I remember Relokick being given away on the front cover of a magazine. Possibly CU. Wasn't that illegal, since the disk had to contain an earlier kickstart ROM?

What about that hollywood monsters crap? I can't remember the name of it, but it was a big company behind it. A demo was given away on a coverdisc, but the game was never released as I recall.

You should be looking for info about firstly transferring data between the PC and Amiga, and secondly how to unpack ADF files to floppies. It's all there.

If it's in better shape than a brand new A1200 used in advertising, it must be untouched by human hands!
