I'm almost certain the answer to this is "yes", but anyway: does your collection contain a fully working version of Turrican? All versions I've found fail somewhere in the later levels - even the Factor 5 one (distributed on their website) does not work.

And my original disk is borked so I can't image it anymore

As far as I'm aware; yes

...but haven't personally tested to completion.

The disk I use is the same one as GameBase Amiga: Turrican (1990)(Rainbow Arts)[cr TRSI][t +4 ACU].zip

Thanks, I'll go check that one out!
Edit: on a side note, that collection of yours is mighty impressive - 2200 games with artwork and everything. Must have taken ages!

Well it's actually 2760 games now

...but yes; I started this back in 2005 so it's taken many, many years of hard work i.e. find / test the best disks / sets, install .HDF games, create configuration files, take title / screenshots, format text files for cheats / hints / level codes / manuals / maps / walkthroughs etc.

Ahh i see, yeah that is pretty cool to have Malko do that.
It's like paying homage to the excellent collection.

DamienD thank you so much for sharing this with us all.
I've been playing with the collection for a couple of days now and WOW, its fantastic.

Got it loaded on a little external HDD and a USB I leave in the car so i can play amiga games anywhere I can get on a PC.

Your tips in the thread and PM were very useful and I cannot recommend this collection enough.

Fantastic stuff. Really love the effort you've obviously put into it and can only hope you keep up the great work that is well appreciated.

Hi team,
I made little update for this collection:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_J...5tqLlZcAka8EpW
Inside is 28 demos on various coverdisks, some games are on single disks, on some disks there are more games. I try to collect different demos that somehow are different from final versions. Some demos got different levels made specialy for different magazines, some got different stuff that were cut from final versions.
I have some more demos but I do not know how to cut them from cd32 disks or run them from wb as stand alone.

Thanks Gzegzolka, I'll take a look when I get some time

...I know that you mentioned this before in the following posts and also a PM to me, which I haven't forgotten about: Just been busy

Hmmm, noticed that the set I used for F-29 Retaliator i.e. the PNA crack, must have been a pre-release going off the title screen:



The retail version has the following:



So disks changed... please just do the following:
  • Delete the directory "C:\WinUAE\Games\F-29 Retaliator".
  • Download the attached archive.
  • Extract into "C:\WinUAE".

It's ok though isn't it? Not horrendous and gives you the idea of the game, which is the point really.



There's jumping, swinging the weapon and an enemy...

Of course it's not going to win the coveted "Game Screenshot of the Year" award but

I mean, don't forget that I was taking 2300 title / screenshots in about a 1.5 month period (after Toni implemented the "boxart" feature, see here, but shame all my hosted images were lost) so didn't really have time to play / find the best possible situations / moments to capture

...this is why when I scroll through the complete game list every now and then; which takes ages as I'm sure you know; and notice something that could be improved upon, then I do it
