EV Nova Captain Hector won't go away!

I have a registered copy of EV Nova (the registration I used was from this website). No matter what version of EV Nova I use, Captain Hector won't go away, even though the game recognizes the game as registered. Any ideas? In the OS X version, she even steals 90% of my credits per pass, and she starts a new pass as soon as she leaves the system. This game is unplayable until I can get rid of that damn bird.

That would be worth Googleling. There have been some games that can somehow tell if you have cracked them, and/or cheated in registration and make the game unplayable. Should be interesting to see if anyone else has had this result.

They say this can be a glitch -> https://evn.fandom.com/wiki/Hector

Yeah, that was the only mention of the glitch (or potential feature) that I could find when I tried googling it. I never had this problem when I played this game back in the day, the 2 main differences being I played it on a computer it was designed for, and I had a genuine registration.

If I recall, when I ran a cracked version on Windows, Captain Hector never showed up and all was well, except it didn’t run nearly as smooth as the Mac versions do. I have the Hector issue in both Sheepshaver OS9 and native OS X Mojave, but she doesn’t take my money in the OS9 version from what I can tell.
