The Dynamic Duo was a group made up of two friends from Holzwickede near Dortmund, Germany.
The two guys were Hans-Jürgen Grahl (The Executor – org, gfx, spreading) and Robin Wünderlich (The Dark Angle – code, crack).
The group was formed in 1985, and was one of the best and most active groups in 1986 with lots of releases like Ghosts ‘n Goblins, Green Beret, Super Cycle, Alley Cat, 10th Frame.
The two friends originally had no contacts and all their spreading was handled by Headbanger (Georg Panagiatidis) from Dinslaken, Germany and his two copy-slaves Krabat and Syntax 2001, who did most of his work for him!The group finally disbanded in 1988 and The Dark Angle went on to cracking on the Amiga, under Quartex.
I am not 100% sure, but chances are he was known under the handle “Rob” there in 1989… The two also wrote the game “Thunderboy” for Rainbow Arts on the Amiga.
Some time after this The Executor founded the software import and reseller firm “Dynatex” (DYNAmic Duo/quarTEX – no joke! – http://www.dynatex.de), which he
eventually sold to another company in February of 2000.

Sadly The Executor had a car accident later in the year, leaving him in a comatose state which he will likely never wake from 😦

These guys were one of the most famous if not THE most famous German cracking group ever! After such a statement, I guess you want some information behind their classic intros, well here we go…

The Dynamic Duo was a group made up of two friends from Holzwickede near Dortmund, Germany. The two guys were Hans-Juergen Grahl (The Executor) & Robin Wuenderlich (The Dark Angle).

The group was formed in 1985, and was one of the best and most active groups in 1986 with lots of releases like Ghosts ‘n Goblins, Green Beret, Super Cycle, Paper Boy and 10th Frame. The two friends originally had no contacts and all their spreading was handled by Headbanger (Georg Panagiatidis) from Dinslaken, Germany and his two copy-slaves Krabat and Syntax 2001.

The group finally disbanded in 1988 and The Dark Angle (RW) moved on to crack on the Amiga under Quartex. The duo also wrote the game “Thunderboy” for Rainbow Arts on the Amiga. Sometime after this The Executor founded the software import and reseller firm “Dynatex” (DYNAmic Duo/quarTEX – http://www.dynatex.de), which he eventually sold to another company in February 2000. Sadly The Executor (HJG) had a car accident later in the year, leaving him in a coma that he may never awaken from. 😦

The duo had many quality releases with hardly any bugs or problems, which was quite special in that early period of cracking history.

Trivia:

* HJG invited everyone from The Light Circle (mentioned later in this article) to his big birthday party. MWS/Radwar: “we celebrated at his house for 2 days. HJG, RADWAR, FCG, CRM, NSC and some others I can’t remember. RW of DD cracked the game W.A.R. while we were boozing and Headbanger came later also to Executor’s house to exchange some new software. So the birthday party changed into a small and cosy copy-party”.
