Secondly.
Is it worth the effort to create the original file with the bit changed, so the copy protection is disabled.
I know that I can just use the restunts executable or a crack, but I wish for an as clean as possible version without the copy protection.

It can be done, i'm sure of that.

Alright, it might be more difficult than I thought when writing the above post. It can still be done, but there are better solutions.
The closest thing to one with the old game files is this one:

ST4DLDR - Stunts/4D Sports Driving loader [bypass security of all versions]

can you attach the files here - archive.org sometimes looses the stuff

builds out of the box with current nasm

nasm.exe st4dldr.asm -fbin -o st4dldr.com

its starts load.exe, waits for complete load (by hooking video bios int and wait for gfx mode change or something) and disables the password check

https://www.bttr-software.de/ is still active - only this stunts tool is missing - try asking the author what the reason for the removal was (maybe bugs)

It works well.
The other cracks make all answers acceptable, so there is a difference there.
I do have the feeling the game freezes a moment when I hit start driving..

maybe thats the reason for the author ripping of the homepage

one more - for an non-developer: there are sooo many cases that can popup an error - and under dos there are even more millions of that - so "works well"
is nothing more then "its full of crap, but i can't smell it so far" :)

I am well aware of that.
That's why in the post I made for the program itself, i stated:

this crack seems to be a better choice than the current ones.

I can't see a bug unless it pokes me in the eye, so I try to temper my enthusiasm until a certified programmer has given his opinion. 8)

The freeze has nothing to do with the program but with my DOSBox settings.
Increasing the cycles to match other versions makes the game behave identical to Restunts or SV11|M10.
