I've got Dragon Tiles : The Tournament. Also I think I've got Emerald Mine 3 Pro (incidently, there is also a CAPS image of it.)

Well, actually there's a number of CAPS releases that have no corresponding adf, so I'm essentially looking for 'copyable' disk images. I collect CAPS releases, as well, mind you. They are just in a different shoe box.

Now, when did you say you were going to post these games to the Zone?!

Emerald Mine 3 will require to be CRACKED, as it's protected.
I too have the original and was not able to transfer the disk because of errors.
The disk itself boots fine and is OK, though.

@Twistin'Ghost Dragon Tiles is in the Zone. If the dms is not good then I can create an adf.

Three versions:
[1] extended adf - rawread ORIGINAL - UAE only!
[2] standard adf - original, done by copying the extended adf over to the standard adf using NIBBLE mode in XCopy 5
[3] standard adf - "cracked".

Mind those quotes. As the "copy protection" is just a raw track on cyl 00, side 1, I could simply copy the contents of the original image to RAM: (for safety/synchronization reasons), then back to a fresh disk image.
[3] is the only image possible to transfer to real disk.

Still need these two? I found Discovery Spell, as I knew it by, somewhere on the web, though I would have to do some exploring to find it again (search turns up nothing). It was labeled as DISCOSCI.ZIP, which appears to (incorrectly) title it as Discovery Science--I thought that was it till the usual word difficulty choice screen popped up and I was happy. Should I upload the copy I have to the zone? It seems to work well--I went through the first game perfectly, no problems (great memories).

As for Uncle D's Con-Sound-Tration, I have that somewhere at home (not sure if it's original or just a copy of some sort), though I have never transferred anything from Amiga to PC, and probably lack the necessary cord/s (if it costs money, I might not be able to). If need be, I'll try to figure out the transferring to get it up--that one was LOTS of fun for us to play.

Also noticed Winter Challenge on your Found list--that one interests me, but doesn't look available online (just did some searching and ran into barriers)--can I have it? (I'm kind of new, but it looks like someone could upload it to the zone? . . .)

Good job Andreas. I don't know if Twistin' still watches this thread, but even if he doesn't he probably felt a warm feeling in his stomach the moment you uploaded it.

He does not, I can assure you.

I have buns, but I try to keep wet hot dogs at a respectful distance from them at all times. They are (of course) clearly labelled "Exit Only".

SwitchQuiz

Hi, I have just bought an old Amiga A600 for nostalgic purposes and thought I'd search around the net for old games etc. I then thought about if anyone had any posts about SwitchQuiz ... the game I wrote for Switchsoft when I was a student, I thought it was a bit of fun not realising that it would make national magazines etc.! I came across your post and thought "wow it can't of disappeared then". I have all the original disks, hardware and most of the original magazine reviews etc. tucked away in a cupboard. As an original die hard Amiga fan if you need anything let me know.

Gary.
