If you need help uploading, pretty sure I can help if you want.

Thanks for the latest update. I was just looking through Page 1 of this thread (which is less than 1 year ago) and your 'interesting statistics'.

Code:
6.32GB    WinRAR'd 
11.90GB    Extracted
It's come a long way since then !

That's a good point, I should create an update to the original statistics also...

Done, see post #1 for a comparison between the base release and current

Very appreciative you've kept with it & shared with us on a consistent basis despite the early troubles from vermin looking to increase their torrent ratios.

Thanks DamienD for sharing and continuing to update this collection.

I haven't had enough time to go through as much of it as I would like, but it is clear that this is a very carefully assembled and curated collection.

Having something like this available that focuses on a floppy based 'back in the day' feeling without the issues of untested and/or bad cracks, and is carefully assembled with optimal settings on a per game basis is really something quite unique.

The amount of work and care put in is clear based on the sheer amount of games covered, and sharing with others what is clearly a labor of love for the platform is very much appreciated

Hmmm, notice two mistakes that I made with Update Pack #12

NightHawk F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0:

The title screen, HOL, TOSEC, and WHDLoad name this "NightHawk F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0".

...but the Boxscans clearly display "F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter 2.0" and the Discscans have no mention of "Nighthawk" anywhere.

So, I think I'll rename "NightHawk F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0" --> "F-117A NightHawk Stealth Fighter 2.0"


Star Dust Wars:

Somehow I managed not to include the changed configuration file as I wanted to...

Both of the above will be corrected in the next update pack

Going by the order of words on the box, it's NightHawk F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0

Going by the Title screen it's NightHawk F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0

Going by the Disk Scans it's F-117A

Going by Dr. Google majority say F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter 2.0


I remember we had a discussion about another game with word discrepancies from Box Cover vs Title Screen, and we went Title Screen because usually box covers have been known to sometimes make small errors, and Title screens are from the Dev's themselves.

I do think it should stay as NightHawk F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0 Though its entirely up to you.

Here are cut outs from the various boxes:




The manual and WHDLoad splash screen also say "F-117A NightHawk Stealth Fighter 2.0":


...will think about it some more

PS. thanks for all the PMs guys; unfortunately I can't possibly reply to you all but appreciate you taking the time to say thanks / voice your appreciation.

Oh yeah, one thing I forgot to mention... getting Emerald Mine II running from disk was an absolute nightmare

Took me ages to figure out / correct the issues with "Emerald Mine II (1988)(Kingsoft).adf" and also create a clean "Game Disk":



Attached and these should probably be added to TOSEC so will make an entry in the TOSEC Amiga Correction Thread thread.
