  Special Note:
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  Regarding vitality's proper and the nfo they included in their 'proper' of
  The Sims Carnival SnapCity:
  
  They quote us out of context from a 3 year old release, where HOODLUM used
  a loader to completely bypass the safedisc cdcheck used in that game.
  As said, the proper reason then was that a loader exe was used, where the 
  loader code was used to execute the ENTIRE protected exe. This is a 
  completely different situation, and emulation of for instance sdapiv2 has 
  always been permitted.
  
  Unlike they claim in their nfo, their crack is not a fully rebuilt executable
  and much of the securom code is still left in their 'fully rebuilt crack'. 
  Lets analyse their 'complete gamecode rebuilt crack':
  
  1) their crack is upx compressed, which makes it impossible to see gamecode 
  directly (This may fool you to believe their exe is fully rebuilt and 
  may fool you into thinking that exe size says anything about performance)

  2) when you check the header of the unpacked vitality crack (upx moved it 
  somewhere in memory ;-) you can see that vitality merged all Securom 
  Sections into a 1x9mb mess (which is even used by their 'fully rebuilt' 
  crack, as we will later show)

  3) when you further examine the gamecode (which vitality wants you to believe 
  its completely rebuilt) you will encounter the following peace of code,
  which refers to their messy 9mb section of securom code:
  
  004B1913  PUSH 00404816
  004B1918  PUSH 222D8522
  004B191D  PUSHFD
  004B191E  XOR DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+4],224559A2
  004B1926  POPFD
  004B1927  POP EAX
  004B1928  JMP SHORT 004B1929
  004B1929  CALL NEAR EAX
  ->
  0068DC80  JMP NEAR DWORD PTR DS:[CE2988]           ;00BDE000
  0068DC86  PUSH EAX
  0068DC87  MOV EAX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+8]
  0068DC8B  MOV DWORD PTR DS:[EAX+C],50
  0068DC92  POP EAX
  0068DC93  JMP NEAR DWORD PTR DS:[CE2988]
  ->
  00BDE000  PUSHAD
  00BDE001  PUSHFD
  00BDE002  MOV EAX,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+28]
  00BDE006  CALL 00BDE00B
  00BDE00B  POP EBX
  00BDE00C  ADD EBX,35
  00BDE00F  XOR ECX,ECX
  00BDE011  CMP DWORD PTR DS:[ECX+EBX],EAX
  00BDE014  JE SHORT 00BDE01B
  00BDE016  ADD ECX,8
  00BDE019  JMP SHORT 00BDE011
  00BDE01B  MOV EAX,DWORD PTR DS:[ECX+EBX+4]
  00BDE01F  PUSH EAX
  00BDE020  LEA ESP,DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+4]
  00BDE024  POPFD
  00BDE025  POPAD
  00BDE026  JMP NEAR DWORD PTR SS:[ESP-28]
  ->
  00BE1169  POP EAX                                  ; 004B192B
  00BE116A  XCHG DWORD PTR SS:[ESP],EAX
  00BE116D  JMP NEAR DWORD PTR DS:[53D1C8]           ; kernel32.GetSystemTimeAsFileTime



  
  While this same instruction, rebuilt in a proper way would be:
  
	CALL DWORD PTR DS:[53D1C8]           ; kernel32.GetSystemTimeAsFileTime
  
  Of course this is just a very small example, and 1 of the many instructions 
  that are emulated in vitality's 'fully rebuilt crack'.
  As we mentioned above they have 9MB of Securom Code/Values in their messy
  section. So they do not adhere to their own arguement that 'protections 
  should be removed entirely'.
   
  So to sum it up, vitality uses upx to pack their exe to hide their shady
  crack methods, lie about fully rebuilding securom and propering valid cracks 
  by other groups with possibly worse cracks.
   
  We will not repeat this story every time, but we would just like to point
  out the bullshit and the lying of vitality once again, since many people
  still don't seem to understand how lame they really are and let them get 
  away with these useless propers with bullshit propaganda.
