Byterapers is a Finnish-based demo and cracking group, originally formed on the c64 in 1986 by Kasper. First Official Demo was released in 1987, and listed Kasper, Grendel, Professor Fate and The Boss as members. Bio adapted from biography by Grendel published in History Disk 3 (1991).

In january 1988 the memberlist was: Kasper, Grendel, Professor Fate, Black Belt, Motorsyntax, Mr. Hat, MIY-88, Mr.T, The Boss, TWS, Growl, Mr. Arcade, Kokis. During the years a lot of changes happened. Kasper left the scene, Fate left the scene, BB left the scene during 89. Motorsyntax was kicked out. Mr.Hat the same. MIY-88 seems to be still active, with name MIY-91, maybe in Beastie Boys. Mr.T is in Freedom Force with the name Rolex I think. Boss left the scene. TWS has been in Accession since autumm 88. Growl left the scene during 89. Mr. Arcade is now in Wizzcat with name Sardon.

Byterapers rose to be the leading Finnish cracking group in the winter/spring of 1988, much thanks to Rockstar, Python's big brother. In may Byterapers attended Digiparty 1988 and released their first Amiga demo, which unfortunately has been lost. The summer was a good time for the group, releasing good cracks steadily. Rockstar was learning fast the secrets of efficient cracks. Unfortunately, after THE Byterapers copyparty 8-14.8.1988, whole group sank first time into lazyness and the only active members were Action Force / (B). They kept the (B) flag up for some months, but then bored being only active members in (B) and left to form own group Index. Index didn't last long, and was soon sucked into Phalanx (Amiga side). 64-guys formed then Contex, which was to be later the No:1 Finnish group after Byterapers quitted. Autumm 88 a good small Swedish group named Stage 3 joined almost fully into (B). In that trade (B) gained some skilled 64-coders, as well as some other talents. After that (B) got some of their best 64-demos ever, all made by CSA. From those times are the old tradition having a division in Sweden - there are still the same core-members. Later on, CSA bought an Amiga, and started to code on it. Couple of months later, he released his 1st Amiga demo. During spring 1989 Byterapers could be counted as one of the TOP 5 groups in Finland, after releasing Muzzax I and Muzzax II in the same month.

During winter 88/89 Byterapers was again a bit lazy. But that thing was to be changed soon. Rockstar had learnt awful lot about cracking. We found many good original sources, some new members and kicked 20 Swedish members out. So began the Golden Times Of Byterapers. The group had never been so active. Cracks came almost daily, and they were spread VERY well. Not forgetting that they were all very fast, and first time EVER a FINNISH group appeared into WORLD'S CRACKING LISTS. And there were no modems in use by us. We did it all by mail! The peak of success was being voted as WORLD'S 9TH BEST CRACKING CREW, at the most popular pirate's magazine PIRATES. Autumm/winter 89 (B) quitted at once the whole 64 section, and moved completely on Amiga. Now was proved that 64-groups moving to Amiga never succeed so well, as (B) has NEVER been as active/famous/good as we were on 64-times.

After being only a Amiga group, and 3 years of work, whole group sank into some kind of suspended animation... Most guys could do anything, CSA became lazy etc etc etc. Just JTP released his 1st Amiga demo, but then nothing until the Byterapers, Scoopex, Extasy Party 1990 in august. That time was a comeback tried, but it failed and everyone continued their sleeps. At the party was released demo 'THE BEGINNING', that was possibly the first Finnish demo with planned plot, and excellent idea. Only bad it's code wasn't as good as idea, as it was JTP's 2nd Amiga demo - so when released it didn't get regards. Only later it's been praised, when people have looked it through. Then at November/December new comeback was tried. Grendel started to organize whole thing again, before leaving to army. And it almost succeed! Group was again working well, and Grendel left to army with good mood. Turtle and Python were co-leaders, but then the horror struck!!!!! Turtle and Python couldn't handle the group AT ALL! They made everyone angry, and soon guys started to leave the group. Very soon it seemed there's only two guys left in Byterapers: Grendel and JTP. Luckily, Grendel had to spend only two months in army, and got home. After two months he started to re-organize the group, and it's now getting back onto feet... But for about two months, the group was as good as dead....

Voted #8 most popular group in Fleur 3 (may 1999).

The memberlist on their homepage 2012-08-26 listed Albert, AMJ, Birra, CSA, Dr. Dick, Dr. Star, Enema, Grendel, Gurdan, Hazard, HBT, HC-Anna, Icemann, Jate, Jazz, JTP, Jucca, Kasper, Kraku, Lanttu, Lasse, Micron, Mike, Mistral, Mordicus, Mr. Sex, Mysdee, Nico, Professor Fate, Proton, Reznor, Sivu, Speed-Head, Suckho, T.o.B, Unroot Pimple and XWD.
