Not good news I'm afraid brolly

All I have is the following but I image that you already have these:

1) Battlehawks 1942 D1 & Worldwide Hunting preview.zip
2) Match-It & Magic Bag (1997)(ACS Germany).zip [already in TOSEC - compilations]

Yeah I do, but I might have missed Magic Bag so I'll have another look to double check.
Thanks for looking though.

Technology is available on Bandit Mania, but for the life of me I cannot manage to get it to start into that game directly. Most likely there was never a standalone version of the game, but I'd want to at least be able to jump into the game directly without going through the game selection screen.

I might have found Sim Brick in "Amiga Power #13 (1992)(Future Publishing)(GB)(Disk 1 of 2)[May 1992][Sensible Software Disk Special]", can't test right now, but it seems to be it:

Wonder why I never saw it before ^^

I'm definitely no Amiga whizz but can try to make this disk bootable and go straight into the game...

...not tonight though; I'm too "TOSEC'd" out and need to spend time with the girlie now

If you could give it a try I'd appreciate it, I managed to do it for most games, but this one I simply couldn't get it to work.
Don't recall the exact details, just that it was driving me nuts lol

i just downloaded amiga power issue 13 from the EAB server but i can't get sim brick to work with winuae.
it loads so far and then i get a black screen with the floppy counter stuck flickering on 01.
maybe it's a config issue?

Just tried Sim Brick too , Seems like is protected some how
I guess Amiga power issue 13 disk needs to be Redump with different parameters.

If that's a standalone version then yeah I do, thanks!

I didn't test Sim Brick yet, will give it a try and see what happens. Doesn't sound good though

RE: Sim Brick; if it's protected and a no-go then all we need to do is ask our talented EAB community to assist

It will be very easy for people like Sir Galahad / StingRay / the Flashtro group (with their amazing coding skills) to fix this situation

...probably take them less than 5 mins to correct.

Put the request out there, be patient; one of the above will read this thread in time and in there own time make this situation good

Heya brolly,

Taken a look the at "Bandit Mania" disks from the EAB File Server. Unfortunately they are NDOS so I don't have the skills to see the files inside etc...

Did some investigation; you probably already know this but I'll mention it anyway...

a) Bandit Mania (1994)(Mental Images)(Disk 1 of 2).adf [CRC 1B4797EB] = is actually Disk 2
b) Bandit Mania (1994)(Mental Images)(Disk 1 of 2)[t +4 GIN].adf [CRC 40CE5586] = Disk 1
c) Bandit Mania (1994)(Mental Images)(Disk 2 of 2).adf [CRC 378FAB6F] = is actually Disk 1

If you boot with a) in DF0: after the "Mental Image Software Design" you get this screen and need to insert either b) or c):



If you boot with b) in DF0: after the "Mental Image Software Design" you get this screen:



If you then insert c) into DF1: you get this screen:



If you then eject DF1: and insert a) you get this screen:



So the set you should use is as follows:
... DF0: = b) or c)
... DF1: = a)


The TOSEC guys have already renamed all of the above correctly in the latest DATs

Ah yes, that was most likely my problem as well, didn't recall all the details seems there's no easy way to do it then. Thanks for checking.

I already had the files renamed on my end, thanks for the heads up.
