View Full Version : Does have a Scala MM Key?
I'm just wondering if between you hackers and crackers if you had a Scala MM key.
Here is how it is. I have the two books for Scala Multimedia 200 with the 210 upgrade, with all original 8 disks, but the manual was talking about a red key that goes in the joystick port :-o , oh crap no key.
Well i tried talking to Scala (stupid mistake), and they told me to the discontinued Amiga stuff and sold it all to Soft Hut. So I wrote Soft Hut (another stupid mistake), to see if they had those keys, they said they only had enough for the copies they had, but I could glady spend $100 for Scala MM 400
Well that is my AmigaOne money, or my getting drunk because I really think my job sucks money, so I can't give that up yet.
So do any of you have a red key , or at least know the resistor values to the key ( think there was a keyless Scala, but I'm not sure.)

Subject: Re: AMIGA FAQ: I have an older version of Scala for the Amiga (prior to MM300 or IC400). Will it work on an A1200 or A4000?

So its ok for me to download scala, excellent,
thank you scala
I have pity for you man....it wouldnt be piracy if you did get a copy of it ...since Scala basically said 'we dont care' ....i talked to them a while back and they basically said 'if you can find a crack scal mm for amigas yours'....so who knows...

Once upon a time, when there were still Amiga mags around, there was a mag which had ScalaMM300 on their coverdisk. Dongle free and fully functional!
I think I have two of such cdroms, and if so, I'd be glad to make you happy with one of them. That is: if you care for it.
Oto: I do have a home-built dongle for MM300. We had an A4000 with MM300 and when it was stolen, Scala wouldn't provide us with a replacement dongle, even though we had the original floppys and registration cards. But somehow I found a way to make our own dongle. Illegal, that was, at that time. but now, when Scala gave up further development of MM, I wonder how illegal it would be today.
But I think you still can buy MM400, which is dongle free and not too expensive.
Err, I hope I wasn't being called a pirate... Geez like all my software is legite (okay except that one copy of ArtWorx Strip Poker I had when I was 12 years old :-D )
Yeah because I got that Scala Package along with a huge amount of other Amiga things from eBay and what not a long time ago, and didn't just want to let it go to waste.

The dongle is very easy to make, two resistors form a potential
divider to produce a certain voltage which is read by the computer's A
to D converter, which is read by Scala.
Here's a nice budget picture for you:
Give me a yell if you get stuck.

I've got a dongle free version of " InfoChannel" kicking about round here somewhere
