4 disks.

Just found the above original disks. Are they rare?
And would anyone like them uploaded, but there is a problem - they work fine on my A600, I dms the 4 disks, but I can't seem to get them beyond the title screens using an emulator. If anyone would like to have a go, let me know.

Have you tried undms'ing them onto real Amiga disks and trying them there first? Maybe they are copy-protected? If they aren't, by all means upload them!

Paul, are these the European releases rather then the N. American release? Not sure but seems to me a lot more of the European titles were disk based copy protected, but these titles I remember being published in the states under the Virgin/Mastertronic labels.

The Beau Jolly compilations were definitely UK releases.

Just undms'ed back to Amiga floppy, booted and they don't work. It did the same thing as the emulator. Tried original disks again. They work fine. So it looks as if there is some sort of protection, even though I can copy the files to HD!

Sorry can't upload working versions.

The NOZERO flag allows you to archive non-DOS data (not copy-protected data, however) like on Euro demos and cracked games which aren't stored on AmigaDOS disks. It will even archive deleted data that has not physically been purged from a disk.

So in your command line, you would type
DMS read MyDisk-1.dms NOZERO
