  Game Information:

  The Secrets of Da Vinci: The Forbidden Manuscript is a full recreation of
  the era in which the legendary artist and engineer lived. 
  You become Valdo - a disgraced apprentice of Francesco Melzi, a former 
  disciple of the late Leonardo Da Vinci. Valdo receives a mysterious letter
  asking for help to uncover one of Leonardo's lost codices. Valdo is out of
  work, and the money is too tempting to ignore. So he travels to Italy and
  embarks on a strange and deadly journey, to uncover Master Leonardo's 
  greatest secret. 


  Release Information:

  This fix enables the game to be played on win2k and 9x
                      
  A certain group put out a "proper" of our release of this game earlier.
  in an act of lame abuse of the ind label to release a bash nfo. Unable to
  understand anything at all about the TAGES protection, they mistakenly
  claimed our exe was from some unprotected (or demo) source. Of course
  they are full of shit.
   
  We will not bother wasting too much time explaining why our exe was not 
  from an unprotected source to people who are not even able to detect the 
  TAGES API, let alone reverse it, but checking the resource tree for IDR_RCP
  in the future will avoid you from making these kind of 'claims'.

  The 'ind' release was a copy of our crack, our tags were present in the code
  as well as the TAGES sectors that were, according to them. Non existant.
  Hence this proper

  We apologize for the fact that Da Vinci did not work on win2k/win9x. We will
  prevent this from happening in the future, even though these OS are no longer
  supported by Microsoft.
  
  Enjoy our fixed release.
