Acorn Archimedes Software Preservation

I am sure I am not the only one that has noticed that the Acorn Archimedes software seems to be disappearing very fast with very few attempts to stop this happening, so the purpose of this thread is to find people with original copies of Archimedes software so that images can be sent to SoftPres for IPS archiving and also to compile a list of sucessful Hard Drive installations.

I can start by giving a list of old commercial games that I know of that can be run from HD(with and without modification), and which I have tested and can confirm working on an A3010.

2067BC
Aggressor
Air Supremacy
Alerion
Alien Invasion
Aliped
All-In-Boxing
Apolcalypse
Asylum
Big Bang
Blitz
Bobby Blockhead versus The Dark Planet
Break 147 & Superpool
Bug Hunter In Space
Bughunter/Moondash
Cannon Fodder
Spheres of Chaos
Chuck Rock
Conqueror
Cycloids
Dragon Ball
E-Type
Fervour
Fireball 2
Fish
Guile
Hamsters
Hero Quest
Holed Out
Iron Lord
Ixion
James Pond
Jet Fighter
Lemmings
Oh No More Lemmings
Lemmings the tribes
Mad Professor Mariarti
Manchester United Europe
Mr Doo
Neubulus
OdBall
Pacmania
Pipemania
Poizone
Populous
Quest for Gold
Sim City
Speedball 2
SWIV
Talisman
Terramex
TopBanana
Twinworlds
Zool (requires a code wheel, which is the same as the amiga one)

I am adding to this list as I go, as still digging more old software out of the loft.

The reason for coming to an Amiga forum with this is the apparent lack of software preservation.

In fact, I had not heard of SoftPres at all until I started browsing here.

If anyone from SoftPres is on this board it would be interesting to know what you have had sent to you so far.

So, it begins.........Hope there are some other Acorn users here!!
