poing complete and maniac ball full version

i'm looking for all 7 (or 8?) parts of poing (horizontal breakout clone).
zone does not contain all parts and most of them are not bootable.
and i'm also looking registered version of maniac ball (public domain).
in zone i only find shareware version (only demo levels playable).
does anyone have any of these? thanks in advance!

I was -pretty sure- original Poing consists of only 4 games. Perhaps there were more "hacks" or fanmade levels, as the game came with a level editor. Not sure though.

Created floppy bootable for A500/A600/A1200 with Menu to start POING 2-3-4-5-6.

I do not have Poing 1 and 7, 8 do not know if it exists (you can add it to the compilation)

"Poing 7" is on Aminet: Poing 7

Also, in this thread: Looking for Poing 6 ADF, Arnie made an .ADF of it:

Added to the compilation Poing 1 and 7, now all versions are included.
In compilation on a floppy bootable does not include additional levels, Poing 2-6 have problem to starting with A 500/600 works well with A1200/A4000

The only difference is the keyfile, that was given away for free on the Diamond Productions website many years ago. The page can still be seen on Arc.org:

https://web.archive.org/web/20010408...ga/mball1.html

But the keyfile is no longer available there, so here it is:

ManiacBall_Keyfile.lha

The extra levels can be found on Aminet along with the game:

You can start all levels with Poing7 except poing4.levels (can be started with Poing4).
