Sadly I don`t have the hardware anymore.
So I`d be relying on someone if he`s willing to send out.
Yes he has the full three disk game
Thanks DD. I`ll cover any costs ..
Oh and where do I post the Q&A I did with him ?

You could post in this thread I guess or maybe create a new one under the Amiga scene section

Best case scenario would be for some trusted Canadian EAB member, preferable close by to Steve in Ontario, who has the required hardware in order to image these disks properly, and have the disks sent to him / her.
Firstly, great work and persistence Stainy!

As for dumping the disks, I wonder if clenched in the U.S. is a possibility? He's very trustworthy and meticulous in all things Amiga that I've observed from him. I guess it's a matter of whether he's willing and whether he has a Kryoflux/SuperCardPro or a suitable Amiga set-up for Kryoflux Free (I know he has real A500s) to dump the disks.

Akira would normally be another option in the U.S., but he's been MIA from EAB for over 18 months now. Consequently, he might not be a real option if it needs to be done in a reasonable timeframe.

You know I was going to suggest clenched last night but carried away with other threads / posts

Also, just a guess but I'd imagine there's probably no weird disk formats used on these disks so they can probably be imaged with standard disk --> ADF tools.

Got a reply.
He has one copy of the game and is obviously hesitant of sending it out in case it gets lost of destroyed He`s confirmed the game is complete and four disks and there`s a manual ( although that`s at his parents place )
I`ll see what I can do..

Off the top of my head, there are a couple of obvious EAB regulars:

- kipper2k is in the Thunder Bay district in northwestern Ontario.

- klx300r is in Ontario's capital, Toronto.

Great1 thank you. Once I know which way Steve wants to go I might reach out to either of those.

Ok.. so he`s in S. California, not Canada. That might make it easier.
Also he said there`s no copy protection in the game but it might have manual copy protection. Steve said that shouldn`t be a problem as he can get his parents to mail him the manual. He said there`s a Amiga group a couple of hours away he might check out.

I think even in the demo version there are numerous questions that you need to answer; if you get one wrong you start the game with limited heath / attributes.

Steve is still trying to get the disks imaged.
He asked his brother to check on other sets of disks at his parents house and no luck. So he is ( understandably ) a bit reluctant on sending his only set out.
I did find out that his Amiga and development stuff is still together ( again, at his parents place ) and he doesn`t trust his parents on sending it to him heheh .. I wouldn`t either to be honest. But some good news.
The manual is on the way to him, he will scan it for me and send that..

A bit more info. He`s getting his development A1200 posted up to him. Then take it to someone close ( ish ) to get it recapped and possibly get the disks imaged

@stainy; I'm most certain that you've done this already, but please thank Steve for his generosity and time in order to make this reality; from the whole Amiga community

You should even point him to EAB / this thread. Would be cool if he joined up
