware of this limit).----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.71
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Minor adjustments only----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.72
----------------------------------------------------------------------- I have written a color setup program and changed all color routines inNAG-BUSTER to match with BCOLORS.EXE. You should be able to choose acolor setup that suits you.- It is now possible to pay for NAG-BUSTER by using one of several creditcards. Therefore, the registration form and routines have beenrewritten.----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.74 (5 January 1994)
----------------------------------------------------------------------- The patch for PCopy 9.3 did not work. Fixed. Read about this patch inPATCHES.NFO.- The patches for ArcMaster 9.6 and Amisetup 2.10 mixed places in theDOS programs menu. Fixed. Sorry...- Added a color palette for color monitors.Any use of screen savers that reset the monitor after a keypresswill also reset the color palette to your defaults.----------------------------------------------------------------------Starting with version 0.75, patches for some of the older versions will
be deleted. I will keep the patches for the two most recent versions ofany program.----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 0.74B (21 January 1994)
----------------------------------------------------------------------- The patch for WinFast 3.4b did not work satisfactory. It removed the nag,but when the user exited Windows and restarted it, the nag was back.Fixed.- VGA COPY PRO 5.2: A great many things can be said about this"program" (but I will not extend my critisism any further than tomy opinion found in PATCHES.NFO). However, there is a bug in my patch,ie. VGA COPY exits at the point where you attempt to format a disk. Thisis a checksum in case of tampering by the user. Many thanks to Mr. TomLiberman (Ontario, Canada) for letting me know. And I thought I wasthrough with VGACOPY!(Upgrades of this dreadful program will not be patched by me!).Btw.: Some users told me about a filesize error message appearing as theystarted the second patch run on VGACOPY and thought this was a bug inNAG-BUSTER. It isn't. Read PATCHES.NFO again - VGACOPY.EXE has to bepatched once before it can be decompressed. Therefore the filesize mustbe wrong when NAG-BUSTER comes to the second patch. As you can see fromthe "error" message, "NAG-BUSTER will now try to decompress VGACOPY". Justpress a key and let NAG-BUSTER proceed. It will decompress VGACOPY tothe correct filesize and finally write the main patch into VGACOPY.EXE.- A similar bug occurred in WINZIP v.5.0 and has been fixed.----------------------------------------------------------------------Version 1.0 (15 March 1994)----------------------------------------------------------------------- I changed my mind about the deletion of older versions from NAG-BUSTER0.75 (see above). I'll hang on to them until further notice.- There won't be a 0.75 version. I have decided to skip beta-testing now
because I haven't encountered any bugs in the main program, nor have Ireceived any bug-reports from the users. The few "bugs" that are notedand fixed, was found in some of the patches, not in the main programroutines. Therefore, the next version is shipped as 1.0 Release.
