ROFL

...see how professional it looks, bet you can't spot the difference when compared with your "real" original?

Anyway, thank you kindly again for your efforts

Nah, being from the same country as you my friend, I only really care about PAL games, as that's what I played back in the day

...but I'm sure a lot of NTSC members would appreciate this though

Well, I'm sitting on a handful of unofficial IPFs generated by Denis and Ian and can't distribute them because they've been threatened in the past with ex-communication by the glorious powers-that-be at SPS! Unless something changes in the SPS policy, I don't think I'll be able to share them.

I still have the raw dumps of the games in question, though, so I suppose if someone here is willing to use Keir's IPF generator on them.....then some unofficial IPFs can be shared (and without Denis & Ian getting the death penalty from SPS! ).

@Denis
Here's a photo for tonight's installment of games [letters 'V' + 'W', random games].......it's another dirty dozen!

Nope, Denis keeps missing that one.....so I emailed him again about it earlier tonight. Makes me wonder if there's a problem with Growth like there was with Downhill Challenge. Patience is a virtue!

What about RugbyTheWorldCup_3730 (unknown crc)? I thought Irek upped that to the Zone, but now that I've looked again there's nothing there!

Irek uploaded ct raw dump not SPS archive sadly and looks like he deleted file, don't know why but I still this dump. I really don't know why he don't have IPF. StingRay mentioned Irek as SPS owner

Bone Cruncher from Superior Software wouldn't happen to be among those raw dumps, would it ?
http://hol.abime.net/182

I've been looking for the original for a loooong long time.
Seen it for sale only once and I lost the bleeding auction right before the finish line.
Frustrating, very frustrating to say the least.

Nah, I remember seeing that auction after it had finished. Peter Olafson (ex-Amiga games journalist) was auctioning off his whole Amiga collection at the time and that was one of the few truly rare games that I'd missed bidding on because of a money shortage that year. I wasn't happy considering the modest price it went for and how bloody rare the game is! It's in the same category as Monkey Business for rarity IMHO and we may not see a boxed copy being sold again for several years, if ever.

WindintheWillows_2998 was missing, though. My fault, I forgot to list the games in my post last night with the photo. Can you send WindintheWillows_2998 in email please? Thanks in advance!

Thanks again.

About Bone Cruncher, I had no idea it's that rare.
Just thought it was my typical kind of "luck" or me not looking hard enough, especially considering the BBC and C64 versions pop up all the time.

You're welcome! We've cut the 250 odd missing IPFs down to almost under 100 in less than a fortnight so far, so I'm determined to push ahead without too much delay to see how close we can get to finding them all.

Well, Bone Cruncher was a reasonably early Amiga game release for the UK market and probably poorly marketed by a publisher (Superior Software) that was heavily biased toward the BBC micros and then the Archimedes later on. Even the C64 version isn't all that common (despite perhaps being the best version released), but you can't help but fall over the BBC version on Ebay and elsewhere.

Nah, it's kinda fun in a frustrating sorta way! Many are in packing boxes in the spare room and garage due to not having enough shelf space and having moved a few times in the last dozen years, so I don't get to see some of the gems that I actually do have in the old collection. Taking some photos might actually help me update my games list now (sadly, not updated since 2001! ), and will jog the memory in the future when I have to fetch them out again for whatever reason.

On the flipside, it has been frustrating enough to put some fire in the belly to look into buying more bookshelves. Finally, I might be able to get some of these cool games out of the packing boxes again and clear some space to walk around in the spare room, not to mention shift all the lonely games in the garage into the house and protect them from any dampness they might be exposed to during the winter months.

I have it on my eBay watch list and a few danish auction sites (fat chance though), not giving up.
If it should turn up it'd be a good idea to alert each other so we don't keep outbidding each other.
I'm only interested in dumping and preserving the disk with my KryoFlux.

Yessiree, the C64 version is a cracking game once you figure out what to do.
Gotta love that sid tune.
