Yes, we are in need of a fresh dump. But seeing as how your original is copy protected, this may pose a problem. If you are technical, here is how you can deprotect it:
Code:

  Cylinder 0, Top
    Sync = $AA25, Length = $2EC0

  Block 857
    Offset $F4
      Value = $2876E751
    Offset $F8
      Value = $AE9613F3
    Offset $FC
      Value = $AEA6B6EB

  Block 861
    Offset $48
      Value = $55B3898B
    Offset $A4
      Value = $4CC93DBF
    Offset $A8
      Value = $01ED69DF
    Offset $E4
      Value =   $DB175E55,$F3D89CBC,$6966557D,$87AA6CAB
	  	$989738D7,$A9E86BA3,$70DC7124,$F5C4F131
	  	$80CA5CA1,$AE7A0CE2,$AC8BBBF2,$7888429A
	  	$27F139F9,$2F7F4E6A,$6E91B365,$F5AA2F48
	  	$AF72DD5D,$2B78824D,$1D1A5B8D,$E86723AC
	  	$9B2642C7,$76139072,$54DBE185,$D4366BFF
	  	$C44D189D

1. Use Dumb Copy to make a Backup copy.
2. Modify the above block(s) starting with
   the offset(s) shown to the value(s) shown.
3. This will deprotect the disk.

If all of that is greek to you, ProjectD 3.16 will deprotect the game to a new disk (copy) which will in turn be adf'able. The existing copy on the net is a useless overdump.

Codetapper of some of the other WHD guys may want to contact you for an image of the original for making a hard-drive version, as well.

Twist, what do you mean by Dumb Copy?
Is this a copy program I don't know of?

Floppy disk

I just used DISK2FDI to dump Arctic Fox (not original), probably not cracked. I don't believe the parameter copiers actually crack it; instead, they duplicate the protection. DISK2FDI reported errors on Head 0, Side 1 and Head 1, Side 1. This copy behaves like all others I've tried, which makes me think that emulation is the problem, not protection.

Twist, can you upload ProjectD if you have it? Aminet and Google don't seem to produce any results.

What about WARPing it, DPainter?
A WARP is always the best way to get an original copy a HD-fixer or ADF-fixer can make use of.
PM me for details, if you've never worked with those tools before...

And now the bad news. Whoever created the dms file for that game did so in standard mode, rather than with the NOZERO switch set, resulting in a meager 62k file. Making it useless. (sigh)

Sorry for the tease above...that screenshot is from the ST version. Think of it as an incentive for DPainter to warp his copy!

Oh, and I keep meaning to reply to Andreas about his question regarding DUMB COPY from early in this thread. DUMB COPY is a mode in the copier program Mirror, which was (I believe) an early version of RawCopy. That mode is not in RawCopy (or at least not the last released version). If anyone would like, I can post Mirror, but you will need an original of the game and a real Amiga.

Thanks for your offer.
Well, I have a real amiga and original games, not that one, though. But this copyprog may be useful for other originals, too, so I'd appreciate it if you uploaded it.

OK, it's on my list to upload when I get home. And maybe anyone who has an original can use this method on theirs (if they can understand the somewhat cryptic instructions)...

Well, you need an ORIGINAL to make this work, otherwise you can't find these addresses because the crackers had already tampered with the code then...

As mentioned above, you need an original of the game and a copy of Mirror for that to work. The copy circulating on the net is an overdump and therefore worthless. But the copy that it was dumped from was deprotected, this I am sure of. The blocks you seek do not exist on this disk/adf.
