Hole-In-One disk 3? I remember the Out of this World, but don't remember Alphabet or Holidays--the version I had had the main one, and the 2nd disk which was Intermediate and menagerie, yes, but we also had Out of this World on one of the two disks . . . I'm pretty sure. Oh well, don't have it in front of me to check. I'd LOVE to have that one. Tried to play the first two disks which I found online, but got errors, documented here: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=18489

I would also love the rare educational games you found (I'm going into teaching--educational games are fascinating to me). I just joined in the last few days, so I missed all the uploads before. Is it OK to ask for them to be uploaded again?

(Is Block It! the game where you and an opponent, either human or computer, have to take blocks of different colors, with different pictures on them, each with different colors on them, and drop them into different columns? In the game I'm thinking of, you got more points to your score the more your block matched the blocks around it--if you were surrounded by ones who had the same pictures on them which were in the same color which had the same background color, you got more points than if only one or two things matched--and you basically didn't get hardly any points at all for nothing matching around it. I cannot truly remember the name of this game, but it had something to do with blocks.)

Happy

Hey Doranwen, welcome to the Treasure Room
This reminds me a lot of this being overdue to get a rework!!
Will do this RIGHT NOW.

Many of those disks are now in TOSEC meanwhile, so you can get most of them elsewhere. If not -- just ask!

No prob, it's in the zone again for you.

The educational titles OK, but please do not ask for all of the over 30 releases at once, thanks

Thanks to HOL, you will never be supposed to play guessing games, but just look up the stuff instead!

Thanks! And thanks for the upload--I'll try it once I can get the game to WORK. This link is to my documented record of what I got when I tried the main disk and the Intermediate/Menagerie one together.

Oh, sorry, I didn't mean that, lol! (Yikes! That would definitely be too much for everyone, lol.) But bit by bit. For instance, the 4-In-One, Easy But Fun title sounds interesting. I didn't find it on HOL, but maybe I looked it up the wrong way? Other than that, I'll have to just browse around and look. The one downside to HOL is its lack of reviews and descriptions--just screenshots, which wouldn't show in Firefox (which, imho, is a far better browser than IE). I have to open the pages in IE to get them to show.

Lol, I forgot about that one. Unfortunately, that was not the game. I still haven't seen anything like it anywhere. I think I'll have to BEG my parents to dig out the Amiga from it's temporary tomb in the messy garage and see if I can get it to load and get a name for it. Because I can't remember, and nothing seems to bring it back.

HOL is also missing some. What about the board game Sorry? That was in the compilation of games I had on that one disk, yet it is unlisted. But I digress from the purpose of this thread.

Thank you again for the upload!

The HOL works fine in Firefox (and most other browsers, even Amiga ones). Which Extensions do you installed?

A lot--I love having better functionality. The only ones relating to images, however, are the Image Zoom and Image Toolbar ones. HOL is the only site that has given me problems like that with pics. Anyhew, it's just an annoyance, that's all. I'd better stop discussing it though, or I fear being accused of hijacking the thread, lol.

The HOL uses DHTML image popups as default, you can change to standard popups in the options, maybe those work better for you.

You did, and I must admit this is MY fault.
It's "Easy and Fun". Typo corrected - thank you!

Here ya go again: http://hol.abime.net/3438

For TOSEC sites like PlanetEmu, consider this: educational games have their own data file, you are probably not supposed to find them in "adf games"!

Cool, thanks! You never know when edutainment will be useful . . . As a prospective teacher, I'm collecting anything and everything that could be remotely useful in the future. Who knows? I might just get an Amiga for the classroom, lol.
And if anyone's played Hole-In-One successfully, please visit http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=18489 and see if you can help. I really want to play it again--it's been a couple years since the Amiga was out, and I miss those games.

Thanks again for the uploads! The only rare game I have right now is Discovery Spell . . . but if that's useful, let me know.

Title: Super Cars II
Copyright: (c) 1991 Gremlin
Cracked by: SKID ROW (Disk 2 of 3 only)
Hacked by: Punishers [PNS]
Trained by: Punishers [PNS] (+40)
TOSEC: NO
Comment / Instructions:
Preload with Punishers disk 1 (of 3) and select your trainer options. Quit menu as described, then wait for the menu to reappear. You will now be prompted to insert SKID ROW cracked DISK 1 (of 2), prepared for the megatrainer by Punishers (disk can't work standalone unlike the "normal" SKR version nor can you use "normal" Disk 1 from SKID ROW).
Use TOSEC SKID ROW cracked disk 2 (of 2) as Disk 2 later in the game.
As you know I've also now found this on a cd and you'll find there is a lot less messing around if you use the original disk/ipf

Simply load the trainer, put IPF disk 1 in df0: and let it be

Point taken. However, my solution does not require proprietary software to run.
If the user lacks a physical original disk of the game, my solution will (currently) be the only possible way out to use the trainer disk on a REAL Amiga.

Just checked randomly, but it seems, even if you uploaded these disks from your thread to the zone years ago, they never made it into Tosec. How come? Isn't [idoru] leeching from the zone? hehehe
