Not AFAIK, but they can easily be dumped with Arcimage.

As an unprotected ADF yes, protected discs currently no.

You'll need to either use an Amiga to dump and convert to APD on a PC, or dump on an Arc with ADFFS to JFD.

Does anyone have originals of any of the RTFM games, I'm currently coding to support their protection method and need more examples than just Slappit, to check it works.

An ADF will do initially, I'll then provide some BASIC code to extract the protection sectors once I've analysed it.

RTFM titles I have documented are:
Dominate
Bouncer
Pon
Pon in Winterland
Rekall

I'll continue to update post #509 as games are added to the library. I think we're at around 50 complete or soon to be complete titles.

If anyone has any of the items we're missing, please scan at 300 dpi and send to me: Jon at jaspp dot org dot uk

If you're going to the London RISC OS show this weekend, take a look at the preservation list and bring along any floppies that we're missing for imaging. The Centre for Computing History will be at the show, taking Kryoflux images for preservation purposes.

ANNOUNCEMENT

R-Comp Interactive and the Archimedes Software Preservation Project (JASPP) sign a landmark agreement at the London RISC OS show, granting distribution rights to JASPP for previous commercial titles published by Krisalis and Gremlin Graphics.

Both parties have agreed to collaborate going forward, on the preservation and updating of titles to run on modern machines. Previously unreleased titles will also be looked at and where feasible, revived to continue development.

Titles covered by this agreement will be available through JASPP as soon as possible, and include:

Alone In the Dark
Battle Chess
Cannon Fodder
Champions
Chuck Rock
Fire & Ice
Gods
Heimdall
Hero Quest
Jahangir Khan World Championship Squash
James Pond
Krisalis Collection, The
Lemmings
Lemmings 2: The Tribes
Lotus Turbo Challenge 2
Mad Professor Mariarti

Quest For Gold
Revelation
S.W.I.V.

Sim City

Speedball 2

Commenting on the agreement, RCI's Andrew Rawnsley said - "We're very happy to be working with JASPP on these games, as they clearly have a huge love for the titles, as well as the technical skills needed to do them justice. We look forward to these titles giving RISC OS gamers many more hours of pleasure in the years to come."

Speaking on behalf of JASPP, Jon Abbott remarked - "The titles covered by this agreement are some of the most notable games from the Archimedes era, and JASPP are thankful to RCI for making this agreement possible. The Archimedes Software Preservation Project's aim is to make many more commercial titles available for free, and hope to arrange similar agreements with other rights holders in the future."

Make sure you check the preservation table, so you're not duplicating effort. Also bare in mind any floppy images must come from originals, not copies - including a scan of the floppy disc itself can confirm that.

Where people don't have the ability to image the floppies, don't worry, we're more than happy to receive just scans of the boxes and material.

ADFFS now contains detailed instructions on what/how to scan and how to image floppies using ADFFS on a native Arc. If in doubt, please contact me directly: jon at jaspp dot org dot uk

For those actively imaging floppies, I've added the game ID's to the preservation list, as the !Help is now quite out of date.

Lots of progress has been made archiving titles, although I need some of the collectors on here to help out with the rarer titles.

Please see the preservation list for the current status of any games you own originals of, and contact me if you have any of the missing titles: jon at jaspp dot org dot uk

Currently around 80 titles are complete and 40 are in progress for completion. To put that into perspective, around 25% of all released titles are fully imaged and scanned and we're seeking approval from the publishers / authors to release them as soon as the web site is ready.

As an incentive, I'll pre-release some of the titles we have approval for on here, as soon as I've received some scans/floppy images from people following this thread.

MicroDrive Golf - Archimedes

I am original author of this game in 1990. I upgraded the graphics in 1994 for Risc PC, but this never got to market. If anyone's interested, let me know.
