Anthrox were an English-based demo and cracking group, born in 1989 (though they were announced as a new group as late as in Zine 5 in early june of 1990) by englishmen Hydro and Count Zero. They released a fair few games and board tools (their boardtool section was subtitled Gods'Gift) in their time on the amiga, but the group as such made a much larger impact as crackers and code innovators on console platforms like snes, gbc/gba and n64. The amiga section was decleared dead in 1994, but the group continues to exist and innovate on several console platforms. Their former website http://www.anthrox.com is now a webshop for console supplies, run by some of the original members.
The july 1990 release Utility Disk No. 4 listed Aztech; Bassline, Count Zero, Hydro, Jinxter, Laughing Hyena, Mungo, Raster, Red Rooster and Smurf as members.
The march 1991 New Spread Intro contained a full memberlist, listing Avatar (music), Aztech (music), Spock (code cracking), Coq Rouge (mailtrade), Dr. Amigo (mailtrade), Fluid (graphics), Griffin (sysop), Hydro (graphics mailtrade management), Jason (graphics), JHL (code train crack), Laughing Hyena (code), Mad Axeman (modemtrade), Marcus (graphics mailtrade), Mechanic (sysop), Mr. Spinhead (sysop), Mungo (graphics mailtrade management), Retaliator (code mailtrade), Ronnie (graphics), Spider (modemtrade), Storm (code crack), T.G.R (code), The Dreamer (sysop), The Imposter (music), The Master (sysop), Thrash (code mailtrade), Trooper (graphics), Xiphoid Process (sysop), Yobbo (code graphics). A december 1991 text file (the solution for the game Another World) announced Ice Manx Damien and Daisy Chainsaw as new members.
The april 1992 Rebels pack Sweetest Perfection 39 welcomed Ideal as a new member from Anthrox.
In 1994, Flesh joined from Angels, and Agressor joined from Ram Jam (source: ROM 1). The group was active releasing games at least for the SNES and Sega Megadrive/Genesis this year. The december release 10 Yard Fight listed Mad Turnip, Ice, Sigma 7, Picard, The Doctor, Pothead, The White Knight & Pan as members of the console section at that time.
Around 1996 they also did a couple of Atari Jaguar rom-dumps.
