You're giving them a get out clause they will never be able to use. System 3 didn't have the skills to do their own custom MFM format, all of their games were externally developed except Tusker, and that wasn't their disk format on that either.

Its all irrelevant, System 3 is not releasing this game on floppy for Amiga owners, I have little to no hope it will be released as a digital download ( the most sensible and cost effective way of releasing it ) for Amiga owners, the time to release it was 1994 when Amiga was still relevant.

If it was available for download, either myself or Stingray would be knocked up to crack it for release, its 'sales' would be pathetic.
