Floppy disk REQ: Amiga Mega Pak by Ozi Soft

If anyone has the above compact in ADF or DMS format I would appreciate a copy. I couldn't find it in planetemu's TOSEC archive so I assume it has not been TOSEC'd yet. Here is the HOL entry:

Thank you.

I'm responsible for the megapak stuff in HOL, but I can't find my adf copy. We had a lot of trouble getting error free adfs.

I have two original copies of MegaPak and both disks were riddled with errors, prob from a bad batch of disks as they have been stored carefully since they were bought new years ago. We did manage to get good copies of all the files on both disks by combining my two sets of disks with another copy and a bit of detective work by andreas. He should have clean adfs...

Thank you for the response, this sounds promising I'm constantly amazed at all the work needed in software preservation.

I should have the images somewhere too, just not sure where.

Incidently, you aren't missing that much! It, along with Ten BASIC games which was part of the Amiga Galactic Pack, are great examples of commercial releases that should have been in PD libraries...

I know I just want it for nostalgia reasons. We had this pack ~10 years ago with an A500, which was then sold at a garage sale before the family moved to the UK. We used to live in the northern suburbs of Canberra... [/offtopic]

Anyway, find the Amiga Mega Pak compilation in the Zone again (see HERE for access details), as well as in my personal folder on the FTP server. Enjoy!

Awesome...

looked over disk 2 from Lynk... found a bad checksum in sector 1113 but did run some games... got the evil guru meditation on disk 1... no bad sectors found though

how do I convert LHA to adf?

I still run my A500 (thanks to the usb stick disk drive) and I think it only runs adf... new to the emulation sides of this

Sorry mate, I missed this post. LHA is the most popular Amiga compression format, so it can't be converted to ADF.

LHA is supported by most decent PC archivers (e.g. WinRAR, 7-Zip, WinZip, ZipZag), so you can use them to unpack LHA archives on PC and copy the ADF's to the USB stick you use with the Gotek. It's more fiddly to do it on a standard A500, particularly if the Gotek has replaced the floppy drive in it.

Anyway, for your convenience, I've upped the ADF's of the Amiga Mega Pak compilation to my folder on the FTP server. Have fun!
