Remade ST/Amiga Format disks with labels
 
As the title says.

Due to CiA going missing and joining forces with Vitno, a lot of my work has been omitted from their site for some reason :(

So here's a taster of the disks & labels that have been completely remade using the original labels as a template. These are near exact replicas of the original labels and took an absolute age.

If AMR are interested, specifically Codetapper or Galaxy, You'll be welcome to the full size images. Just give me a PM :)

I have made the larger, but not the original size, floppies with labels available for anyone who would like them :)

You can find them on the EAB fileserver INSTRUCTIONS HERE, in "Uploads/DH/ST-Amiga Format Remade Disks, Labels & .adf's" :spin

I have added "© 2017 DH" on the shutter but it's not too in your face ;)

Looks good sorry to go off topic - Do you know of any Amiga/ST Dual Format ADFs anywhere

After tried redoing just a few labels for my own usage, I know how time consuming it can be to do this if you want it to look just right, so nice work. :)

Thanks. Unfortunately, I only know of the single format adf's that have been created. I'm pretty sure the guys are/were working on re-dumping and re-sorting them all out again.

Thanks. I only did this because there was never a full set of floppy labels anywhere on the interwebs, nor high quality, although I do believe codetapper has high quality scans of most, but perhaps not all.

Is there still a list somewhere of needed disk and CD scans that's up to date? I have a higher resolution scanner than I did last time I scanned some, I'd be happy to look through again and see if I have any needed disks for scanning.

DH 24 November 2017 16:08

I'll still have a list somewhere on my PC ptyerman, finding it will be the problem though :crazy

Oh wait, I have the de-funked CiA forum for test purposes on my PC, so I could look in there first to see what the excel file, or whatever format it was, is and see if I can dig it up, otherwise it may be a gruelling search to find it :)

ptyerman 24 November 2017 16:19

I couldn't find anything when I looked that is remotely up to date, that's why I asked.
Maybe its worth starting a thread on here to see if anything new turns up, that is if your list is accessible and it's not much bother to maintain.
The scans could be stored on the ftp.

DH 24 November 2017 16:22

:agree

I'll be on it as soon as I can :)

ptyerman 24 November 2017 16:30

Great, will look through it and see if I have anything to contribute. I bought a job lot of Amiga stuff 3 year ago which included 2 big boxes full of floppy disks, must be a couple thousand of them at least. Still haven't gone through them yet but most are hand written labels, there is some coverdisks though and even if they have been used and erased the labels are still on them.

DH 24 November 2017 23:03

Going to take a while, as my list appears outdated on the PC, whereas the one that I used, on google docs, has since been deleted since CiA disappeared.

I am on it though, starting from scratch :crazy

alexh 25 November 2017 08:55

I scanned all these disks in high resolution for AMR years ago

DH 25 November 2017 16:21

Hello alexh <DH waves>

You still got them, or has codetapper/Galaxy? I've been revamping what I have, but to do this properly I need big scans not tiny scans, also I have remade all subscriber disks & labels too, just as accurate as the ones above.

alexh 25 November 2017 17:36

I'll have a look. I've still got all the disks but they are now in the attic

Sorry for such a delay in my reply, my wife has been taken into the emergency hospital, so I'm kinda backwards and forwards, work, and generally taking over from her right now.

Anyway, that's great alexh :great btw, where's the stuff? :D

alexh 27 November 2017 14:46

That was an autocorrection thing. It was suppose to read "attic"

DH 27 November 2017 15:01

So alexh, you offering to re-scan them all again?

Would be great to get them all again and uploaded to the fileserver :)

alexh 27 November 2017 15:03

Turns out I didn't scan "my coverdisks" from the Attic. Instead I bought some from eBay in 2008 specifically for HOL and scanned then in HD on the photocopier at work.

I didn't provide scans of disks 2, 7 & 9 because they were not for sale.

http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=37684

So the images on HOL at the moment are my scans (albeit scaled down by HOL team)

I no longer have the scans easily accessible.
