Amiga Action Blues Brothers CD

I bought Blues Brothers on ebay, it was on Amiga Action April 95 cover disk but whoever sold it had recorded over it with a PD game. Does anyone know where I can a copy of this .adf from?

According to this you need Disk 4?

I'm sure I have this somewhere... I'm not even sure if it works! If you're not in a rush, I can try and look for it. If I recall though, you can't make an ADF as it is copy protected?

I forgot about that feature, I assumed, having the label on the disk the software would detect it and be happy to be home. I have the cracked .adf which I will copy over.

I found it! It is a .raw file as suspected. It has copy protection that you need the Magazine for I think lol so without it you can't play it?

Cracked ADF is probably the best way forward (though not authentic lol)

@Codetapper @mr.vince @Retroplay @dlfrsilver
is there anyway to make this work as ADF eg extended ADF? I've tried to convert it to .SCP using HxC to write back onto disk but it doesn't work. X-copy doesn't copy the disk despite showing all green (after 8 and 1).

Is that the same format? Or alternative eg IPF/SCP?

How can I convert it to a stream format to write with Greaseweazle?

Not difficult to find, too me all of 5 seconds:

... /TOSEC/Games/SPS/Blues Brothers, The (1991)(Titus)[3081].zip
... /TOSEC/Games/SPS/Blues Brothers, The (1991)(Titus)[a][3082].zip

Here is the "search" function URL for the "Amiga File Server", it's in the thread I already linked to: http://grandis.nu/eabsearch/

It would seem this is not the same as the version I have which is the one that accompanied the Amiga Action Magazine.

Maybe that's how I missed it cos I was looking for Amiga Action. So can this version be copied to the floppy I have and it will run?

You would need a way of writing the protected disks - ADF version thus would not work.

My version works on WinUAE but I haven't managed to convert it to SCP to write using Greaseweazle... hopefully once I get the knowhow and files requested from another thread it may be possible to upload it?

Of course it's not, it's the IPFs of the commercial releases.

There are these also though:

... Amiga Action Coverdisks ADFs, Raw, IPF Format (Working)/Amiga Action Issue 69 April 1995 Disks 1, 2, 3 & 4/Amiga Action Issue 69 April 1995 Disk 4 Blues Brothers.raw
... The Blues brothers (UK) (1991) [Original] (Titus Interactive) (Amiga OCS-ECS 512 kb) (ST track Format).zip
