Description
ST4DLDR is a tiny program to disable the car security system a.k.a. document check from the games Brøderbund 'Stunts' and Mindscape '4D Sports Driving'.

Yes, there are already tools to disable the car security system, but none of these works with all versions. — Not even all work with different graphics or sound card settings!

ST4DLDR fills this gap, because it can handle the following game versions.

Brøderbund Stunts 1.0 (Oct 05 1990)
Brøderbund Stunts 1.1 (Feb 12 1991)
Mindscape 4D Sports Driving 1.1 (Dec 13 1990)
Mindscape 4D Sports Driving 1.1 (Feb 25 1991)
System requirements
Intel i8086 microprocessor (or compatibles)
Microsoft MS-DOS 2.0 (or compatibles)
any version of Stunts/4D Sports Driving

Ever tried, ever failed. Try again, fail better.

Currently running 19 separate instances of Stunts or 4D Sports Driving.

Did a quick test. Works good.
Better than the know ways to get past the security question.

With this one the question is never asked just like with the restunts executable.

So to run a version of stunts straight form original disk image, then this crack seems to be a better choice than the current ones.

By the way. I just found it while stumbling around google trying to find out if there is anyone else in the world who still remembers stunts.
And if found this post on a German form. https://www.dosforum.de/viewtopic.php?t=41
It is interesting because of the apparent good quality of the security check bypass and the presence of licence and source code.
