The question is simple:
Anyone managed to change anything (even something stupid as the InstantAOL's "gotmail.wav" (I suspect they might be .au files in this non-windows environment?) files in the original CF partition and restore the changed version and still make it work?).
In other words: can you see the files that make up "instantAOL" with a hex editor and edit them? (change the sounds, change words, silly stuff). Does the program do any CRC checking on itself?
I am asking this because I also got the "gamera" client (it's InstantAOL gzipped for use on a linux PC) and found old discussions on the newsgroups where folks talked about "hex editing it to make it report itself as AOL 5.0 for windows".
Well, If anyone knows the filename and hex offset to change this, please report here, or email me directly if you feel that's innapropiate for the public.
