Requests - Gnome and Sirius 7 slaves

Hi, if possible could someone make quick and dirty slaves for these games please?

Gnome - http://hol.abime.net/2744

Sirius 7 - http://hol.abime.net/1953

Only adf's exist and neither are amigados.

Thanks

...as there's no .IPF of "Sirius 7" available (unless someone with an original can provide); make sure you use the fixed .ADF as detailed in this thread:

Sirius 7 - another game that needs a *proper* crack...

I totally understand that my friend, hence your request

...I possibly should have worded my response better; let's try again:

In the absence of an .IPF for "Sirius 7" (unless someone with an original can provide); whoever puts together this WHDLoad version should make sure that they use the fixed .ADF for the source, as detailed in this thread:

Sirius 7 - another game that needs a *proper* crack...

Here's a link to what looks to be the original release of the game on the FTP server:

This is a very rare game (I haven't seen or heard of anyone with an original copy in my 25 odd years of collecting Amiga games! ), and Bert's policy is usually to support original releases of games first and foremost for official WHD patches.

Regarding "Sirius 7"... I totally get that my friend!

But it's clearly extremely rare indeed; though quite surprised that you don't have it; oh uber collector, master

...so, when there is no original available then surely adjustments need to be made if a WHDLoad version is to ever exist (and has been done in the past from what I can see)?

I'm using resload_Relocate to relocate the executable. AFAIR this is not yet (fully) supported in CD32Load.

All the games released by Actual Screenshots are reasonably rare. The only one I don't have in my collection is Sirius 7. Given that the game only received one review (24% overall in Amiga Format) and all three original versions possessed by LSD for their crack were bugged with corrupted gfx on level 4, I have to wonder if the game actually received a retail release at all. It wasn't uncommon for crackers to get their hands on pre-release copies (sometimes from "contacts" at mags who had original disks sent to them for review). Moreover, the game was supposedly released at the end of 1990 when CRL (parent company of Actual Screenshots) went out of business. It would have been the last game published by Actual Screenshots/CRL before going out of business.

As I said, I've never ever seen so much as an original disk (scan) of Sirius 7 and I know that it isn't/wasn't in the possession of the big Amiga game collectors I know. Peter Olafson (ex-Amiga games reviewer), the biggest Ami games collector I know of, sold off his massive collection of 4000+ Amiga games a few years ago on Ebay and Sirius 7 wasn't amongst them. Still, stranger things have been known to happen - like an original boxed copy of Monkey Business (the first ever Amiga game published) popping up on Ebay last year - so there is still hope for an original copy of Sirius 7 materialising out of the ether!
