Real Name: Fernando Aguilar
Country: United States of America
Date of Death: 24/04/2020
I was informed today by Jazzcat that By-Tor had passed away by heart attack on 24/04/2020.
What a sad story as i had some little chats with By-Tor and even had a tattoo of ESI a few years ago that i sent to By-Tor back then and he was very glad i did it . he even publish it on his facebook face . He always was very happy to speak on ESI group when he had the chance.
Fernando (By-Tor) was a member of the iconic and legendary group in the history of Commodore 64 scene , the amazing : Eagle Soft Incorporated from America (originally from Canada) and was a sysop of the BBS . He was in charge of the Public relations , organizer and a modem trader for delivering ESI cracks all over Europe and the states .
I think there is not a single commodore fan from the golden era on mid 80’s (the best times of the Commodore world) who don’t remember fondly the well-known intros in front of their cracks by Eagle Soft incorporated , probably the most known intro of all-times cracks , this one !!
background about ESI (taken from Recollecion #2 issue by Jazzcat/ONS)
During the early years of the group which were 1982 to 1985, a steady amount of group-releases made it to the bulletin boards, piracy was still in its infancy and most of the releases just contained the text “Courtesy of Eagle Soft” or “Broken by Eagle Soft Inc”. In late 1985 and early 1986 this changed, with an increased amount of releases and intros. At that point, something of interest to mention is that Eagle Soft had two females who painted graphics for them, Ladyhawk/TSC (Thee Supreme Council) and Scorpio. Ladyhawk (Jane) painted graphics for the first intro showing an eagle that was used in 1986, whilst Scorpio painted the most famous picture, used mostly in the releases between 1987 and 1988
The group really stood out, having their own style, using witty scroll-text in their intros inspired by the Canadian rock group known as Rush. Some of the lyrics used made real good sense in conjunction with ESI as a cracking group, such as “Beneath the noble bird, between the proudest words, behind the beauty, cracks appear!”
Epyx were the main company that were targeted and ESI literally snatched and released all their titles. Most of the games released back then were cracked by Mitch and in some cases other crackers in the group such as Kombalar (Chris) and Mutant-X (Tom). Their main supplier during their most active year (1987) was the group SOHO (Suppliers Of Hot Originals) and of this group the supplier was Tinman (Charlie), who later joined ESI in 1988 (a subtle way for ESI to eliminate supply to other groups also).

written by By-Tor
A typical day for ESI members ran something like this…
By-tor – work security, came home maintained the BBS. Started calls to members (Mitch, Mutant X, Scorpio, Mr IBM, The Gamer, etc.) basically done through PHREAKING… if anyone does not know what that is… in short calling for free with hacked mci /sprint calling cards. Same as hacked conference call codes. Mitch worked at his parent’s candy store in Philadelphia, Scorpio was married to a navy man so she was a stay home mom (2kids), lived 3 miles from me. Mutant X was a really young kid in Texas in school. Same as Mr IBM in Chicago. The Gamer was also local about 1 mile from me and was in the navy. Our main deal was just phreaking our ass off talking to sceners and talking about our releases and such, just basically having fun. Also I was always a “recreational” pot smoker and drinker (smile). Where I think Mitch was always clean to my knowledge. Same as Mutant X and Mr IBM. Scorpio was also a partier and so was The Gamer.
After all members were contacted. (At least the main ones) It was time to get plugged into the scene. Someone would start a conference and just get as many on the line???
As possible, to discuss happenings start trades or set up distributions. In our case once we had something Mitch would send it to me mainly and be included on my BBS “The Fountain of Lamneth” where the other members would get it (2 at a time had 2 lines). This was a lengthy process as old timers know. If I recall correctly it would take 45 min per floppy at 300 baud! Main thing to keep in mind Mitch has always been the core of the team, he has always been a very talented programmer. But he did not like dealing with the rest of it. That’s where I came in (By-Tor). He stuck to cracking, just cracking. I would on the other end run the rest of it. Get releases out to main BBS, manage the rest of the members and assign duties. Mainly was to get releases and up them to main BBS’s and getting other contacts and the packaging for releases etc.
I truly feel without someone doing these necessary things ESI would not have lasted as long. But I still credit Mitch for being the heart of ESI. I am just honoured to have been part of it. I have always been a leader so I fit in just right :). I did run a group before getting into ESI. I started and ran a group called Phun Soft Inc. Which I send a special thanks to Iceman whom lived in New York and he got me plugged into the scene and taught me the scene etiquette and got me in touch with major sceners. (Thanks Iceman!).
So what happens when you have diligently pour every fibre of your being into the scene? Reaching that exciting goal of being number 1? The biggest thrill is the chase. Once you reach that pinnacle and you have proven yourself and you are #1! And mind you stayed there for a good while… In the end it was all for fun, we were young. The thrill of it all starts to dwindle a bit. At this point the Amiga was in the horizon so for some of us spending 1200$ for the next thing was not a priority. We were after all trying to live our normal lives. It would have been awesome to have been able to LIVE that part of our lives forever. But we know it’s not so. At this point each of us started following other interests (of normal life). I myself had met a new set of friends which started with Jason “Jasper”. Started hanging out with him and to make it worse I fell in love with his sister. (Whom shall be un-named). Mitch kept working for a while in his parent’s candy store and our chats became less and less frequent. I do not even recall how much longer he stayed in ESI after I just dropped out. Mutant X and Mr IBM continued with their schooling and since I managed the group and having brought them in. They just dropped out. Scorpio lived locally and having found out one of her talents. I still hung out with her. I found out she had a tremendous connection to getting the best Crystal Meth in San Diego! I got into it as the girl I was in love with started doing it and so I started dealing it and with that came heavy usage. The gamer had his own ‘secret’ talent. Even tho he was in the Navy he used to ‘deal’ pot. So being plugged so well into those 2 outlets. It became my new full time ‘past time’. Mitch I did find out started working in a shop doing automobile audio/sound installs etc… We kept in contact off and on. Scorpio dropped out when she found out I was strung out on Crystal Meth and felt responsible for my state… It was dramatic as she just moved without a word and have never heard from her since! The Gamer I just lost contact with as I hung around my new found friends. Following the ‘grateful dead’ doing heavy psychedelics and tweaking to no end… (I frequently stayed up to 14 days straight!). There is light at the end of every tunnel however…
As ESI/C64 had run its course (at least for me). I would contact some of the guys every so often. Main thing is that running a successful group like ESI it’s a lot of work. I mean with maintaining the BBS contacting everyone, coordinating trading and distributing… if we had high speed internet then, ESI would have lasted a lot longer. Even though I must admit it carried a lot of prestige in recognition as well as financially. I used to charge non-members for access to BBS. I was sent money, hardware etc. for access. Pretty doggone cool! I still have logs in storage of the logins and what people dloaded/uploaded as I had a log being printed out of activity on BBS. The Fountain of Lamneth started with a Commodore 64 exchange (who remembers?) I modified it to include multi file transfers as original version had single file transfer. Originally I was studying to be a programmer, but early on I found out it was too tedious for me and switched to working with hardware instead. Never had the raw talent Mitch has with programming :>. Eventually I switched to C-Net BBS and upgraded to a Prometheus modem at 1200 baud! At that point that modem cost 1200$!!!! But it was carded from me by The Warlock (never in ESI) but I used to give him access and software for various things he would card for me every so often. He was a young kid without anything else to give but he was good at ‘carding’ stuff …So eventually I came to the worst decision of my life. I had lost contact with Mitch completely, continued to drinking, smoking, tweaking, taking mushrooms, acid, doing coke regularly… I was a spun DUCK!
Bottom line, I decided to get rid of all my floppies and my C64 equipment! Only thing I got left is some old BBS logs and a 1650 modem! That baby has a lot of history behind it! It is the original modem that was used to transfer countless ESI releases. I really wish I’d kept all my stuff. I had 2 sfd1001 drives, 1 1541 and 1 1571 drives. I wish I had kept all that stuff. It be priceless about now :). Well around the age of 25 I finally came clean after getting drunk as hell and crashing my 3 month old car. All started with my friend Jason yelling at me in front of all our friends telling me his sister did not love me and to stop pestering her. (Of course I knew that but hey, love and drugs are crazy hehe). That was like in 1988. Then came years of sobriety as God was merciful to me. Eventually I would find Mitch and come back to computers!!! (They’re in my blood!)
On a different note. I have been thinking on how to go unto the next phase of the ESI saga. As it steps out of the GOLDEN era but in my heart still worth mentioning. As after a long while of being clear minded by the grace of God. I finally came back to computers. (Will always be at the core of my very being.) I started using my father’s 286 pc to further my studies and looking for a better job. It sparked that fire in me and bought my own 386 blazing PC! Hahahaha. I got hooked unto IRC … on a network called DAL.NET. Started an ESI tribute group by the name of: Eagle Soft Incorporated!!! (Any surprises??) My current profile pic is the main logo that was used for that group made in collaboration by me and a member from Australia by the name of RockRabbit (very talented graphic artist). He also made the 010101 ESI one… Once again the fame of ESI followed and I built the BIGGEST most popular channel on dal.net. We used to put out site lists. Anyone that remembers that time knows what I am talking about :). Eventually a guy by the name of WarLoX got me in touch with Mitch!!! I was thrilled and found out he was still working at installing automobile audio eq. Got him interested in computers a bit and he started cracking pc utilities mainly as a favour to friends. They were NOT big name utilities but stuff that friends/family wanted but couldn’t afford! At this time I like to take credit for convincing Mitch to use his programming talent and not let it go to waste! I kept telling him that talent of his couldn’t just be for fun. In the end he got a job at big software development company!!! I mean when you have that talent you cannot let it go to waste man! That has always been my main talent… Motivate and lead! I will post some of our ESI PC, intros and other material soon. As I started writing this morning I only meant to give small update on the fact that I was still formulating the best way to continue but all just came on its own just now. Next will share on something that very few people know about ESI and programming that Mitch did that also carried the ESI name! YES!..
Now to the business at hand… I have been struggling with what else to include in the ESI after life story. Tons of thoughts and events come to mind but they are all starting to just mix together. My mind is growing old. At any rate I will just wing it again and go with whatever comes to mind. Continuing on the ESI PC stage… After I came back in contact with Mitch and convinced him to join the PC ESI. He did crack some programs upon requests. Like I said before they were obscure programs that the current sceners could give a crap about. He did it mainly for our friends. We eventually outgrew Dal.net as I myself got caught up in cyberspace big time and used to spend like friggin ALL my free time on IRC just chatting it up running the group. Having online relationships (wow how awful and crappy that sounds!! hahahaha) But is all true. Eventually we moved to the REAL pirate IRC network –Efnet– up to this day the channel still exists. But it’s just a place holder and a reminder of our old beloved ESI group. There was however an exciting time as Mitch and myself share the same inner desire. Getting whatever you can at NO COST! Hahaha. He got me into Direct TV hacking! Bought a programmer several virgin cards online. He started coding to break the protection. WE enjoyed free direct TV for about 2 years or a little more than that. Every-time new protection would come out, he would re-hack it and upload the programming to all involved… I myself made quite a bit of cash programming cards for many locals! Used to charge them anywhere from 100-175$ a pop! Free updates of course Thanks Mitch!!!!!. It even got to the point that he made an ESI intro on the code! After upgrading card and re-inserting it in the receiver a banner would run across the bottom which read: Brought to you by EagleSoft Incorporated. I thought that was friggin cool ass!! . Just excites me to see the good old name on another platform. Who would ever think to see the ESI logo on hacked Direct TV card????
It was all awesome until they came out with the Nagra cards. At that point Mitch had a full time job with a major software company and once again we started moving on in our lives and we dumped Direct TV thing… I omitted several highlights of ESI events but will bring them about as they come to me.

GAUNTLET II + (US GOLD) – December, 1987 – Cracked by Fairlight, Imported by FBR, NTSC Fixed by Mitch. IHELLO…Mitch here (ESI)! I’ve come up with a real fix for this game, but one thing I use is for 2 MHZ mode in the Commodore 128’s; 64 MODE! The reason it blinks, is because the program does not have enough RASTER TIME to scroll the color portion of the game screen. By turning on 2 MHZ at the right time and turining it off when done! Allows plenty of time for the color routine to do its job! This is the ANSWER for all blinking european games! Remember will only run correctly on a Commodore 128 system! Sorry Fairlight/FBR, for removing your crack/import screen….

REACH FOR THE STARS V3.0 – June 28th, 1988 – MISSING
* * * the wasteland editor * * * released by eagle soft incorporated on june 28th, 1988. special thanks go to stingray for his help in logging items and such… those that deserve the greets are: why? , usspe , naa , and the producers of influx . for the most part this editor is self explanitory. make sure you manually save the game before using this editor!! if you don’t then you may not be accessing your character’s most recent stats. the reorder party option is not the same as the one found in the game. this one alters the internal list of characters. the difference is this: the external list (as altered from the game) is basically to let the game know who is in position one so that it pulls money and skills from there during encounters on the map. the internal list controls which character will attack first when the party is engaged in combat. does that make sense? hope so… there is one last thing you should know about the editor. when you choose to edit a character, any diseases said character may have had will automatically be cured. also, if the character was unconcious, wounded, Aor even dead then it will be healed. (note: “wounded” refers to serious, critical, etc. it does not include those characters whose constitution is not at maxcon. in such a case you must manually raise their constitution yourself.) sorry folks, but there aren’t any Crush lyrics today. try the next release… Brush #1 esi #1

A letter from Stan about the “The Head Librarian” the E.S.I. BBS operator.
Stan generously agreed to publish this letter upon here. thanks Stan!
I bought a Vic20 in 1981. I was 23 years old. I didn’t have the luxury of being a little kid that grew up with a micro computer in his bedroom. I was an adult with adult responsibilities: a job, an apartment, and a car. I had to make ends meet on $200 per week. Two years later in 1983, when I was 25, I bought a Commodore 64.I had been buzzing around the local BBS’s for about 2 or more years. On one of these BBS’s I was contacted by a guy who was advertising he wrote a New York State Lottery (Lotto) number selection programs for the Vic20 and the C64, and the name of his company was “MMRS Soft”. I remember reading his post: “Currently available ‘VIC20 LOTTO’ and coming soon, ‘SUPER LOTTO’ for the C64!”. After reading his post I remember sarcastically thinking to myself, “Well big freakin’ whoopity-do… A random number generator. That’s in the Vic20’s User Manual. I hope this guy’s not trying to sell this to anyone.” I let it go.A short time later, he posted that he was looking for a program that copied protected diskettes. He sounded absolutely desperate. At that time, I guess I was one of the few end users in my area that had a nibbler program. Apparently this guy didn’t. It was the “Pirate’s Tool Box”. I’m sure a lot of other people had it, but back then no one was giving it up so easily.After exchanging a few messages, I took pity on him and agreed to give him the program in exchange for a box of new blank diskettes. He agreed. He wanted me to send it to him via modem, but at 300 baud, that would have tied up my only phone line for hours. I agreed to let him visit me. He wasn’t local. He lived in another county which was about a 40 minute drive away, so I gave him directions, and he stopped by the next weekend. We met. We introduced ourselves. He told me his name was John. I offered him a beer, he said no. I offered him a cigarette, he said no. I said, “Well you don’t drink, and you don’t smoke, and I’m all out of hookers. Sorry I can’t offer you anything.” He laughed, so at least I knew he had a sense of humor. I showed him how to use the Pirate’s Tool Box programs, and we made multiple copies.He calls me during the middle of the next week and says, “Wow, that #3 on the menu, ‘Auto Error Back Up’, copies just about everything.” I guess at the time it did.The months go by, and we periodically kept in touch. One day calls me and tells me he is going to start a BBS. I shouldn’t have been surprised by this because he made a very good salary installing P.A. Sytems, and at the time, he lived at home with his parents. So he didn’t have many expenses, and had the extra money to buy all of the hardware.He told me he was in touch with some people from Eagle Soft, and he got permission to open up an Eagle Soft BBS for the East Coast of the USA. I asked, “Who? Eagle Soft? Never heard of them.” 🙂 He said that his handle was going to be, “The Head Librarian”. I said, “You know that some people might take that as a perverted sexual connotation, don’t you?” He said, “Yeah, exactly.” 🙂Well as you can imagine, after that, the software flood gates opened. I mean he stopped by every freakin’ weekend for years with 3 or 4 shopping bags full of diskettes of the latest Eagle Soft releases, imports, utilities, etc. I could hardly keep up organizing it all. It was beyond belief.So I bought a second 1541 drive to help with the copying and the organizing. On one of John’s weekend visits, he brought over a big PC tower case fan that used DC power, but he converted to use AC power, and would plug in to an ordinary electrical outlet. He also brought a sheet of foam filter element, and a screen. He wired up a toggle switch on my 2nd 1541 so I could switch between drives #8 and #9, and put the foam and screen over the vent slots and placed the fan on top to keep the drives cool, as I only had space to stack them vertically. Of course I was grateful, but I had to ask, “John, you’re very generous, and I appreciate it. But why are you doing all of this?” He said, “You gave me my first nibbler program. I will never forget that.”Time goes by, and here comes the Commodore Amiga. John buys himself a Commodore Amiga A500, and dumped all of the C64 stuff. He donated all of his hardware and software to a C64 user group. I wish he would have asked me if I wanted anything before he gave it all away. I would have loved to inherit one of the CBM-1001 disk drives. 🙂So now it’s sometime in 1988 and John, “The Head Librarian”, still runs an Eagle Soft BBS on Long Island, New York, with an Amiga A500 at the helm. But now he also bought a Commodore Colt PC to handle the BBS and free up his A500. We’re still in touch. He tells me I should buy an Amiga A500. Well, that’s great John. but I don’t happen to have an extra $895, do you? You know what happened. I eventually put it on my credit card, and a Commodore 1084d monitor too. Ouch! 🙂So here I am with an A500. I only have one floppy drive and 512k of memory. John decides to upgrade his Amiga and adds a hard drive, and extra memory. He calls me and says, “You should upgrade your Amiga’s memory and add a second floppy.” I jokingly replied, “John, it’s becoming painfully obvious that I can’t afford to hang around with you anymore.” 🙂 He laughed and said, “If you can get from where you work, an old PC 3.5″ floppy drive with jumpers on it that change the sector translation, we might be able connect it to your Amiga. Also get a bunch of 64k memory chips that equal 512k. I have an old Datel empty memory card for the Amiga that I think still works.” So I got the floppy drive and the memory chips from where I worked.The next time he visited, he came over with an empty shell casing for an external 3.5″ floppy, and a PC D25 serial cable he modified to connect the Amiga 2nd floppy drive, and the empty Datel memory card. While I installed the RAM chips in the memory card, he was working on the PC floppy drive moving around the jumpers to match the sector translation on the Amiga. We hooked everything up, and on the first try, it worked. I now had an A500 with 2 working floppy drives, and a 1 meg of ram. Wow! 🙂History repeats itself: Once again, I asked him, “John, I really do appreciate your generosity, but why are you doing all of this?”. He replied, “You gave me my first nibbler program for the C64. I will never forget that.” I said, “Holy shit! The Pirate’s Toolbox? It’s the gift that keeps on giving.” 🙂 After that, for a while we stayed in touch, but less often as time went by.As so often happens in the course of human events, we eventually lost contact. I had not heard from him in a long time, and couldn’t reach him by phone or on his BBS. He never replied. So I wrote him a hand-written letter and mailed it to him. He never responded. When the internet became available, he shut down his dial up BBS, and the phone number was not valid anymore. As of this writing on 03/16/2021, it has been almost 30 years since I last heard from him. If John “The Head Librarian” from Eagle Soft ever shows up on the C64 or Amiga scene, tell him I said “Thanks”. –Stan
