willy beamish 100% adf set?

i noticed a thread or two from a while back stating that this game had problems with d5 and d9 but i'm not sure if there has ever been any non corrupt release for this game.
i have various adf's from tosec and also gamebase 1.6 and almost all the files are showing a different crc but i don't know which versions are 100% completable without freezing or graphical glitches.
i've mainly been comparing crc values for D5 and D9 because from my understanding those are the two disks with problems.
has anyone got a verified 100% completable version of this game that they could share or post the crc values for the good disks so i can make sure to get the right set?
any help would be great guys the game looks crazy and fun.

I've got the original, though it's not here with me right now. If you can't find a version bump the thread and I'll dig it out

I'd be surprised if the version on whdownload wasn't 100%. This game really is best played on a PC with an MT-32 or MUNT though.

WHDLoad version is fine. Not sure on playing the PC version, much rather the Amiga version.

The ports of the VGA Sierra games are rubbish. Too slow, less colours, worse music. There's really no good reason to play them.

i would still like to obtain a full 100% working adf set if possible. i cant be sure that any of the versions i already have are 100% good.
i have other version sof the game, sega cd and so on but i've been in a major amiga mood lately and would like to play it through on the amiga.

Surely this versions is fully functional?

Anyone with a full tosec set should have it.

i have the ipf version already thinking about it and i guess that would be the best version to play
i still wouldn't mind an 100% adf version though just for collection purposes.

Is it even protected in some way? I remember having a backup copy on floppies... if it isn't, you can just make an ADF copy yourself if you really want one

is there an easy way to convert the ipf files to adf files. i know it can be done with winuae somehow but i'm a bit of a noob with amiga programs. playing games i can do fine but have no clue with amiga tools.

Load up xcopy, put your IPF in DF0 put a blank ADF in DF1 hit start repeat for each disk.

@ Ian - the xcopy thing sounds easy enough cheers for the info
@ BarryB - i only use winuae or winuaex for amiga gaming at the moment so creating real disks would be a waste of effort. i'm thinking of getting some amiga hardware and one of those sd card floppy drive emulators in the future though.

meanwhile i decided to start another game while waiting for the willy beamish problem to be sorted and i have stumbled upod potential problems with maddog williams. i will start an all new thread about it now. cheers for the help though guys.

thanks BarryB for converting the ipfs to adfs. i was going to look at running that xcopy program later but you saved me the trouble.
that xopy looks kinda familiar, i used to have an amiga 500 back in the day weth an action replay 2.0 cartridge with switches on it and i remember that xcopy program
being the amiga noob that i was and still am i treid to copy a friends game with xcopy and it failed. didn't have a clue that it was probably heavily protected or something, i can't remember what game it was anymore lol.

The zoned file is either unknown (to winrar) or damaged.

It works fine. You need WinRAR 5 though for the newer RAR5 format.

Edit: Standard RAR archive uploaded. Check again.
