            HOW TO UNPROTECT "KINDERCOMP" AND "KIDS ON KEYS"
                     GAMES FROM SPINNAKER SOFTWARE

    These "unprotects" will permit the backing-up of the "Kindercomp"
and "Kids on Keys" games as well as permitting hard disk owners to run
the games without the original disks in drive A.  Some familiarity with
the DEBUG program on the PC-DOS disk is assumed.

                               KINDERCOMP
                               ----------
      Note: The procedures below apply to version 1.0 of this game.

1. Take out the KINDERCOMP disk and make a copy of it on another disk
using "COPY A:*.* B:" .  Do not make the copy using DISKCOPY since the
disk is protected.  Put the original away in your "archives".

2. Put your DOS diskette in drive A and the KINDERCOMP copy in drive B.

3. Follow the "script" below.  Lowercase is your input, uppercase is
DEBUG's response.  XXXX means the numbers in these spaces will vary
depending on your machine's configuration.  Note: if DEBUG shows
something other than what is indicated below, you have a different
version and this unprotect will not work.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A>ren b:kdc_ib.exe *.xxx

    A>debug b:kdc_ib.xxx
    -u 3b54,3b54
    XXXX:3B54 CD13         INT 13
    -e 3b54
    XXXX:3B54  CD.eb   13.4a               (note: hit space bar after "eb")
    -w
    Writing 3B00 bytes
    -q

    A>ren b:kdc_ib.xxx *.exe
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. KINDERCOMP is now unprotected.
