Crinkfix by snq/aardbei

So here's a small tool that works around a problem that crinkler has with windows 7.
It doesn't work for all intros, I'm not sure what that depends on, I assume there is
more than one incompatibility with win7?
Atrium gives an error "d3d9" which might be a hint? I don't know..
It does work with eg Ixaleno.

Usage then, the simplest way is to just drag the intro exe onto crinkfix.exe.
Or if you are oldschool and use cmd, "crinkfix whatever.exe"

What crinkfix does is make sure that crinkler gets the correct kernel32 base address.
It does that by injecting some code into the process that reorganizes the PEB module
data to make sure the base address for kernel32.dll is the position where crinkler
expects it to be. This is done at runtime and the executable won't be modified.

Well like I said it doesn't work for all intros so don't expect too much. But I
figured it's better than nothing for now :)

hehe, this is pretty cool hack :)

We are just about to wrap up a new version of crinkler with some importing code we believe to be compatible with win7 as well as the older windows versions.

In order to fix intros compressed with older versions of crinkler, without access to the source code, we have implemented a 'recompression' feature that decompresses an intro, replaces the importing code and recompresses it to a size that will hopefully still be under 4k.

This actually seems to work quite well, but I will obviously have to test it thoroughly, which is easy with a few hundred crinkler compressed intros to choose from :)

I figured there would be a fix in the next version :)
But I spent a couple of hours on this thing and figured I might as well put it online, maybe someone else has use for it until then.

Unfortunately I still can't watch my favorite intros, I guess I'll wait for the next version :)

And it obviously does run under win7? I've only tested on the 64 bit RC1 version though..
