Titanic Adventure out of Time crack?

I've found on some site an information that someone has made a crack for this game, yet instead of a download link there was only this:
Code:
* Referenced by a (U)nconditional or (C)onditional Jump at Address: 
|:00433A12(C) 
| 
:00433A23 66837C241200            cmp word ptr [esp+12], 0000 
:00433A29 741A                    je 00433A45<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< :00433A2B 6633C0                  xor ax, ax 
:00433A2E 8B8C2440020000          mov ecx, dword ptr [esp+00000240] 
:00433A35 66C7010100              mov word ptr [ecx], 0001 
:00433A3A 5D                      pop ebp 
:00433A3B 5F                      pop edi 
:00433A3C 5E                      pop esi 
:00433A3D 5B                      pop ebx 
:00433A3E 81C428020000            add esp, 00000228 
:00433A44 C3                      ret
Can someone tell me what does it mean? Is it something I can patch my game .exe with? How can I use it?

Here's the original TI.exe if someone would like to have a look:

And there's the original thread where I found that code:

(Wrong forum, moved.)

This is for a different version but you can find the same byte sequence at physical offset 00035563 (= virtual address 00436163) in the TI.EXE you've uploaded. Funnily enough, the actual patch is hidden as it is taken for HTML code, but in the page source you can see that the bytes 74 1A (JE ...) should be changed to 90 90 (NOP NOP). (All values in hexadecimal.)

Can you patch the executable yourself?

Thank you for the answer and moving to the correct forum!

I'm afraid I have literally no knowledge of how to patch any executables. I have never tried anything like that before and I don't even know how to do this and where to start.

I have placed it in the main Titanic folder, where the TI.exe file is stored. I opened the patch via cmd and all I see is an error: "Patching TI.EXE - CRC error!". Am I doing something wrong?

I followed Joe's Instructions & using hex edit i patched the bytes to 90 90 as per instructions. Try it out & see if it works for you.

Thanks again! <3

check your exe vs the one posted in first topic & see if same version. if not then that might be the reason for the error??

Oh dear, I see I have not returned to write if that crack did indeed work or not.

Well yes, it did! The game works flawless now without the need to put cd everytime it asks. Thank you once again!

It seems different Titanic copies have different .exes, resulting in many other copies being not compatible with the above crack made for my version of the game.

Because of that I decided to make a no cd patch for the version of the game present in the replacement installer of play-old-pc-games.com site.

I have also added a small readme which should help people in patching their own version of the game.
