I was referring to the the thread again, where someone used a
modified allegro dll to just print out the datafile password. This could
be extended to output the complete unencrypted datafile, in case the
encryption algorithm could be changed so the plaintext password is never
manipulated in the code.. so there's not much gained by that. I.e.
instead of adding "printf (password)" somewhere in pack_fopen, i'd go
into "datafile_read_bitmap" (or how it is called) and add a
"save_bitmap" there :)
