So investigation of my "Non-TOSEC" files is as follows:

... [Amiga ADF] La Storia Ancestrale - Capitolo 1-2-3-4 [ITA].rar --> the one linked to on HOL is only 1 disk while this is 4 disks.
... AtrophyDemo.zip --> can't get to boot; more investigation needed.
... Baldies.zip --> crashes with a software failure / guru meditation when booting; more investigation needed.
... Daylight Robbery.zip --> is a compilation disk and contains the following:



... Duncan (preview).zip --> comes up with the following; more investigation needed:



... Infection.zip --> is the real deal:





... Limbo of the Lost - Demo.rar --> Hard Drive files; need to copy to a WB 3.1 .hdf and try again.
... Ragnov.zip --> same file as available at AGTW: http://www.abime.net/games/view/game/id/5571

BTW; if anyone wants to play around with the "Non-TOSEC" files I've mentioned in post #23, they are already uploaded to the EAB file server under:

~Uploads\DamienD\NON-TOSEC [20-02-2016]

The trouble with the Dream17 entry is that the "screenshot" has been scanned from a magazine preview, which might have been ripped off from EAGER:

http://web.archive.org/web/201102060...A/F/FINOV.html

The only person it seems who would have a demo of the game, if one actually exists, is the coder Alan Carter. He posted about his experience with Team17 in another EAB thread, and then - just as he did prior to the game's planned release back in '95 - did a disappearing act when asked about a demo. Bloody crying shame, I tell ya!

Hey Prof Bong, I was the one who originally pointed out the "dodgy" HOL entry in the first place... Where's my thanks?!?

<joking>

@DamienD
It was a communal "thanks", I just couldn't be bothered doing a multi-quote jobbie on that one! Anyway, I gathered you'd already found the correct d/l link and TOSEC-ised the crap out of the name!! I know you so well!!!

Has anyone tried out the Atrophy demo as yet?





...must say it's pretty cool and a real shame that this was never finished / released

Gave this a try by installing to a .HDF. It's a little fidgety as you need to also run the "font-install" script to copy a certain font to your "Fonts" directory otherwise the game won't work properly.

So I played around and made an .ADF out of this with everything taken care of. Unfortunately though you need to use the following configuration (due to files being extracted to RAM and taking into account the 2MB that the game needs):

... AGA configuration with "2MB Chip & 4MB Fast RAM"

Also what I've found is that due to the game running in a "interlaced EHB resolution"; when using a "KS ROM v3.0 (A1200) rev 39.106 (512k).rom" or "KS ROM v3.1 (A1200) rev 40.68 (512k).rom" the text on the first screen is a bit jerky. If instead you use any of the "KS 2.x" roms then all is good; so the optimal "WinUAE" configuration is as follows, which I know is strange:

... AGA configuration with "2MB Chip & 4MB Fast RAM" with a "KS ROM v2.0x" rom

Anyway; this .ADF is really just for people to quickly have look at this [unreleased] game without installing. I get it's a bit messy

.ADF in The Zone!

The 4 Discs (chapters) are all bootable and you can individually start, La Storia Ancestrale It was distributed as a free attachment to the magazine PC Play Magazine, the Amiga version I do not remember if it was ever distributed.

Adventure games AMiGA Italian (sold at newsagent) catered have with many other chapters, attach videos of those who remember:

L'Uomo Ragno (Spider-Man) (3 Chapters)
[ Show youtube player ]

Diabolik (12 Chapters)
[ Show youtube player ]

Dylan Dog (17 Chapters)
[ Show youtube player ]

Time Runners (27 Chapters)
[ Show youtube player ]

Tex (13 Chapters)

[ Show youtube player ]

There's actually 30 Time Runners chapters but we're still missing Tex 7,8 & 9, Dylan Dog 14 and Diabolik 12.

I'm assuming they were released seeing as we have the other chapters that came after them, although I've not seen any proof Diabolik 12 was released on the Amiga (although I'd be surprised if it wasn't).
