So that we don't lose anything, anyone in the UK adept with disks want to take on the damaged ones to try and see if they have better luck (and time) to try and extract them?

Any interested parties, let me know in this thread, and once i've gone through the entirety of whats been sent, I'm happy to send on the damaged ones.

After disks are imaged/attempted, you can do what you like with them.
Phil, i'm the most used to disk cleaning, so count me in. I have cleaned and salvaged tons of disks until now for Amiga, ST, and CPC.

Thanks for making this old stuff public and creating the images, always fun to check what's on these disks.

Ok, so that means actually custom disk format used by the copy hardware ?

Well if i consider my own set of consoles disk dumps, yes. either files saved in PC format, or either games written per track with no directory visible.

(PS : there is no interest to dump those disks i have, because all the files are already inside the SNES BBS predate collection.)

The vast majority seem fine, i'm having way more successes than failures.

Trying to get to all the older stuff because thats the stuff thats likely to be missing.

Part 06 in the zone

Theres not going to be many more interesting uploads from this part of the collection, as I suspect there is a horrific amount of Quarterbacked disks to image, which are very numerous, and have to hope they are OK, as if one disk in any Quarterbacked set is fucked, then I'm assuming all the disks from that set are useless.

We shall see!

Also, I have to slag off Subzero a second.

Sure, I know he was an original supplier to Skid Row, Vision Factory and a few others, but theres a limit to originals you should have.

I'm talking about Subzero actually OWNING originals of Last Action Hero and Cliffhanger!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just don't know what to say, i'll have a sit down and quietly contemplate my life!

Why Galahad you speak of "this part of the collection" ?

There's other stuff you must still receive ?

first, the last disk of a Quaterback set will always have errors, as it will not completely be written to it by the backup software

second, if there is an error on a Quaterback set, Quaterback will restore the incomplete file and then continue with the next one

that said, why do you image Quaterback disks and not simply restore them?

also, please give the disks (all of them) to someone who has experience and knows how to image disks, someone who wont be resistant against tipps which programs have the best chance to recover the data.

thank you.

Hi mate,

I am actually browsing through each disk which you have salvaged and there are many rare modules (unfortunately not all with author names). I managed to find a disks full of tunes from an old contact of mine (Wave/The Electric touch) so it was a bit of nostalgia really.

Thank a lot for the tremendous work and I can't wait to get the next packages.

Sub0: so many sidmon tunes, this is like a dream.

Real mixture of stuff.

I think someone needs to give Crown/Cryptoburners a shout, could well be unreleased modules in this lot so far.

I suspected there would be a lot of new stuff.

I can't remember them all, but there are some modules on some of the comp disks as well, so you might want to check them out

resistant reason: ...as said in earlier msg, Galahad is the ONLY person who gets this stuff from me, he is FIRST one to check out, as there could be unreleased games , sources etc. included, which shouldnt be public directly... not before me has taken a look at... then we will see... so giving Phill tips and hints might be nice of you all, but iam sure he is clever enuff to get that all done, without 20 people getting on his nerves, we (phill and myself) do have all the time of the World to get through this collection from me... which includes around 3500disks! without them harddisks... and i just sent about 200 or so at the moment, so no need to hassle anything, comes time, comes software, that simple!. stay tuned or stay away. its all up to Phill anyways...

Ref your query about that disk, it simply says "Song-Disk NR7 Modules" which is printed by printer not by hand.

I used disksalv just in case there was any deleted files, and there was nothing.

So unless Subzero can remember, its unknown
