Amiga Format Cover Disk 72b Virocop

Does anyone have an image of this disk? If so, could you please put it in the zone? It doesn't seem to be readily available online :-/

Thanks

Paul

Check the EAB file server (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633), folder 'Commodore_Amiga/Collection/Coverdisk/Amiga Format' (Amiga Format #072b [Ext].7z).

Thanks for that. Now I've just got to figure out how to get a 2MB ADF file onto a floppy... Or is this image not the exact one that comes from the original cover disk?

Hi Paul,

Can you mount the image in WinUAE, then click on the disk's icon to select it and then choose 'Information' from the Workbench 'Icon' menu?

What capacity is reported for the disk?

I'm wondering if it's a 'DiskSpare'-formatted disk (960K, IIRC). If it is, it will first of all need converting to a DiskSpare .ADF image and then be written to disk in a real Amiga.

It seems it's a copy protected demo rather than just a standard ADF disk image so you can't write it back to a floppy without specialist hardware... Looks like I'm on the lookout for an original AF cover disk then....

Thanks anyway

Paul
