Group Information For Ackerlight

Last Updated: 8 Aug. 2019

Ackerlight is born from the union of a group from Strasbourg "La Marque Jaune" with the group " Delta Line " from Metz.

There was about 20 members, most of them in France, some in Switzerland. Cracks, trainers, were for most of them done by H. Syl, musics where done by Fred, which talent had great success at it's beginning.

In less than a year, Ackerlight became the best french hacker group on Amiga, and cracked many games, the most renowned were Speedball & Menace, but also created game compilations, disk newspaper (Ackernews 1 & 2), game walkthrough (bard's tale solver), or music disks.

The very fast success the group had, was because of its' huge contact list (more than 140 people, all without Internet), good sources to get the games before their release (thanks to game mags like Jostick, Tilt (yes!)) but also from the magician king
of hard cracks : H. Syl. It was an awesome team work

In 1989, at the apotheosis, the group joined a small group of programmers from Metz, WildCopper. This being said, Fred from WildCopper didn't think this grouping
was cool and hide an insult message on Ackerlight in the Wild Copper megademo.

The hacker activity stopped brutally in autumn 1989, when Police arrested three members of Ackerlight for interrogation. Two were condemned for fine and suspended sentence.

A demo, the Last Sun Demo from JP was programmed, and was the Goodbye from Ackerlight to the Scene, on sunset background and sad music.

However, a few days after the end of the group, EAM, a game company, seeing the awesome programmation proposed the creation of a company, Ackerlight Software, destined to game programing. This was a sort of rebirth for Ackerlight, with an interview of September 1989 published in the french newspaper Micro Mag two month later.

Many projects begun, but none were finished. Here are they, the first was almost finished, the last was far from release.
