Need help finding a few games

I'm finishing to put together my romset and there are a few games that I can't find anywhere, I know some were uploaded to the zone in the past judging from past posts, but can't find them there now. All games on the list have screenshots on HOL so I have hope there are disk dumps available. I have them organized by genres as in HOL. Any help in finding these would be greatly appreciated. It's a rather large list, but I'm trying to get a complete as possible list of games, and this is pretty much what I'm missing now.

-- Action Strategy
Tracker (Cracked Version) (http://hol.abime.net/1489)

-- Educational
Junior Typist (http://hol.abime.net/3850)

-- Games
Strip Poker II+ Data Disk #3: Suzanne & Bianca (http://hol.abime.net/3734)
Technology (Standalone version) (http://hol.abime.net/4367)

-- Multi-Type

-- None
Quiz Master (ACS) (http://hol.abime.net/3725)

-- Puzzler
Cubit (http://hol.abime.net/3141)
Femme Fatale Version 3.0 (http://hol.abime.net/5731)
Push It II (Included in Fun Games compilation) (http://hol.abime.net/3884)

-- Reaction & Navigation
Block-Buster (Bundled with Easy AMOS, need a standalone version) (http://hol.abime.net/5826)

-- Unknown
Magic Bag (http://hol.abime.net/4723)

-- Foreign
Lysis (http://hol.abime.net/4922)
Slidercrash (http://hol.abime.net/3514)

-- Compilation
Fun Games (http://hol.abime.net/3883)

-- Non-Commercial
Colourmania (not the demo version)
Jelly Quest (FULL version, not the PD demo)
Motorola Invaders 1 (Does this even exist?)
Sim Brick (http://hol.abime.net/5854)

-- Licenceware

AMRVoxel never got past the "technology-demo" stage, but that's available here:
http://www.blackfiveservices.co.uk/amrvoxel.shtml
I came across the source for this (and some other old projects) recently, so I'll release that at some point in case anyone finds it interesting.

Good man. More people should do the same.

Thanks for the help guys, getting closer. Updated my list above also managed to find a few others meanwhile.

s2325 : Do you know if there's a standalone release of Don Manolo? Because I can't manage to make that disk autoboot into Don Manolo.

mai : It's been a few years since I last used an anti-virus for the amiga, not even sure which one I should use. Does any of the classicWB setups have an anti-virus installed? Or maybe a good soul could help me out here
About D.U.N.E., do you have it? If so could you please upload it into the zone? Would be a bit silly for me to download a pack with almost 2GB for a single game.

No, I found these games only on compilations. They should be single file.

Talmino 2 is on 'Talmino 2 and Skat V.2.0 (1998)(Logistic Dreams).adf' in 'Commodore_Amiga/Game/Disk' on the file server. There should be a few more in that folder, will have a look and post the results when I find some more.

Backgammon (Kingsize) -> Commodore_Amiga/Game/Disk/Amiga_Games_Disk_Library_Vol1/K

Thanks again, you've been a great help list is getting shorter . I actually found some of those yesterday like the Fun School Specials (they aren't called Fun School on TOSEC that's why I wasn't finding them) and also managed to find Talmino 2 on EAB Server the others I didn't have yet. Will test everything and update my list later today.

s2325 : Yeah, it's strange, but if I run it directly from startup-sequence the text on the main menu disappears. I need to have a better look at this and see if I can fix it.

TCD : Thanks appreciate it, finding stuff on EAB server can be challenging I'll go through that folder myself as well.

mai : Thanks for the tip, I'll try that. I'm always very cautious when it comes to virus, makes sense that installing a new bootblock will clear that virus didn't know that would be all it takes.

You're welcome

With FileZilla you can search on the FTP server btw.

TCD : I know, but it's kinda slow would be nice if there was a full text list with the whole ftp contents though would make search much faster.
Btw do you know if the SPS dump of Takado was ever released? http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43899

mai : That DUNE disk you uploaded has crc errors so the game isn't playable :/ I suppose you don't know any other dump of it?
About the virus, I tried your suggestion and even though it removed the virus the game doesn't boot, after the title screen it hangs on a black screen forever. Same thing on Mindbreaker.

Found a few more games and updated the list on the first post.

I cant see any checksum error, for me the disk seems to be ok.

Thanks jujasi, will try those tonight. The Amazed adf you upload seems to be the one with the virus though.

mai : Did you try running DUNE? I get a checksum error when trying to start the game.
About Amazed, yeah probably does, but I don't really like having stuff with virus around so would prefer to get a clean copy of it. After virus removal it doesn't work though, unless the game needs a very specific config to run.

plugh83 : I tested chessmate and it seemed to work with and without the extras disk on df1. But the game always crashes when I perform a castling move. Do you know if the game requires the extras disk of a specific WB version? I'm asking because I noticed that on the startup-sequence script the volume for the extras is refered as extras: while my WB3.1 extras disk is called Extras3.1:, I renamed it to Extras: but got me wondering that it might be expecting some other version.

That's strange. The first time I loaded chessmate it requested the extras disk so since then I just assumed it always needed it. I used extras 1.2. However on loading chessmate again just now it works OK without the extras disk. I haven't had any problems when castling but any attempt to enter an illegal move causes it to crash. I've also put the German version of chessmate (Grossmeister) in The Zone. This doesn't crash (on my system at least) but does need a code word to start.

jujasi : Unfortunately amazed and mindbreaker are the same versions with virus and mind force is the pre-release version and not the final one. I'll keep on searching then, thanks.

plugh83 : Maybe it only requires it for the first time and some info is written on the actual disk? That would explain it. Thanks for Grossmeister I grabbed that one as well.

Edited first post.
